The Immaculate Conception

An Extract from 
AD DIEM ILLUM LAETISSIMUM
ENCYCLICAL OF POPE PIUS X
ON THE IMMACULATE CONCEPTION
Read in entire by clicking large image at bottom of page.


But lest it be thought that We have lost sight of Our subject, which is the Immaculate Conception, what great and effectual succour will be found in it for the preservation and right development of those same virtues. What truly is the point of departure of the enemies of religion for the sowing of the great and serious errors by which the faith of so many is shaken? They begin by denying that man has fallen by sin and been cast down from his former position. Hence they regard as mere fables original sin and the evils that were its consequence. Humanity vitiated in its source vitiated in its turn the whole race of man; and thus was evil introduced amongst men and the necessity for a Redeemer involved. All this rejected it is easy to understand that no place is left for Christ, for the Church, for grace or for anything that is above and beyond nature; in one word the whole edifice of faith is shaken from top to bottom. But let people believe and confess that the Virgin Mary has been from the first moment of her conception preserved from all stain; and it is straightway necessary that they should admit both original sin and the rehabilitation of the human race by Jesus Christ, the Gospel, and the Church and the law of suffering. By virtue of this Rationalism and Materialism is torn up by the roots and destroyed, and there remains to Christian wisdom the glory of having to guard and protect the truth. It is moreover a vice common to the enemies of the faith of our time especially that they repudiate and proclaim the necessity of repudiating all respect and obedience for the authority of the Church, and even of any human power, in the idea that it will thus be more easy to make an end of faith. Here we have the origin of Anarchism, than which nothing is more pernicious and pestilent to the order of things whether natural or supernatural. Now this plague, which is equally fatal to society at large and to Christianity, finds its ruin in the dogma of the Immaculate Conception by the obligation which it imposes of recognizing in the Church a power before which not only has the will to bow, but the intelligence to subject itself. It is from a subjection of the reason of this sort that Christian people sing thus the praise of the Mother of God: "Thou art all fair, O Mary, and the stain of original sin is not in thee." (Mass of Immac. Concep.) And thus once again is justified what the Church attributes to this august Virgin that she has exterminated all heresies in the world.

A Blessed Pope Teaches.
Blessed Pope Pius IX

Nothing is greater or holier than the unbloody sacrifice of the Mass, in which the body and blood of Christ are offered to God for the salvation of all. Holy Mother the Church has always been careful and diligent in order that the Mass be celebrated by priests with clean and pure hearts. It should be celebrated with the proper splendor of sacred ceremonies and rites so that the greatness of this mystery will shine forth all the more even from external appearances. This will also arouse the faithful to the contemplation of divine things hidden in such an admirable and venerable sacrifice. And with like solicitude and devotion, the same most holy Mother has never ceased to urge, exhort, and influence her faithful sons to frequently attend this divine sacrifice with due piety, veneration and devotion. She teaches that they must at all cost be present at it on all holy days of obligation, with their minds and eyes religiously intent on that from which the divine mercy and an abundance of all good things might be acquired.

Oh Holy Mary ever Virgin and conceived without sin; Pray for us who have recourse to thee.

                          Christ The King

ENCYCLICAL OF POPE PIUS XI
ON THE FEAST OF CHRIST THE KING
TO OUR VENERABLE BRETHREN THE PATRIARCHS, PRIMATES,
ARCHBISHOPS, BISHOPS, AND OTHER ORDINARIES
IN PEACE AND COMMUNION WITH THE APOSTOLIC SEE.



Venerable Brethren, Greeting and the Apostolic Benediction.
In the first Encyclical Letter which We addressed at the beginning of Our Pontificate to the Bishops of the universal Church, We referred to the chief causes of the difficulties under which mankind was laboring. And We remember saying that these manifold evils in the world were due to the fact that the majority of men had thrust Jesus Christ and his holy law out of their lives; that these had no place either in private affairs or in politics: and we said further, that as long as individuals and states refused to submit to the rule of our Savior, there would be no really hopeful prospect of a lasting peace among nations. Men must look for the peace of Christ in the Kingdom of Christ; and that We promised to do as far as lay in Our power. In the Kingdom of Christ, that is, it seemed to Us that peace could not be more effectually restored nor fixed upon a firmer basis than through the restoration of the Empire of Our Lord. We were led in the meantime to indulge the hope of a brighter future at the sight of a more widespread and keener interest evinced in Christ and his Church, the one Source of Salvation, a sign that men who had formerly spurned the rule of our Redeemer and had exiled themselves from his kingdom were preparing, and even hastening, to return to the duty of obedience.

September 29th
The Dedication of
St. Michael The Archangel
O Jesu! life-spring of the soul!
The Father`s power and glory bright!
Thee with the angels we extol;
From thee they draw their life and light.
Thy thousand thousand  hosts are spread
Embattled o`er the azure sky;
But Michael bears thy standard dread,
And lifts the mighty Cross on high.
He, in that sign, the rebel powers
Did, with their dragon prince, expel;
And hurled them from the heavens` high towers,
Down, like a thunderbolt, to hell.
Grant us, with Michael, still, O Lord,
Against the prince of pride to fight;
So may a crown be our reward,
Before the Lamb`s pure throne of light.
To God the Father praise be done.
Who hath redeemed us through his Son;
Anoints us by the Holy Ghost,
And guards us by the Angel-host.
Amen

                      The Final Gauge

                                 If THAT for which we labor here
                                Be worthy our endeavor,
                                The final gauge we need not fear,
                                Since Heaven fails us never!
                                Though wrong may seem to vanquish right;
                                Though truth be crushed and hid from sight;
                                Fear not the outcome of the fight!--
                                God`s laws will stand forever!
                              The end we cannot always see;
                              Nor can we understand
                              That what man deems futility,
                              God may have wisely planned!
                              Trust then in Him, and, come what may,
                              Press boldly onward day by day;--
                              Knowing that all things, now and aye,
                                Are in His holy hand!

Sálve Regina, Máter misericórdiae, vita, dulcédo, et spes nóstra, sálve. Ad te clamámus, éxsules filii Evae. Ad te suspirámus geméntes et fientes in hac lacrymárum valle. Eia ergo, advocáta nóstra, illos tuos misericórdes óculos ad nos convérte. Et Jésum, benedíctum frúctum véntris tui, nóbis, post hoc exilium osténde. O clémens, o pía, o dúlcis Virgo María. Ora pro nóbis, Sáncta Déi Génitrix. Ut dígni efficiámur promissiónibus Christi.

Orémus.
Deus, refúgium nóstrum et vírtus, pópulum ad te clamántem propítius réspice; et intercedénte gloriósa, et immaculáta Virgine Dei Genitríce María, cum beáto Joseph, ejus Spónso, ac beátis Apóstolis tuis Petro et Paulo, et ómnibus Sánctis, quas pro conversióne peccatórum, pro libertáte et exaltatióne sanctae Matris Ecclésiae, preces effúndimus, miséricors et benígnus exáudi. Per eúndum Chrístum Dóminum nostrum. Amen.
Hail, Holy Queen, Mother of Mercy, our life, our sweetness, and our hope. To thee to we cry, poor banished children of Eve. To thee do we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in this valley of tears. Turn, then, most gracious advocate, thine eyes of mercy toward us, and after this exile, show unto us the blessed Fruit of thy womb, Jesus. O clement, O pious, O sweet Virgin Mary. Pray for us, O holy Mother of God. That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.

Let us pray.
O God, our refuge and our strength, look down with mercy upon the people who cry to Thee; and by the intercession of the glorious and immaculate Virgin Mary, Mother of God, of Saint Joseph her spouse, of the blessed Apostles Peter and Paul, and of all the Saints, in Thy mercy and goodness hear our prayers for the conversion of sinners, and for the liberty and exaltation of the Holy Mother the Church. Through the same Christ Our Lord. Amen.

Prayer to St. Michael the Archangel


Sáncte Micháel Archángele, defénde nos in proélio; contra nequítiam et insídias diáboli esto praesídium. Impéret illi Deus, súpplices deprecámur: tuque, Prínceps milítiae caeléstis, Sátanam aliósque spíritus malígnos, qui ad perditiónem animárum pervagántur in mundo, divína virtúte in inférnum detrúde.

 The Leonine Prayers were prescribed by Pope Leo XIII to be said by the priest and congregation after Low Mass. The original intention was the defense of the temporal sovereignty of the Holy See. In 1904, St. Pius X granted permission to add at the conclusion of the Leonine Prayers a threefold invocation, "Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy on us.” In 1929, Pius XI ordered that the prayers should be said for conversion of Russia, alluding to the request of Our Lady in Fatima. They are customarily said kneeling.

The Last Gospel: Read at the end of every Traditional Latin Mass


In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by Him: and without Him was made nothing that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the Light shineth in darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it. There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. This man came for a witness, to give testimony of the Light, that all men might believe through Him. He was not the Light, but was to give testimony of the Light. That was the true Light, which enlighteneth every man that cometh into this world. He was in the world, and the world was made by Him, and the world knew Him not.

He came unto His own, and His own received Him not. But as many as received Him, He gave them power to be made the sons of God, to them that believe in His name. Who are born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
(here all kneel) AND THE WORD WAS MADE FLESH AND DWELT AMONG US, and we saw His glory, the glory as it were of the Only Begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth."
Thanks be to God.

Latin Version here



"In principio erat Verbum et Verbum erat apud Deum et Deus erat Verbum. Hoc erat in principio apud Deum. Omnia per Ipsum facta sunt, et sine Ipso factum est nihil quod factum est. In Ipso vita erat, et vita erat Lux hominum. Et Lux in tenebris lucet et tenebrae eam non comprehenderunt
Fuit homo missus a Deo cui nomen erat Iohannes. Hic venit in testimonium ut testimonium perhiberet de lumine ut omnes crederent per Illum. Non erat ille lux, sed ut testimonium perhiberet de lumine. Erat lux vera quae illuminat omnem hominem venientem in mundum. In mundo erat, et mundus per ipsum factus est, et mundus eum non cognovit.

In propria venit et sui eum non receperunt. Quotquot autem receperunt eum dedit eis potestatem filios Dei, fieri his qui credunt in nomine Eius. Qui non ex sanguinibus, neque ex voluntate carnis, neque ex voluntate viri, sed ex Deo nati sunt.
(All kneel at the following) ET VERBUM CARO FACTUM EST, et habitavit in nobis, et vidimus gloriam eius, gloriam quasi unigeniti a Patre, plenum gratiae et veritatis.
Deo gratias.
