16th May, St Ubaldus, Bishop and Confessor

St, Ubaldus, Bishop and Confessor

Ubaldus, born at Gubbio in Umbria, received episcopal consecration (Introit, Epistle, Alleluia) and was obliged by Pope Honorius II to take the government of that church (Communion).

After having, under the guidance of the Holy Ghost, by his charity and apostolic zeal, put to full advantage the talents which God had entrusted it) him, he piously fell asleep and "entered into the joy of his Lord" (Gospel) on Whitsunday evening.

He died in 1160 and his body has remained intact up to our time. Let us ask of this Saint, to whom God gave special power against Satan, to preserve us from all the malice of the devil (Collect).
Statuit ei Dominus testamentum pacis, et principem fecit eum: ut sit illi sacerdotii dignitas in aeternum. * Memento Domine David et omnis mansuetudinis ejus.
The Lord made to him a covenant of peace, and made him a prince; that the dignity of the priesthood should be to him for ever. * O Lord, remember David: and all his meekness.
(Ecclus. 45:30 and Psalm 131:1. From the Introit at Mass).
Auxilium tuum nobis, Domine, quaesumus, placatus impende: et, intercessione beati Ubaldi Confessoris tui atque Pontificis, contra omnes diaboli nequitias dexteram super nos tuae propitiationis extende.
Be appeased, O Lord, we beseech Thee, and come to our aid: and through the prayers of blessed Ubaldus, Thy confessor and bishop, stretch forth in our defense the right hand of Thy mercy and save us from all snares of the devil.
