Double Feast of Saint Catherine of Siena , Virgin, Religious and Doctor of the Church


WHITE Vestments

St. Catherine of Siena was the twenty-third in a family of twenty-four children. She is best known for the work she did in persuading Pope Gregory XI in bringing the Papacy from Avignon back to Rome. She worked miracles for the sake of the poor and the afflicted. At the age of eighteen she received the habit of the Third Order of St. Dominic. For three years she never spoke to any one but God and her confessor. During her prolonged fast her only food was Holy Communion. Our Savior appearing to her on one occasion offered her a crown of thorns and another of roses, bidding her choose; she eagerly took the crown of thorns and forcibly pressed it upon her head. She died in 1380.

EPISTLE:   2 Corinthians 10 17-18 ; 11. 1-2


Lectio Epistolae beati Pauli Apostoli ad Corinthios. Fratres : Qui gloriatur, in Domino glorietur. Non enim qui seipsum commendat, ille probates est ; sed quem Deus commendat. utinam sustineretis modicum quid insipientiae meae, sed et supportate me : aemulor enim vos Dei aemulatione. Despondi enim vos uni viro virginem castam exhibere Christo.
Deo Gratias.

Lesson from the Epistle of blessed Paul the Apostle to the Corinthians. Brethren, he that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord. For not he who commandeth himself is approved : but he whom God commandeth. Would to God you could bear with some little of my folly, but do bear with me : for I am jealous of you with the jealousy of God. For I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ.
Thanks be to God.

ALLELUIA


Alleluja, alleluja. v. (Ps. 44. 15, 16). Adducentur regi virgins post eam : proximae ejus afferentur tibi. Alleluja. V. Afferentur in laetitia, et exsultatione : adducentur in templum regis. Alleluja.

Alleluia, alleluia. V. After her shall virgins be brought to the king : her neighbors shall be brought to thee. Alleluia. V. They shall be brought with gladness and rejoicing : they shall be brought into the temple of the king. Alleluia.

GOSPEL:    Matthew 25. 1-13


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

In illo tempore : Dixit Jesus discipulis suis parabolam hanc : 'Simile erit regnum caelorum decem virginibus : quae accipientes lampades suas exierunt obviam sponso et sponsae. Quinquae autem ex eis erant Fatuae, et quinque prudentes : sed quinque Fatuae, acceptis lampadibus, non sumpserunt oleum secum : prudentes vero acceperunt oleum in vasis suis cum lampadibus. Moram autem facientes sponso, dormitaverunt omnes, et dormierunt. Media autem nocte clamor factus est : Ecce sponsus venit, exite obviam ei. Tunc surrexerunt omnes virgins illae, et ornaverunt lampades suas. Fatuae autem sapientibus diserunt : Date nobis de oleo vestro : quia lampades nostrae exstinguuntur. Responderunt prudentes, dicentes : Ne forte, non sufficat nobis, et vobis, ite potius ad vendentes, et emite vobis. Dum autem irent emere, venit sponsus : et quae paratae erant, intraverunt cum eo ad nuptias, et clausa est janua. Novissime vero veniunt et reliquae virgins, dicentes : Domine, Domine, aperi nobis. At ille respondens, ait: Amen dico vobis, nescio vos. Vigilate itaquae, quia nescitis diem, neque horam.
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 spoke to His disciples this parable: ' The kingdom of Heaven shall be like to ten virgins, who taking their lamps went out to meet the bridegroom and the bride. And five of them were foolish, and five wise: but the five foolish having taken their lamps, did not take oil with them: but the wise took oil in their vessels with the lamps. And the bridegroom tarrying, they all slumbered and slept. And at midnight there was a cry made: Behold the bridegroom cometh, go ye forth to meet him. Then all those virgins arose and trimmed their lamps. And the foolish said to the wise: Give us of your oil, for our lamps are gone out. The wise answered, saying : Lest perhaps there be not enough for us and for you, go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves. Now whilst they went to buy, the bridegroom came : and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage, and the door was shut. But at last came also the other virgins, saying : Lord, Lord, open to us. But he answering, said : Amen I say to you, I know you not. Watch ye therefore, because you know not the day nor the hour.'
Praise be to Christ

PREFACE   Common Preface


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 simper, et ubique gratias agere: Domine sancte, Pater omnipotens, aeterne Deus: per Christum Dominum nostrum. Per quem majestatem Tuam laudant Angeli, adorant Dominationes, tremunt Potestates, Coeli, Coelorumque Virtutes, ac beata Seraphim socia exultatione concelebrant. Cum quibus et nostras voces, ut admitti, jubeas, supplici confessione 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, everlasting God: through Christ our Lord. Through Whom the Angels praise Thy Majesty, the Dominations worship it, the Powers stand in awe. The Heavens and the Heavenly hosts together with the blessed Seraphim in triumphant chorus unite to celebrate it. Together with them we entreat Thee, that Thou mayest bid our voices also to be admitted, while we say in lowly praise:
HOLY, HOLY, HOLY...
