Semi-Double Observance of the Tenth Sunday After Pentecost

Missa "Cum clamárem"

GREEN Vestments


        The Church gives us today a true notion of Christian humility. The liturgy reminds us that the humble soul is blessed to recognize its nothingness only on this condition Our sanctification is an impossible work if we undertake it alone, since our acts are only supernatural if they proceed from the Holy Ghost.

        Left to ourselves, we are powerless and given to sin, it is to God that we owe its avoidance or its pardon, and that we are even able to pronounce the name of Jesus affirming His divinity (Epistle).

        Wherefore, in the Gospel of the Pharisee and the Publican, the Master stigmatizes the pride which makes us put our trust in ourselves and always shows itself in our contempt for others. This pride is the enemy of God, for it attributes to itself the gifts which the Holy Ghost confers on each according to His pleasure (Epistle), and it therefore hinders His divine power from manifesting itself in us (Collect), since it makes us imagine that we need no help. The humble soul, on the contrary, is pleased to recognize its nothingness, knowing that it is only on this condition that the virtue of Christ will dwell in it.

       There is a commemoration today of the holy confessor Saint Jerome Emiliani. He was born in Venice, Italy in 1481, the son of Angelo Emiliani (popularly called Miani) and of Eleonore Mauroceni, who both raised him in the holy Faith.

        Jerome joined the army, and in 1508 defended Castelnuovo against the League of Cambray. Taken prisoner and miraculously liberated, he made a pilgrimage to the shrine of Our Lady of Treviso, in fulfillment of a vow. He was then appointed podestà of Castelnuovo, but after a short time returned to Venice to supervise the education of his nephews. All his spare time was devoted to the study of theology and to works of charity.

        After his ordination to the priesthood in 1518, the hospitals and the hovels of the poor were his favorite resorts. In 1528, the year of plague and famine, he seemed to be everywhere, and showed his zeal especially for the orphans, whose number had so greatly increased. He rented a house for them near the church of St. Rose and, with the assistance of some pious laymen, ministered to their wants. To his charge was also committed the hospital for incurables, founded by St. Cajetan.

        In 1531 he went to Verona and induced the citizens to build a hospital; at Brescia he erected an orphanage, at Bergamo one for boys and another for girls. Here also he founded the first home for fallen women who wished to do penance. Two priests, Alessandro Besuzio and Agostino Bariso, joined him in his labors of charity, and in 1532 Jerome founded a religious society, placing the motherhouse at Somascha, a secluded hamlet between Milan and Bergamo. In the rule, Jerome put down as the principal work of the community the care of orphans, poor, and sick, and demanded that dwellings, food and clothing bear the mark of religious poverty.

        Jerome fell a martyr to his zeal; contracting a disease at Bergamo, he died at Somascha on February 8, 1537. He was beatified by Pope Benedict XIV in 1747, and canonized by Pope Clement XIII in 1767. The Office and Mass in his honor were approved eight years later. His biography was first written by Scipio Albani in 1600; another by Andreas Stella five years later. The best was written by Aug. Tortora out of Milan in 1620 with his "Acta SS.", Feb., II, 217 sq.

        After the death of Jerome his community was about to disband, but was kept together by Gambarana, who had been chosen superior. In 1540 he obtained the approval of Pope Paul III. In 1547 the members vainly sought affiliation with the Society of Jesus; then in 1547-1555 they were united with the Theatines. In 1563 Pope Pius IV approved the institution, and Pope St. Pius V raised it to the dignity of a religious order, according to the Rule of St. Augustine, with solemn vows, the privileges of the mendicants, and exemption.

        In 1569 the first six members made their profession, and Gambarana was made first superior general. Great favor was shown to the order by St. Charles Borromeo, and he gave it the church of St. Mayeul at Pavia, from which church the order takes its official name "Clerici regulares S. Majoli Papiae congregationis Somaschae". Later the education of youth was put into the program of the order, and the colleges at Rome and Pavia became renowned. It spread into Austria and Switzerland, and before the great Revolution it had 119 houses in the four provinces of Rome, Lombardy, Venice, and France. (Source: Catholic Encyclopedia, 1910)

EPISTLE:   I Corinthians 12. 2-11
Léctio Epístolæ beáti Pauli Apóstoli ad Corinthios. Fratres: Scitis quóniam cum Gentes essétis, ad simulácra muta prout ducebámini eúntes. Ideo notum vobis fácio, quod nemo, in Spíritu Dei loquens, licit anáthema Jesu, Et nemo potest dícere, Dóminus Jesus, nisi in Spíritu sancto. Divisiones vero gratiárum sunt, idem autem Spíritus. Et divisiónes ministratiónum sunt, idem autem Dóminus. Et divisiónes operatiónum sunt, idem vero Deus, qui operátur ómnia in ómnibus, Unicuíque autem datur manifestátio Spíritus ad utilitátem. Alii quidem per Spíritum datur sermo sapiéntiæ: álii autem sermo sciéntiæ secúndum eumdem Spíritum: álteri fides in eodem Spíritu: álii grátia sanitátum in uno Spíritu: álii operátio virtútum, alii prophetia, álii discrétio spíritum, álii génera linguárum, álii íterpretátio sermónum. Hæc autem ómnia operátor unus atque idem Spíritus, dívidens síngulis prout volt.
Deo Gratias.
Lesson from the Epistle of Blessed Paul the Apostle to the Corinthians. Brethren, You know that, when you were heathens, you went to dumb idols, according as you were led, Wherefore I give you to understand, that no man, speaking by the Spirit of God, saith Anathema to Jesus and no man can say, The Lord Jesus, but by the Holy Ghost. Now there are diversities of graces, but the same Spirit and there are diversities of ministries, but the same Lord and there are diversities of operations, but the same God, who worketh in all. And the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man unto profit. To one indeed, by the Spirit, is given the word of wisdom, and to another, the word of knowledge, according to the same Spirit; to another the grace of healing in one Spirit; to another the working of miracles; to another, prophecy; to another the discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another, interpretation of speeches. But all these things one and the same Spirit worketh, dividing to every one according as He will.
Thanks be to God.

Keep me, O Lord, as the apple of Thine eye: protect me under the shadow of Thy wings. V. Let my judgment come forth from Thy countenance: let Thine eyes behold the thing that is equitable. Alleluia, alleluia. V. (Ps. 64: 2) A hymn, O God, becometh Thee in Sion: and a vow shall be paid to Thee in Jerusalem. Alleluia.

Sequentia sancti Evangelii secundum Lucam.
R.Gloria tibi, Domine

In illo témpore: Dixit Jesus ad quosdam, qui in se confidébant tamquam justi, et aspernabántur céteros, parábolam istam: "Duo hómines ascénderunt in templum ut orárent: Unus pharisæsus, et alter publicánus. Pharisæus stans, haec apud se orabat; Deus grátias ago tibi, quia non sum sicut, céteri hóminum: captóres, injústi, adúlteri, velut étiam hic publicánus. Jejúno bis in sábbato: décimas do ómnium, quæ possídeo. Et publicánus a longe stans, nolébat nec óculus ad cælum leváre: sed percutiébat pectus suum, dicens: Deus, propítius esto mihi peccatóri, Dico vobís: domum suam ab illo: Descéndit hic justificátus in quid omnis qui se exáltat, humilibátur: et qui se humíliat, exaltábitur."
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 this parable to some who trusted in themselves as just, and despised others. "Two men went up into the temple to pray: the one was a pharisee, and the other a publican, The pharisee standing, prayed thus with himself. O God, I give Thee thanks that I am not as the rest of men, extortioners, unjust, adulterers as also is this publican. I fast twice in the week I give tithes of all that I possess. And the publican standing afar off would not so much as lift up his eyes towards heaven, but struck his breast saying: O God, be merciful to me a sinner. I say to you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other: because every one that exalteth himself shall be humbled: and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted."
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...
