    Chapter Hymn Verse {from the Proper of the season}
    Eph 3:8-9
    Brethren: Unto me, who am less than the least of all saints, is this grace given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ; and to make all men see what is the fellowship of the Mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God.
    R. Thanks be to God.

    Hymn
    Lo, how the savage crew
    Of our proud sins hath rent
    The heart of our all-gracious God,
    That heart so innocent.

    The soldier's quivering lance
    Our guilt it was that drave,
    Our wicked deeds that to its point
    Such cruel sharpness gave.

    O wounded heart, whence sprang
    The Church, the Saviour's bride;
    Thou door of our salvation's ark
    Set in its mystic side.

    Thou holy fount, whence flows
    The sacred sevenfold flood,
    Where we our filthy robes may cleanse
    In the Lamb's saving blood:

    By sorrowful relapse,
    thee will we rend no more;
    But like the flames, those types of love,
    Strive heavenward to soar.

    Father and Son supreme
    And Spirit, hear our cry;
    Whose is the kingdom, praise and power,
    Through all eternity.
    Amen.

    V. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me.
    R. For I am meek and lowly in Heart.
    But one thing is necessary. Mary hath chosen the best part, which shall not be taken away from her.
    Luke 10:42

  • Hymn {from the Proper of the season}

    O Christ, the world's Creator bright,
     Who didst mankind from sin redeem,
     Light from the Father's glorious light,
     True God of God, in bliss supreme.

     thy love compelled thee to assume
     A mortal body, man to save;
     Reversing the old Adam's doom;
     Our ransom the new Adam gave.

     That love which gloriously framed all
     The earth, the stars, and wondrous sea
     Took pity on our parents' fall,
     Broke all our bonds and set us free.

     O Saviour, let thy potent love
     Flow ever from thy bounteous heart;
     To nations that pure fount above
     The grace of pardon will impart.

     His heart for this was opened wide,
     And wounded by the soldier's spear,
     That freely from his sacred side
     Might flow the streams our souls to clear.

     Glory to Father and to Son,
     And to the Holy Ghost the same,
     To whom all power, when time is done,
     And endless rule, in endless fame.
     Amen.
    But one thing is necessary. Mary hath chosen the best part, which shall not be taken away from her.
    Luke 10:42

  • R. It was not an open enemy that has done me this dishonour, for then I could have borne it,
     * But it was even thou, mine own familiar friend, who did also eat of my Bread.
    V. Neither was it mine adversary that did magnify himself against me, for then peradventure I would have hid myself from him.
    R. But it was even thou, mine own familiar friend, who did also eat of my Bread.

  • From the Encyclical Letter of Pope Pius XI
     
    Among the wonderful developments of sacred teaching and piety, by which the plans of the divine Wisdom are daily made clear to the Church, hardly any is more manifest than the triumphant progress made by the devotion of the most Sacred Heart of Jesus. Very often indeed, during the course of past ages, Fathers, Doctors, and Saints have celebrated our Redeemer's love: and they have said, that the wound opened in the side of Christ was the hidden fountain of all graces. Moreover, from the Middle Ages onward, when the faithful began to shew a more tender piety towards the most sacred Humanity of the Saviour, contemplative souls became accustomed to penetrate through that wound almost to the very Heart itself, wounded for the love of men. And from that time, this form of contemplation became so familiar to all persons of saintly life, that there was no country or religious order in which, during this period, witnesses to it were not to be found. Finally, during recent centuries, and most especially at that period when heretics, in the name of a false piety, strove to discourage Christians from receiving the most Holy Eucharist, the veneration of the most Sacred Heart began to be openly practised, principally through the exertions of St. John Eudes, who is by no means unworthily called the founder of the liturgical worship of the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary.

    But in order to establish fully and entirely the worship of the most Sacred Heart of Jesus, and to spread the same throughout the whole world, God himself chose as his instrument a most humble virgin from the order of the Visitation, St. Margaret Mary Alacoque, who even in her earliest years already had a burning love for the Sacrament of the Eucharist, and to whom Christ the Lord had very many times appeared, and was pleased to make known the riches and the desires of his divine Heart. The most famous of these apparitions was that in which Jesus revealed himself to her in prayer before the blessed Sacrament, shewed her his most Sacred Heart, and, complaining that in return for his unbounded love, he met with nothing but outrages and ingratitude from mankind, he ordered her to concern herself with the establishment of a new feast, on the Friday after the Octave of Corpus Christi, on which his Heart should be venerated with due honour, and that the insults offered him by sinners in the Sacrament of love should be expiated by worthy satisfaction. But there is no one who knoweth not how many and how great were the obstacles which the handmaid of God experienced, in carrying out the commands of Christ; but, endowed with strength by the Lord himself, and actively aided by her pious spiritual directors, who exerted themselves with an almost unbelievable zeal, up to the time of her death she never ceased faithfully to carry out the duty entrusted to her by heaven.

    At length, in the year 1765, the Supreme Pontiff Clement XIII approved the Mass and Office in honour of the most Sacred Heart of Jesus; and Pius IX extended the feast to the universal Church. From then on the worship of the most Sacred Heart, like an overflowing river, washing away all obstacles, hath poured itself forth over all the earth, and, at the dawn of the new century, Leo XIII, having proclaimed a jubilee, decided to dedicate the whole human race to the most Sacred Heart. This consecration was actually carried out with solemn rites in all the churches of the Catholic world, and brought about a great increase of this devotion, leading not only nations but even private families to it, who in countless numbers dedicated themselves to the Divine Heart, and submitted themselves to its royal sway. Lastly, the Sovereign Pontiff Pius XI, in order that, by its solemnity, the feast might answer more fully to the greatly widespread devotion of the Christian people, raised the feast of the most Sacred Heart of Jesus to the rite of a double of the first class, with an octave; and moreover, that the violated rights of Christ, the supreme King and most loving Lord, might be repaired, and that the sins of the nations might be bewailed, he ordered that annually, on that same feast-day, there should be recited an expiatory form of prayer in all the churches of the Christian world.
    V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
    R. Thanks be to God.

    Hymn
    Jesus, behind thy temple's veil,
    Hid in an ark of gold,
    On stones engraven, lay the law
    thy finger wrote of old.

    But in thy body's temple new,
    thy life-blood's throbbing shrine,
    Held, upon fleshly tables graved,
    The law of love divine.

    And when that heart in death was stilled,
    Each temple's veil was riven:
    And lo, within thy love's red shrine,
    To us to look was given.

    There make us gaze and see the love
    Which drew thee, for our sake,
    O great high-priest, thyself to God
    A sacrifice to make.

    Thou, Saviour, cause that every soul
    Which thou hast loved so well,
    May will within thine open heart
    In life and death to dwell.

    Grant it, O Father, only Son,
    And Spirit, God of grace,
    To whom all worship shall be done,
    In every time and place.
    Amen.

    V. With joy shall ye draw water.
    R. Out of the fountains of the Saviour.

    Continuation of the Holy Gospel according to John
    R. Glory be to Thee, O Lord.

    John 19:31-37.
    At that time, the Jews, since it was the Preparation Day, in order that the bodies might not remain upon the cross on the Sabbath - for that Sabbath was a solemn day, - besought Pilate that their legs might be broken, and that they might be taken away. The soldiers therefore came and broke the legs of the first, and of the other, who had been crucified with Him. But when they came to Jesus, and saw that He was already dead, they did not break His legs; but one of the soldiers opened His side with a lance, and immediately there came out blood and water. And he who saw it has borne witness, and his witness is true; and he knows that he tells the truth, that you also may believe. For these things came to pass that the Scripture might be fulfilled, Not a bone of Him shall you break. And again another Scripture says, They shall look upon Him Whom they have pierced.
    R. Praise be to Thee, O Christ.
    S. By the words of the Gospel may our sins be blotted out.
    But one thing is necessary. Mary hath chosen the best part, which shall not be taken away from her.

  • A Homily by St. Bonaventure the Bishop
    Book of the Tree of Life, num. 30
     
    In order that the Church might be taken out of the side of Christ, in his deep sleep on the Cross, and that the Scripture might be fulfilled which saith: They shall look on him whom they pierced: it was divinely ordained that one of the soldiers should pierce his sacred side with a spear, and open it. Then forthwith there came flowing out blood and water, which was the price of our salvation, pouring forth from its mountain-source, in sooth, from the secret places of his Heart, to give power to the Sacraments of the Church, to bestow the life of grace, and to be as a saving drink of living waters, flowing up to life eternal for those who were already quickened in Christ. Arise, then, O soul beloved of Christ. Cease not thy vigilance, place there thy lips, and drink the waters from the fount of salvation.

    Because we are now come to the sweet Heart of Jesus, and because it is good for us to be here, let us not too soon turn away therefrom. O how good and joyful a thing it is to dwell in this Heart. What a good treasure, what a precious pearl, is thy Heart, O most excellent Jesu, which we have found hidden in the pit which hath been dug in this field, namely, in thy body. Who would cast away such a pearl? Nay, rather, for this same I would give all my pearls. I will sell all my thoughts and affections, and buy the same for myself, turning all my thoughts to the Heart of the good Jesus, and without fail it will support me. Therefore, o most sweet Jesu, finding this Heart that is thine and mine, I will pray to thee, my God: admit my prayers into the shrine of hearkening: and draw me even more altogether into thy Heart.
    V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
    R. Thanks be to God.

  • Prayer {from the Proper of the season}
    V. O Lord, hear my prayer.
    R. And let my cry come unto thee.

    Let us pray.
     
    O God, who hast suffered the Heart of thy Son to be wounded by our sins, and in that very Heart hast bestowed on us the abundant riches of thy love: grant that the devout homage of our hearts, which we render unto him, may of thy mercy be deemed a recompence acceptable in thy sight.
    Through the same Jesus Christ, thy Son, Our Lord, Who liveth and reigneth with thee in the unity of the Holy Ghost, God, world without end.
    R. Amen.
