09 JUL (Tuesday):
SAINT AUGUSTINE ZHAO HONG and COMPANIONS,
Martyrs (d. ~1815)
The Martyrs of China, they were imprisoned and died for their faith
and work. Augustine was a soldier who escorted Saint Gabriel
John Tauin du-Fresse to Beijing during his missionary work.
Augustine became a convert to Christianity and a priest, working
in the Sichuan apostolic vicarate.
13 JUL (Saturday):
SAINT HENRY, Holy Roman Emperor (972-1024)
(“Good King”) Henry became Duke of Bavaria upon his father’s
death, and ascended to the throne of Germany in 1002. He was later
crowned King of Pavia, Italy and became Holy Roman Emperor in
1014, the last of the Saxon dynasty of emperors. Henry founded
schools, quelled rebellions, protected the frontiers, worked to establish a stable peace in Europe, and to reform the Church while
respecting its independence.
11 JUL (Thursday):
SAINT BENEDICT, Abbot (480-543)
The “Father of Western Monasticism” was educated in Rome and,
repelled by the vices of the world, decided to live the life of a hermit.
He organized his many followers into 12 monasteries, including
Monte Cassino, which became the
birthplace of Western monasticism.
The rule he wrote for his monks
prescribed common sense, moderate
asceticism, prayer, study, work and
community life under one superior. It
would serve as the model of monastic
life in the West for centuries to come.
HOPELESS AND DESPERATE CASES
Commit your concerns and intentions to St. Jude
Thaddeus. His intercession can produce miracles.
Only believe, and trust in the providence of Our
Lord. Ask His cousin to assist you.

THE HOLY FATHER’S
PRAYER INTENTIONS
From the Holy See
LITURGICAL TERMS YOU NEED TO KNOW
With the new focus on liturgy, it’s time to brush up on our
liturgical vocabulary, so we’ll know how to refer to different
things connected with the Mass. Here are seven terms you may
find helpful to know.
Antiphon
Greek, anti- “opposite” + phonē “voice.” A short text, typically
from Scripture and often used as a refrain said by the congregation
(e.g., during the Responsorial Psalm), though it has other uses in
the liturgy.
Collect
One of the Introductory Rites. It is a prayer that varies depending
on the liturgical day. It follows the Gloria and concludes the
Introductory Rites. The former translation of Mass referred to it

Each month His Holiness asks for general and missionary
prayer intentions.
For July 2013, the Holy Father’s prayer intentions are:
General:
World Youth Day
That World Youth Day in Brazil may encourage all young
Christians to become disciples and missionaries of the Gospel.
Missionary: Asia
That throughout Asia doors may be open to messengers of
the Gospel.
as the “opening prayer,” but its historical name is restored in the
new translation.
Epiclesis
The third part of the Eucharistic Prayer. In it, by means of
particular invocations, the Church implores the power of the Holy
Spirit that the gifts offered by human hands be consecrated. It
follows the Acclamation (Sanctus) and precedes the Institution
Narrative and Consecration.
Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion
A person authorized to distribute Holy Communion, either
for a particular occasion or in a more stable fashion, due to
extraordinary circumstances such as lack of ordinary ministers of
Holy Communion. The ordinary ministers of Holy Communion
are bishops, priests, and deacons. All others are extraordinary.
Note that the term “extraordinary minister of Holy Communion”
is the correct term. Terms such as “extraordinary minister of the
Eucharist,” “eucharistic minister,” and “special minister” are all
incorrect.
Ordinary of the Mass
Those parts of the Mass that do not change based on the liturgical
day. Also called the ordinary. Compare with Proper of the Mass.
Proper of the Mass
Those parts of the Mass that change based on the liturgical day.
Also called the proper or the proper of the day. Compare with
Ordinary of the Mass.
Rubrics
Instructions printed in red in a liturgical book (e.g., the Roman
Missal) that direct the actions of those participating in a liturgical
celebration. Rubrics are typically scattered among the text of the
prayers (which are printed in black).

Everyone is invited to attend our weekly holy hour for priests

Benediction. Especially at this time, we need to lift up our priests
both here in the parish and throughout the world with our prayer.

International and Historical Prayer
(The Hail, Mary)
Aba Ginoong Maria, Napupuno ka ng
grasya. Ang Panginoon ay sumasaiyo.
Bukod kang pinagpala sa babaeng lahat,
at pinagpala naman
ang lyong anak na si Hesus.
Santa Maria, ina ng Diyos, ipanalangin
mo kaming makasalanan, ngayon at
kung kami’y mamamatay.
Amen.
(FILIPINO)
Wees gegroet Maria, vol van genade,
de Heer is met U, Gij zijt de gezegende
onder de vrouwen, en gezegend is
Jesus, de vrucht van Uw schoot.
Heilige Maria, Moeder van God,
bid voor ons zondaars,
nu en in het uur van onze dood.
Amen.
(DUTCH)
Awe, e Maria, e ki ana koe i te kereatia;
Kei a koe te Ariki. E whakapaingia
ana koe I roto i nga wahine, a e
whakapaingia ana hoki a Hehu,
te hua o tou kopu. E Hata Maria,
e te matua wahine o te Atua,
inoi koe mo matou,
mo te hunga hara aianei, a,
a te haroa o to matou matenga.
Amene.
(MAORI)
(aboriginal New Zealand)
The Mass in the “extraordinary form” is celebrated entirely in Latin, but one prayer is an exception. What is
that prayer, and in what language is it recited?
The “Kyrie”, which is recited in Greek.
