    May the patronage and tutelage of Saint John the Baptist, whose Nativity occurs with the Fourth Sunday after Pentecost this year (A.D. 2012), avail each and everyone of us unto the ceaseless augmentation of the three theological virtues and the gifts of the Holy Ghost; and, by his intercession, may we attain to an ever-increasing yearning for Our Lord Jesus Christ, particularly in Holy Communion, and true devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary, whom Our Lord chose as the means to sanctify and consecrate the same glorious Prophet as His illustrious Precursor.

  • Here is a commentary upon the Mass for the Vigil of the Nativity of St. John the Baptist, taken from the late Cardinal Schuster's The Sacramentary (Liber Sacramentorum): Historical and Liturgical Notes on the Roman Missal (vol. IV, trans. Arthur Levelis-Marke; New York: Benziger Brothers, 1929).

  • Saint John the Baptist is the titular Patron of the Primatial Cathedral Church of Lyons, France. The Missal proper to the Patriarchal See of Lyons, therefore, has a proper Preface for the Feasts of the same glorious Precursor of Our Lord, which was taken from the Leonine Sacramentary and cited by Cardinal Schuster in his commentary upon the Mass for the Feast of the Nativity of Saint John the Baptist (The Sacramentary (Liber Sacramentorum): Historical and Liturgical Notes on the Roman Missal, vol. IV, pp. 268-69).

    Here is the text, taken from the Missale Romanum in quo antiqui ritus Lugdunenses servatur Apostolicæ Sedis auctoritate recognitum et probatum (Lyons: Typis Emmanuel Vitte, 1956), approved by authority of His Eminence Pierre Marie Cardinal Gerlier, Archbishop of Lyons and Vienna, and Primate of Gaul (29th of June, 1953):







    Here is a loose vernacular translation:


    Quote

    Truly is it worthy and just, becoming and healthful, that we should ever and everywhere make thanksgiving unto Thee, O holy Lord, Father almighty, eternal God:

    And to collaud Thy magnificence in the day of the festivity wherein blessed John hath today arisen; who, not yet having been brought forth, hath perceived the voice of the Mother of the Lord, and, yet enclosed in the womb of [his] mother, hath announced the coming of the Salvation of man in the midst of prophetic joyous leaping: who, being conceived, hath taken away the sterility of [his] mother, and, being born, hath loosened the tongue of [his] father, and, alone amongst all the Prophets who had foretold the Redeemer of the world, hath shown forth Jesus Christ our Lord. Through Whom Thy majesty is praised by the Angels, adored by the Dominations, feared by the trembling Powers: and co-celebrated by the celestial Virtues of heaven and by the beatified Seraphim, united in the midst of rejoicing. With whom we pray that Thou mayest ordain our voices to be admitted, in suppliant confession saying:

    Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God of Sabaoth. The heavens and the earth are replenished with Thy glory. Hosanna in the highest. Blessed is He who cometh in the name of the Lord. Hosanna in the highest.





    Here is the solemn chant for this Preface:
