Laetare Sunday: Fourth Sunday of Lent

Source: 1868 A.D. "The Liturgical Year",  Fourth Sunday of Lent, 

p. 332, BThe Very Rev. Dom Prosper Guéranger, Abott of Solesmes

 

In the Collect, the Church acknowledges that her 

Children deserve the penance they are going through;
but she begs that, to-day, the hope of the coming
divine consolations may refresh their spirits. The
full force of the closing word of her prayer, is that
they may breathe awhile.

 

 

COLLECT.

 

Concede, quaesumus, omnipotens Deus;

ut qui ex merito nostrae actionis affligimur,

tuae gratiae consolatione respiremus.

Per Dominum.

 

Grant, we beseech thee, O Almighty God,

that we, who are justly afflicted according to our demerits,

may be relieved by thy comforting grace.

Through, &c.

THE SPIRITUAL COMMUNION

 

By a rescript of November 24. 1922 the Sacred Congregation of Indulgences approved the following formula for a spiritual communion:

 

"O Jesus I turn toward the holy tabernacle where You live hidden for love of me.  I love you, O my God.  I cannot receive you in Holy Communion.  Come nevertheless and visit me with Your grace.  Come spiritually into my heart.  Purify it.  Sanctify it.  Render it like unto Your own.  Amen.

 

Lord, I am not worthy that thou shouldst enter under my roof, but only say the word and my soul shall be healed."

 

An indulgence of 500 days, if thrice repeated.
(129 The Raccolta 1944).
