Mass of the SUNDAY WITHIN THE OCTAVE OF THE NATIVITY


WHITE Vestments

Missa "Dum médium"

   When the Feasts of Christmas, St. Stephen, St. John, Apostle and Evangelist, or the Holy Innocents fall on Sunday, the following Mass is said on Dec. 30. If Dec. 30 be a Monday or a Saturday, the Mass of the day is within the octave of Christmas, which is also the same as the third Mass on Christmas, but Epistle and Gospel are from the Second Mass. The sacred liturgy, in revealing to us the supernatural Sonship of Our Lord Jesus Christ, which affects our souls more especially at this time of Christmas, makes the Divinity under the aspect of Fatherhood resplendent in our eyes.

    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: Galatians 4: 1-7


Léctio Epístolæ beáti Pauli Apóstoli ad Gálatas. Fratres, quanto témpore heres párvulus est, nihil differt a servo, cum sit dóminus ómnium: sed sub tutóribus et actóribus est usque ad præfinítum tempus a patre: ita et nos, cum essémus párvuli, sub eleméntis mundi erámus serviéntes. At ubi venit plenitúdo tempóris, misit Deus Fílium suum factum ex mulíere, factum sub lege, ut eos, qui sub lege erant, redímeret, ut adoptiónem filiórum reciperémus. Quóniam autem estis fílii, misit Deus Spíritum Fílii sui in corda vestra clamántem: Abba, Pater. Itaque jam non est servus, sed fílius. Quod si filius: et heres per Deum. Deo Gratias.

Lesson from the Epistle of Blessed Paul the Apostle to the Galatians. Brethren, As long as the heir is a child, he differeth nothing from a servant, though he be Lord of all: but is under tutors and governors until the time appointed by the father: so we also, when we were children, were serving under the elements of the world. But when the fullness of the time was come, God sent His Son, made of a woman, made under the law, that He might redeem them who were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons, And because you are sons, God hath sent the Spirit of His Son into your hearts, crying: Abba, Father. Therefore now he is not a servant, but a son and if a son, an heir also through God. Thanks be to God.

GRADUAL: Psalm 44: 3, 2


Speciósus forma præ fíliis hominum: diffúsa est grátia in lábiis tuis. V. Eructávit cor meum verbum bonum; dico ego ópera mea Regi: lingua mea calámus scribæ velóciter scribentis. Allelúja, allelúja. V. (Ps. 92: 1) Dóminus regnávit, decórem induit: ìnduit Dóminus fortitúdinem, et præcinxit se virtúte. Allelúja.

Thou art beautiful above the sons of men: grace is poured abroad in Thy lips. V. My heart hath uttered a good word, I speak my words to the king: my tongue is the pen of a scrivener, that writeth swiftly. Alleluia, alleluia. V. (Ps. 92: 1) The Lord hath reigned, He is clothed with beauty: the Lord is clothed with strength, and hath girded Himself with might. Alleluia.

GOSPEL:   Luke 2: 33-40


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

In illo témpore: Erat Joseph, et Maria mater Jesu, mírántes super his quæ dicebántur de illo. Et dixit ad Maríam matrem ejus: Ecce pósitus est hic in ruínam et in resurrectiónem multórum in Israël: et in signum cui contradicétur: et tuam ipsíus ánimam pertransíbit gládius ut reveléntur ex multis córdibus cogitatiónes. Et erat Anna prophetíssa, fília Phánuel, de tribu Aser. Hæc procésserat in diébus multis, et víxerat cum viro suo annis septem a virginitáte sua. Et hæc vidua usque ad annos octogínta quátuor: quæ non discedébat de tempio, jejúniis et obsecratiónibus sérviens nocte ac die. Et hæc, ipsa hora supervéniens, confitebétur Dómino, et loquebétur de illo omnibus, qui exspectébant redemptiónem Israël. Et ut perfecérunt ómnia secúndum legem Dómini, revérsi sunt in Galilæam, in civitátem suam Nazareth. Puer autem crescébat, et confortabétur, plenus sapiéntia: et gratia Dei erat in illo.
Laus tibi Christe.

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

At that time Joseph and Mary, the mother of Jesus, were wondering at those things which were spoken concerning Him, And Simeon blessed them, and said to Mary His Mother: behold this child is set for the fall and for the resurrection of many in Israel: and for a sign which shall be contradicted: and thine own soul a sword shall pierce, that out of many hearts thoughts may be revealed. And there was one Anna a prophetess, the daughter of Phanuel, of the tribe of Aser. She was far advanced in years, and had lived with her husband seven years from her virginity. And she was a widow until fourscore and four years: who departed not from the temple, by fastings and prayers serving night and day. Now she, at the same hour, coming in, confessed to the Lord: and spoke of Him to all that looked for the redemption of Israel. And after they had performed all things according to the law of the Lord, they returned into Galilee, to the city of Nazareth. And the Child grew and waxed strong, full of wisdom: and the grace of God was in Him.
Praise be to Christ

And therefore with Angels and Archangels, 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...
