Saint Pius X
I have raised up a chosen man from my people, with my holy oil I have anointed him so that my hand is always with him and my arm strengthens him. Ps. The graces of the Lord I will sing forever, with my mouth I will make known thy faithfulness through all the ages. Glory be to the Father.
O God, who for the defence of the Catholic Faith and the restoration of all things in Christ didst fill Saint Pius, Supreme Pontiff, with heavenly wisdom and apostolic courage: grant in Thy loving kindness that by following his teachings and examples we may attain eternal rewards. Through our Lord.
1 Thessalonians 2:2-8
Brethren: we had confidence in our God to preach to you the gospel of God amid much anxiety. For our exhortation was not from error, nor from impure motives, nor from guile. But as approved by God to be entrusted with the gospel, so we speak not as pleasing men, but God, who proves our hearts. For at no time have we used words of flattery, as you know, nor any pretext for avarice, God is witness, nor have we sought glory from men, neither from you nor from others. Although as the apostles of Christ we could have claimed a position of honour among you, still while in your midst we were as children: as if a nurse were cherishing her own children, so we in our love for you would gladly have imparted to you not only the gospel of God, but also our own souls: because you had become most dear to us.
I have proclaimed thy justice in the great assembly. Lo, I did not restrain my lips; Lord, thou knowest. I have not hidden thy justice within my heart; I have declared thy faithfulness and thy help.
Alleluia, alleluia. Thou preparest a table for me, thou anointest my head with oil, my cup brims over. Alleluia.
At that time, At that time Jesus said to Simon Peter: Simon, Son of John, dost thou love Me more than these do? He said to Him: Yea, Lord, thou knowest that I love Thee. He said to him: Feed My lambs. He said to him a second time: Simon, son of John, dost thou love Me? He said to him: Yea, Lord, thou knowest that I love Thee. He said to him: Feed My lambs. A third time He said to him: Simon, son of John, dost thou love Me? Peter was grieved because He said to him for the third time: Dost thou love Me? And he said to Him: Lord, Thou knowest all things, Thou knowest that I love Thee. He said to him: Feed My sheep.
Come, children, hearken to me; I will teach you the fear of the Lord.
Graciously accept these our offerings, we beseech Thee, O Lord, and through the intercession of Saint Pius, Supreme Pontiff, grant that we may treat these divine mysteries with unfeigned veneration and ever receive them with heartfelt faith. Through our Lord.
My Flesh is meat indeed and My Blood is drink indeed. He that eateth My Flesh and drinketh My Blood abideth in Me, and I in him.
We beseech Thee, O Lord our God, that we who have been replenished with strength at the heavenly table may, by the intercession of Saint Pius, Supreme Pontiff, be also steadfast in the faith and of one mind through love of Thee. Through our Lord.
