Double of Saint Ignatius of Antioch, Bishop and Martyr

Missa "Mihi autem absit"

RED Vestments

       Today is the Feast of Saint Ignatius of Antioch, Bishop and Martyr. This Bishop of Antioch, like St. Polycarp, was a disciple of St. John the Apostle. St. Ignatius was the third successor of St. Peter at Antioch; a tradition says that he was held on the knee of Our Lord when the Savior spoke the words "Suffer the little children to come unto Me." During the persecution of Trajan he was condemned to death and sent in chains to Rome. While on the way he wrote letters to various churches which are precious documents for our Faith. He rejoiced when he heard the roaring of the lions set loose to devour him, exclaiming: "I am the wheat of Christ: may I be ground by the fangs of wild beasts and become bread agreeable to my Lord!" He died a noble martyr in Rome on October 17 around 107 A.D. He is commemorated every day in the prayer which precedes the Pater Noster, known as the "Great Intercession" - the Nobis quoque peccatoribus.

      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:   Romans 8: 35-39


Léctio Epístolæ beáti Pauli Apóstoli ad Romános. Fratres: Quis nos separábit a caritáte Christi? tribulátio? an angústia? an fames? an núditas? an perículum? an persecúitio? an gládius? (sicut scriptum est: Quia propter te mortificámur tota die: æstimáti sumus sicut oves occisionis). Sed in his ómnibus superámus propter eum, qui diléxit nos. Certus sum enim, quia neque mors, neque vita, neque áingeli, neque princípátus, neque virtútes, neque instántia, neque futúra, neque fortitúdo, neque altitúdo, neque profún­dum, neque creatúra álía póterit nos separáre a caritáte Dei, quæ est in Christo Jesu Dómino nostro.
Deo Gratias.

Lesson from the Epistle of blessed Paul the Apostle to the Romans. Brethren, who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation? or distress? or famine? or nakedness? or danger? or persecution or the sword? (As it is written, for Thy sake we are put to death all the day long: we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.) But in all these things we overcome because of Him that hath loved us. For I am sure that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor might, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Thanks be to God.

GRADUAL:   Ecclus 44: 16


Ecce sacérdos magnus, qui in diébus suis plácuit Deo. V. Non est invéntus símilis illi, qui conserváret legem Excélsi.

Behold, a great priest, who in his days pleased God. V. There was not any found like to him, who kept the law of the Most High.

GOSPEL:   John 12: 24-26


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

In illo témpore: Dixit Jesus discípulis suis: "Amen, amen dico vobis, nisi granum fruménti cadens in terram mórtuum fuérit, ipsum solum manet: si autem mortuum fuerit, multum fructum affert. Qui amat ánímam suam, perdet eam: et qui odit ánimam suam in hoc mundo, in vltam ætérnam custódit eam. Si quis mihi minístrat, Me sequátur: et ubi sum ego, illic et minister Meus erit. Si quls mihi ministráverit, honorificábit eum Pater Meus."

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 said to His disciples: "Amen, amen I say to you, unless the grain of wheat falling into the ground, die, itself remaineth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit. He that loveth his life, shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world, keepeth it unto life eternal. If any man minister to Me, let him follow Me; and where I am, there also shall My minister be. If any man minister to Me, him will My Father honor."
Praise be to Christ

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:

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...
