FIFTH ”RESUMED” SUNDAY AFTER EPIPHANY
For this Sunday’s Resumed 5th Sunday after Epiphany turn to “Supplementary Mass C” in the Campion missal (page 423).
Or, if you bring your own missal to Mass this Sunday, place
· one ribbon at the 5th Sunday after Epiphany, to follow the Epistle and Gospel readings and prayers (e.g. the collect and postcommunion) sung by the priest,
· and another at the 23rd Sunday after Pentecost, to follow the introit, gradual, and the offertory and communion antiphons sung by the choir.
However, the readings inserts provided on the missalette table will have these two Masses "put together". So you can simply follow all the proper prayers and readings in sequence when using a leaflet together with a red/purple missalette.
CHRIST COMMANDS THE WINDS AND THE SEA
For consolation in this time of chaos and turmoil in the church, OnePeterFive (here) recommends
continued reflection this week on this past Sunday’s Gospel, Matthew 8:23-27. As 1P5 somewhat breezily describes it, “the passage is the one where a boat full of experienced seamen-turned-apostles are freaking out because a crazy storm is getting to smash their boat into matchstick-sized driftwood, and Jesus is just taking a little nap.” In the words of Saint Matthew:
“And they came to him, and awaked him, saying: Lord, save us, we perish. And Jesus saith to them: Why are you fearful, O ye of little faith? Then rising up he commanded the winds, and the sea, and there came a great calm. But the men wondered, saying: What manner of man is this, for the winds and the sea obey him?”
NOVEMBER – MONTH OF PRAYER FOR THE POOR SOULS IN PURGATORY
The month of November is traditionally devoted to prayer for the poor souls in purgatory—begging that they who have loved and served God in life through His divine mercy may soon enjoy the consummation of His love in the eternal light of the beatific vision in heaven.
Requiem aeternam dona eis, Domine. Et lux perpetua luceat eis. Fidelium animae, per misericordiam Dei, requiescant in pace. Amen.
Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord. And let perpetual light shine upon them. And may the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.
And, as we pray at each Mass at the Memento of the Roman Canon:
Be mindful also, O Lord of Thy servants N and N, who have gone before us with the sign of faith and who sleep the sleep of peace. To these, O Lord, and to all who rest in Christ, grant, we beseech Thee, a place of refreshment, light, and peace.
PURGATORY – THE FINAL PURIFICATION
For the unvarnished truth in unambiguous plain English, go to the Baltimore Catechism, from which the best catechised generations in U.S. Catholic history learned their faith:
In the more expansive language of the (1992):
1032 This teaching is also based on the practice of prayer for the dead, already mentioned in Sacred Scripture: "Therefore Judas Maccabeus] made atonement for the dead, that they might be delivered from their sin." From the beginning the Church has honored the memory of the dead and offered prayers in suffrage for them, above all the Eucharistic sacrifice, so that, thus purified, they may attain the beatific vision of God. The Church also commends almsgiving, indulgences, and works of penance undertaken on behalf of the dead:
Let us help and commemorate them. If Job's sons were purified by their father's sacrifice, why would we doubt that our offerings for the dead bring them some consolation? Let us not hesitate to help those who have died and to offer our prayers for them.
THIRD-SUNDAY BRUNCH AFTER MASS ON November 18
