Capharnaum Synagogue

From the Roman Catholic Daily Missal, 1962:

The Liturgy today alludes to the ordinations of Ember Saturday.  Christ is our Savior, and the Priests of the Church are made rich in Him.  The Church is blessed abundantly in and through our Lord Jesus Christ

Collect

Dirigat corda nostra, quaesumus, Domine, tuae miserationis operatio: quia tibi sine te placer non possumus.  Per Dominum nostrum.

Let the exercise of Thy compassion, we beseech Thee, O Lord, direct our hearts: for without Thee we are not able to please Thee.  Through our Lord.

Epistle (1 Cor. 1:4-8)

The Priests have been “blessed in Christ our Lord with all manner of riches, both of utterance and knowledge.”  Let us give thanks to God.

Brethren, I give thanks to my God always for you, for the grace of God that is given you in Jesus Christ, that in all things you are made rich for Him in all utterance and in all knowledge, as the testimony of Christ was confirmed in you; so that nothing is wanting to you in any grace, waiting for the manifestation of our Lord Jesus Christ.  Who also will confirm you unto the end without crime, in the day of the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Gospel (Mt. 9:1-8)

Healing of the man sick of the palsy at Capharnaum.  The Priests have received the power to heal souls, to pardon sinners.

At that time, Jesus entering into a boat, passed over the water and came into His own city.  And behold they brought Him one sick of the palsy lying in a bed; and Jesus seeing their faith, said to the man sick of the palsy: Be of good heart, son, thy sins are forgiven thee.  And behold some of the scribes said within themselves: He blasphemeth.  And Jesus seeing their thoughts, said: Why do you think evil in your hearts?  Whether is easier, to say, Thy sins are forgiven thee, or to say: Arise and walk?  But that you may know that the Son of man hath power on earth to forgive sins (then said He to the man sick of palsy): Arise, take up thy bed, and go into thy house.  And he arose, and went into his house.  And the multitude seeing it feared, and glorified God Who had given such power to men.

From the Roman Catholic Daily Missal, 1962:

The Liturgy reminds us today of the great commandment of charity towards God and our neighbor. ‘The precept is twofold,’ declares St. Augustine, ‘but charity is one.’ We love God above all and our neighbor for His sake.

Collect

As, quaesumus, Domine, populo tuo diabolica vitare contagia: et te solum Deum pura mente sectari.  Per Dominum nostrum.

Grant, we beseech Thee, O Lord, that Thy people may shun all the wiles of the devil: and with pure mind follow Thee, the only God.  Through our Lord.

Epistle (Eph. 4:1-6)

The unity of our faith, like the unity of the Persons of the Most Holy Trinity, imposes on us the duty of being united in the bonds of charity.

Brethren: I, a prisoner in the Lord, beseech you that you walk worthy of the vocation in which you are called.  With all humility and mildness, with patience, supporting one another in charity, careful to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.  One body and one Spirit; as you are called in one hope of your calling.  One Lord, one faith, one baptism.  One God and Father of all, Who is above all, and through all, and in us all; Who is blessed for ever and ever.  Amen.

Gospel (Mt. 22:34-46)

Precepts of charity towards God and towards our neighbor, given by our Lord Jesus Christ.

At that time, the Pharisees came to Jesus, and one of them, a doctor of the law, asked Him, tempting Him: Master, which is the greatest commandment in the law?  Jesus said to him: Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with thy whole heart, and with thy whole soul, and with thy whole mind.  This is the greatest and the first commandment.  And the second is like to this: Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.  On these two commandments dependeth the whole law and the Prophets.  And the Pharisees being gathered together, Jesus asked them, saying: What think you of Christ?  Whose son is He?  They say to Him: David’s.  He saith to them: How then doth David in spirit call Him Lord, saying: The Lord said to my Lord: Sit on My right hand, until I make Thine enemies Thy footstool?  If David then call Him Lord, how is He his son?  And no man was able to answer Him a word; neither durst any man from that day forth ask Him any more questions.
