THE PROPER ORATIONS FOR THE 3RD SUNDAY OF LENT

 

For preparation before Sunday’s Mass, and Lenten reflection during the following week.

 

Collect

Quǽsumus, omnípotens Deus, vota humílium réspice: atque, ad defensiónem nostram, déxteram tuæ maiestátis exténde.

We beseech You, almighty God, hear the prayers of the humble and stretch forth the right hand of Your majesty to protect us.

 

Our humility before the majesty of God.

 

Secret

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.

 

Sin and sacrifice.

 

Postcommunion

A cunctis nos, quǽsumus, Dómine, reátibus et perículis propitiátus absólve: quos tanti mystérii tríbuis esse partícipes.

Be merciful, O Lord, we beseech You, and free from guilt and danger those whom You grant to share in this great sacrament.

 

Our guilt and God’s mercy.

 

THE GOSPEL FOR THE THIRD SUNDAY OF LENT

 

 

 

DOMINICA III QUADRAGESIMAE

Sunday 3 of Lent

 

 

 

Gospel

Luke 11: 14-28

 

“And he was casting out a devil, and the same was dumb: and when he had cast out the devil, the dumb spoke: and the multitudes were in admiration at it.”

 

 

 

 

 

Sanatur daemoniacus caecus et mutus.

Casting out devils from the blind and the mute.

 

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):

 

Collect

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 intercessiónibus adiuvémur.

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.

 

Secret

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.

 

Postcommunion

Grátiam tuam, quǽsumus, Dómine, méntibus nostris infúnde: ut, qui. Angelo nuntiánte, Christi Fílii tui incarnatiónem cognóvimus; per passiónem eius et crucem, ad resurrectiónis glóriam perducámur.

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.

 

 

The Annunciation (info here)

By contemporary artist Daniel Mitsui

 

 

 

 

Around the figure of the Archangel and the Blessed Virgin are vignettes of Old Testament figures, foreshadowing the Annunciation.  

 

 

 

 

Ave Maria gratia plena, Dominus tecum

Hail Mary full of grace, the Lord is with thee

 

Benedicta tu in mulieribus, et

Blessed art thou among women, and

 

Benedidictus fructus ventris tui, Jesus.

Blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.

 

 

HOLY ROSARY EACH SUNDAY

Starting at 11:10 am preceding the 12 noon Latin Mass at Holy Ghost Church.
