Double Major of the Feast of Saint Peter's Chair at Rome

Missa "Státuit ei Dóminus"

White Vestments

       Eleven years after the ascension of Our Blessed Lord, Saint Peter who had been appointed the head of the Church on earth by Christ Himself, transferred the seat of the Papacy from Antioch to Rome, where he preached the Faith and established his episcopal chair, and there the Bishops of Rome have been ever since accounted his successors. The feast of the Chair of St. Peter is that of the foundation of the See of Rome. From the Third Century it was symbolized by a chair carved in wood or tufa, a relic now kept high in the apse of the Vatican Basilica.

       Today is also the feast of Saint Prisca, Virgin, Martyr. A commemoration is likewise made of St. Prisca, a noble Roman virgin who suffered martyrdom about the year 275 at the age of 13 under the Emperor Claudius. Her relics are preserved in the ancient church in Rome which bears her name. St. Prisca was condemned to be torn to shreads by lions in the Colisseum. Instead, the wild beasts licked her feet. She won the martyr's crown when the Emperor had her beheaded.

      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 Bio: Catholic Encyclopedia 1913 edition. Saint Andrew Daily Missal and the Marian Missal , 1945

EPISTLE:   1 Peter 1: 1-7


Epístolæ beáti Petri Apóstoli. Petrus Apóstolus Jesu Christi, eléctis ádvenis dispersionis Ponti, Galatic, Cappadociæ, Asia; et Bithynia:, secúndum præsciéntiam Dei Patris, in sanctificationem Spiritus, in obediéntiam, et aspersionem sánguinis Jesu Christi: grátia vobis, et pax multiplicétur. Benedictus Deus, et Pater Domini nostri Jesu Christi, qui secúndum misericordiam suam magnam regeneravit nos in spem vivam, per resurrectionem Jesu Christi ex mortuis, in hereditatem incorruptibilem, et incontaminatam, et immarcescíbilem, conservátam in coelis in vobis, qui in virtúte Dei custodímini per fidem in salútem, parátam revelari in témpore novíssìmo. In quo exsultébitis módicum nunc si opórtet contristari in varlis tentatiónibus: ut probátio vestræ fídei multo pretiósior auro (quod per ignem probátur) inveniátur in laudem, et glóriam, et honórem, in revelatióne Jesu Christi Dómini nostri.
Deo Gratias.

Lesson from the Epistle of blessed Peter the Apostle. Peter, an apostle of Jesus Christ, to the strangers dispersed through Pontus, Galatía, Cappadocia, Asia, and Bithynia, elect according to the fore-knowledge of God the Father, unto the sanctification of the Spirit, unto obedience, and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ; grace unto you and peace be multiplied. Blessed be the God and Father of Our Lord Jesus Christ, Who according to His great mercy hath regenerated us unto a lively hope, by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, unto an inheritance incorruptible and undefiled, and that can not fade, reserved in heaven for you, who by the power of God are kept by faith unto salvation, ready to be revealed in the last time Wherein you shall greatly rejoice, if now you must be for a little time made sorrowful in divers temptations: that the trial of your faith, much more precious than gold (which is tried by the fire), may be found unto praise, and glory, and honor, at the appearing of Jesus Christ our Lord.
Thanks be to God.

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

In illo témpore: Venit Jesus in partes Cæsaréæ Philíppi, et interrogébat discípulos suos, dícens: "Quem dicunt hómines esse Fílium hóminis?" At illi dixérunt: Alii Joánnem Baptístam, autem Elíam, alii vero Jeremíam, aut unum ex prophétis. Dicit illis Jesus: Vos autem quem me esse dicitìs? Respóndens Simon Petrus, dixit:Tu es Christus Filius Dei vivi. Respóndens autem Jesus, dixit ei: "Beátus est Simon BarJona: quia caro et sanguis non revelávit tibi, sed Pater Meus, qui in coelis est. Et ego dici tibi, quia to es Petrus, et super hanc petram ædificábo Ecclésíam Meam, et portæ inferi non prævalébunt advérsus eam. Et tibi dabo claves regni Coelórum. Et quodcúmque ligáveris super terram, erit ligátum et in Coelis: et quodcúmque sólveris super terram, erit solutum et in Coelis."
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 came into the quarters of Cæsarea Philippi, and He asked His disciples, Saying, "Whom do men say that the Son of man is?" But they said, Some, John the Baptist, and other some, Elias, and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets. Jesus saith to them, "But whom do you say that I am?" Simon Peter answered, Thou art Christ, the Son of the living God. And Jesus answering, said to him, "Blessed art thou, Simon BarJona, because flesh and blood hath not revealed it to thee, but My Father Who is in Heaven: and I say to thee, that thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build My Church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it; and to thee I will give the keys of the kingdom of Heaven; and whatsoever thou shalt bind upon earth, it shall be bound also in Heaven; and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth, it shall be loosed also in Heaven."
Praise be to Christ

And therefore with Angels and Archangels, with Thrones and Dóminations and with all the hosts of the heavenly army, we sing the hymn of Thy glory, evermore saying:
HOLY, HOLY, HOLY...
