December 5 – Saint Sabbas, Abbot (W), Propers of the Mass – 1962 Missal

Introit

 

The mouth of the just shall meditate wisdom and his tongue shall speak judgement: the law of his God is in his heart.  (Psalm) Be not emulous of evildoers: nor envy them that work iniquity.  Glory be to the Father.  The mouth of the just…

 

Collect

 

May the intercession of blessed Sabbas, the Abbot commend us to Thee, we beseech Thee, O Lord: so that what we cannot acquire by any merits of ours, we may obtain by his patronage.  Through our Lord.

 

Epistle – Ecclesiasticus 45:1-6

 

Beloved of God and men, whose memory is in benediction. He made him like the Saints in glory, and magnified him in the fear of his enemies, and with his words he made prodigies to cease. He glorified him in the sight of kings, and gave him commandments in the sight of his people, and showed him His glory. He sanctified him in his faith and meekness, and chose him out of all flesh. For He heard him and his voice, and brought him into a cloud.  And He gave him commandment before His face, and a law of life and instruction.

 

Gradual

 

Lord, Thou hast prevented him with blessings of sweetness: Thou hast set on his head a crown of precious stones.  He asked life of Thee, and Thou hast given him length of days for ever and ever.

 

Alleluia

 

Alleluia, alleluia.  The just shall flourish like the palm tree: he shall grow up like the cedar of Libanus.  Alleluia.

 

Gospel – Matthew 19:27-29

 

At that time, Peter said to Jesus: Behold we have left all things and have followed Thee: what therefore shall we have? And Jesus said to them: Amen I say to you, that you, who have followed Me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit on the seat of His majesty, you also shall sit on twelve seats, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. And every one that hath left house, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for My name’s sake, shall receive an hundredfold and shall possess life everlasting.

 

Offertory

 

Thou hast given him his heart’s desire, O Lord, and hast not withholden from him the will of his lips: Thou hast set on his head a crown of precious stones.

 

Secret

 

May the holy Abbot Sabbas, we beseech Thee, O Lord, obtain by his prayers that the Sacrifice laid on Thy holy altar may profit us unto salvation. Through our Lord.

 

Communion

 

The faithful and wise servant, whom his lord setteth over his family, to give them their measure of wheat in due season.

 

Post Communion

 

May the pleading of blessed Sabbas the Abbot for us, as well as the reception of Thy Sacrament, protect us, O Lord, that we may both share in the glory of his works, and receive the help of his intercession.  Through our Lord.
