Missa "Jubiláte Deo"

WHITE Vestments



       On this Third Sunday After Easter, the Church rejoices because Christ is risen again and has redeemed us (Alleluia); and so she utters cries of joy (Introit) and sings the praises of God (Offertory).

       A little while, and now you shall not see Me, and you shall lament and weep," Jesus said in His last discourse to His disciples; "and again a little while, and you shall see Me, and your heart shall rejoice"

       The Apostles, when again they saw Christ risen from the dead, were filled with the same joy to which the liturgical services for Easter give expression this day; and seeing that Easter is but a figure of the eternal Pasch, the Church will experience a similar joy when, having brought forth in sorrow souls to God, she sees Jesus again in His triumphant entry into Heaven. "He will turn our sorrow then into joy, which no man shall take from us" (Gospel).

       The head of the Church, moreover, states in the Epistle that we are here only as strangers and pilgrims, and he enumerates the positive and negative precepts to be observed in order that those "who profess themselves Christians may be able to reject those things which disgrace the name and follow those which are becoming to it" (Collect).

      We want to thank the Friends of Fatima for these Proper resources. Sources: Saint Andrew Daily Missal and the Marian Missal , 1945


Epistle: 1 Peter 2: 11 - 19

11 Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, to refrain yourselves from carnal desires, which war against the soul,

    Commentary on Verse 11 I beseech you....to refrain, &c. from all unlawful and disorderly passions, that the Gentiles not yet converted may have nothing to blame in your lives and conversation, but may be edified and induced to praise God. (Witham)

12 Having your conversation good among the Gentiles: that whereas they speak against you as evil doers, by your good works, they may glorify God in the day of visitation.

    Commentary on Verse 12 In the day of visitation. God is said to visit his people, sometimes by afflictions and punishments, and sometimes by graces and favours. Some think St. Peter here, by the day of visitation, means the approaching destruction of Jerusalem by the Romans, and that the sense is, that the heathen Romans seeing your peaceable dispositions and pious conversations, may have a favourable opinion of the Christian religion, and be converted. Others, that you and they to whom the gospel is preached, may glorify God when he visits them with graces and favours, whether exterior or interior. (Witham) --- Be careful not to give occasion to scandal. Detraction is the life of the world, and piety is most exposed to its shafts, because it most condemns the maxims of its followers.
13 Be ye subject, therefore, to every human creature for God's sake: whether it be to the king as excelling:
    Commentary on Verse 13 To every human creature, to every one whom the order of Providence has placed over you, whether it be to emperors or kings, who have the supreme power in kingdoms, or to governors of provinces; obey your temporal princes, though heathens and idolaters, (as the Roman emperors were at that time enemies to the Christian religion) in all that is not sinful and against the law of God: for this is the will of God, and all power is from God. See Romans xiii. In like manner (ver. 18.) servants must be subject and obey their masters, though they be infidels. See 1 Corinthians vii. By this you will silence the ignorance and calumnies of foolish men, who pretended that the Christian religion taught them to be disobedient to princes, and to be subjects of Christ only, their supreme spiritual king. (Witham)

14 Or to governors, as sent by him for the punishment of evil doers, and for the praise of the good:

15 For so is the will of God, that by doing well you may silence the ignorance of foolish men:

16 As free, and not as making liberty a cloak for malice, but as the servants of God.

    Commentary on Verse 16 As free; to wit, from the slavery of sin, but take care not to make this Christian freedom and liberty a cloak for malice, as they do, who pretend that this makes subjects free from their obedience to temporal princes and magistrates; or servants free from the obedience due to their masters, even when they are froward, ill-humoured, or cross to them. (Witham) --- There were some heretics in the days of St. Peter, as there are at present, who under pretext of evangelical liberty seek to be free from all even lawful subjection, and thus set themselves above the ordinances of both civil and ecclesiastical power.
17 Honour all men: love the brotherhood: fear God: honour the king:

18 Servants, be subject to your masters with all fear, not only to the good, and gentle, but also to the froward.

19 For this is praiseworthy, if for conscience towards God, a man endure sorrows, suffering wrongfully.

    Commentary on Verse 19 Take notice that this is praiseworthy, an effect of God's grace, a thing acceptable to God, when you suffer injuries patiently; whereas it is no glory, nothing that deserves commendation or reward, either before God or man, to suffer for doing ill, as a malefactor, who deserves punishments. But it is glorious and meritorious for you to suffer as Christians, and for the Christian faith: be not then ashamed to suffer in this manner. These sufferings are marks of God's favour towards you, and you have the example of Christ, which you must imitate. (Witham)


Gospel: John 16: 16-22

16 At that time Jesus said to His disciples: A little while, and now you shall not see Me, and again a little while, and you shall see Me: because I go to the Father.

    Commentary on Verse 16 A little while, and now you shall not see Me, &c. Many expound these words in this manner: that after a little while, you shall not see me, because even to-morrow, I shall be taken from you by death: and again, after a little while, you shall see me, because the third day I shall rise again, and converse with you, till My ascension. St. Augustine gives another interpretation, (tract. 101.) that by the first little while, may be understood, the short time till Christ's Ascension, and by the latter little while, the short time that the apostles were to live in this world; after which they should see, and enjoy Christ for ever in the kingdom of Heaven. And this exposition seems to agree better with the following promise. (Witham) --- In a few hours, I shall be separated from you, to be delivered up to My enemies, and put to the cruel death of the cross; and after a short time, I shall rise again; then you shall see Me in My new state of glory. St. Chrysostom, both Sts. Cyrils, Theophylactus, Euthymius, St. Augustine, and others, interpret this verse differently; thus: Not long hence, I shall be entirely separated from you; you shall not see Me, because I shall go to the Father, by My Ascension; but you shall see Me again, after a short time, at My second coming, to judge the living and the dead. All the time, that shall pass between My Ascension, and My second coming, is in the eyes of God only as a moment. For a thousand years in Thy sight are but as yesterday, which is past and gone. (Psalm lxxxix. ver. 4.) And the apostle calls all time a moment, a time that soon passes. (1 Corinthians vii. and 2 Corinthians iv.)
17 Then some of the disciples said one to another, What is this that He saith to us: A little while, and you shall not see Me, and again a little while, and you shall see Me: and because I go to the Father?

18 They said therefore, What is this that He saith, A little while? we know not what He speaketh.

19 And Jesus knew that they wished to ask Him: and He said to them: Of this do you inquire among yourselves, because I said, A little while, and you shall not see Me; and again a little while, and you shall see Me.

20 Amen, amen, I say to you, that you shall lament and weep, but the world shall rejoice; and you shall be made sorrowful, but your sorrow shall be turned into joy.

    Commentary on Verse 20 Your sorrow shall be turned into joy, chiefly at the end of your mortal life; then you shall have a joy, never to be taken from you. (Witham)
21 A woman, when she is in labor, hath sorrow, because her hour is come: but when she hath brought forth the child, she remembereth no more the anguish, for joy that a man is born into the world.

22 So also you now indeed have sorrow; but I will see you again, and your heart shall rejoice: and your joy no man shall take from you.

    Commentary on Verse 22 The joy you will feel at my resurrection, shall ever be unalterable, and unremitting, because there I shall give you assurances and proofs of your future resurrection, and immortality. As you have been partakers in my labours, in my ignominies, and in my sorrows, so also shall you have a share in my glory, in my resurrection, and immortal bliss. Behold, these will rise to your ever unalterable and permanent joy. This is the opinion of St. Chrysostom, St. Cyril, Theophylactus, and others.

      EPISTLE:   1 Peter 2: 11-19
      Léctio Epístolæ beati Petri Apóstoli. Caríssimi, Obsecro vos tamquam ádvenas, et peregrínos abstinére vos a carnálibus desidériis, quæ mílitant advérsus ánimam, conversatiónem vestram inter gentes habéntes bonam: ut in eo, quod detréctant de vobis tamquam de malefactóribus, ex bonis opéribus vos considerántes, gloríficent Deum in die visitatiónis. Subjécti ígitur estóte omni humánæ creatúra propter Deum: sive regi, quasi præcellénti: sive dúcibus, tamquam ab eo missis ad vindíctam malefactórum, laudem vero bonórum: quia sic est volúntas Dei, ut benefaciéntes obmutéscere faciétis imprudént-ium hóminum ignorántiam: quasi líberi, et non quasi velámen habéntes malítiæ libertátem, sed sicut servi Dei. Omnes honoráte: fraternitátem dilígite: Deum timéte: regem honorificáte. Servi, súbditi estóte in omni timóre dóminis, non tantum bonis, et modéstis, sed etiam dyscolis. Hæc est ením grátia: in Christo Jesu Dómino nostro.
      Deo Gratias.
      Lesson from the first Epistle of Blessed Peter the Apostle. Dearly beloved, I beseech you, as strangers and pilgrims, to refrain yourselves from carnal desires, which war against the soul, having your conversation good among the Gentiles: that whereas they speak against you as evil-doers, they may, by the good works which they shall behold in you, glorify God in the day of visitation. Be ye subject therefore to every human creature for God's sake: whether it be to the king as excelling, or to governors as sent by him for the punishment of evil-doers and for the praise of the good: for so is the will of God, that by doing well you may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men: as free, and not as making liberty a cloak for malice, but as the servants of God. Honor all men: love the brotherhood: fear God: honor the king. Servants, be subject to your masters with all fear, not only to the good and gentle, but also to the froward. For this is thankworthy before God: in Christ Jesus our Lord.
      Thanks be to God.

      In illo témpore: Dixit Jesus discípulis suis: "Módicum, et jam non vidébitis me, et íterum módicum, et vidébitis me: quia vado ad Patrem." Dixérunt ergo ex discípulis ejus ad ínvicem: Quid est hoc, quod dicit nobis: Módicum, et non vidébitis me: et íterum modicum, et vidébitis me, at quia vado ad Patrem? Dicébant ergo: Quid est hoc, quod dicit, Móodicum? nescímus quid lóquitur. Cognóvit autem Jesus, quia volébant eum interrogáre, et dixit eis: "De hoc quæritis inter vos, quis dixi, Módicum, et non vidébitis me: et íterum módicum, et vidébitis me? Amen, amen dico vobis: quia plorábitis, et flébitis vos, mundus autem gaudébit: vos vero contristabímini, sed tristítia vestra vertétur in gáudium. Múlier cum parit, tristítlam habet, quis venit hora ejus: cum autem pepérerit púerum, jam non méminit pressúre propter gáudium: quia natus est homo in mundum. Et vos ígitur nunc quidem tristítiam habétis: íterum autem vidébo vas, et gaudébit cor vestrum: et gáudium vestrum nemo tollet a vobis."
      Laus tibi Christe.

      At that time. Jesus said to His disciples: "A little while, and now you shall not see Me: and again a little while, and you shall see Me: because I go to the Father." Then some of His disciples said one to another: what is this that He saith to us: A little while, and you shall not see Me: and again a little while, and you shall see Me: because I go to the Father? They said therefore: What is this that He saith, A little while? We know not what He speaketh. And Jesus knew that they had a mind to ask Him. And He said to them: Of this do you inquire among yourselves, because I said: A little while, and you shall not see Me: and again a little while, and you shall see Me? Amen, amen, I say to you, that you shall lament and weep, but the world shall rejoice: and you shall be made sorrowful, but your sorrow shall be turned into joy. A woman, when she is in labor, hath sorrow, because her hour is come: but when she hath brought forth the child, she remembereth no more the anguish, for joy that a man is born into the world. So also you now indeed have sorrow: but I will see you again and your heart shall rejoice: and your joy no man shall take from you."

Ipse enim verus est Agnus qui ábstulit peccáta mundi. Qui mortem nostram moriéndo destrúxit, et vitam resurgéndo reparávit. Et ídeo cum Angelis et Archángelis, cum Thronis et Dóminatiónibus, cumque omni milítia cæléstis exércitus, hymnum glóriæ tuæ cánimus sine fine dicentes:
      SANCTUS, SANCTUS, SANCTUS...

      It is truly meet and just, right and for our salvation, at all times to praise Thee, O Lord, but more gloriously especially at this time above others when Christ our Pasch was sacrificed. For He is the true Lamb Who hath taken away the sins of the world: Who by dying hath destroyed our death: and by rising again hath restored us to life. And therefore with Angels and Archangels, with Thrones and Dominations, and with all the hosts of the heavenly army, we sing the hymn of Thy glory, evermore saying:
