Epiphany prayer after Gospel reading
« on: January 06, 2019, 08:27:04 PM »
Today Father solemnly recited a prayer in Latin after Gospel reading. Could someone tell me what is the name of this prayer.
"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

Probably the Publication of Movable Feasts for the year (a.k.a. the Noveritis). It's found in the Pontificale Romanum, and used to be required in Cathedrals and other major churches, optional in parishes/smaller churches. Ideally it should be sung by the highest ranking Deacon, who would not participate as a Sacred Minister in the Mass, and would leave his place in choir during the Gradual to go vest in surplice and cope, then emerge to sing the Noveritis immediately after the Gospel.

As it's becoming increasingly popular again, it usually just falls on the celebrant of the Mass to sing it, rather than the luxury of having an extra Deacon available.

The chant, and English translation, for this year's version are on NLM: http://www.newliturgicalmovement.org/2019/01/special-chants-for-epiphany-2019.html#.XDKsGXKYW_4
"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

Der Polka nailed it. It's the Noveritis: the proclamation of the date of Easter and other moveable feasts. I sang it last year. A bit less optimal as a non-deacon (I'm an instituted acolyte), but it was that or nothing.
