Lord, my allotted portion and my cup,
You have made my destiny secure.
Pleasant places were measured out for me;
Fair to me indeed is my inheritance. Psalm 16:5-6

Gloria is said.


Almighty and merciful God,
who gave us an ardent witness
of love for you and for our neighbor
in Saint Gaspar del Bufalo, priest and
dedicated missionary of the Precious Blood of Christ;
through his intercession,
listen to the voice of the blood of your Son
which daily rises to you from the earth
in the painful cry of suffering humanity.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.

All the ends of the earth will see the salvation of our God.

A reading from the Book of the Prophet Isaiah

How beautiful upon the mountains
are the feet of him who brings glad tidings,
announcing peace, bearing good news, announcing salvation,
and saying to Zion,
”Your God is King!”

Hark! Your sentinels raise a cry,
together they shout for joy,
for they see directly, before their eyes,
the LORD restoring Zion.
Break out together in song,
O ruins of Jerusalem!
For the LORD comforts his people,
he redeems Jerusalem.
The LORD has bared his holy arm
in the sight of all the nations;
all the ends of the earth will behold
the salvation of our God.

The word of the Lord.

Psalm 96;1-3, 7-8a, 10

R. Your salvation, Lord, is for all peoples.
Sing to the LORD a new song;
sing to the LORD, all you lands.
Sing to the Lord, bless his name;
announce his salvation, day after day.
Tell his glory among the nations;
among all peoples, his marvelous deeds. R.

Give to the LORD, you families of nations,
give to the LORD glory and praise;
give to the LORD the glory due his name! R.

Say among the nations: The LORD is king.
He has made the world firm, not to be moved.
he governs the peoples with equity. R.

May the God of peace, who brought up from the dead the great shepherd of the sheep, make you perfect in every good thing.

A reading from the Letter to the Hebrews
13:12-15, 20-21

Brothers and sisters:
Jesus also suffered outside the gate, to consecrate the people by his own blood.
Let us then go to him outside the camp, bearing the reproach that he bore.
For here we have no lasting city, but we seek the one that is to come.
Through him then let us continually offer God a sacrifice of praise,
that is, the fruit of lips that confess his name.

May the God of peace, who brought up from the dead
the great shepherd of the sheep
by the Blood of the eternal covenant, Jesus our Lord,
furnish you with all that is good, that you may do his will.
May he carry out in you what is pleasing to him through Jesus Christ,
to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen.

The word of the Lord.

Lk 4:18

R. Alleluia, alleluia.

The Lord has sent me
to bring glad tidings to the poor,
to proclaim liberty to captives.



Today this scripture is fulfilled.

A reading from the holy Gospel according to Luke

At that time, Jesus came to Nazareth, where he had grown up,
and went according to his custom
into the synagogue on the sabbath day.
He stood up to read and was handed a scroll of the prophet Isaiah.
He unrolled the scroll and found the passage where it was written:

“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me,
because he has anointed me
to bring glad tidings to the poor.
He has sent me to proclaim liberty to captives
and recovery of sight to the blind,
to let the oppressed go free,
and to proclaim a year acceptable to the Lord.”

Rolling up the scroll, he handed it back to the attendant and sat down,
and the eyes of all in the synagogue looked intently at him.
He said to them,
“Today this scripture passage is fulfilled in your hearing.”

The Gospel of the Lord.

The Profession of Faith is said where solemnity is celebrated


Father most holy, may the bread and wine that we offer you,
as we celebrate the feast of Saint Gaspar,
be a sign of our life offered to you
in your service and that of our neighbor.
Through Christ our Lord.

The mission of Saint Gaspar del Bufalo.

It is truly right and just,
our duty and our salvation,
always and everywhere to give you thanks,
Lord, holy Father, almighty and eternal God,
through Christ our Lord.

For in your providence you give us the joy
of celebrating the feast of Saint Gaspar,
faithful priest of the Church
for whom he stood fast in the face of adversity.
Sustained by the Virgin Mary,
he was a solicitous preacher of the Gospel
and untiring minister of the blood of your Son.
In imitation of Christ,
he became the brother, friend and defender
of the poor and the oppressed.

And so, with all the Angels and Saints,
we praise you and acclaim without end:

There is no greater love than this:
to give one’s life for one’s friends,
says the Lord. Jn 15:13


O God, eternal Father,
who have nourished us with the bread of life
and the chalice of salvation,
through the intercession of Saint Gaspar
give us the strength to hold fast in our lives
to the mystery we have celebrated in faith.
Through Christ our Lord.
