Missa "Exáudi, Dómine"
Fifth Sunday After Pentecost
within the Octave of Sts. Peter and Paul


Semi-Double Observance of the Fifth Sunday After Pentecost

Missa "Exáudi, Dómine"

GREEN Vestments


       The liturgy presents to us today a great lesson in Christian charity. We must live in union with one another. We are the children of God, and we must love Him in our neighbor, who participates as we do in the divine nature.

        The week of the Fifth Sunday after Pentecost used to be called the week after the Feast of the Apostles, for it is among those which rather often coincide with the Feast of the Holy Apostles Peter and Paul. The Mass as presented to us by the Church on this day contains a great lesson in Christian Charity. We must live in union. Having entered the Church - the Kingdom of the Father - we are the children of God, and we must love Him in our neighbor who participates as we do in the divine- nature.

        Indeed the Epistle and Gospel show us that our prayer is of value only if we are all of one heart in unison with God's will, not man's. If not, it is vain, and the Collect makes us ask God to grant us His love, as it is our love for God which is the motive of our love for our neighbor.

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

EPISTLE:   1 Peter 3: 8-16


Léctio Epístolæ beáti Pauli Apóstoli ad Romanos. Fratres, Exístimo quad non sunt condígnæ passiónes hujus tempóris ad futúram glóriam, quas revelábítur in nobis. Nam exspectátio creatúræ revelatiónem Fíliórum Dei exspéctat. Vanitáti enim creatúra subjécta est non volens, sed propter cum qui subjécit eam in spe: quia et ipsa creatúra liberábitur a servitúte corruptiónis in libertátem glóriæ filiórum Dei. Scimus enim quad omnis creatúra ingemíscit, et párturit usque adhuc. Non solum autem illa, sed et nos ipsi primitías Spíritus habéntes, et ipsi intra nos gémimus, adoptiónem filiórum Dei exspectántes, redemptiónem córporis nostri: in Christo Jesu Dómino nostro.
Deo Gratias.

Lesson from the first Epistle of Blessed Peter the Apostle. Dearly beloved Be ye all of one mind, having compassion one of another, being lovers of the brotherhood, merciful, modest, humble, not rendering evil for evil, nor railing for railing, but contrariwise, blessing: for unto this you are called, that you may inherit a blessing. For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile. Let him decline from evil and do good let him seek after peace, and pursue it because the eyes of the Lord are upon the just, and His ears unto their prayers, but the countenance of the Lord is against them that do evil things, And who is he that can hurt you, if you be zealous of good? But if also you suffer anything for justice' sake, blessed are ye. And be not afraid of their fear, and be not troubled: but sanctify the Lord Christ in your hearts.
Thanks be to God.

GRADUAL:  Ps. 83: 10, 9


Protéctor noster áspice, Deus: et réspice super servos tuos. V. Dómine Deus virtútum, exáudi preces servórum tuórum. AIIeIúja, allelúja. V. (Ps. 20: 1) Dómine, in virtúte tua lætábitur rexet super salutáre tuum exsultábit veheménter. Allelúja.

Behold, O God our protector, and look on Thy servants. V. O Lord God of hosts, give ear to the prayers of Thy servants. Alleluia, alleluia. V. (Ps. 20: 1) In Thy strength, O Lord, the king shall enjoy and in Thy salvation he shall rejoice exceedingly. Alleluia.

GOSPEL:    Matthew 5: 20-24


Dominus vobiscum.
R. Et cum spiritu tuo.
Sequentia sancti Evangelii secundum Matthaeum.
R.Gloria tibi, Domine

In illo témpore: Dixit Jesus discípulis suis: "Nisi abundáverit justítia vestra plusquam scribárum et pharisæórum, non intrábitis in regnum cælórum. Audístis quia dictum est antíquis: Non occídes qui autem occíderet, reus erit judício. Ego autem dico vobis: quia omnis, qui iráscitur fratri suo, reus erit judício. Qui autem díxerit fratri suo: Raca, reus erit concílio. Qui autem dixérit: Fátue, reus erit gehénnæ ignis. Si ergo offers munus tuum ad altáre, et ibi recordátus fúeris quia frater tuus habet aliquid advérsum te relínque ibi munus tuum ante altáre, et vade prius reconciliári fratri tuo et tunc véniens ófferes munus tuum."
Laus tibi Christe.

The Lord be with you.
R. And with thy spirit.
The continuation of the holy Gospel according to Matthew.
R. Glory to Thee, O Lord

At that time Jesus said to His disciples: "Except your justice abound more than that of the Scribes and Pharisees, you shall not enter into the kingdom of Heaven. You have heard that it was said to them of old: Thou shalt not kill and whosoever shall kill, shall be in danger of the judgment. But I say to you, that whosoever is angry with his brother, shall be in danger of the judgment and whosoever shall say to his brother: Raca, shall be in danger of the council and whosoever shall say: Thou fool, shalt be in danger of hell fire. If therefore thou offer thy gift at the altar, and there thou remember that thy brother hath anything against thee, leave there thy offering before the altar, and go first to be reconciled to thy brother and then coming thou shalt offer thy gift."
Praise be to Christ

PREFACE   of the Most Holy Trinity


Dominus vobiscum.
R. Et cum spiritu tuo.
Sursum corda.
R.Habemus ad Dominum.
Gratias agamus Domino Deo nostro.
R. Dignum et justum est.

Vere dignum et justum est, aequum et salutare, nos tibi semper, et ubique gratias agere: Domine sancta, Pater omnipotens, aeterne Deus. Qui cum unigenito Filio: tuo et Spiritu Sancto, unus es Deus, unus es Dominus: non in uninus singularitate personae, sed in unius Trinitae substantiae. Quo denim de tua Gloria, revelante te, credimus, hoc de Filio tuo, hod de Spiritu Sancto, sine differentia discretionis sentimus. Ut in confessione verare, sempitiernaeque Deitatis, et in personis proprietas, et in essential unitas, et in majestate adoretur aequalitas. Quam laudant Angeli atque Archangeli, Cherubim, quoque ac Seraphim: qui non cessant clamare quotodie, una voce dicentes:
SANCTUS, SANCTUS, SANCTUS...

The Lord be with you.
R. And with thy spirit.
Lift up your hearts.
R.We have lifted them up to the Lord.
Let us give thanks to the Lord our God.
R. It is meet and just.

It is truly meet and just, right and for our salvation, that we should at all times and in all places, give thanks unto Thee, O holy Lord, Father almighty, ever-lasting God: Who, together with Thine only-begotten Son, and the Holy Ghost, are one God, one Lord: not in the oneness of a single Person, but in the Trinity of one substance. For what we believe by Thy revelation of Thy glory, the same do we believe of Thy Son, the same of the Holy Ghost, without difference or separation. So that in confessing the true and everlasting Godhead, distinction in persons, unity in essence, and equality in majesty may be adored. Which the Angels and Archangels, the Cherubim also and Seraphim do praise: who cease not daily to cry out with one voice saying:
HOLY, HOLY, HOLY...
