Collect

 

O God, Who, by the humility of Thy Son, didst lift up a fallen world, grant unending happiness to Thy faithful: that those whom Thou hast snatched from the perils of endless death, Thou mayest cause to rejoice in everlasting joys.. Through the same our Lord.

 

Commemoration of Saint Anicletus

 

O God, who didst solidly found Thy Church on the apostolic rock and dost shield her from the dreaded gates of hell, grant, we beseech Thee, through the intercession of blessed Anicletus, Thy Martyr and Sovereign Pontiff, that under Thy sure protection she may persevere in Thy truth.  Through our Lord.

 

Epistle – I Peter 2:21-25

 

Dearly beloved, Christ suffered for us, leaving you an example, that you should follow His steps, Who did no sin, neither was guile found in His mouth. Who when He was reviled, did not revile: when He suffered, He threatened not, but delivered Himself to him that judged Him unjustly: Who His own self bore our sins in His body upon the tree: that we, being dead to sins, should live to justice: by Whose stripes you were healed. For you were as sheep going astray, but you are now converted to the Shepherd and Bishop of your souls.

 

Pascal Alleluia

 

Alleluia, alleluia.  The disciples knew the Lord Jesus in the breaking of bread.

 

Alleluia.  I am the good Shepherd: and I know My sheep, and Mine know Me.  Alleluia.

 

Gospel – John 10:11-16

 

At that time Jesus said to the Pharisees:  I am the good Shepherd. The good Shepherd giveth His life for His sheep. But the hireling, and he that is not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth: and the wolf catcheth and scattereth the sheep: and the hireling fleeth, because he is a hireling and he hath no care for the sheep. I am the good Shepherd: and I know Mine, and Mine know Me, as the Father knoweth Me, and I know the Father: and I lay down My life for My sheep.

 

And other sheep I have that are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear My voice, and there shall be one fold and one shepherd.

 

Offertory

 

O God, my God, to Thee do I watch break of day: and in Thy name I will lift up my hands; alleluia.

 

Secret

 

May this holy offering, O Lord, always bring to us Thy healing blessing: that what it represents in a mystery, it may accomplish with power. Through our Lord.

 

Commemoration of Saint Anicletus

 

Kindly receive, O Lord, the gifts which in our joy we offer Thee: and grant, by the intercession of blessed Anicletus, that Thy Church may rejoice in integrity of faith and delight in quiet days.  Through our Lord.

I am the good Shepherd, alleluia: and I know My sheep, and Mine know Me, alleluia, alleluia.

 

Post Communion

 

Grant unto us, we beseech Thee, almighty God, that we who receive the grace of new life, may ever glory in Thy gift.  Through our Lord.

 

Commemoration of Saint Anicletus

 

Multiply in Thy Church, we beseech Thee, O Lord, the spirit of grace which Thou hast bestowed: so that, by the prayers of blessed Anicletus, Thy Martyr and Supreme Pontiff, neither shall the flock be lacking in obedience to the Shepherd nor the Shepherd be lacking in watchfulness over the flock.  Through our Lord.

April 14 – Saint Justin, Martyr (R), Propers of the Mass – 1962 Missal

 

Introit

 

The wicked have told me fables, but not as Thy law; but I spoke of Thy testimonies before kings, and I was not ashamed. (Psalm) Blessed are the undefiled in the way, who walk in the law of the Lord.  Glory be to the Father.  The wicked…

 

Collect

 

O God, Who through the foolishness of the cross didst teach the blessed Martyr Justin the surpassing knowledge of Jesus Christ: enable us by his intercession to put away all deceits of error and obtain steadfastness of faith.  Through the same our Lord.

 

Epistle – I Corinthians 1:18-25,30

 

Brethren, the word of the cross, to them indeed that perish, is foolishness; but to them that are saved, that is, to us, it is the power of God. For it is written: I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and the prudence of the prudent I will reject. Where is the wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the disputer of this world? Hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?

 

For seeing that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of our preaching to save them that believe. For both the Jews require signs, and the Greeks seek after wisdom: but we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews indeed a stumblingblock, and unto the Gentiles foolishness; but unto them that are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God. For the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men.

 

But of him are you in Christ Jesus, Who of God is made unto us wisdom, and justice, and sanctification, and redemption.

 

Pascal Alleluia

 

Alleluia, alleluia.  The wisdom of this world is foolishness with God, for it is written: The Lord knoweth the thoughts of the wise, that they are vain.

 

Alleluia.  Furthermore, I count all things to be but loss, for the excellent knowledge of Jesus Christ my Lord.  Alleluia.

 

Gospel – Luke 12:2-8

 

At that time Jesus said to His disciples: There is nothing covered that shall not be revealed: nor hidden, that shall not be known. For whatsoever things you have spoken in darkness, shall be published in the light; and that which you have spoken in the ear in the chambers shall be preached on the housetops. And I say to you, my friends: Be not afraid of them who kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do. But I will show you Whom you shall fear: fear ye Him Who, after He hath killed, hath power to cast into hell. Yea, I say to you, fear Him.

 

Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings, and not one of them is forgotten before God? Yea, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not, therefore: you are of more value than many sparrows. And I say to you: Whosoever shall confess Me before men, him shall the Son of man also confess before the Angels of God.

 

Offertory

 

For I judged not myself to know anything among you, but Jesus Christ and Him crucified.

 

Secret

 

Graciously receive, O Lord God, these our oblations: the wondrous mystery of which Thy holy Martyr Justin resolutely defended against the calumny of the ungodly.  Through our Lord.

 

Communion

 

There is laid up for me a crown of justice, which the Lord, the just Judge, will render to me in that day.

 

Post Communion

 

We, who have been refreshed with heavenly food, humbly beseech Thee, O Lord, that following the teaching of blessed Justin, Thy Martyr, we may ever give thanks for the gifts which we have received.  Through our Lord.

Collect

 

O God, Who didst teach blessed Hermenegild, Thy Martyr, to choose the heavenly kingdom rather than an earthly throne: grant us, we beseech Thee, that following his example, we may despise the fleeting things of time and seek what is eternal.  Through our Lord.

 

Epistle – Wisdom 5:1-5

 

Then shall the just stand with great constancy against those that have afflicted them and taken away their labors. These seeing it, shall be troubled with terrible fear, and shall be amazed at the suddenness of their unexpected salvation, saying within themselves, repenting, and groaning for anguish of spirit: These are they whom we had some time in derision and for a parable of reproach. We fools esteemed their life madness and their end without honor; behold how they are numbered among the children of God, and their lot is among the Saints.

 

Pascal Alleluia

 

Alleluia, alleluia.  The heavens shall confess Thy wonders, O Lord: and Thy truth in the Church of the Saints.

 

Alleluia.  Thou hast set on his head, O Lord, a crown of precious stones.  Alleluia.

 

Gospel – Luke 14:26-35

 

At that time, Jesus said to His disciples: If any man come to Me, and hate not his father and mother and wife and children and brethren and sisters, yea and his own life also, he cannot be My disciple. And whosoever doth not carry his cross and come after Me cannot be My disciple. For which of you, having a mind to build a tower, doth not first sit down and reckon the charges that are necessary, whether he have wherewithal to finish it: lest, after he hath laid the foundation and is not able to finish it, all that see it begin to mock him, saying: This man began to build and was not able to finish.

 

Or what king about to go to make war against another king, doth not first sit down and think whether he be able with ten thousand to meet him that with twenty thousand cometh against him? Or else, whilst the other is yet afar off, sending an embassy, he desireth conditions of peace. So likewise every one of you that doth not renounce all that he possesseth cannot be my disciple.

 

Salt is good: but if the salt shall lose its savor, wherewith shall it be seasoned? It is neither profitable for the land, nor for the dunghill, but shall be cast out. He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.

 

Offertory

 

The heavens shall confess Thy wonders, O Lord, and Thy truth in the Church of the Saints, alleluia, alleluia.

 

Secret

 

Receive our gifts and our prayers, we beseech Thee, O Lord; cleanse us by the heavenly mysteries and mercifully hear us.  Through our Lord.

 

Communion

 

The just shall rejoice in the Lord, and shall hope in Him: and all the upright in heart shall be praised, alleluia, alleluia.

 

Post Communion

 

Grant, we beseech Thee, O Lord, our God: that as we rejoice on earth in keeping the memory of Thy saints, so also we may enjoy their company for evermore.  Through our Lord.

Collect

 

Grant, we beseech Thee, almighty God, that we who have celebrated the Pascal Feast, may, by Thy bounty, retain its fruits in our daily habits and behavior.  Through our Lord.

 

Epistle – I John 5:4-10

 

Dearly beloved: Whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory, which overcometh the world, our faith. Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?

 

This is He that came by water and blood, Jesus Christ: not by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit Which testifieth that Christ is the truth. And there are three Who give testimony in heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one. And there are three that give testimony on earth: the Spirit and the water and the blood; and these three are one. If we receive the testimony of men, the testimony of God is greater: for this is the testimony of God, which is greater, because He hath testified of His Son. He that believeth in the Son of God hath the testimony of God in himself. 

 

Pascal Alleluia

 

Alleluia, alleluia.  On the day of My Resurrection, saith the Lord, I will go before you into Galilee.

 

Alleluia.  After eight days, the doors being shut, Jesus stood in the midst of His disciples and said: Peace be to you.  Alleluia.

 

Gospel – John 20:19-31

 

At that time, when it was late that same day, the first of the week, and the doors were shut, where the disciples were gathered together for fear of the Jews, Jesus came, and stood in the midst and said to them: Peace be to you. And when He had said this, He showed them His hands and His side. The disciples therefore were glad, when they saw the Lord.

 

He said therefore to them again: Peace be to you. As the Father hath sent Me, I also send you. When He had said this, He breathed on them, and He said to them, Receive ye the Holy Ghost: Whose sins you shall forgive, they are forgiven them: and whose sins you shall retain, they are retained. 

 

Now Thomas, one of the twelve, who is called Didymus, was not with them when Jesus came. The other disciples therefore said to him: We have seen the Lord. But he said to them: Except I shall see in His hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the place of the nails, and put my hand into His side, I will not believe.

 

And after eight days, again His disciples were within, and Thomas with them. Jesus cometh, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said: Peace be to you. Then He saith to Thomas: Put in thy finger hither, and see My hands, and bring hither thy hand, and put it into My side; and be not faithless, but believing. Thomas answered and said to Him: My Lord and my God. Jesus saith to him: Because thou hast seen Me, Thomas, thou hast believed; blessed are they that have not seen, and have believed. 

 

Many other signs also did Jesus in the sight of His disciples, which are not written in this book.  But these are written, that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God: and that, believing, you may have life in His name.

 

Offertory

 

An Angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and said to the women: He Whom you seek is risen, as He said, alleluia.

 

Secret

 

Receive, we beseech Thee, O Lord, the gifts of Thine exultant Church: and to whom Thou hast given cause for so great joy, grant the fruit of perpetual happiness.  Through our Lord.

Put in thy hand, and know the place of the nails, alleluia; and be not faithless, but believing, alleluia, alleluia.

 

Post Communion

 

We beg Thee, O Lord our God, that these sacred and holy mysteries which Thou hast given us to safeguard our rebirth, may be for us a remedy both now and in the future.  Through our Lord.

Epistle – 1 Peter 5:1-4,10-11

 

Dearly beloved, the ancients therefore that are among you, I beseech, who am myself also an ancient, and a witness of the sufferings of Christ: as also a partaker of that glory which is to be revealed in time to come: feed the flock of God which is among you, taking care of it, not by constraint, but willingly, according to God: not for filthy lucre’s sake, but voluntarily: neither as lording it over the clergy, but being made a pattern of the flock from the heart. And when the prince of pastors shall appear, you shall receive a never fading crown of glory.

 

But the God of all grace, Who hath called us into his eternal glory in Christ Jesus, after you have suffered a little, will Himself perfect you, and confirm you, and establish you.  To Him be glory and empire for ever and ever. Amen.

Alleluia.  Thou shalt make them princes over all the earth: they shall remember Thy name, O Lord.  Alleluia.

 

Gospel – Matthew 16:13-19

 

At that time, Jesus came into the quarters of Caesarea Philippi: and He asked His disciples saying: Whom do men say that the Son of man is? But they said: Some, John the Baptist, and other some, Elias, and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets. Jesus saith to them: But whom do you say that I am?

 

Simon Peter answered, and said: Thou art Christ, the Son of the living God. And Jesus answering, said to him: Blessed art thou, Simon Bar-Jona: because flesh and blood hath not revealed it to thee, but My Father who is in heaven: and I say to thee: That thou art Peter; and upon this rock I will build My Church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it; and to thee I will give the keys of the kingdom of heaven; and whatsoever thou shalt bind upon earth, it shall be bound also in heaven; and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth, it shall be loosed also in heaven.

 

Offertory

 

Behold I have given My words in thy mouth: lo, I have set thee over the nations, and over kingdoms, to root up, and to pull down, and to build, and to plant.

Thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build My Church.

 

Post Communion

 

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.
