This sermon was taken from the Christmas “Puer Natus” propers, but it is released today on the Christmas Octave.
In the old calendar, when Christmas falls on a Monday, the fourth Sunday of Advent is subsumed into the Christmas Vigil Mass, meaning the priest in purple. This will probably be my only sermon posted for Christmas, due to a short one in tomorrow’s Missa Cantata.
|VENI veni, Emmanuel
captivum solve Israel,
qui gemit in exsilio,
privatus Dei Filio.
R: Gaude! Gaude! Emmanuel,
nascetur pro te Israel!
|O COME, O come, Emmanuel,
and ransom captive Israel,
that morns in lonely exile here
until the Son of God appear.
R: Rejoice! Rejoice! O Israel,
to thee shall come Emmanuel!
|Veni, O Sapientia,
quae hic disponis omnia,
veni, viam prudentiae
ut doceas et gloriae. R.
|O come, Thou Wisdom, from on high,
and order all things far and nigh;
to us the path of knowledge show,
and teach us in her ways to go. R.
|Veni, veni, Adonai,
qui populo in Sinai
legem dedisti vertice
in maiestate gloriae. R.
|O come, o come, Thou Lord of might,
who to thy tribes on Sinai’s height
in ancient times did give the law,
in cloud, and majesty, and awe. R.
|Veni, O Iesse virgula,
ex hostis tuos ungula,
de specu tuos tartari
educ et antro barathri. R.
|O come, Thou Rod of Jesse’s stem,
from ev’ry foe deliver them
that trust Thy mighty power to save,
and give them vict’ry o’er the grave. R.
|Veni, Clavis Davidica,
regna reclude caelica,
fac iter tutum superum,
et claude vias inferum. R.
|O come, Thou Key of David, come,
and open wide our heav’nly home,
make safe the way that leads on high,
that we no more have cause to sigh. R.
|Veni, veni O Oriens,
solare nos adveniens,
noctis depelle nebulas,
dirasque mortis tenebras. R.
|O come, Thou Dayspring from on high,
and cheer us by thy drawing nigh;
disperse the gloomy clouds of night
and death’s dark shadow put to flight. R.
|Veni, veni, Rex Gentium,
veni, Redemptor omnium,
ut salvas tuos famulos
peccati sibi conscios. R.
|O come, Desire of the nations, bind
in one the hearts of all mankind;
bid every strife and quarrel cease
and fill the world with heaven’s peace. R.
From the consecration to the Leonine prayers.
Family spiritual warfare that is necessary before the peace of heaven.
This class goes from the Creed to the Hanc Igitur.
The people that John the Baptist preached to were very similar to the people of today.
This class was originally “Traditional Latin Mass 4” but it [happily] got derailed into a Question and Answer regarding unity within the Church. Mass podclasses will continue next week.
How to understand the importance of our short time on earth before the return of Jesus Christ, regardless of His timing on the Final Judgment.
The six links of this podclass are:
- Conversation With Christ to learn how to meditate as St. Teresa of Avila and St. Ignatius of Loyola.
- Moveable Feasts pdf of the Traditional Calendar from 2000 to 2050
- YouTube Traditional Latin Catholic Mass: Easter Sunday by Fulton Sheen

This sermon is about how to get your kids to heaven in 15 minutes a day. The featured image is Holy Ghost parish in downtown Denver. Some families of this parish used the Baltimore Catechism in the 1980s, and it paid off.
