Saint Margaret. Virgin And Martyr. Feast Day, Today, 20 July. And Zephyrinus Shows Off His New Missale Romanum From 1861. (Much Better Than A "Missalette").


Text from The Saint Andrew Daily Missal,
unless stated otherwise.

Saint Margaret. 
   Virgin And Martyr. 
   Feast Day 20 July.

Simple.

Red Vestments.


The Introit for The Mass for Saint Margaret, Virgin and Martyr, on 20 July, from Zephyrinus's new Missale Romanum (dated 1861), which was very kindly given by a Priest friend. Readers will have to decide, themselves, whether this Liturgical presentation has more Sanctity, Profundity, and Worth, than what is often on offer in today's "Missalettes".
The size of the Missale Romanum is 17 inches tall (43 cm) and 12 inches wide (30 cm).
Not exactly designed to fit into one's pocket. It was probably designed to rest on
an 
Eagle Brass Lectern in a Monastic Sanctuary.
Mass: Me exspectavérunt.
All Illustrations: ZEPHYRINUS

Margaret, who had been taught The Christian Religion by her nurse, perished by the sword in the cruel General Persecution, at Antioch, in Pisidia, towards 255 A.D. - 275 A.D.

From The East, her Veneration was carried to The West, during The Crusades. She is especially invoked by those about to become mothers. Her name is in The List of The Fourteen Auxiliary Saints (see The Post for 28 July 2015).

Mass: Me exspectavérunt.
