Léctio Epístolæ beáti Pauli Apóstoli ad Colossénses.

Lesson from the Epistle of blessed Paul the Apostle to the Colossians.


FRATRES: Indúite vos sicut elécti Dei, sancti, et dilécti, víscera misericórdiæ, benignitátem, humilitátem, modéstiam, patiéntiam: supportántes ínvicem, et donántes vobismetípsis si quis advérsus áliquem habet querélam: sicut et Dóminus do návit vobis, ita et vos. Super ómnia autem hæc, caritátem habéte, quod est vínculum perfectiónis et pax Christi exsúltet in córdibus vestris, in qua et vocáti estis in uno córpore: et grati estóte. This text copied without authorisation from the SSPX website for Great Britain. Verbum Christi hábitet in vobis abundánter, in omni sapiéntia docéntes, et commonéntes vosmetípsos, psalmis, hymnis, et cánticis spirituálibus, in grátia cantántes in córdibus vestris Deo. Omne quodcúmque fácitis in verbo aut in ópere, ómnia in nómine Dómini Jesu Christi, grátias agéntes Deo et Patri per Jesum Christum.

BRETHREN, put ye on, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, the bowels of mercy, benignity, humility, modesty, patience; bearing with one another, and forgiving one another, if any have a complaint against another, even as the Lord hath forgiven you, so you also. But above all these things, have charity, which is the bond of perfection: and let the peace of Christ rejoice in your hearts, wherein also you are called in one body: and be ye thankful. This text copied without authorisation from the SSPX website for Great Britain. Let the word of Christ dwell in you abundantly, in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another, in psalms, hymns, and spiritual canticles, singing in grace in your hearts to God. All whatsoever you do in word or in work, all things do ye in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, giving thanks to God and the Father through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Gospel (Matthew 13, 31-35)

+ Sequéntia sancti Evangélii secúndum Matthǽum.

+ Continuation of the Holy Gospel according to Saint Matthew.


IN ILLO témpore: Dixit Jesus turbis parábolam hanc: Símile est regnum cœlórum grano sinápis, quod accípiens homo seminávit in agro suo: quod minimum quidem est ómnibus seminibus: cum autem créverit, majus est ómnibus oléribus, et fit arbor ita ut vólucres cœli véniant, et hábitent in ramis ejus. Aliam parábolam locútus est eis: Simile est regnum cœlórum ferménto, quod accéptum múlier abscóndit in farinæ satis tribus, danec fermentátum est totum. This text copied without authorisation from the SSPX website for Great Britain. Hæc ómnia locútus est Jesus in parábolis ad turbas: et sine parábolis non loquebátur eis: ut implerétur quod dictum erat per Prophétam dicéntem: Apériam in Parábolis os meum, eructábo abscóndita a constitutióne mundi.

AT THAT time, Jesus spoke this parable to the multitudes: The kingdom of heaven is like to a grain of mustard-seed, which a man took and sowed in his field: which is the least indeed of all seeds; but when it is grown up, it is greater than all herbs, and becometh a tree; so that the birds of the air come, and dwell in the branches thereof. Another parable he spoke to them: The kingdom of heaven is like to leaven, which a woman took and hid in three measures of meal, until the whole was leavened. This text copied without authorisation from the SSPX website for Great Britain. All these things Jesus spoke in parables to the multitudes, and without parables He did not speak to them; that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying, I will open my mouth in parables, I will utter things hidden from the foundation of the world.


Offertory (Psalm 117, 16, 17)

DÉXTERA Dómini fecit virtútem, déxtera Dómini exaltávit me: non móriar, sed vivam, et narrábo ópera Dómini.

THE RIGHT hand of the Lord hath wrought strength, the right hand of the Lord hath exalted me: I shall not die, but live, and shall declare the works of the Lord.


Secret

HÆC NOS oblátio, Deus, mundet, quæsumus, et rénovet, gubérnet, et prótegat. Per Dóminum nostrum Jesum Christum fílium tuum, qui tecum vivit et regnat in unitate Spíritus Sancti, Deus, per ómnia sæcula sæculórum. This text copied without authorisation from the SSPX website for Great Britain. Amen.

MAY THIS oblation, O God, we beseech Thee, cleanse, renew, govern, and protect us. Through Our Lord Jesus Christ, Thy Son, Who liveth and reigneth with Thee in the unity of the Holy Ghost, God, world without end. This text copied without authorisation from the SSPX website for Great Britain. Amen.


Preface of the Most Holy Trinity

On Trinity Sunday, at Votive Masses of the Blessed Trinity and on all Sundays throughout the year, except in Paschaltide and on feasts which have their own proper Preface.

VERE DIGNUM et justum est, aequum et salutare, nos tibi semper, et ubique gratias agere: Domine sancte, Pater omnipotens, aeterne Deus: Qui cum unigenito Filio tuo, et Spiritu Sancto, unus es Deus, unus es Dominus: non in unius singularitate personae, sed in unius Trinitate substantiae. Quod enim de tua gloria, revelante te, credimus, hoc de Filio tuo, hoc de Spiritu Sancto, sine differentia discretionis sentimus. This text copied without authorisation from the SSPX website for Great Britain. Ut in confessione verae sempiternaeque Deitatis, et in personis proprietas, et in essentia unitas, et in majestate adoretur aequalitas. Quam laudant Angeli atque Archangeli, Cherubim quoque ac Seraphim: qui non cessant clamare quotidie, una voce dicentes: Sanctus, Sanctus, Sanctus...

IT IS TRULY meet and just, right and available to salvation, that we should always, and in all places, give thanks to Thee, O holy Lord, Father almighty, eternal God. Who with Thine only-begotten Son and the Holy Ghost art one God, one Lord: not in the unity of a single person, but in the trinity of a single nature. For that which we believe of Thy Son, that same of the Holy Ghost, without difference or discrimination. This text copied without authorisation from the SSPX website for Great Britain. So that in confessing the true and everlasting Godhead, we shall adore distinction in persons, oneness in being, and equality in majesty. This the angels and archangels, the cherubim, too, and the seraphim do praise; day by day they cease not to cry out, saying as with one voice: Holy, Holy, Holy...


Communion (Luke 4, 22)

MIRABÁNTUR omnes de his, quæ procedébant de ore Dei.

THEY ALL wondered at these things, which proceeded from the mouth of God.

CÆLÉSTIBUS, Dómine, pasti delíciis: quæsumus; ut semper éadem, per quæ veráciter vívimus, appetámus.

This text copied without authorisation from the SSPX website for Great Britain. Amen.

BEING FED with celestial delights, we beseech Thee, O Lord, that we may ever hunger after those things by which we truly live. Through Our Lord Jesus Christ, Thy Son, Who liveth and reigneth with Thee in the unity of the Holy Ghost, God, world without end. This text copied without authorisation from the SSPX website for Great Britain. Amen.
