The Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of Grace
III Class

[Latin Text]

Introit: Psalm xliv: 13, 15, 16

All the rich among the people seek Thy favor. Behind her the virgins of her train are brought to the King. They are borne in to Thee with gladness and joy. [Ps. ibid. 2] My heart overflows with a goodly theme; as I sing my ode to the King. V. Glory be.... All the rich....


God, who didst determine to redeem human nature with grace through the fecundity of the Blessed Virgin Mary; grant, that we, who call her Mother of Grace on earth, may rejoice in the eternal happiness of her friendship in heaven. Through our Lord Jesus Christ....

Of Ss. Primus and Felician, Martyrs

Grant us, we beseech Thee, O Lord, ever to observe worthily the festival of Thy holy martyrs, Primus and Felician, by whose intercession may we experience the gifts of Thy protection.

Epistle: Ecclesiasticus: xxiv: 23-31

A reading from the wisdom books:
As the vine I have brought forth a pleasant odor, and my flowers are the fruit of honor and riches. I am the mother of fair love, and of fear, and of holy hope. In me is all the grace of the way and of the truth, in me is all hope of life and virtue. Come over to me, all you who desire me, and be filled with my fruits. For my spirit is sweet above honey, and my inheritance above honey and the honeycomb. My memory is unto everlasting generations. They who eat me shall yet hunger; and they who drink me shall yet thirst. He who harkens to me shall not be confounded; and they who work by me shall not sin. They who explain me shall have life everlasting.


Virgin Mary, blessed and venerable art thou: without blemish to thy maidenhood, thou didst become the mother of the Savior. O Virgin Mother of God, He whom the whole world cannot contain, being made man, shut Himself up within thy womb.
Alleluja, alleluja. After childbirth thou didst remain a pure Virgin; O Mother of God, intercede for us. Alleluja.

Gospel: Luke i: 26-38

+ The continuation of the Holy Gospel according to Luke:
At that time, the Angel Gabriel was sent from God into a city of Galilee, called Nazareth, unto a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin's name was Mary. And the Angel, having en­tered, said unto her, "Hail full of grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed art thou among women." Who, having heard, was troubled at his saying, and thought within herself what manner of salutation this might be. And the Angel said to her, "Fear not Mary, for thou hast found grace with God. Behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and shalt bring forth a Son, and thou shalt call His name Jesus. He shall be great and shall be called the Son of the most High, and the Lord shall give Him the throne of David His father; and He shall reign in the house of Jacob forever, and of His kingdom there shall be no end." And Mary said unto the Angel, "How shall this be done, because I know not man?" And the Angel answering, said to her, "The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the most High shall overshadow thee. And, therefore, the Holy that shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God. And behold thy cousin Elizabeth; she also hath conceived a son in her old age, and this is the sixth month with her that is called barren; because nothing shall be impossible with God. And Mary said, "Behold the handmaid of the Lord. Be it done to me according to thy word."


Offertory: Luke i: 28, 42

Hail, Mary full of grace, the Lord is with thee; blessed art thou amongst women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb.


Through Thy clemency, O Lord, and by the intercession of blessed Mary ever Virgin, may this offering avail unto our prosperity and peace, now and for evermore.

May the offering be acceptable to Thee, O Lord, which is to be consecrated on the festival of the precious martyrdom, that it may both purify us of our sins and commend to Thee the prayers of Thy servants.

Of the Holy Martyrs:

We beseech Thee, O almighty God, that the solemnity of Thy holy martyrs, Primus and Felician, celebrated with heavenly mysteries, may gain for us the pardon of Thy mercy. Through our Lord.
