Blessed Feast Day of Pope Pius V!

Today, in the 1962 missal, we celebrate the Feast day of H.H Pope Saint Pius V, whom has enforced the observance of the discipline for the Council of Trent, reformed the religious order of the Cistercians, and supported the missionaries of the new world. In His papal bull ‘In Coena Domini’ he proclaimed the traditional practices of the Roman Church and the supremacy of the Holy See over the civil power.

On July 14, 1570, Saint Pius V has released another papal bull titled “Quo Primum” in which he had repeated that no other rite besides the one that was restored by the Council of Trent or older than 200 years of age was to be celebrated, thus the following: “Let all everywhere adopt and observe what has been handed down by the Holy Roman Church, the Mother and Teacher of the other churches, and let Masses not be sung or read according to any other formula than that of this Missal published by Us.”

Pope Saint Pius V is well known as the ‘Pope of the Rosary’ because of the fact that belonged to the Dominican Order and solemnly encouraged that the Rosary be prayed, by the request of Our Lady, in order to defeat the Turks that were invading Europe, later known as “The Battle of Lepanto”, that took place on October 7th, 1571. On May 1,1572, His Holiness had died in Sanctifying Grace and was brought into Eternal Life. He was beatified by Pope Clement X in 1672, and canonized by Pope Clement XI in 1712.

Lesson from the first letter of St Peter the Apostle
1 Pet. 5:1-4, 10-11.
Beloved: I exhort the presbyters among you – I, your fellow presbyter and witness of the sufferings of Christ, the partaker also of the glory that is to be revealed in time to come – tend the flock of God which is among you, governing not under constraint, but willingly, according to God; nor yet for the sake of base gain, but eagerly; nor yet as lording it over you charges, but becoming from the heart a pattern to the flock. And when the Prince of the shepherds appears, you will receive the unfading crown of glory. But the God of all grace, Who has called us unto His eternal glory in Christ Jesus, will Himself, after we have suffered a little while, perfect, strengthen and establish us. To Him is the dominion forever and ever. Amen.

Alleluia, alleluia.
Matt 16:18
 You are Peter, and upon this rock I will build My Church. Alleluia.
Ps 44:17-18
 You shall make them princes through all the land; they shall remember Your name through all generations. Alleluia.

Continuation  of the Holy Gospel according to Matthew
R. Glory be to Thee, O Lord.
Matt. 16:13-19.
At that time, Jesus, having come into the district of Caesarea Philippi, began to ask His disciples, saying, Who do men say the Son of Man is? But they said, Some say, John the Baptist; and others, Elias; and others, Jeremia, or one of the prophets. He said to them, But who do you say that I am? Simon Peter answered and said, You are the Christ, the Son of the living God. Then Jesus answered and said, Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jona, for flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but My Father in heaven. And I say to you, you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build My Church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.

We have offered our gifts to You, O Lord. Let Your light graciously shine upon Your Church, so that this flock may everywhere prosper, and its pastors, under Your guidance, may be truly pleasing to You. Through our Lord . . .

O Lord, govern the Church, which You have been pleased to nourish with Your heavenly food. Guide her by Your powerful direction so that she may enjoy greater freedom and remain unshaken in the fullness of faith. Through our

Lord etc..

Pius V Quo
