Missa "Justus es, Dómine"
Seventeenth Sunday After Pentecost
"Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself."


Semi-Double Observance of the Seventeenth Sunday After Pentecost

Missa "Justus es, Dómine"

GREEN Vestments


Commemoration of Saints Protus and Hyacinth, Martyrs

        The liturgy reminds us today of the great commandment of charity towards God and our neighbor. "The precept is twofold," declares St. Augustine, "but charity is one." We love God above all and our neighbor for His sake. The unity of our faith, like the unity of the Persons of the Most Holy Trinity is the message of the Epistle and the Gospel imposes on us the duty of being united in the bonds of charity.

        There is also a commemoration of Saint Protus and Saint Hyacinth, brothers who were cruelly scourged and then beheaded during the persecutions of the Third Century under the cruel Roman emperors Valerian and Gallian. They were commemorated by Pope Damasus with the following inscription:

      "The kingdom of heaven holds thee, O Protus, and thither dost thou follow him, O valiant Hyacinth, robed in the purple of thy blood. They were brothers and were unconquered in spirit. Protus first won his crown, but Hyacinth equally deserved the palm."

        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

    GOSPEL:    Matthew 22: 34-36


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

    In illo témpore: Accésserunt ad Jesum Pharisaei, et interrogávit eum unus ex eis legis doctor, tentans eum: 'Magíster, quod est mandátum magnum in lege?' Ait illi Jesus: "Díliges Dóminum tuum ex toto corde tuo, et in tota ánima tua, et in tota mente tua. Hoc est máximum, et primum mandátum. Secúndum autem simile est huic: Díliges próximum tuum sicut teípsum. In his duóbus mandátis univérsa lex pendet, et prophétae." Congregátis autem Pharisaeis, interrogávit eos Jesus, dicens: "Quid vobis vidétur de Christo? Cujus fílius est?" Dicunt ei: 'David.' Alt illis: "Qumóodo ergo David in spíritu vocat eum Dóminum, dicens: Dixit Dóminus Dómino meo: Sede a dextris meis, donec ponam inimícos tuos scabéllum pedum tuorum? si ergo David vocat eum Dóminum, quómodo fílius ejus est?" Et nemo póterat ei respondére verbum: neque ausus fuit quisquam ex iila die eum ámplius interrogáre.
    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 Thine 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

    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...
