Good King(& Saint) Wenceslas

30 Sep

Monday was a Liturgical Doubleheader in Two Versions of The Holy Sacrifice Of The Mass.

Now on the Novus Ordo Mass Calendar, two Saints are Commemorated on this day. San Lorenzo Ruiz, Patron Saint of The Philippines has his feast on September 28th. At Our Lady Queen Of Martyrs RC Church in Forest Hills, Queens, the Celebration occurred at the 1PM Mass on Sunday, September 27th.
St. Wencheslas is also commemorated on September 28th. So at OLQM’s 8:00AM Mass, Fr Antonin Kocurek offered the 8:00AM in honour of his country’s Patron Saint(Czech Republic).
At 6PM at Holy Innocents RC Church in Midtown Manhattan, The Mass was offered in Latin in Honour of St. Wencheslas, as this Feast is on the Traditional Latin Mass Calendar.
Wencheslas was murdered by his Brother.
The Vestment Color was Red at the Tridentine Latin Mass, in Honor of a Martyr.
At the Conclusion of that Mass, “Good King Wencheslas” was sung.
Christmas is a little under 90 Days away. By celebration of this Saint, we are reminded of December 25th.

Deo Gratias!


Kyrie Elaison
