SUNDAY OF LENT
preparation before Sunday’s Mass, and Lenten reflection during the following
Quǽsumus, omnípotens Deus, vota humílium

We beseech You, almighty God, hear the
prayers of the humble and stretch forth the right hand of Your majesty to
humility before the majesty of God.
Hæc hóstia, Dómine, quǽsumus,
emúndet nostra delícta: et, ad sacrifícium celebrándum, subditórum tibi
córpora mentésque sanctíficet.
May this offering, we beseech You, O
Lord, cleanse us of our sins, and make holy the bodies and minds of Your
servants for the celebration of the sacrificial rite.
A cunctis nos, quǽsumus, Dómine,
reátibus et perículis propitiátus absólve: quos tanti mystérii tríbuis esse
Be merciful, O Lord, we beseech You,
and free from guilt and danger those whom You grant to share in this great
Our guilt and God’s mercy.

Luke 11: 14-28

MONDAY, MARCH 25 – THE ANNUNCIATION OF THE BLESSED VIRGIN MARY
Celebrating the Archangel Gabriel’s announcement
to Mary of Our Lord’s conception in her virginal womb by an overshadowing of
the Holy Spirit. For additional reflection during the coming week, this
solemnity’s proper orations, which already at the annunciation of His
conception anticipate Our Lord’s passion and resurrection (even as we
ourselves do in our Lenten devotions):
Deus, qui de beátæ Maríæ Vírginis
útero Verbum tuum, Angelo nuntiánte, carnem suscípere voluísti: præsta
supplícibus tuis; ut, qui vere eam Genetrícem Dei crédimus, eius apud te
O God, Who, by the message of an
angel, willed Your Word to take flesh in the womb of the Blessed Virgin
Mary, grant that we, Your suppliants, who believe her to be truly the Mother
of God, may be helped by her intercession with You.
In méntibus nostris, quǽsumus,
Dómine, veræ fídei sacraménta confírma: ut, qui concéptum de Vírgine Deum
verum et hóminem confitémur; per eius salutíferæ resurrectiónis poténtiam,
ad ætérnam mereámur perveníre lætítiam.
Fix firmly in our minds, O Lord, we
beseech You, the mysteries of the true faith; that we who believe Him,
conceived of a Virgin, to be true God and man, may be found worthy to reach
eternal happiness through the power of His redeeming resurrection.
Grátiam tuam, quǽsumus, Dómine,
méntibus nostris infúnde: ut, qui. Angelo nuntiánte, Christi Fílii tui
incarnatiónem cognóvimus; per passiónem eius et crucem, ad resurrectiónis
Pour forth, we beseech You, O Lord,
Your grace into our hearts, that we, to whom the incarnation of Christ,
Your Son, was made known by the message of an angel, may, by His passion
and cross, be brought to the glory of the resurrection.
The propers of a great feast of Our
Lady or Our Lord are typically more eloquent and loquacious than the rather
the rather spare and severe Lenten propers of recent Sunday Masses.
By contemporary artist Daniel Mitsui
Around the figure of the
Archangel and the Blessed Virgin are vignettes of Old Testament figures,
foreshadowing the Annunciation.
Maria gratia plena, Dominus tecum
Hail Mary full of grace, the
Lord is with thee
tu in mulieribus, et
Blessed art thou among women, and
fructus ventris tui, Jesus.
Blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
HOLY ROSARY EACH SUNDAY
Starting at 11:10 am preceding the 12
