WHITE Vestments

Missa "Os justi"

       Saint John of God, known for his work in the Spiritual and Corporal Works of Mercy, lived in the 16th Century in Portugal and Spain. One day while traveling he came across a small child with no shoes. Because his own shoes would not fit the child he lifted Him upon his shoulders and carried him, offering solace and help. While stopping to drink, the child revealed Himself as the Infant Christ Child and presented John a pomagranate, the fruit of the region which is sweet and stood for charity. It was crowned with a cross, representing sacrifice, which Jesus said would be the "Cross of Granada" where John, at the age of 42, would establish the Brother Hospitallers of St. John of God in the year 1537.

       John was given the name "John of God" by his own bishop who saw in John, a true saint. John died saving others. After many close calls rescuing people from the streets and burning hospitals, he dove into the River Xenil to save a drowning lad and succumbed to pneumonia from the cold, icy waters at the age of 55.

EPISTLE:   Ecclesiasticus 31: 8-11


Lectio libri Sapientiae, Dilectus memoria in benedictione est. SSimilem illum fecit in Gloria sanctorum, et magnificavit eum in timore inmicorum, et in verbis suis monstra placivit. Glorificavit illum in conspectus regum, et jussit illi oram populo suo, et ostendit illi gloriam suam. In fide, et lenitate ipsius, sanctum fecit illum, et elegit eum ex omni carne. Audivit enim eum, et vocem ipsius, sanctum fecit illum, et elegit eum, et vocem ipsius, et induxit illum in nubem. Et dedit illi coram praecepta, et lagem vitae et disciplinae.
Deo Gratias.

Lesson from the Book of Wisdom. 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 commandments before His face, and a law of life and instruction.
Thanks be to God.

GRADUAL:   Psalm 61: 13,14


Domine, praevenisti eum in benedictionibus dulcendinis: posuisti in capite ejus coronam da lapide pretioso V. Et constituisti eum super opera manuum tuarum Domine.

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

GOSPEL:   Matthew 22: 34-36


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

In illo tempore: Dixit Jesus discipulis suis: Accesserunt ad Jesum pharisaei : et interrogavit eum unus ex eis legis doctor, tentans eum : 'Magister, quod est mandatum magnum inlege?' Ait illi Jesus : 'Diliges Dominum Deum tuum ex toto corde tuo et in tota anima tua et in tota mente tua. Hoc est maximum, et primum mandatum. Secundum autem simile est huic. Diliges proximum tuum, sicut teipsum. In his pendet, et prophetae.' Congregatis autem Pharisaeis, interrogavit eos Jesus, dicens : 'Quid vobis videtur de Christo? Cujus filius est?' Dicunt ei : 'David.' Ait illis : 'Quomodo ergo David in spiritu vocat eum Dominum, dicens: Dixit Dominus Domino meo : sede a dextris meis, donec ponam inimicos tuos scabellum pedum tuorum? Si ergo David vocat eum Dominum, quomodo filius ejus est?' Et nemo poterat ei respondere verbum : neque ausus fuit quisquam ex illa die eum amplius interrogare.
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 the Pharisees came to Jesus, and one of them, a doctor of the law, asked Him, tempting Him : 'Master, which is the great commandment of the law?' Jesus said to him: 'Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with thy whole heart, and with thy whole soul, and with thy whole mind. This is the greatest and the first commandment. And the second is like to this : Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. On these two commandments dependeth the whole law and the prophets.' And the Pharisees being gathered together, Jesus asked them, saying : 'What think you of Christ ; whose Son is He?' They say to Him : 'David's.' He saith to them: 'How then doth David, in spirit, call Him Lord; saying: The Lord said to my Lord : Sit on My right hand until I make Thy enemies Thy footstool? If David then call Him Lord, how is He his Son?' And no man was able to answer Him a word; neither durst any man, from that day forth, ask Him any more questions.
Praise be to Christ
