ST PETER 9

           LESSON- Acts 2: 14-21

In diébus illis: Stans Petrus cum úndecim, levávit vocem suam, et locútus est eis: Viri Judæi, et qui habitátis Jerúsalem univérsis, hoc vobis notum sit, et áuribus percípte verba mea. Non enim, sicut vos æstimátis, hi ébrii sunt, cum sit hora diéi tértia: sed hoc est quod dictum est per prophétam Joél: Et erit in novíssimis diébus (dicit Dóminus) effúndam de Spíritu meo super omnem carnem, in prophetábunt fílii vestri et fíliæ vestræ et júvenes vestri visiónes vidébunt et senióres vestri somnia somniabunt. Et quidem super servos meos, et super ancíllas meas in diébus iilis effúndam de Spíritu meo, et prophetábunt: et dabo prodígia in cælo sursum, et signa in terra deórsum sánguinem

In those days, Peter standing up with the eleven, lifted up his voice and spoke to them: Ye men of Judea, and all you that dwell in Jerusalem, be this known to you, and with your ears receive my words. For these are not drunk, as you suppose, seeing it is but the third hour of the day; but this is that which was spoken of by the prophet Joel, And it shall come to pass in the last days (saith the Lord), I will pour out My spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams. And upon My servants indeed, and upon My handmaids, will I pour out, in those days, of My spirit; and they shall prophesy. And I will show wonders in the heaven above, and signs on the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke. The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and manifest day of the Lord come. And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord, shall be saved.

         FIRST ALLELUIA – Psalm 32: 6

Allelúia, allelúia. Verbo Dómini coeli firmáti sunt, et Spíritu oris ejus omnis virtus eórum Alleluia, alleluia.

By the word of the Lord the Heavens were established: and all the power of them by the spirit of His mouth.

Here the Gloria in excelsis is said.

V. The Lord be with you.

R. And with thy spirit.

                           COLLECT

Praesta, quæsumus, omnípotens et miséricors Deus: ut Spíritus Sanctus advéniens, templum nos glóriæ suæ dignánter inhabitándo perfíciat. Per Jesum Christum Fílium tuum, qui tecum vivit et regnat.

Grant, we beseech Thee, almighty and most merciful God, that the Holy Spirit, coming to us, may perfect us as a temple worthy the indwelling of His glory. Through Jesus Christ, Thy Son, Our Lord, Who liveth and reigneth.

              EPISTLE Acts 5: 12-16   

In diébus illis: Per manus Apostolórum fiébant signa et prodígia multa in plebe. Et erant unanímiter omnes in pórticu Salomónis. Ceterórum autem nemo audébat se conjúngere illis: sed magnificébat eos pópulus. Magis autem augebátur credéntium in Dómino multitúdo virórum ac mulíerum, ita ut in platéas ejicerent infírmos, et pónerent in léctulis ac grabátis, ut, veniénte Petro, saltem umbra illíus obumbráret quemquam illórum, et liberaréntur ab infirmitátibus suis. Concurrébat autem et multitúdo vicinárum civitútem Jerúsalem, afferéntes ægros, et vexátos a spirítibus immúndis: qui curabántur omnes.

In those days, by the hands of the apostles, were many signs and wonders wrought among the people. And they were all with one accord in Solomon’s porch. But of the rest no man durst join himself with them: but the people magnified them. And the multitude of men and women that believed in the Lord was more increased; insomuch that they brought forth the sick into the streets, and laid them on beds and couches, that when Peter came, his shadow at least might overshadow any of them, and they might be delivered from their infirmities. And there came also together to Jerusalem a multitude out of the neighboring cities, bringing sick persons, and such as were troubled with unclean spirits, who were all healed.

          SECOND ALLELUIA

                       (All kneel)

Alleluia. Veni, Sancte Spíritus, reple tuórum corda fidélium: et tui amóris in eis ignem accénde.

Alleluia. Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of Thy faithful: and kindle in them the fire of Thy love.

THE GIFT OF FORTITUDE

The Gift of Fortitude is a permanent power which the Holy Ghost communicates to our will to assist us in overcoming the difficulties which might deter us in the practice of what is right.

                     SEQUENCE

              Veni Sancte Spiritus

Veni, sancte Spíritus, Et emítte cælitus Lucis tuæ rádium. Veni pater páuperum, Veni dator múnerum,Veni lumen córdium. Consolátor óptime, Dulcis hospes ánimæ, Dulce refrigérum.

In labóre réquies, In æstu tempéries, In fletu solátium. O Lux beatíssima, Reple cordis íntima Tuórum fidélium. Sine tuo númine, Nihil est in hómine, Nihil est innoxium. Lava quod est sórdidium, Riga quod est áridum, Sana quod est sáucium.

Flecte quod est rígidium, Fove quod est frígidium, Rege quod est dévium. Da tuis fidélibus, In te confidéntibus, Sacrum septenárium. Da virtutútis méritum, Da salútis éxitum, Da perénne gáudium. Amen. Allelúia.

Come Thou Holy Spirit, come, and from Thy celestial home shed a ray of light divine. Come, Thou Father of the poor, come, Thou source of all our store, come, within our bosoms shrine, Thou of Comforters the best, Thou the soul’s delightful guest, sweet refreshment here below.

In our labour rest most sweet, pleasant coolness in the heat, Solace in the midst of woe.O most blessed Light divine, shine within these hearts of Thine, and our inmost being fill. Where Thou art not, man hath nought, nothing good in deed or thought, nothing free from taint of ill.

Heal our wounds, our strength renew, on our dryness pour Thy dew, wash the stains of guilt away.  Bend the stubborn heart and will, melt the frozen, warm the chill, guide the steps that go astray.

On Thy faithful who adore, and confess Thee evermore, in Thy sevenfold gifts descend. Give them virtue’s sure reward, give them Thy salvation, Lord, give them joys that never end. Amen. Alleluia.

precious blood day 24

               GOSPEL – John 6: 44-52

In illo témpore: Dixit Jesus turbis Judæórum:   Nemo potest veníre ad me, nisi Pater, qui misit me, traxerit eum: et ego resuscitábo eum in novíssimo die. Est scriptum in prophétis: Et erunt omnes docíbiles Dei. Omnis, qui audívit a Patre, et dídicit, venit ad me. Non quia Patrem vidit quisquam, nisi is, qui est a Deo, hic vidit Patrem. Amen, amen dico vobis: qui credit in me, habet vitam ætérnam. Ego sum panis vitæ. Patres vestri manducavérunt manna in desérto, et mórtui sunt. Hic est panis de coelo descéndens: ut si quis ex ipso manducáverit, non moriátur. Ego sum panis vivus, qui de coelo. descéndi. Si quis manducáverit ex hoc pane, vivet in ætérnum: et panis, quem ego dabo, caro mea est pro mundi vita.

At that time, Jesus said to the multitude of Jews: No man can come to Me, except the Father, Who hath sent Me, draw him; and I will raise him up in the last day. It is written in the prophets: And they shall all be taught of God. Every one that hath heard of the Father, and hath learned, cometh to Me. Not that any man hath seen the Father, but He who is of God, He hath seen the Father. Amen, amen, I say unto to you, he that believeth in Me hath everlasting life. I am the bread of life. Your fathers did eat manna in the desert, and are dead. This is the bread which cometh down from Heaven, that, if any man eat of it, he may not die. I am the living bread which came down from heaven. If any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever; and the bread that I will give, is My flesh for the life of the world.

         OFFERTORY – Psalm 118: 47, 48

Meditabor in mandátis tuis, quæ diléxi valde: et levábo manus meas ad mandáta tua, quæ diléxi, allelúia.

I will meditate on Thy commandments, which I have loved exceedingly: and I will lift up my hands to Thy commandments, which I have loved, alleluia.

                SECRET

Accipe, quæsumus, Dómine, munus oblátum: et dignanter operáre; ut quod mystériis ágimus, piis efféctibus celebrémus. Per Dóminum.

Receive, we beseech Thee, O Lord, the gifts we offer: and graciously bring about that, what we here do in these mysteries, we may hereafter by their holy consequences hold in honour. Through our Lord.

           PREFACE OF PENTECOST

Vere dignum et justum est, æquum et salutáre, nos tibi semper, et ubíque grátias ágere: Dómine sancte, Pater omnípotens ætérne Deus: per Christum Dóminum nostrum Qui ascéndens super omnes coelos, sedénsque ad déxteram tuam, promíssum Spíritum Sanctum hodiérna die in filíos adoptiónis effúdit, Qua própter profúsis gáudiís, totus in orbe terrárum mundus exsúltat. Sed et supérnæ Vírtútes, atque angélicæ Potestátes, hymnum glóriæ tuæ cóncinunt, sine fine dicéntes.

It is truly meet and just, right and availing unto salvation, that we should at all times and in all places give thanks unto Thee, O holy Lord, Father almighty and everlasting God; through Christ our Lord. Who ascending above all the heavens, and sitting at Thy right hand, on this day sent forth the Holy Ghost, as He had promised, on the children of adoption. Wherefore does the whole world rejoice with exceeding great joy; the hosts above and also the angelic powers join in singing the hymn to Thy glory, saying without ceasing:

SANCTUS, Sanctus, Sanctus, Dominus Deus Sabaoth. Pleni sunt caeli et terra gloria tua.

             Sanctus, Sanctus, Sanctus…

                     Holy, Holy, Holy…

           COMMUNION – John 14: 27

Pacem, relínquo vobis, allelúia: pacem meam do vobis, allelúia, allelúia.

My peace I leave you, alleluia: My peace I give you, alleluia, alleluia.

                 POSTCOMMUNION

Sumentes, Dómine, coeléstia sacraménta, quæsumus cleméntiam tuam: ut, quod temporáliter, gérimus, ætérnis gáudiis consequémur. Per Dominum.

 

Receiving Thy Heavenly sacrament, we beg Thy clemency, O Lord, that what we do in this life we may follow in the joys of eternity. Through our Lord.
