Missa "Dum clamarem"

   Today's station - The Basilica of St. Nicholas - stands in the ancient forum olitorium near the theatre of Marcellus; during the Middle Ages it was raised to the status of a deaconry.

   The station at St. George's was instituted by St. Gregory II (715-31), when the cultus of the great Cappadocian martyr had become exceedingly popular in Rome. A titular church already existed here in 482, as an inscription of that date mentions an Augustus lector de Belabru, but the dedication to St. George was certainly of later date.

   Today's Gospel, telling of the centurion of Capharnaum, alludes to the military character ascribed by tradition to St. George, which caused him to be specially invoked during the Middle Ages as the armed champion of the Christian family.

   The Mass is a call to penance. The Lesson from Isaias recalls the warning given to Ezechias of his approaching death; the thought of death is a powerful inducement to us to change our mode of life. If we would only realize that the moment of our passing from this world to eternity may come unawares, we would implore earnestly a space of time in which to do penance, and resolve to lead a good life.

    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

EPISTLE:   Joel 2: 12-19
Léctio Isaiæ Prophétæ. In diebus illis: Ægrotávit Ezechías usque ad mortem: et introívit ad eum Isaías fílius Amos prophéta, et dixit ei: Hæc dicit Dóminus: Dispóne dómui tuæ, quia moriéris tu, et non vives. Et convértit Ezechías fáciem suam ad paríetem, et orávit ad Dóminum, et dixit: Obsecro, Dómine, meménto quæso, quómodo ambuláverim coram te in veritáte, et in corde perfécto, et quod bonum est in óculis tuis fécerim. Et flevit Ezéchias fletu magno. Et factum est verbum Dómini ad Isaíam, dicens: Vade, et dic Ezechíæ: Hæc dicit Dóminus Deus David patris tui: Audívi oratiónem tuam, et vidi lácrimas tuas: ecce ego adjíciam super dies tuos quíndecim annos: et de manu regis Assyriórum éruam te, et civitátem istam, et prótegam eam, ait Dómin­us omnípotens.
Deo Gratias.
Lesson from Isaias the Prophet. In those days, Ezechias, was sick even to death; and Isaias the son of Amos the prophet came unto him, and said to Him, Thus saith the Lord, Take order with thy house, for thou shalt die, and not live. And Ezechias turned his face toward the wall, and prayed to the Lord, and said, I beseech Thee, O Lord, remember how I have walked before Thee in truth, and with a perfect heart, and have done that which is good in thy sight. And Ezechias wept with great weeping. And the word of the Lord came to Isaias, saying, Go, and say to Ezechias, Thus saith the Lord, the God of David thy father: I have heard thy prayer and I have seen thy tears: behold I will add to thy days fifteen years; and I will deliver thee and this city out of the hand of the king of the Assyrians, and I will protect it; said the Lord almighty.
Thanks be to God.

GRADUAL    Psalm 54: 23, 17-19
Jacta cogitátum tuum in Dómino, et ipse te enútriet. V. Dum clamárem ad Dóminum, exaudívit vocem meam ab his, qui appropín­quant mihi.
Cast thy care upon the Lord, and He shall sustain thee. V. When I cried to the Lord, He heard my voice from them that draw near to me.

GOSPEL:    Matthew 8: 5-13
Dominus vobiscum.
R. Et cum spiritu tuo.
Sequentia sancti Evangelii secundum Matthaeum.
R.Gloria tibi, Domine

In illo tempore : Cum introísset Jesus Caphárnaum, accéssit ad eum centúrio, rogans eum, et dicens: Dómine, puer meus jacet in domo paralyticus et male torquétur. Et ait illi Jesus: "Ego véniam, et curábo eum." Et respóndens centúrio, ait: Dómine, non sum dignus, ut intres sub tectum meum: sed tantum dic verbo, et sanábitur puer meus. Nam et ego homo sum sua potestáte constitútus, habens sub me mílites, et dico huic: Vade, et vadit; et álii: Veni, et venit; et servo meo: Fac hoc, et facit. Audiens autem Jesus mirátus est, et sequéntibus se dixit: "Amen dico vobis, non invéni tantam fidem in Israël. Dico autem vobis, quod multi ab Oriénte, et Occidénte vénient, et recúmbent cum Abraham, et Isaac, et Jacob in regno cælórum: fílii autem regni ejiciéntur in ténebras exterióres: ibi erit fetus, et stridor déntium." Et dixit Jesus centurióni: "Vade, et sicut credidísti, fiat tibi." Et sanátus est puer in illa hora.
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, when Jesus had entered into Capharnaum, there came to Him a centurion, beseeching Him, and saying, Lord, my servant lieth at home sick of the palsy, and is grievously tormented. And Jesus said to him: "I will come and heal him." And the centurion making answer said: Lord, I am not worthy that Thou shouldst enter under my roof: but only say the word, and my servant shall be healed. For I also am a man subject to authority, having under me soldiers; and I say to this man, Go, and he goeth, and to another, Come, and he cometh, and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth it. And Jesus hearing this marvelled; and said to them that followed Him: "Amen I say to you, I have not found so great faith in Israel. And I say to you that many shall come from the east and from the west, and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob in the kingdom of heaven: but the children of the kingdom shall be cast out into exterior darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth." And Jesus said to the centurion: "Go, and as thou hast believed, so be it done to thee." And the servant was healed at the same hour.
Praise be to Christ

PREFACE   FOR LENT
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 sancte, Pater Omnipotens, aeterne Deus. Qui corporali jejunio vitia comprimis, mentem elevas, virtutem largiris et praemia : per Christum Dominum nostrum. Per quem majestatem tuam laudant Angeli, adorant Dominationes, tremunt Potestates. Coeli, caelorumque Virtutes, ac beata Seraphim, socia exsultatione concelebrant. Cum quibus et nostras voces, ut admitti jubeas deprecamur, supplici confessione 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.

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, everlasting God: Who by this bodily fast, dost curb our vices, dost lift up our minds and bestow on us strength and rewards; through Christ our Lord. Through whom the Angels praise Thy Majesty, the Dominations worship it, the Powers stand in awe. The Heavens and the heavenly hosts together with the blessed Seraphim in triumphant chorus unite to celebrate it. Together with these we entreat Thee that Thou mayest bid our voices also to be admitted while we say with lowly praise:
HOLY, HOLY, HOLY...
