Commemoration Pope Telesphorus (collects from the missal)
« on: January 05, 2019, 09:16:24 PM »
Does anybody know why the collect for Commemoration Pope Telesphorus has been changed in 1962 or perhaps earlier missals from:

O God, who by the yearly solemnity of blessed Telesphorus, thy Martyr and Bishop, rejoicest the hearts of the faithful; mercifully grant that we who celebrate his martyrdom may enjoy his protection.
Eternal Shepherd, regard graciously Thy flock, and keep it with an everlasting protection, by the intecession of Telesphorus thy Martyr and Sovereign Pontiff, whom Thou hast constitued Shepherd of the whole Church. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Thy Son, Who with Thee liveth and reigneth in the unity of the Holy Ghost, God, world without end
"These things I have spoken to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you shall have distress: but have confidence, I have overcome the world." John 16:33

It's because in 1942, the SRC issued the Common of One or Many Supreme Pontiffs. Prior to this, the collect for St Telesphorus was taken from the Common of a Martyr Bishop; the later one uses this new, separate common prayer for a Supreme Pontiff Martyr.
"The Modernists pass the same judgment on the most holy Fathers of the Church as they pass on tradition; decreeing, with amazing effrontery that, while personally most worthy of all veneration, they were entirely ignorant of history and criticism, for which they are only excusable on account of the time in which they lived. Finally, the Modernists try in every way to diminish and weaken the authority of the ecclesiastical magisterium itself by sacrilegiously falsifying its origin, character, and rights, and by freely repeating the calumnies of its adversaries."

-- St Pius X, Pascendi Dominici Gregis
