So it is just after 0200 here. It's the feast of the Apostle Saint James in the Traditional Rite (Introibo), and the 9th Sunday post Pentecosten in the Kalendar as revised by John XXIII; the Mass of the Sunday, Ecce Deus adiuvat me, is being sung at Saint-Eugène (Introibo) with the commemoration of Saint James.
The program of the Mass is here; apart from the proper of course it looks to be a repetition of last Sunday, from the point of the music, with the addition of Ave verum corpus at Communion, the Sub tuum praesidium at the Last Gospel, and Loué soit à tout instant of Saint Louis Maria Grignon de Montfort at the end.
Summertime! It is hot at Saint-Eugène, judging by the glimpse of people fanning themselves as the camera came up at the beginning of Mass, and I'm sure that a certain number of members of the Schola are absent on vacation and so forth. The Gospel lesson is from Saint Luke, 19,41-47.
In illo témpore: Cum appropinquáret Iesus Ierúsalem, videns civitátem, flevit super illam, dicens: Quia si cognovísses et tu, et quidem in hac die tua, quæ ad pacem tibi, nunc autem abscóndita sunt ab óculis tuis. Quia vénient dies in te: et circúmdabunt te inimíci tui vallo, et circúmdabunt te: et coangustábunt te úndique: et ad terram prostérnent te, et fílios tuos, qui in te sunt, et non relínquent in te lápidem super lápidem: eo quod non cognóveris tempus visitatiónis tuæ. Et ingréssus in templum, cœpit eiícere vendéntes in illo et eméntes, dicens illis: Scriptum est: Quia domus mea domus oratiónis est. Vos autem fecístis illam speluncam latrónum. Et erat docens cotídie in templo.
At that time, when Jesus drew near to Jerusalem and saw the city, He wept over it, saying, If you had known, in this your day, even you, the things that are for your peace! But now they are hidden from your eyes. For days will come upon you when your enemies will throw up a rampart about you, and surround you and shut you in on every side, and will dash you to the ground and your children within you, and will not leave in you one stone upon another, because you have not known the time of your visitation. And He entered the temple, and began to cast out those who were selling and buying in it, saying to them, It is written, ‘My house is a house of prayer,’ but you have made it a den of thieves. And He was teaching daily in the temple.
Scriptum est, quia domus mea domus orationis est. Vos autem fecistis illam speluncam latronum.
Ante Sextam. Vespers is completed.
It is also the feast of Saint Christopher (3rd century), of Saint John (7th century), and of Saint Magnericus (6th century).
V. Et álibi aliórum plurimórum sanctórum Mártyrum et Confessórum, atque sanctárum Vírginum. R. Deo grátias.
