St. Peters Chair at Antioch[Commemoration]



After our first brave efforts of Lent, our natural inclinations tend to reassert themselves. Temptations may increase their strength or their frequency. Hence the danger of discouragement and of slackening in the observance of generous lenten resolutions. It is the critical hour, in which temptation may surprise us, turn our thoughts inward upon personal problems, and make us forget the sufferings of other men. Brother to all men, Jesus showed that temptation can be a way of redeeming souls–our own and those of others. “In that He Himself has suffered and has been tempted, He is able to help those who are tempted” (Heb. 2:18)

INTROIT Ps. 90:15-16

He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him, I will deliver him and glorify him with length of days.
Ps. 90:1. He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High shall abide in the protection of the God of heaven.
V. Glory be . . .


O God, each year You purify the Church through the lenten observance. May the good works of Your Church obtain for us the grace we ask for through our self-denial. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son, who lives and rules with You in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God forever and ever.


This feast commemorates the seven years during which Pope Peter ruled the Church from Antioch before he went to Rome. Since the majority of the Jews had rejected Christianity, Peter left Jerusalem and founded the see of Antioch among the Gentiles. In that large Eastern city, Christianity took deep root, and it was there that the faithful were first called by the name of Christians. After seven years the Vicar of Christ transferred his see to Rome, the very center of the ancient world, so that from it the messengers of salvation might radiate to the uttermost ends of the earth.

O God, You have entrusted the keys of the kingdom of heaven to Your blessed apostle Peter and have given him the power of bishop to bind or to loose. May his intercession free us from the slavery of sin.

Commemoration of SAINT PAULO God, you have instructed many nations through the preaching of the blessed apostle Paul. Let the power of his intercession with You help us who venerate his memory this day. Through our Lord . . .

EPISTLE II Cor. 6:1-10

Brethren: We do exhort you that you receive not the grace of God in vain. For he saith: In an accepted time have I heard thee and in the day of salvation have I helped thee. Behold, now is the acceptable time: behold, now is the day of salvation. Giving no offense to any man, that our ministry be not blamed. But in all things let us exhibit ourselves as the ministers of God, in much patience, in tribulation, in necessities, in distresses, In stripes, in prisons, in seditions, in labours, in watchings, in fastings, In chastity, in knowledge, in longsuffering, in sweetness, in the Holy Ghost, in charity unfeigned, In the word of truth, in the power of God: by the armour of justice on the right hand and on the left: By honour and dishonour: by evil report and good report: as deceivers and yet true: as unknown and yet known: As dying and behold we live: as chastised and not killed: As sorrowful, yet always rejoicing: as needy, yet enriching many: as having nothing and possessing all things.

GRADUAL Ps. 90:11-12

God has given his angels charge over you, that they guard you in all your ways.
V. Upon their hands they shall bear you up, lest you dash your foot against a stone.

TRACT Ps. 90:1-7; 11-16

He who dwells inm the shelter of the Most High shall abide in the protection of the God of heaven. 
. He shall say to the Lord, “You are my support and my refuge; my God, in You I trust.”
V. For he hath delivered me from the snare of the hunters: and from the sharp word.
V. He will overshadow thee with his shoulders: and under his wings thou shalt trust.
V. His truth shall compass thee with a shield: thou shalt not be afraid of the terror of the night.
V. Of the arrow that flieth in the day, of the business that walketh about in the dark: of invasion, or of the noonday devil.
V. A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand: but it shall not come nigh thee.
V. For he hath given his angels charge over thee; to keep thee in all thy ways.
V. In their hands they shall bear thee up: lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.
V. Thou shalt walk upon the asp and the basilisk: and thou shalt trample under foot the lion and the dragon.
V. Because he hoped in me I will deliver him: I will protect him because he hath known my name. 
. He shall cry to me, and I will hear him: I am with him in tribulation,
V. I will deliver him, and I will glorify him. I will fill him with length of days; and I will shew him my salvation.

GOSPEL Matt. 4:1-11

At that time, Jesus was led by the spirit into the desert, to be tempted by the devil. And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights, afterwards he was hungry. And the tempter coming said to him: “If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread.” Who answered and said: “It is written, Not in bread alone doth man live, but in every word that proceedeth from themouth of God.”

Then the devil took him up into the holy city, and set him upon the pinnacle of the temple, And said to him: “If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down, for it is written: That he hath given his angels charge over thee, and in their hands shall they bear thee up, lest perhaps thou dash thy foot against a stone.”

Jesus said to him: “It is written again: Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.”

Again the devil took him up into a very high mountain, and shewed him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them, And said to him: “All these will I give thee, if falling down thou wilt adore me.” Then Jesus saith to him: “Begone, Satan: for it is written: The Lord thy God shalt thou adore, and him only shalt thou serve.”

Then the devil left him; and behold angels came and ministered to him.


The Lord will cover you with His shoulders, and under His wings you shall find refuge. His truth shall surround you with a shield.


O Lord, we solemnly offer You our sacrifice at the beginning of Lent, and pray that by observing abstinence we may also learn to avoid sinful pleasures. Through our Lord . . .

Commemoration of SAINT PETER’S CHAIR AT ANTIOCHO Lord, we offer You the prayers and sacrifice of Your Church through the intercession of Your apostle Peter. May this Mass, which we celebrate in his honor, win pardon for us.

Commemoration of SAINT PAUL
O Lord, sanctify the offerings of Your people through the intercession of the blessed apostle Paul. The sacrifice we offer is already acceptable to You because You instituted it; may it become even more pleasing to You through the prayers of Your saint. Through our Lord . . .


The Lord will cover you with His shoulders, and under His wings you shall find refuge. His truth shall surround you with a shield.


May the worthy reception of the Blessed Sacrament give us new strength, O Lord. May it cleanse us from our old selves and bring us closer to our salvation. Through our Lord . . .

 Commemoration of SAINT PETER’S CHAIR AT ANTIOCHMay our offering bring us happiness, O Lord. We praise You for the wondrous things You accomplished through Your apostle Peter and ask forgiveness through his intercession.

The Cross Disposes the soul to Patience

V2 – 5.16.99 – “The Cross Disposes the soul to Patience.  The Cross Opens Heaven, and Unites Heaven and earth together – that is, God and the soul.  The Virtue of the Cross is Powerful, and when It enters into a soul, It has the Virtue of removing the rust of all earthly things.  Not only this, but It causes her boredom, bother and contempt for the things of the earth, giving her, instead, the Flavor, the Enjoyment, of Celestial Things.  However, few are those who recognize the Virtue of the Cross; therefore they despise It.”

The Cross allows one to distinguish the reprobates from the predestined

V1 – 9.14.99 – “My beloved, the Cross allows one to distinguish the reprobates from the predestined.  Just as, on the Day of Judgment, the Good shall rejoice upon seeing the Cross, so even now it can be seen whether one shall be saved or lost.  If, as the Cross presents Itself to the soul, she Embraces It, Carries It with Resignation, with Patience, and she Kisses and Thanks that Hand that is sending It – here is the sign that she is saved.  If, on the contrary, as the Cross is presented to her, she gets irritated, despises it, and even reaches the point of offending Me – you can say that that’s a sign that the soul is heading on the way to hell.  So will the reprobates do on the Day of Judgment:  upon seeing the Cross, they shall grieve and curse.  The Cross tells everything; the Cross is a Book that, without deception and in clear notes, tells you and allows you to distinguish the Saint from the sinner, the Perfect from the imperfect, the Fervent from the lukewarm.  The Cross Communicates Such Light to the soul that, even now, It allows one to distinguish not only the Good from the evil, but also those who are to be more or less Glorious in Heaven – those who are to occupy a Higher or a lower place.  All other Virtues remain humble and reverent before the Virtue of the Cross, and Grafting themselves to It, they receive Greater Glory and Splendor.”

Do you want to be Filled with Immense Riches – for all Eternity

V1 – 9.14.99 -Jesus continued:  “Do you want to be Filled with Immense Riches – not for a short time, but for all Eternity?  Well then, the Cross shall Administer to you all Kinds of Riches – from the littlest pennies, that are the small Crosses, up to the Greatest Amounts, that are the Heavier Crosses.  Yet, men are so greedy to earn a temporal nickel, that they will soon have to leave, but do not give a thought to earning one Eternal penny.  And when I, having compassion for them, in seeing their carelessness for all that regards Eternity, kindly offer them the opportunity – instead of Cherishing it, they get angry and offend Me.  What human madness – it seems that they understand it upside down.  My beloved, in the Cross are all the Triumphs, all the Victories, and the Greatest Gains.  As for you, you must have no other aim than the Cross, and this shall be enough for you, in everything.  Today I want to make you content; that Cross that until now has not been enough to lay you on and Crucify you completely, is the Cross that you have carried up to now.  But since I have to Crucify you completely, you need Me to let Descend New Crosses upon you.  So, the Cross you have had until now, I shall bring to Heaven, to show it to the whole Celestial Court as Pledge of your Love, and I shall make another one, larger, Descend from Heaven, to be able to satisfy the Ardent Desires that I have upon you.”

Jesus: Do you want to be beautiful?

V1 – 9.14.99 – One morning – it was the day of the Exaltation of the Cross – my Sweet Jesus transported me to the Holy sites; and first, He told me many things about the Virtue of the Cross.  I don’t remember everything – just a few things:  “My beloved, do you want to be Beautiful?  The Cross shall give you the Most Beautiful Features that can possibly be found, both in Heaven and on earth; So Much So, as to Enamor God, Who contains all Beauties within Himself.”
