FERIA DAY



Missa "Quasi modo"

WHITE Vestments

Ferial Day

       The Church compares the Neophytes to newborn babes, and the milk she gives them to drink (Introit) is the faith in Christ which will enable them to overcome with Him the world. This faith has for its foundation the testimony of the Father, Who at the baptism of Christ (water) declared Him to be His Son; the testimony of the Son, Who on the Cross (blood) showed Himself the Son of God; and that of the Holy Ghost, Who by Christ's Resurrection attested the divinity of the Redeemer (Gospel).

       The Gospel further shows us how Christ, Who twice appeared in the Cenacle, dispelled the doubts of the Apostle - not present in the upper room on Easter night - Saint Thomas and praised those who, without having seen Him, yet believed in Him.

       Let us proclaim our faith in the risen Christ, and in the Divine Presence in the Holy Eucharist let us repeat with Thomas that cry of faith and humility, "My Lord and my God !"

      We want to thank the Friends of Fatima for these Proper resources. Sources: Saint Andrew Daily Missal and the Marian Missal , 1945

      EPISTLE:   1 John 5: 4-10
      Léctio Epístolæ beáti Joánnis Apóstoli. Caríssimi: Omne, quod natum est ex Deo, vincit mundum: et hæc est victória, quæ vincit mundum, fides nostra. Quis est, qui vincit mundum, nisi qui credit quóniam Jesus est Fílius Dei? Hic est qui venit per aquam et sánguinem, Jesus Christus: non in aqua solum, sed in aqua et sánguine. Et Spíritus est, qui testificátur, quóniam Christus est véritas. Quóniam tres sunt, qui testimónium dant in cælo: Pater, Verbum, et Spíritus Sanctus; et hi tres unum sunt. Et tres sunt qui testimónium dant in terra: Spíritus, et aqua, et sanguis: et hi tres unum sunt. Si testimónium hóminum accípimus, testimónium Dei majus est: quóniam hoc est testimónium Dei, quod majus est; quóniam testificátus est de Fílio suo. Qui credit in Fílium Dei, habet testimónium Dei in se.
      Deo Gratias.
      A reading from the Epistle of the blessed Apostle John. Dearly beloved: Whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world; and This is the victory which overcometh the world, our faith. Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God? This is He that came by water and blood, Jesus Christ; not by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit which testifieth that Christ is the truth. And there are three who give testimony in heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one. And there are three that give testimony on earth: the Spirit, the water, and the blood: and these three are one. If we receive the testimony of men, the testimony of God is greater: for this is the testimony of God, which is greater, because He hath testified of His Son. He that believeth in the Son of God hath the testimony of God in himself.
      Thanks be to God.

      Alleluia, alleluia. V. On the day of My resurrection, saith the Lord, I will go before you into Galilee. Alleluia. V. After eight days, the doors being shut, Jesus stood in the midst of His disciples, and said. Peace be with you. Alleluia.

      GOSPEL:   John 20: 19-31
      Dominus vobiscum.

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

      In illo témpore: Cum sero esset die illo, una sabbatórum, et fores essent clausæ, ubi erant discípuli congregáti propter metum Judæórum: venit Jesus, et stetit in médio, et dixit eis: "Pax vobis." Et cum hoc dixísset, osténdit eis manus, et latus. Gavísi sunt ergo discípuli, viso Dómino. Dixit ergo eis íterum: "Pax vobis. Sicut misit me Pater, et ego mitto vos." Hæc cum dixísset, insufflávit: et dixit eis: "Accípite Spíritum Sanctum: Quorum remiséritis peccáta, remittúntur eis: et quorum retinuéritis, reténta sunt." Thomas autem unus ex duódecim, qui dícitur Dídymus, non erat cum eis, quando venit Jesus. Dixérunt ergo ei álii discípuli: Vídimus Dóminum. Ille autem dixit eis: Nisi vídero in mánibus ejus fixúram clavórum, et mittam dígitum meum in locum clavórum, et mittam manum meam in latus ejus, non credam. Et post dies octo, íterum erant discípuli ejus intus; et Thomas cum eis. Venit Jesus, jánuis clausis, et stetit in médio, et dixit: "Pax vobis. Deínde dicit Thomæ: Infer dígitum tuum huc, et vide manus Meas, et affer manum tuam, et mitte in latus Meum: et noli esse incrédulus, sed fidélis." Respóndit Thomas, et dixit ei: Dóminus meus, et Deus meus. Dixit ei Jesus: "Quia vidísti me, Thoma, credidísti: beáti qui non vidérunt, et credidérunt." Multa quidem et ália signa fecit Jesus in conspéctu discipulórum suórum, quæ non sunt scripta in libro hoc. Hæc autem scripta sunt ut credátis, quia Jesus est Christus Fílius Dei: et ut credéntes, vitam habeátis in nómine ejus.
      Laus tibi Christe.

      The Lord be with you.
      R. And with thy spirit.
      The continuation of the holy Gospel according to John.
      R. Glory to Thee, O Lord

      At that time, when it was late that same day, the first of the week, and the doors were shut, where the disciples were gathered together for fear of the Jews, Jesus came, and stood in the midst and said to them: "Peace be to you." And when He had said this, He showed them His hands and His side. The disciples therefore were glad, when they saw the Lord. He said therefore to them again: "Peace be to you: as the Father hath sent Me, I also send you." When He had said this, He breathed on them, and He said to them, "Receive ye the Holy Ghost: whose sins you shall forgive, they are forgiven them, and whose sins you shall retain, they are retained." Now Thomas, one of the twelve, who is called Didymus, was not with them when Jesus came. The other disciples therefore said to him: We have seen the Lord. But he said to them: Except I shall see in His hands the print of the nails, and put my finger into the place of the nails, and put my hand into His side, I will not believe. And after eight days, again His disciples were within, and Thomas with them. Jesus cometh, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said: "Peace be to you." Then He saith to Thomas: "Put in thy finger hither, and see My hands, and bring hither thy hand, and put it into My side; and be not faithless, but believing." Thomas answered, and said to him: My Lord, and my God. Jesus saith to him: "Because thou hast seen Me, Thomas, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen and have believed." Many other signs also did Jesus in the sight of His disciples which are not written in this book. But these are written, that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ the Son of God; and that, believing, you may have life in His name.
      Praise be to Christ

      PREFACE   For EASTER
      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, æqum et salutáre, te quidem Dómine omni témpore, sed in hac potíssimum die, gloriósius prædicáre, cum Pascha nostrum immolátus est Christus. Ipse enim verus est Agnus qui ábstulit peccáta mundi. Qui mortem nostram moriéndo destrúxit, et vitam resurgéndo reparávit. Et ídeo cum Angelis et Archángelis, cum Thronis et Dóminatiónibus, cumque omni milítia cæléstis exércitus, hymnum glóriæ tuæ cánimus sine fine 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, at all times to praise Thee, O Lord, but more gloriously especially at this time above others when Christ our Pasch was sacrificed. For He is the true Lamb Who hath taken away the sins of the world: Who by dying hath destroyed our death: and by rising again hath restored us to life. And therefore with Angels and Archangels, with Thrones and Dominations, and with all the hosts of the heavenly army, we sing the hymn of Thy glory, evermore saying:
      HOLY, HOLY, HOLY...
