THE EF COMMUNITIES, THE ORDINARIATE COMMUNITIES AND HIGH ANGLICAN COMMUNITIES WILL HAVE IT STARTING THIS SUNDAY, JANUARY 24TH! GUESS WHO WON'T HAVE IT? THE RED HEADED STEP CHILD OF THE CHURCH, THE ORDINARY FORM COMMUNITY, THE MAJORITY OF CATHOLICS! HOW UNFAIR IS THAT? WHAT AM I SPEAKING OF? SEPTUAGESIMA!!!!!
With all the negative assessment of our Holy Father concerning the expansion of whose feet are to be washed in an optional ritual of the Roman Missal for the Evening Mass of the Lord's Supper, wouldn't you think these same negative people would heap praise on Pope Francis as His Holiness is the very one who approved the publication of the glorious new Ordinariate Roman Missal! And this Missal is much more important to the Universal Church than that damn foot washing ceremony that takes place obscurely only once a year. This missal is celebrated every dang day!
This is for this Sunday from the Catholic Ordinariate's Missal and verbatim and the vestment color is violet but I cannot find what readings are used from the lectionary for Septuagesima. Anyone know?:
THE SUNDAY CALLED SEPTUAGESIMA
THIRD SUNDAY BEFORE LENT
Introit Circumdederunt (Cr. Ps 18:407, 1,2)
The sorrows of death came about me; the pains of hell gat (yes gat!) hold upon me: and in my tribulation I made my prayer unto the Lord, and he regarded my supplication out of his holy temple.
(Ps) I will love thee, O Lord, my strength: the Lord is my stony rock, my fortress, and my Saviour.
Glory to the Father....
The Gloria shall not be said from this day forth until the Easter Vigil except on Maundy Thursday and on Solemnities and Feasts.
O Lord, we beseech thee favourably to hear the prayers of they people: that we, who are justly punished for our offences, may be mercifully delivered by they goodness, for the glory of thy Name; through Jesus Christ thy Son our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, ever one god, world without end. Amen.
Gradual Adiutor in opportunitatibus (Cf. Ps 9:9, 10, 18, 19)
The Lord will be a refuge in the time of trouble; and they that know thy Name will put their trust in thee: for thou, Lord, hast never failed them that seek thee.
V. For the poor shall not always be forgotten; the patient abiding of the meek shall not perish for ever: up, Lord, and let not man have the upper hand.
The Tract is said on Sunday only.
Tract De profundis (Ps 130: 1-4)
Out of the deep have I called unto thee, O Lord: Lord, hear my voice.
V. O let thine ears consider well: the voice of my complaint.
V. If thous, Lord, wilt be extreme to mark what is done amiss: O Lord, who may abide it?
V. For there is mercy with thee: therefore shalt thou be feared.
The Creed is said.
Offertory Bonum est (Ps 92:1)
It is a good thing to give thanks unto the Lord: and to sing praises unto thy Name, O Most Highest.
Prayer over the Offerings
We beseech thee, O Lord, graciously to accept these our prayers and oblations: that we being cleansed by these heavenly mysteries, may obtain of thy great mercy the fulfillment of all our desires; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Preface of Pre-Lent
The Lord be with you.
And with thy spirit.
Lift up your hearts.
We lift them up unto the Lord.
Let us give thanks unto the Lord our God.
It is meet and right so to do.
It is very meet, right, and our bounden duty, that we should at all times, andin all places, give thanks unto thee, O Lord, holy Father, almighty, everlasting God, through Jesus Christ our Lord; who was in every way tempted like as we are, yet did not sin; by whose grace we are able to triumph over every evil, and to live no longer unto ourselves, but unto him who died for us and rose again.
Therefore with Angels and Archangels, and with all the company of heaven, we laud and magnify thy glorious Name; ever more praising thee, and saying:
Holy holy, holy....
Communion Illumina faciem (Ps 31:18, 19)
Show thy servant the light of thy countenance, and save me for thy mercy's sake: let me not be confounded, O Lord, for I have called upon thee.
Strengthen, O Lord, we pray thee, the wills of thy faithful people with these thy gifts: that we receiving the same may seek them more earnestly, and seeking the same may obtain them everlastingly; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
MY FINAL COMMENT: SIMPLY GLORIOUS, NO? SHOULD WE BE ENVIOUS DURING THE SEASON OF SEPTUAGESIMA OR SIMPLY GIVE PRAISE TO GOD AND HIS HOLY CHURCH FOR ALLOWING AT LEAST A MINORITY OF CATHOLICS TO EXPERIENCE THIS GLORIOUS SEASON ONCE AGAIN. THE REST OF US CAN SIMPLY LIVE VICARIOUSLY THROUGH THEM! BOO HOO! IT'S JUST NOT FAIR! NO, I MEAN, GOD BLESS THEIR LITTLE HEARTS.
