Collects, Epistles and Gospels
for the Proper of Saints
INTROIT. Mihi autem absit. Gal. 6.
GOD forbid that I should glory, save in the Cross of our
Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and
I unto the world. Ps. 132. Lord, remember David: and all
his trouble. V. Glory be.
ALMIGHTY God, mercifully look upon our infirmities: that
whereas we are afflicted by the burden of our sins, the glorious
intercession of thy Martyr and Bishop Saint Ignatius may be our
succour and defence. [Through]
35 BRETHREN: Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall
tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness,
or peril, or sword?
36 As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long;
we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.
37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through
him that loved us.
38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels,
nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things
39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able
to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus
GRADUAL. Ecclus. 44. Behold a great priest, who in his days pleased
the Lord. V. There was none like unto him to keep the law of
the Most High.
Alleluia, alleluia. V. Gal. 2. I am crucified with Christ:
nevertheless I live, yet not I, but Christ liveth in me. Alleluia.
After Septuagesima, instead of the
Alleluia, and verse following,
TRACT. Ps. 21. Thou hast given him his heart's desire: and
hast not denied him the request of his lips.. V. For thou hast
prevented him with the blessings of goodness. V. Thou hast set
a crown of pure gold upon his head.
GOSPEL. St John 12:24-26
[From Feast of Saint Lawrence, August 10th]
24 At that time: Jesus said unto
his disciples: Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn
of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but
if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit.
25 He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth
his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal.
26 If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there
shall also my servant be: if any man serve me, him will my Father
OFFERTORY. Ps. 8. Thou hast crowned him with
glory and worship: and hast made him to have dominion of the
works of thy hands, O Lord.
WE beseech thee, O Lord, graciously to accept this our sacrifice
which we offer unto thee pleading the merits of thy holy Martyr
and Bishop Saint Ignatius: that the same may effectually avail
for our succour unto everlasting life. Through.
COMMUNION. I am the wheat of Christ: let me be ground
by the teeth of beasts, that I may be found pure bread.
GRANT, we beseech thee, O Lord our God: that like as we whom
thou hast made partakers of thy heavenly food do offer unto thee
our outward worship, so, by the intercession of Saint Ignatius
thy Martyr and Bishop, we may inwardly be profited thereby to
our salvation. Through.
