6th July, The Octave-Day of SS Peter and Paul, Apostles

The Octave-Day of SS Peter and Paul, Apostles

To-day concludes, by a special Mas, the concert of praise offered during eight days by the Church to the Apostles Peter and Paul, whose names are eternal (Introit, Epistle).

Sapientiam sanctorum narrent populi, et laudes eorum nuntiet ecclesia: nomina autem eorum vivent in saeculum saeculi. * Exsultate, justi, in Domino: rectos decet collaudatio.
Let the people shew forth the wisdom of the Saints, and the Church declare their praise; and their names shall live unto generation and generation. Ps. Rejoice in the Lord, ye just: praise becometh the upright.
(Ecclus 44:14-15 and Psalm 32:1 from the Introit of Mass)

Deus, cujus dextera beatum Petrum ambulantem in fluctibus, ne mergeretur, erexit, et coapostolum ejus Paulum, tertio naufragantem, de profundo pelagi liberavit: exaudi nos propitius, et concede; ut amborum meritis, aeternitatis gloriam consequamur. 
O God, whose right hand upheld blessed Peter walking upon the waves, lest he should sink, and delivered his fellow-apostle Paul when shipwrecked for the third time from the depth of the sea; hear us in Thy mercy, and grant that through their merits we may obtain the glory of everlasting life.
