ST. JOHN, APOSTLE AND
Mass prayers and readings
and St. Augustine’s treatise.
In médio Ecclésiæ apéruit os eius, et implévit eum Dóminus spíritu sapiéntiæ et intelléctus; stolam glóriæ índuit eum.
In the midst of the Church he opened his mouth, and the Lord filled him with the spirit of wisdom and understanding and clothed him in a robe of glory.
O God, who through the blessed Apostle John have unlocked for us the secrets of your Word, grant, we pray, that we may grasp with proper understanding what he has so marvelously brought to our ear. Through our Lord.
You are God: we praise you; you are the Lord: we acclaim you; the glorious company of apostles praises you.
Sanctify the offerings we have made, O Lord, we pray, and grant that from the banquet of this supper we may draw forth the hidden wisdom of the eternal Word, which, from this same source, you revealed to your Apostle John. Through Christ our Lord.

[–» Preface of the Nativity of the Lord]
Verbum caro factum est, et habitávit in nobis. Et de plenitúdine eius nos omnes accépimus.
The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us, and from his fullness we have all received.
Grant, we pray, almighty God, that, the Word made flesh proclaimed by the blessed Apostle John may, through this mystery which we have celebrated, ever dwell among us. Through Christ our Lord.
The flesh revealed Life itself
TOPIC: CAN YOU BELIEVE AND BE FILLED WITH HOPE IN SITUATIONS WHERE YOUR LIFE SEEMS LIKE AN EMPTY TOMB?
