Introit

Collect

 

O God, Who by the fruitful virginity of blessed Mary hast bestowed upon mankind the rewards of eternal salvation: grant, we beseech Thee, that we may experience her intercession for us, through whom we have been made worthy to receive the Author of Life, Jesus Christ Thy Son, our Lord: Who with Thee liveth and reigneth.

 

Commemoration of Saint Telesphorus

 

Look forgivingly on Thy flock, Eternal Shepherd, and keep it in Thy constant protection, by the intercession of blessed Telesphorus, Thy Martyr and Sovereign Pontiff, whom Thou didst constitute Shepherd of the whole Church.  Through our Lord.

 

Epistle – Titus 2:11-15

 

Dearly beloved: The grace of God our Savior hath appeared to all men, instructing us, that, denying ungodliness and worldly desires, we should live soberly and justly and godly in this world, looking for the blessed hope and coming of the glory of the great God and our Savior Jesus Christ: Who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from all iniquity, and might cleanse to Himself a people acceptable, a pursuer of good works. These things speak and exhort: in Christ Jesus our Lord.

All the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God: sing joyfully to God, all the earth.  The Lord hath made known His salvation: He hath revealed His justice in the sight of the Gentiles.

Alleluia, alleluia.  God, Who in divers manners spoke in times past to the fathers by the prophets, last of all in these days hath spoken  to us by His Son.  Alleluia.

 

Gospel – Luke 2:21

 

At that time, after eight days were accomplished that the Child should be circumcised: His Name was called Jesus, which was called by the Angel before He was conceived in the womb.

May this Communion, O Lord, cleanse us from guilt: and through the intercession of the blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of God, make us sharers of the heavenly remedy.  Through the same our Lord.

 

Commemoration of Saint Telesphorus

 

Appeased by this Sacrifice, O Lord, in which Thou hast nourished Thy Church on heavenly food, do Thou so guide her that she may be steered with a firm hand and, while enjoying more liberty, may persist in wholeness of faith.  Through our Lord.
