Double of the Second Class Feast of Saints Philip and James, Apostles


Red Vestments

In the Church of the Twelve Apostles in Rome there were some relics of the apostles Philip and James the Just or Less. Because of the consecration of the Church of the holy Apostles on May 1, and the relics of St. James preserved in this Church, the feast of James the Less was joined with that of St. Philip and celebrated on this day. The stational mass is said here on all Fridays in ember week and on Easter Thursday.

   The apostle St. Philip was one of the first chosen disciples of Christ. He preached the Gospel in Eastern Europe, and in Phrygia, and in the end suffered death by crucifixion.

   St. James governed the Church of Jerusalem for nearly thirty years, until about A.D. 62, when he was stoned to death by the Jews.

EPISTLE:   Ephesians 4: 7-13


Léctio Epístolæ beáti Pauli Apóstoli ad Ephésios. Fratres: Unicuíque nostrum data est grátia secúndum mensúram donatiónis Christi. Propter quod dicit: Ascéndens in altum captívam duxit captivitátem: dedit dona homínibus. Quod autem ascéndit, quid est, nisi quia et descéndit primum in inferióres partes terræ? Qui descéndit, ipse est et qui ascéndit super omnes coelos, ut impléret ómnia. Et ipse dedit quosdam quidem, Apóstolos, quosdam autem Prophétas, álios vero Evangelístas, alios autem pastóres, et doctóres, ad consummatiónem sanctórum in opus ministérii, in ædificatiónem córporis Christi: donec occurrámus omnes in unitátem fídei, et agnitiónis Fílii Dei, in virum perféctum, in mensúram ætátis plenitúdinis Christi.
Deo Gratias.

Lesson from the Epistle of blessed Paul the Apostle to the Ephesians. Brethren, to every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the giving of Christ. Wherefore he saith, Ascending on high, he led captivity captive; he gave gifts to men. Now, that he ascended, what is it, but because he also descended first into the lower parts of the earth? He that descended is the same also that ascended above all the heavens, that he might fill all things. And he gave some apostles, and some prophets, and other some evangelists, and other some pastors and doctors, for the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ; until we all meet into the unity of faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the age of the fulness of Christ.
Thanks be to God.

Alleluja, alleluja. v. (Ps. 88. 6). Confitebuntur Caeli mirabilia Tua, Domine : etenim veritatem Tuam in Ecclesia sanctorum. Alleluja. V. Tanto tempore vobiscum sum, et non cognovistis me? Philippe, qui vide Me, videt et Patrem Meum. Alleluja.

Alleluia, alleluia. V. The Heavens shall confess Thy wonders, O Lord; and Thy truth in the church of the saints. Alleluia. V. So long a time have I been with you, and have you not known Me? Philip, he that seeth me, seeth My Father also. Alleluia.

GOSPEL:    John 14: 1-13


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

In illo témpore: Dixit Jesus discípulis suis: "Non turbétur cor vestrum. Créditis in Deum, et in me crédite. In domo Patris mei mansiónes multæ sunt. Si quo minus dixíssem vobis: Quia vado paráre vobis locum. Et si abíero, et præparávero vobis locum: íterum vénio, et accípiam vos ad meípsum, ut ubi sum ego, et vos sitis. Et quo ego vado scitis, et viam scitis." Dicit ei Thomas: "Dómine, nescímus quo vadis: et quómodo póssumus viam scire?" Dicit ei Jesus: "Ego sum via, véritas, et vita; nemo venit ad Patrem, nisi per me. Si cognovissétis me, et Patrem meum útique cognovissétis: et ámodo cognoscétis eum, et vidístis eum." Dicit ei Philippus: "Dómine, osténde nobis Patrem, et súfficit nobis." Dicit ei Jesus:"Tanto témpore vobíscum sum, et non cognovístis me? Philippe, qui videt me, videt et Patrem. Quómodo tu dicis: 'Osténde nobis Patrem?' Non créditis, quia ego in Patre, et Pater in Me est? Verba, quæ ego loquor vobis, a meípso non loquor. Pater autem in Me manens, ipse facit ópera. Non créditis, quia ego in Patre, et Pater in Me est? Alióquin propter ópera ipsa crédite. Amen, amen dico vobis, qui credit in Me, ópera qua. ego fácio, et ipse fáciet, et majóra horum fáciet: quia ego ad Patrem vado. Et quodcúmque petiéritis Patrem in nómine Meo, hoc fáciam.
Laus tibi Christe.

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

At that time Jesus said to His disciples: "Let not your heart be troubled: you believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father's house there are many mansions. If not, I would have told you, that I go to prepare a place for you. And if I shall go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to Myself, that where I am you also may be. And whither I go you know, and the way you know." Thomas saith to Him, "Lord, we know not whither Thou goest; and how can we know the way?" Jesus saith to him, I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No man cometh to the Father, but by Me. If you had known Me, you would without doubt have known My Father also: and from henceforth you shall know Him; and you have seen Him." Philip saith to Him, Lord, "show us the Father, and it is enough for us." Jesus saith to him, "So long a time have I been with you, and have you not known Me? Philip, he that seeth Me, seeth the Father also. How sayest thou, show us the Father? Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father in Me? The words that I speak to you, I speak not of Myself. But the Father Who abideth in Me, He doeth the works. Believe you not that I am in the Father, and the Father in Me? Otherwise, believe for the very works' sake. Amen, amen, I say to you, he that believeth in Me, the works that I do, he also shall do; and greater than these shall he do. Because I go to the Father: and whatsoever you shall ask the Father in My name, that will I do."
Praise be to Christ

PREFACE   of the Apostles


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. Te Domine supplicitur exorare, ut gregem tuum pastor aeterne, non deseras: sed per beatos Apostolos tuos continua protectione custodias. Ut iisdem rectoribus gubernetur, quos operis tui vicarious eidem contulisti praesse pastores. Et ideo cum Angelis et Archangelis, cum Thronis et Dominationibus, cumque omni militia caelestis exercitus, hymnum gloriae tuae canimus, sine fine 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, to entreat Thee humbly, O Lord, that Thou woulds not desert Thy flock. O everlasting Shepherd; but through Thy blessed Apostles, wouldst keep it under Thy constant protection; that it may be governed by those same rulers, whom as vicars of Thy work, Thou didst set over it to be its pastors. And therefore with Angels and Archangesl, with Thrones and Dominations, and with all the hosts of the heavenly army, we sing the hymn of The glory, evermore saying:
HOLY, HOLY, HOLY...
