Missa "Extúli"

        Regarded as the Pope of the Blessed Sacrament, Giuseppe Sarto was born in 1835 at Riese, Treviso, Venice, Austria (now Italy). The glorious Saint Pius X died in 1914, at the beginning of the First World War after having been Pope for eleven years. He was truly a chosen soul. There has been no more saintly, courageous or beloved saint of modern times than Pope Saint Pius X. He was the vigorous opponent of all the Liberalism that has been trying in modern times to make its way into the Catholic Church, to water down its dogmas and to tie up Catholics with false brotherhoods that have no relationship to Jesus or to the Divine Maternity of Mary. Saínt Pius X was the great Pope of daily Communion for all, and of early Communion for children. No political influences could make him alter his assignment as Vicar of Chríst on earth and the sole ruler of the world in all things that directly pertain to God. He approached the papacy by every simple step a priest could take. He was the first pope ever to ascend through all the minor and major orders. He had an impoverished childhood as one of eight children of a village cobbler and felt a calling to the priesthood from his youth; studied at Padua, and was known as an exceptional student; was a curate at Tombolo; a parish priest at Salzano; a canon at Treviso, and a spiritual director of the seminary there; he was Bishop of Mantua; Patriarch of Venice; and Pope of Rome. The only credentials he offered for all he dìd were these: "I am a simple priest." The holy Pius ssued decrees on early (age 7 instead of 12 or 14 as previously) and frequent communion. He destroyed the last vestiges of Jansenism by advocating frequent and even daily communion; reformed the liturgy, promoted clear and simple homilies, and brought Gregorian chant back to services. He revised the Breviary, and the teaching of the Catechism. His greatest battles were in the fight against Modernism, which he denounced as "the summation of all heresies" in his masterful encyclical Pascendi Dominici Gregis. He reorganized the Roman curia, the administrative elements of the Church, and worked against the modern antagonism of the state against the Church. He initiated the codification of canon law, promoted Bible reading by all the faithful, and supported foreign missions. His will read: "I was born poor; I lived poor; I wish to die poor."

      EPISTLE: 1 Thessalonians 2: 2-8
      Léctio Epístolæ beáti Pauli Apóstoli ad Thessalónicenses. Fratres: Fidúciam habúimus in Deo nostro loqui ad vos evangélium Dei in multa sollicitúdine. Exhortátio enim nostra non de errore neque de immundítia neque in dolo; sed sicut probáti sumus a Deo ut crederétur nobis evangélium, ita lóquimur; non quasi homínibus placéntes, sed Deo qui probat corda nostra. Neque enim aliquándo fuimus in sermóne adulatiónis, sicut scitis, neque in occasióne avarítiæ, Deus testis est, nec quæréntes ab homínibus glóriam neque a vobis neque ab aliis. Cum possemus vobis oneri esse ut Christi apóstoli, sed facti sumus párvuli in medio vestrum, tamquam si nutrix fóveat fílios suos. Ita desiderántes vos cupide volebámus tradere vobis non solum evangélium Dei, sed etiam animas nostras, quoniam caríssimi nobis facti estis. Deo Gratias.
      Lesson from the Epistle of blessed Paul the Apostle to the Thessalonians. Brethren, we had confidence in our God to preach to you the gospel of God amid much anxiety. For our exhortation was not from error, nor from impure motives, nor from guile. But as approved by God to be entrusted with the gospel, so we speak not as pleasing men, but God, who proves our hearts. For at no time have we used words of flattery, as you know, nor any pretext for avarice, God is witness, nor have we sought glory from men, neither from you nor from others. Although as the apostles of Christ we could have claimed a position of honor among you, still while in your midst we were as children: as if a nurse were cherishing her own children, so we in our love for you would gladly have imparted to you not only the gospel of God, but also our own souls: because you had become most dear to us. Thanks be to God.

      I have proclaimed thy justice in the great assembly: lo, I did not restrain my lips; Lord, thou knowest. V. I have not hidden thy justice within my heart; I have declared thy faithfulness and thy help. Alleluia, alleluia. V. (Ps. 22: 5-6) Thou preparest a table for me, thou anointest my head with oil, my cup brims over. Alleluia

Dicit ei íterum: "Simon Joánnis, diligis me?" Ait illi: Étiam, Dómine, tu scis quia amo te. Dicit ei: "Pasce agnos Meos." Dicit ei tertio: "Simon Joánnis, amas Me?" Contristátus est Petrus, quia dixit ei tertio: Amas me? et dixit ei: Dómine, tu ómnia nosti; tu scis quia amo te. Dixit ei: "Pasce oves Meas."

      At that time, At that time Jesus said to Simon Peter: "Simon, Son of John, dost thou love Me more than these do?" He said to Him, yes, Lord, thou knowest that I love Thee. He said to him, "Feed My lambs." He said to him a second time, "Simon, son of John, dost thou love Me?" He said to him, yes, Lord, thou knowest that I love Thee. He said to him, "Feed My lambs." A third time He said to him, "Simon, son of John, dost thou love Me?" Peter was grieved because He said to him for the third time, Dost thou love Me? And he said to Him, Lord, Thou knowest all things, Thou knowest that I love Thee. He said to him, "Feed My sheep."
      Praise be to Christ

      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 Dómine supplicíter exoráre, ut gregem tuum pastor ætérne, non déseras: sed per beátos Apóstolos tuos contínua protectióne custódias. Ut iísdem rectóribus gubernétur, quos óperis tui vicários eidem contulísti præésse pastóres.

      It is truly meet and just, right and for our salvation, to entreat Thee humbly, O Lord, that Thou wouldst not desert Thy flock, O everlasting Shepherd; but, through Thy blessed apostles, wouldst keep it under Thy constant protection; that it may be governed by those same rulers, whom as vicars of Thy work, Thou didst set over it to be its pastors. And therefore with Angels and Archangels, with Thrones and Dóminations and with all the hosts of the heavenly army, we sing the hymn of Thy glory, evermore saying:
      HOLY, HOLY, HOLY...
