Feria Mass of the Twelfth Sunday After Pentecost
Missa "Deus in adjutórìum"
We have been initiated into spiritual life by the Sacrament of Baptism
and strengthened, perfected, by the Sacrament of Confirmation.
The Feast of Pentecost has celebrated the efficaciousness of Baptism and Confirmation: the graces and fruits given by the Holy Ghost.The Church recalls in the Liturgy today the duty of charity which derives therefrom. The law of Our Lord Jesus Christ is the perfect development of the Law of Moses as the Epistle points out.
Let us not follow a pharisaical interpretation of the law which reduces our religious
duties to a few outward practices. "The letter killeth, the spirit quickeneth."
The Gospel of St. Luke treats the parable of the Good Samaritan and the command from Our Lord to go and do likewise in loving our neighbor for love of God.
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
