Oath Against Modernism

Introit: Ps. lxxxviii: 20-22

I have raised up a chosen man from My people; with My holy oil I have anointed him, that my hand may help him, and my arm strengthen him. [Ps.] The mercies of the Lord I will sing forever; through all generations my tongue shall proclaim Thy faithfulness. Glory be.... I have raised....


O God, Thou didst fill saint Pius, the supreme pontiff, with the wisdom of heaven and the courage of the apostles in order that he might defend the Catholic Faith, and restore all things to Christ. May we follow his teaching and example, and attain to our eternal reward.

Epistle: 1 Thessalonians ii: 2-8

A reading from the First Epistle of Saint Paul to the Thessalonians:
Brethren: We had confidence in our God to preach to you the gospel of God amid much anxiety. For our exhortation was not from error, nor from impure motives, nor from guile. But as approved by God to be entrusted with the gospel, so we speak not as pleasing men, but God, who proves our hearts. For at no time have we used words of flattery, as you know, nor any pretext for avarice, God is witness, nor have we sought glory from men, neither from you nor from others. Although as the apostles of Christ, we could have claimed a position of honor among you, still while in your midst we were as children. As if a nurse were cherishing her own children, so we in our love for you would gladly have im­parted to you not only the gospel of God, but also our own souls; because you had become most dear to us.

Gradual: Ps. xxxix: 10-11

I have declared Thy justice in the vast assembly, and behold, O Lord, as Thou knowest, I did not restrain my lips. I have not hidden Thy justice within my heart, but I have spoken about Thy truth and Thy salvation.
Alleluia, alleluia. Thou pre­parest a banquet before me, Thou anointest my head with oil; my cup is overflowing. Alleluia!

Gospel: John xxi: 15-17
The continuation of the Holy Gospel according to John:

At that time, Jesus said to Simon Peter, "Simon, bar Jona, dost thou love Me more than these do?" He said to Him, "Yes, Lord, thou knowest that I love thee." He said to him, "Feed My lambs." He said to him a second time, "Simon, bar Jona, dost thou love Me?" He said to Him, "Yes, Lord, thou knowest that I love thee." He said to him, "Feed My lambs." A third time He said to him, "Simon, bar Jona, dost thou love Me?" Peter was grieved because He said to him a third time, "Dost thou love me?" And he said to Him, "Lord, Thou knowest all things; Thou knowest that I love Thee." He said to him, "Feed My sheep."

Offertory: Ps. xxxiii: 12

Come, children, hear me, I will teach you the fear of the Lord.


O Lord, graciously accept our sacrifice and grant that we may celebrate these divine mysteries with true devotion and receive them in perfect faith through the intercession of blessed Pope Pius.

Preface of the Apostles

Communion: John vi: 56-57

My Flesh is food indeed, and My Blood is drink indeed. He who eats My Flesh, and drinks My Blood, abides in Me and I in him.


We have been strengthened by the food of Thy heavenly table, O Lord our God. Make us strong in faith and unite us in love of Thee through the intercession of blessed Pope Pius.
