ASSUMPTION DAY BLESSING OF HERBS AND FRUITS




Blessing of herbs/fruits in Ukrainian Rite

THE ONLY KNOWN BLESSING OF HERBS & FRUITS IN GEORGIA FOR THE ASSUMPTION WILL BE AT ST FRANCIS DE SALES IN MABLETON (ATLANTA DIOCESE).

HERBS & FRUITS ARE BLESSED ON THIS DAY-ANY PRIEST MAY USE THE ROMAN RITUAL TO PERFORM THESE BLESSINGS -BELOW IS THE ENGLISH TO FOLLOW ALONG WITH THE PRIEST

HERB & FRUIT BLESSINGS WILL BE AFTER EACH MASS ON SUNDAY AUGUST 15TH. PLACE BASKETS ON THE TABLES IN THE BACK OF THE GYM. MASS TIMES 8:00 AM LOW MASS 10:30 AM HIGH MASS 1:00 PM LOW MASS FOR DIRECTIONS CLICK : www.fsspatl.com


The blessing of herbs was reserved only to the feast of the Assumption. Herbs had not our restricted English meaning but included all kinds of cultivated and wild flowers, especially those which in some way had a symbolic relation to our Lady. The people brought herbs to church on her feast not only to secure for themselves another blessed object, but also to make of the occasion a harvest festival of thanksgiving to God for His great bounty manifested in the abundant fruits of the earth. The herbs were placed on the altar, and even beneath the altar-cloths, so that from this close contact with the Eucharist they might receive a special consecration, over and above the ordinary sacramental blessing of the Church.}
After the Asperges if it is a Sunday, otherwise immediately before Mass, the priest, standing before the altar and facing the people who hold the herbs and fruits in their hands, says in a clear voice:
P: Our help is in the name of the Lord. 
All: Who made heaven and earth.
Psalm 64
P: To you we owe our hymn of praise, O God, in Sion; to you must vows be fulfilled, you who hear prayers.
All: To you all flesh must come* because of wicked deeds.
P: We are overcome by our sins; * it is you who pardon them.
All: Happy the man you choose, * and bring to dwell in your courts.
P: May we be filled with the good things of your house, * the holy things of your temple.
All: With awe-inspiring deeds of justice you answer us, * O God our Savior,
P: The hope of all the ends of the earth * and of the distant seas.
All: You set the mountains in place by your power, * you who are girt with might;
P: You still the roaring of the seas, * the roaring of their waves and the tumult of the peoples.
All: And the dwellers at the earth's ends are in fear at your marvels; * the farthest east and west you make resound with joy.
P: You have visited the land and watered it; * greatly have you enriched it.
All: God's watercourses are filled; you have prepared the grain. * Thus have you prepared the land:
P: Drenching its furrows, * breaking up its clods,
All: Softening it with showers, * blessing its yield.
P: You have crowned the year with your bounty, * and your paths overflow with a rich harvest;
All: The untilled meadows overflow with it, * and rejoicing clothes the hills.
P: The fields are garmented with flocks and the valleys blanketed with grain. * They shout and sing for joy.
All: Glory be to the Father.
P: As it was in the beginning.
P: The Lord will be gracious.
All: And our land will bring forth its fruit.
P: You water the mountains from the clouds.
All: The earth is replenished from your rains.
P: Giving grass for cattle.
All: And plants for the benefit of man.
P: You bring wheat from the earth.
All: And wine to cheer man's heart.
P: Oil to make his face lustrous.
All: And bread to strengthen his heart.
P: He utters a command and heals their suffering.
All: And snatches them from distressing want. 
P: Lord, heed my prayer. 
All: And let my cry be heard by you. 
P: The Lord be with you. 
All: May He also be with you.
Let us pray.
Almighty everlasting God, who by your word alone brought into being the heavens, earth, sea, things seen and things unseen, and garnished the earth with plants and trees for the use of man and beast; who appointed each species to bring forth fruit in its kind, not only for the food of living creatures, but for the healing of sick bodies as well; with mind and word we urgently call on you in your great kindness to bless + these various herbs and fruits, thus increasing their natural powers with the newly given grace of your blessing. May they keep away disease and adversity from men and beasts who use them in your name; through Christ our Lord. 
All: Amen.
Let us pray.
God, who through Moses, your servant, directed the children of Israel to carry their sheaves of new grain to the priests for a blessing, to pluck the finest fruits of the orchard, and to make merry before you, the Lord their God; hear our supplications, and shower blessings + in abundance upon us and upon these bundles of new grain, new herbs, and this assortment of produce which we gratefully present to you on this festival, blessing + them in your name. Grant that men, cattle, flocks, and beasts of burden find in them a remedy against sickness, pestilence, sores, injuries, spells, against the fangs of serpents or poisonous creatures. May these blessed objects be a protection against diabolical mockery, cunning, and deception wherever they are kept, carried, or otherwise used. Lastly, through the merits of the blessed Virgin Mary, whose Assumption we are celebrating, may we all, laden with the sheaves of good works, deserve to be taken up to heaven; through Christ our Lord. 
All: Amen.
Let us pray.
God, who on this day raised up to highest heaven the rod of Jesse, the Mother of your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, that by her prayers and patronage you might communicate to our mortal nature the fruit of her womb, your very Son; we humbly implore you to help us use these fruits of the soil for our temporal and everlasting welfare, aided by the power of your Son and the prayers of His glorious Mother; through Christ our Lord. 
All: Amen.
And may the blessing of almighty God, Father, Son, + and Holy Spirit, come upon these creatures and remain always. 
All: Amen.
They are sprinkled with holy water and incensed.

FSSP PRIEST ASSIGNMENTS AFFECT GEORGIA

 

NEW FSSP PRIEST ASSIGNED TO ARCHDIOCESE OF ATLANTA

The FSSP makes its yearly priest assignments each summer and this year it will affect the parish of Saint Francis de Sales in Mableton. First, thankfully, the pastor Father Robert Dow, FSSP will remain as pastor, however the assistant pastor Father James Smith FSSP as been assigned as the new chaplain of the FSSP apostolate in Harrisburg Pennsylvania. His replacement here will be Father Andrew Rapoport, FSSP. . These changes take place next week. Father Smith may be contacted at:

Mater Dei

110 State Street

Harrisburg PA  17101. 

A short abridged bio of Father Rapoport  from his ordination announcement.

Father Rapoport is coming to us from the FSSP apostolate in  Post Falls Idaho. He was ordained in 2018 in Omaha Nebraska. He was born in San Jose California and grew up in San Luis Obispo. He studied Auto Technology in college. At school he became involved in the Newman Center. He then learned of the promise of Our Lady of Fatima and began saying a daily rosary, assisting at daily mass and spending time before the Blessed Sacrament.  He began to feel the distant call in his heart. In 2010 one day when he was kneeling before the Blessed Sacrament he felt a sudden urge to celebrate mass. Two weeks later a friend told him that he would make a good priest. About the same time he discovered the beauty of the traditional Latin Mass and after attending a sung Mass, he was struck by its beauty and he knew this was the mass that he wanted to celebrate. In 2011 Father entered the FSSP seminary in Denton Nebraska.

SAVANNAH BISHOP ISSUES LETTER



THE BISHOP OF SAVANNAH HAS ISSUED THE BELOW LETTER ON THE DIOCESE WEBPAGE

Feast of St. Mary Magdalene

Dear Friends in Christ,

On Friday, July 16, Pope Francis issued the motu proprio Traditionis Custodes, in which he established new guidelines for the celebration of the Traditional Latin Mass (also known as the Extraordinary Form*) for the worldwide Church. I encourage you to read the document and the letter to the Bishops of the world that accompanied it in their entirety.

I was introduced to the Mass in the Extraordinary Form after my Ordination as your Bishop, and I found great reverence and mystery there. In every celebration of the Mass – regardless of the Missal being used – it is my prayer that we are all drawn into the gift and mystery of the Real Presence of Christ.

Please join me in asking for the care of the Blessed Mother and the wisdom of St. Joseph while I, as your shepherd, discern the spirit of what Pope Francis is asking of us and determine the proper implementation of these guidelines across our Diocese. Until these decisions are made, Priests in the parishes already scheduled to offer Mass in the Extraordinary Form have permission to do so.

On this feast of St. Mary Magdalene, I am reminded of her words at the tomb: “They have taken my Lord away, and I do not know where they have put him.” Her confusion and despair soon gave way to great joy…rejoicing in the presence of the resurrected Lord. We place our trust and confidence in the Holy Spirit guiding our Church and her leaders to peace and joy.

Please be assured of my daily prayers for you, your loved ones and your intentions. May we meet each day in our prayers and Rejoice in the Lord always!

Most Reverend Stephen D. Parkes
Bishop of Savannah

NEXT MASS IN AUGUSTA JULY 25TH 1:00 PM FOR THE 9TH SUNDAY AFTER PENTECOST (FEAST OF ST. JAMES THE GREAT AND ST CHRISTOPHER)

Sunday's Mass was a resounding success! Fr. Almeter's 1pm Extraordinary Form Mass was a beautiful one. The music was very well done, as always, by the choir. Many in attendance have commented that this Mass seemed to have an extraordinarily peaceful feeling about it. It was very well attended with nearly 200 earthly souls present, the highest number since the Solemn High Mass with Bp. Parkes back in March. Fr. Almeter expressed his own pleasure about Sunday's Mass and is excited to continue to offer the Extraordinary Form, potentially increasing the offerings in the near future. If you missed the Mass or would like to re-watch Father's homily, it is posted on Facebook.

While Jose Reyes-Ortiz, the wonderfully talented music director at Most Holy Trinity, was hard at work in the choir loft during Mass, his wife Gema captured some beautiful pictures of the Mass. They are available at our website augustalatinmass.org. A few are attached to this email. If you get a chance, have a look. We are truly blessed to have these talented people.

Please continue to support this effort, and let Father know how grateful you are for his willingness to offer this ancient and venerable rite on our behalf. Do not forget to pray for him every day as he requested in his first homily to us. God bless, and see you the last Sunday of July.

One of the most ancient blessings in the Roman Ritual is the Blessing of a bonfire on the Vigil of the Nativity of St John the Baptist. ( The Vigil is June 23rd). Pursuant to Summorum Pontificum you can ask your priest to utilize the Roman Ritual (in addition to the Missal &Breviary) and can ask him to perfom this blessing at your Church

If you are able to have your priest bless a bonfire here is the English translation of the Blessing for you to follow along:

 BLESSING OF A BONFIRE

on the Vigil of the Birthday of St. John the Baptist

conferred by the clergy outside of church

In the Church's veneration of her saints the cult of John the Baptist had from earliest times and continues to have a most prominent and honored place. John gave testimony of the true light that shines in the darkness, although he proclaimed in utter humility: "He must increase, but I must decrease." And the Master also spoke in highest praise of His precursor: "I say to you, among those born of women there is not a greater prophet than John the Baptist." Attuned to the words of the Gospel the Christians of former times were filled with love and enthusiasm for this saint, and expressed a justifiable conviviality at the approach of his feast day by lighting a bonfire the night before in front of their churches, in the market-place, on the hilltops, and in the valleys. The custom of St. John bonfires, indicative of a people with unabashed and childlike faith, continues in some places to this day.

P: Our help is in the name of the Lord.

All: Who made heaven and earth.

P: The Lord be with you.

All: May He also be with you.
Let us pray.

Lord God, almighty Father, the light that never fails and the source of all light, sanctify + this new fire, and grant that after the darkness of this life we may come unsullied to you who are light eternal; through Christ our Lord.
All: Amen.

The fire is sprinkled with holy water; after which the clergy and the people sing the following hymn (for the music see the music supplement):

Hymn: Ut queant laxis

O for your spirit, holy John, to chasten

Lips sin-polluted, fettered tongues to loosen;

So by your children might your deeds of wonder

Meetly be chanted.

Lo! a swift herald, from the skies descending,

Bears to your father promise of your greatness;

How he shall name you, what your future story,

Duly revealing.

Scarcely believing message so transcendent,

Him for a season power of speech forsaketh,

Till, at your wondrous birth, again returneth,

Voice to the voiceless.

You, in your mother's womb all darkly cradled,

Knew your great Monarch, biding in His chamber,

Whence the two parents, through their offspring's merits,

Mysteries uttered.

Praise to the Father, to the Son begotten,

And to the Spirit, equal power possessing,

One God whose glory, through the lapse of ages,

Ever resounding.

P: There was a man sent from God.

All Whose name was John.
Let us pray.

God, who by reason of the birth of blessed John have made this

day praiseworthy, give your people the grace of spiritual joy,

and keep the hearts of your faithful fixed on the way that leads

to everlasting salvation; through Christ our Lord.
All: Amen.
