1962 Sunday Missal Mass Readings/Propers for the Feast of St. Joseph the Worker


 

Colors:  White
 
INTROIT 
Wisdom 10:17

Wisdom rendered to the just the wages of their labors, and conducted them in a wonderful way: and she was to them for a covert by day, and for the light of stars by night. [P.T. Alleluia, alleluia.] -- (Ps. 126. 1). V.: Glory be to the Father . . . -- Wisdom rendered to the just . . .
 
COLLECT - O God, Creator of all things, Who dost impose on man the law of work; grant in Thy goodness that, by the example and patronage of blessed Joseph, we may both accomplish the work Thou dost command and attain the reward Thou hast promised. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Thy Son, Who liveth and reigneth with Thee in the unity of the Holy Ghost, God, world without end.
 

EPISTLE
Colossians 3: 14-15, 17, 23-24
Brethren: Have charity, which is the bond of perfection. And let the peace of Christ rejoice in your hearts, wherein also you are called in one body: and be ye thankful. All whatsoever you do in word or in work, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, giving thanks to God and the Father by Him. Whatsoever you do, do it from the heart, as to the Lord, and not to men: knowing that you shall receive of the Lord the reward of inheritance. Serve ye the Lord Christ.

Alleluia, alleluia. V.: In whatever tribulation they shall cry to me, I will hear them, and be their protector always. Alleluia. V.: Obtain for us, Joseph, grace to lead an innocent life: and may our life ever be shielded by thy patronage. Alleluia.

 
GRADUAL
Psalms 127: 1-2
Blessed are all they that fear the Lord: that walk in his ways. V.: For thou shalt eat the labours of thy hands: blessed art thou, and it shall be well with thee.

Alleluia, alleluia. Obtain for us, Joseph, grace to lead an innocent life: and may our life ever be shielded by thy patronage. Alleluia.
 
TRACT
Psalms 111: 1-3

Blessed is the man that feareth the Lord: he shall delight exceedingly in his commandments.
V.: His seed shall be mighty upon earth: the generation of the righteous shall be blessed.
V.: Glory and wealth shall be in his house: and his justice remaineth for ever and ever.

 

GOSPEL
Matthew 13: 54-58

At that time: Jesus coming into His country, He taught them in their synagogues, so that they wondered and said: How came this Man by this wisdom and miracles? Is not this the carpenter's Son? Is not His mother called Mary, and His brethren James, and Joseph, and Simon, and Jude: and His sisters, are they not all with us? Whence therefore hath He all these things? And they were scandalized in His regard. But Jesus said to them: A prophet is not without honour, save in his own country, and in his own house. And He wrought not many miracles there, because of their unbelief.


 
OFFERTORY
Psalms 87: 17

Let the brightness of the Lord our God be upon us: and direct Thou the works of our hands over us; yea, the work of our hands do Thou direct.
 
SECRET - May these gifts, the work of our hands, that we offer Thee in sacrifice, O Lord, become for us, by the intercession of blessed Joseph, a pledge of unity and peace. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Thy Son, who with Thee liveth and reigneth in the unity of the Holy Ghost, God, world without end. . .
 
PREFACE (Preface of Saint Josehp) - It it truly meet and just, right and for our salvation, that we should at all times and in all places, give thanks unto Thee, O holy Lord, Father almighty, everlasting God: and that we should magnify with due praises, bless and proclaim Thee on the solemnity of blessed Joseph; who, being a just man, was given by Thee as a Spouse to the Virgin Mother of God, and, as a faithful and prudent servant was set over Thy Family, that, with fatherly care, he might guard Thine only-begotten Son, conceived by the overshadowing of the Holy Ghost, even Jesus Christ, our Lord. Through whom the Angels praise Thy Majesty, the Dominations worship it, and the Powers stand in awe. The heavens and the heavenly hosts together with the blessed Seraphim in triumphant chorus unite to celebrate it. Together with them we entreat Thee that Thou mayest bid our voices also to be admitted, while we say with lowly praise:
 
COMMUNION
Matthew 13: 54, 55
How came this Man by this wisdom and miracles? Is not this the carpenter's Son? Is not His mother called Mary? [P.T. Alleluia.]
 
POST COMMUNION - May these holy mysteries which we have received, O Lord, by the intercession of blessed Joseph, supply what is wanting in our works, and assure us of Thy rewards. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Thy Son, Who liveth and reigneth with Thee in the unity of the Holy Ghost, God, world without end.

Would be nice if I knew where my own posts were. Thanks for taking the time to figure it out. I put a page on the server at that url with these propers for now just so the link here works.

Notice the link that didn't work goes to "http://www.freerepublic.com/^http://www.angelqueen.org/missal/23_5th_sun_after_easter.shtml. Shows the extent to which I became mixed up due to the calendar change. I had a whole other post going.

Do you know if there are alternate readings for today?

I heard the guy behind me at Church mention that he thought that there were three alternatives. And Fr. didn't read the same readings that you have posted, which are the same as in my readings for the day pamphlet.

You're probably asking the wrong guy, as I was very confused today before posting this.

From what I understand, the feast for today is St. Joseph the Worker - it supercedes the normal 5th Sunday of Easter which had to do with Andrew and two other apostles. I'm not sure if this is a permanent change or just for 2005, but it seems as if this was the Mass given to everyone that I've heard from.

I realized today how little I understand about the liturgical calendar. I don't know if Mike can shed any light on this or not, but I've pinged him.

Well, here's my understanding, and if the freeper who told me once he knows quite a bit about the calendar, and whose name I've forgotten, chimes in, I'll appreciate it. (I learned from him not to go by the Fr Lasance. I think he said that in 1962, first, second, etc, feasts were abolished, but I wouldn't be surprised if I'm 100% wrong about that.)

Pius XII established the May 1 Feast of St Joseph the Worker in the middle 1950s, and made it a first class feast. The Fifth Sunday After Easter is a second class feast, so St Joe takes precedence, but won't take precedence again until May 1 happens to be the Fifth Sunday After Easter.

I don't know if the simplification of things in 1962 changed any of this. In the Mass I attended today, Father said the St Joe Mass.

This is only slightly on topic, but today at our chapel we had Fr. Laisney give a lecture on the Shroud of Turin, with life size photographic images. It was excellent. To all Catholics who attend mass at SSPX chapels, make sure you go if you can. His schedule is in April's Regina Coeli report.

Mike, you are correct...

Yesterday was a first class feast which took precedence over a Second Class Sunday. The next time May 1st. happens on Sunday, it will be the same occurrence, except not necessarily on the fifth Sunday after Easter, due to the variation of the date of Easter.

The simplification of the rubrics had no effect in this case. It was simply the issue of Pius XII establishing a new feast in the calendar, which happens to be ranked first class.

Some further nuances...
If May 1st. is Ascension Thursday, St. Joseph the Worker is transferred to May 2nd.

If May 1st. is Easter Saturday or Low Sunday (first class Sunday), St. Joseph the Worker is transferred to the Monday, May 2nd. or 3rd.

Here is one reason why you can't go by the Fr. Lasance Missal or most Missals for that matter:

Prior to 1961, Sundays and Feasts were ranked as follows:
Double 1st. Class
Double 2nd. Class
Greater Double
Double
Semidouble (this was actually abolished in 1955)
Simple

Effective Jan 1, 1961, Pope John XXIII abolished the above and replaced it with:
First Class
Second Class
Third Class
Fourth Class

Furthemore, all but three Octaves and most Vigils were suppressed in 1955. Hence, the Octave of the Ascension no longer exists, for example. So, next Sunday is properly called the Sunday AFTER the Ascension, no longer the Sunday in the Octave of the Ascension.

Thanks very much. Were you the freeper who corrected me about ranking feasts a month or two ago?

Thanks for clearing that up guys, I was concerned why there would be a different Mass. I don't want to be second guessing Priests again.

"I think he said that in 1962, first, second, etc, feasts were abolished, but I wouldn't be surprised if I'm 100% wrong about that."

LOL I understood that a first class would supercede any lesser ranking.

I'm not sure if that's correct. I believe I've seen second class feasts performed more than once.... but I woulnd't be sure if I were 100% wrong about that either.

See what I wrote above. The only thing that was abolished was the term "Double"...hence what used to be a "Double of the Second Class" became simply "Second Class". Some specific feasts were abolished as I have listed below. Most Missals (because they are dated before 1960), still include them.

Today, May 3rd. was the Feast of the Finding of the True Cross. In the 1962 Missal this feast no longer exists, but the Mass of this Feast may be said today as a Votive Mass.

Jan. 18th. - Chair of St. Peter in Rome - abolished. And, then the Chair of St. Peter on Feb. 22nd. became the only such feast on the calendar.

Aug. 1st. - St. Peter's Chains - abolished. Aug. 3rd. - Finding of St. Stephen - abolished.
