Introduction

This blog contains regular postings relating to the Traditional Latin Liturgy of the Roman Catholic Church. It includes regular commentary on the saints days and the liturgical cycle, with brief background and extracts from the liturgy both in Latin and English. Much of the material has been extracted from the 'St Andrew's Daily Missal', Dom Gueranger's 'Liturgical Year', or similar sources.

24th Sunday after Pentecost (5th remaining after Epiphany)

24th Sunday after Pentecost (5th remaining after Epiphany)

For the 4th, 5th and 6th Sundays after the Epiphany, when they are celebrated after Pentecost, the chanted propers of the mass - Introit, Gradual, Alleluia, Offertory, and Communion - are repetitions of those for the 23rd Sunday.

In the gospels for the preceding Sundays, the divinity of Jesus was manifested in His miracles: today it is affirmed by His doctrine, at which the Jews of Nazareth "wondered."

In Jesus' kingdom here on earth there are both good and bad subjects, wheat and tares, and it is only when our Lord comes to judge men, that He will separate the one from the other for all eternity.

Famíliam tuam, quaesumus, Dómine, contínua pietáte custódi: ut, quae in sola spe grátiae coeléstis innítitur, tua semper protectióne muniátur.
In Thine infinite goodness, we beseech Thee, O Lord, to watch over Thy household, that even as it relies solely upon the hope of Thy heavenly grace, so it may ever be defended by Thy protection.
(Collect)
