A Traditional Latin High Mass, in Celebration of The Feast of The Most Precious Blood of Our Lord, was Celebrated on Sunday, 1 July 2018, at Saint Matthew's Catholic Church, which has a Latin Mass every Sunday at 3:00 P.M. Saint Matthew's Church Web-Site can be found at CATHOLIC WEB-SITE

The Liturgy, that admirable summary of The History of The Church, reminds us every Year, that, at this date in 1849, thanks to The French Army, the Revolution which had driven the Pope from Rome was vanquished.

To perpetuate the memory of this triumph, and to show that it was due to The Saviour's Merits, Blessed Pope Pius IX, at the time a refugee at Gaeta, Italy, instituted The Feast of The Precious Blood.

Pope Pius XI, in 1934, raised this Feast to the Rank of Double of The First Class.

Ye shall observe this day for a Memorial:
And ye shall keep it Holy unto The Lord,
Throughout your generations
With an everlasting Worship.

[Exodus, Chapter xii, Verse 14]


The Heart of Jesus has made this adorable Blood circulate in His limbs; wherefore, as on The Feast of The Sacred Heart, the Gospel presents to our view the thrust of the lance which pierced the side of The Divine Crucified, Blood and Water gushing forth. [The Office of Matins speaks of The Blood, which Jesus shed at The Circumcision, in The Garden of Olives, The Flagellation, The Crowning of Thorns and on The Cross.]

Thus become united the two testimonies which The Holy Ghost bore to The Messias, when He was Baptised in The Waters of The Jordan and when He was Baptised in Blood on The Cross (Gradual). [“The Docetes” taught that Jesus was The Christ at His Baptism, and had thus come by Water, but being no longer Christ on The Cross, He had not come by Blood.]

Let us do homage to The Precious Blood of Our Redeemer, which the Priest offers to God on the Altar.

The following Text is from Wikipedia - the free encyclopædia.

The Devotion to The Sacred Heart (also known as The Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, “Sacratissimum Cor Iesu”, in Latin) is one of the most widely-practised and well-known Catholic Devotions, wherein The Sacred Heart of Jesus is viewed as a symbol of “God's boundless and passionate love for mankind”.[1]

This Devotion is predominantly used in The Catholic Church, followed by High-Church AnglicansLutherans, and some Western Rite Orthodox. In The Latin Church, the Liturgical Solemnities of The Most Sacred Heart of Jesus are Celebrated on The First Friday after Corpus Christi, or nineteen days after Pentecost Sunday.[2] The twelve Promises of The Most Sacred Heart of Jesus are also devoutly remembered and followed.

The Devotion is especially concerned with what The Church teaches
to be the long-suffering love and compassion of The Most Sacred Heart of Christ towards humanity.

The popularisation of this Devotion, in its modern form, is
derived from a Roman Catholic Nun from France, Saint Margaret Mary Alacoque, who said she learned the Devotion from Jesus during a series of Apparitions between 1673 and 1675,[3] and, later, in the 19th-Century, from the mystical revelations of another Catholic Nun, in Portugal, Blessed Mary of The Divine Heart Droste zu Vischering, a Religious of The Good Shepherd, who requested, In The Name Of Christ, that Pope Leo XIII Consecrate the entire World to The Sacred Heart of Jesus.

Predecessors to the modern Devotion arose unmistakably in
The Middle Ages in various facets of Catholic mysticism, particularly

The Heavenly Door-Keeper has built his Sacred abode at the Gates of The Eternal City, which is an image of Heaven. On the opposite side, the ramparts of the City are protected by Paul's Portico: Rome is between the two."

The following Text is from Wikipedia - the free encyclopædia,
unless stated otherwise.

Paul the Apostle, commonly known as Saint Paul, and also known by his Hebrew name, Saul of Tarsus (Hebrew: שאול התרסי)‎, was an Apostle (although not one of The Twelve Apostles) who taught The Gospel of Christ to The First-Century A.D. World.

Paul is generally considered to be one of the most important figures of The Apostolic Age and, from The Mid-30s A.D. to The Mid-50s A.D., he founded several Christian Communities in Asia Minor and Europe. He took advantage of his status as both a Jew and a Roman citizen, to minister to both Jewish and Roman audiences.

According to The New Testament Book “Acts of The Apostles” (often simply called “Acts”), Paul persecuted some of the Early Disciples of Jesus, possibly Hellenised Diaspora Jews converted to Christianity, in the area of Jerusalem prior to his conversion [Note 1].


In the narrative of Acts, Paul was travelling on the road from Jerusalem to Damascus on a Mission to “arrest them and bring them back to Jerusalem”, when The Resurrected Jesus appeared to him in a great light. He was struck blind, but, after three days, his sight was restored by Ananias of Damascus, and Paul began to Preach that Jesus of Nazareth is The Jewish Messiah and The Son of God [Acts 9:20–21]. Approximately half of “Acts of The Apostles” deals with Paul's Life and Works.

Thirteen of the twenty-seven Books in The New Testament have Traditionally been attributed to Paul. Seven of The Pauline Epistles are undisputed by scholars as being authentic, with varying degrees of argument about the remainder.

Pauline authorship of The Epistle to The Hebrews is not asserted in The Epistle, itself, and was already doubted in the 2nd- and 3rd-Centuries A.D. [Note 2]. It was almost unquestioningly accepted from the 5th- to the 16th-Centuries that Paul was the author of Hebrews, but that view is now almost universally rejected by scholars.


The other six of The Pauline Epistles are believed by some scholars to have come from followers of Paul, writing in his name, using material from Paul's surviving Letters and Letters written by him that no longer survive [Note 3]. Other scholars argue that the idea of a pseudonymous author for the disputed Epistles raises many problems.

Today, Paul's Epistles continue to be vital roots of the Theology, Worship, and Pastoral Life, in the Latin and Protestant Traditions of The West, as well as the Eastern Catholic and Orthodox Traditions of The East.

Paul’s influence on Christian Thought and Practice has been characterised as being as “profound, as it is pervasive”, among that of many other Apostles and Missionaries involved in the spread of The Christian Faith.

Today, the whole Church rejoices, for "God has Consecrated this day by the Martyrdom of The Apostles Peter and Paul" (Collect). In both the Grand Basilicas erected at Rome over the tombs "of these two Princes, who, by The Cross and The Sword, have obtained their seat in The Eternal Senate," [Hymn at Vespers] this double Martyrdom was Celebrated.

Later, on account of the distance which separates the two Churches, the Festival was divided, Saint Peter being more specially honoured on 29 June and Saint Paul on 30 June.

Saint Peter, Bishop of Rome, is the Vicar, that is to say the visible representative of Christ. As is shown in the Preface, Alleluia, Gospel, Offertory and Communion, the Jews had rejected Jesus. They also rejected His successor (Epistle). Displacing the religious centre of the World, Saint Peter then left Jerusalem for Rome, which became The Eternal City and The Seat of The Popes.

Saint Peter, the first Pope, speaks in the name of Christ, Who has communicated to him His Doctrine of Infallibility. He is not guided by flesh and blood, but by the Heavenly Father, Who does not permit The Gates of Hell to prevail against The Church of which he is the foundation (Gospel).

Saint Peter, on receiving The Keys, is placed at the head of the “Kingdom of Heaven” upon Earth, that is to say The Church, and he reigns in the name of Christ, Who has invested him with His Power and Supreme Authority (Gospel).

The names of Saint Peter and Saint Paul head the names of The Apostles in The Canon of The Mass (First List).

With "The Church, which did not cease Praying to God for Saint Peter" (Epistle), let us Pray for his successor "the Servant of God, our Holy Father the Pope" (Canon of The Mass).

The Vigil Of The Holy Apostles, Saint Peter And Saint Paul. 28 June.



Saint Peter and Saint Paul.
Illustration: CATHOLICTRADITION.ORG



Text is from “The Liturgical Year”.
   By: Abbot Guéranger, O.S.B.
   Volume 12.
   Time After Pentecost.
   Book III.

Saint John the Baptist, placed on the confines of the two Testaments, closes The Prophetic Age, The Reign of Hope, and opens The Era of Faith., which possesses the long-expected God, though, as yet, without beholding Him in His Divinity.

Thus, even before The Octave is ended, wherein we pay our homage to the son of Zachary, The Confession of The Apostles is added to The Precursor's testimony to The Word, The Light.

Tomorrow, all Heaven will re-echo with the Solemn protestation first heard at Cæsarea Philippi: “Thou art Christ, The Son of The Living God”; and Simon Bar-Jona, because of this oracle uttered by him, will be The Chosen Rock, supporting The Divine Structure, The Church.


Tomorrow, he will die, sealing his glorious declaration with his blood; but, he will live on, in the person of each Roman Pontiff, that he may thus guard this precious testimony in all its integrity, even to the day when Faith will give place to The Eternal Vision.

Coupled with Peter in all his labours, The Doctor of The Gentiles shares his triumph this day; and Rome, more indebted to these two Princes than to all her stout warriors of old, who laid the World prostrate at her feet, beholds their double victory which fixes for ever upon her noble brow the diadem of Spiritual Royalty.

Let us, then, recollect ourselves, preparing our hearts in union with Holy Mother Church, by faithfully observing this Vigil. When the obligation of thus keeping up certain days of preparation previous to the festivals is strictly maintained by a people, it is a sign that Faith is still living amongst them; it proves that they understand the greatness of that which The Holy Liturgy proposes to their homage.


Christians in The West, we who make the glory of Saint Peter and Saint Paul our boast, let us remember the Lent in honour of The Apostles begun by Greek schismatics on the close of The Paschal Solemnities, and continued up to this day.

 The contrast between them and ourselves will be of a nature to stir up our fervour, and to control those tendencies wherein softness and ingratitude hold too large a share. If certain concessions have, for grave reasons, been reluctantly made by The Church, so that The Fast of this Vigil is no longer observed, let us see therein a double motive for holding fast to her precious Tradition.

Let us make up by fervour, thanksgiving, and love, for the severity lacking in our observance, which is yet still maintained by so many Churches notwithstanding their schismatical separation from Rome.

The recital of the following beautiful formulas will help to inspire us with the spirit of The Feast. The first is taken from The Gothic-Gallic Missal: It is The Benediction which, according to the ancient rite used in France, was given to the people before the Communion on The Feast of The Apostles. The Prayers which follow it are from The Leonine Sacramentary.


THE BENEDICTION.

Deus, qui membris Ecclesiæ, velut gemellum lumen quo caveantur tenebræ, fecisti Petri lacrymas, Pauli litteras, coruscare.

Amen.

Hanc plebem placitus inspice: Qui cœlos facis aperire Petro in clave, Paulo in dogmate.

Amen.

Ut præviantibus ducibus, illic grex possit accedere, quo pervenerunt pariter tam ille Pastor suspendio, quam iste Doctor per gladium in congresso.

Per Dominum nostrum . . .

O God, Who to keep the members of Thy Church from darkness, hast made to shine forth, like twin fountains of light, the tears of Peter and the writings of Paul.

Amen.

In Thy clemency, look upon Thy people, O Thou Who givest the Heavens to be opened, by Peter with the key, and by Paul with the sword.

Amen.

So that the leaders going first, thither may the flock at length come, whither have already arrived by one same step, both the Pastor by the gibbet, and the Teacher by the sword.

Through Our Lord . . .


PRAYERS.

Omnipotens sempiterne Deus, qui ineffabili sacramento jus apostolici principatus in Romani nominis arce posuisti, unde se evangelica veritas per tota mundi regna diffunderet: Præsta, ut quod in orbem terrarum eorum prædicatione manavit, christianæ devotionis sequatur universitas.

Præsta quæsumus Ecclesiæ tuæ, Domine, de tantis digne gaudere principibus, et illam sequi pia devotione doctrinam, qua delectos tibi greges sacris mysteriis imbuerunt.

Per Dominum . . .

O Almighty and Eternal God, Who, by an ineffable Mystery hast fixed the right of Apostolic Princedom on the proud summit of the name of Rome, whence evangelic truth may diffuse itself through all the Earth: Grant that what by their preaching hath percolated through the whole World all may follow with Christian devotedness.

Grant to Thy Church, we beseech Thee, O Lord, both worthily to rejoice at having such great Princes, and to follow with loving devotion that teaching of theirs, whereby Thy chosen flocks have been initiated into The Sacred Mysteries.

Through Our Lord . . .

The Church Celebrates, tomorrow, The Feast of The Two Apostles who are the two foundations on which she is solidly established (Collect).

"The rigour to which a people subjects itself by certain days of preparation,", writes Dom Guéranger, "is a mark of The Faith which it has preserved, showing that it understands the greatness of the object proposed by The Holy Liturgy for its Worship." ["The Liturgical Year". By: Dom Guéranger. The Vigil of The Holy Apostles.]

Peter, raised to his Cross (Introit, Gospel), like Christ, rises above the World. He seals, in his blood, his confession of Faith (Gospel of tomorrow) and Love (Gospel) in Jesus, and, henceforth, it will be in His name (Ibid.), and as His Vicar, that he will be king of Souls.

Paul, by sharing his labours and Martyrdom, shares his kingship and his triumph.
