Semi-Double Observance of the Eleventh Sunday After Pentecost
Missa "Deus in loco santo suo"
T he Church puts her hope in God from whom she receives her help (Gradual). Our Lord
has healed the wounds of mankind (Offertory) and has given us strength and courage (Introit). The theme is infinite charity and the mercy of God.
St. Paul repeats to the Corinthians the miraculous transformation which has taken place in him through the grace of God (Epistle).
The healing of the deaf and dumb, related by St. Mark, is the story of divine mercy towards each one of us (Gospel).
Deaf to the teachings of the Master, we had become dumb by sin and incapable of praising God. But repeating, according to His command, what Christ did, the Church in baptism has opened our ears and loosed our tongue, so that henceforth we may hear the divine word and freely proclaim our faith.
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
