THE LAST ”RESUMED” SUNDAY AFTER EPIPHANY

For this Sunday’s Resumed 6th Sunday after Epiphany turn to “Supplementary Mass D” in the Campion missal (page 427).

 

Or turn to the 6th Sunday after Epiphany in your own hand missal to follow the Epistle and Gospel readings and prayers (e.g. the collect and postcommunion) sung by the priest.

 

And turn to 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.

 

USING YOUR 1962 HAND MISSAL TO PRAY SUNDAY VESPERS

The official liturgy of the Church consists of both the Mass and the Divine Office, which assigns psalms to specific times (“hours”) throughout each day, from before dawn until after sunset. These are arranged so that all 150 Psalms in the Bible are prayed each week, together with associated canticles, hymns, readings, and prayers. The traditional Divine Office for each day of the year is prescribed in the Roman Breviary (e.g., here), just as the Mass for each day is prescribed in the Roman Missal (e.g., here and here)—click the images below.

Baronius 1962 Missal

 

The Hour of Vespers is the evening prayer of the Church. It includes five psalms (each preceded and followed by an antiphon), a brief reading with responsory, a hymn, Mary’s Magnificat, and the day’s Mass Collect as its closing prayer.

 

The five psalms of Sunday Vespers (the same ones every Sunday)—and the hour’s other fixed parts—begin at page 98 in the Angelus Missal, at page 103 in the Baronius Missal. The variable parts for each Sunday Vespers—which include the psalm antiphons in the seasons of Advent and Lent—appear in the missal immediately following the Mass for that Sunday.

 

For instance, to pray Vespers for the First Sunday of Advent in your hand missal, start with ribbons at pages 98 and 140 in the Angelus Missal, at pages 103 and 146 in the Baronius Missal. Those unfamiliar with the structure of Vespers can check how the parts given in your missal correspond with Vespers as detailed at the Divinum Officium web site (here)

 

WHAT IS A REQUIEM MASS WITH “ABSOLUTION AT THE CATAFALQUE”?
(Which was celebrated here at Holy Ghost Church on All Souls Day this year.) Fr. Zuhlsdorf answers the question here:

 

Traditionally we pray over the bodies of the dead before they are consigned to their earthly resting place to await the Resurrection at the end of things.   These prayers ask God’s mercy on the deceased and petition a relief of temporal punishment due to sin so as to speed their souls to heaven.

 

When, in the traditional form of the Roman Rite, we have a Requiem Mass for the Dead, we can also have an “absolution of the catafalque”.  A catafalque is a framework, often decorated, which supports a coffin during a funeral or while lying in state.  At the end of a Requiem Mass when the deceased’s body is present, the coffin is on the catafalque. However, we celebrate Requiem Masses in the traditional form for the dead even when the body is not present. . . .

 

[In this case, there is still] the absolution at the end, as if there were a body present.  The catafalque would be set up and the absolution would be given, as if there were a body. After the Mass, the celebrant puts on a black cope and goes to the catafalque. Chants and prayers are sung.  He goes about the catafalque with holy water and incense. 

 

So, in short, the catafalque symbolizes the moral presence of the bodies of those for whom we are praying for relief from temporal punishment due to sin and swift entrance to heaven.  In the traditional rite, we treat it much as we would the body of the deceased, with the chants, prayers and absolution as if before burial.

 

Fairly simple, rather like ours at Holy Ghost

 

More elaborate, at the FSSP church in Rome
