En toi, Marie, tu portes le Messie, et notre vie, voici qu’elle est bénie! Celui par qui toute espérance luit, le Roi des rois, ton Dieu, repose en toi, ô Maria! Première, ô toi, du Père fille aînée! Avant le temps, ô première appelée! En fin des temps, ô première arrivée! Dès l’origine, en Dieu, immaculée, ô Maria! Du pur amour, tu sais la profondeur, tu en connais l’ampleur et la hauteur! Délice et don de notre Créateur, regard de grâce, ô Mère du Seigneur, ô Maria!

In your womb, Mary, you bear the Messiah, our life, thou art hereby blessed! He through whom all hope shines, the King of kings, thy God, rests in thee, O Maria! First, O thou, eldest daughter of the Father! Before all time, thou was first called! At the end of time, thou arrived first! From the beginning, immaculate, in God, O Maria! You know the depth of pure love, you know its magnitude and height! Delight and gift of our Creator, graceful one, O Holy Mother of God, O Maria!

I confess to almighty God and to you, my brothers and sisters, that I have greatly sinned, in my thoughts and in my words, in what I have done and in what I have failed to do, through my fault, through my fault, through my most grievous fault; therefore I ask blessed Mary ever-Virgin, all the Angels and Saints, and you, my brothers and sisters, to pray for me to the Lord our God.

LITURGY OF THE WORD First Reading

Wisdom 9:13-18b

A reading from the Book Wisdom Who can know God’s counsel, or who can conceive what the LORD intends? For the deliberations of mortals are timid, and unsure are our plans. For the corruptible body burdens the soul and the earthen shelter weighs down the mind that has many concerns. And scarce do we guess the things on earth, and what is within our grasp we find with difficulty; but when things are in heaven, who can search them out? Or who ever knew your counsel, except you had given wisdom and sent your holy spirit from on high? And thus were the paths of those on earth made straight. The word of the Lord. R/ Thanks be to God.

Responsorial Psalm

Psalm 90 Peter J. Latona (b.1968)

You turn man back to dust, saying, “Return, O children of men.� For a thousand years in your sight are as yesterday, now that it is past, or as a watch of the night. R/ You make an end of them in their sleep; the next morning they are like the changing grass, which at dawn springs up anew, but by evening wilts and fades. R/ Teach us to number our days aright, that we may gain wisdom of heart. Return, O LORD! How long? Have pity on your servants! R/ Fill us at daybreak with your kindness, that we may shout for joy and gladness all our days. And may the gracious care of the LORD our God be ours; prosper the work of our hands for us! Prosper the work of our hands! R/

Second Reading

Philemon 9-10, 12-17

A reading from the Letter of Saint Paul to Philemon I, Paul, an old man, and now also a prisoner for Christ Jesus, urge you on behalf of my child Onesimus, whose father I have become in my imprisonment; I am sending him, that is, my own heart, back to you. I should have liked to retain him for myself, so that he might serve me on your behalf in my imprisonment for the gospel, but I did not want to do anything without your consent, so that the good you do might not be forced but voluntary. Perhaps this is why he was away from you for a while, that you might have him back forever, no longer as a slave but more than a slave, a brother, beloved especially to me, but even more so to you, as a man and in the Lord. So if you regard me as a partner, welcome him as you would me. The word of the Lord.

R/ Thanks be to God.

Gospel

Luke 14:25-33

V / The Lord be with you. R/ And with your spirit.

@ A reading from the holy Gospel according to Luke

R/ Glory to you, O Lord. Great crowds were traveling with Jesus, and he turned and addressed them, “If anyone comes to me without hating his father and mother, wife and children, brothers and sisters, and even his own life, he cannot be my disciple. Whoever does not carry his own cross and come after me cannot be my disciple. Which of you wishing to construct a tower does not first sit down and calculate the cost to see if there is enough for its completion? Otherwise, after laying the foundation and finding himself unable to finish the work the onlookers should laugh at him and say, ‘This one began to build but did not have the resources to finish.’ Or what king marching into battle would not first sit down and decide whether with ten thousand troops he can successfully oppose another king advancing upon him with twenty thousand troops? But if not, while he is still far away, he will send a delegation to ask for peace terms. In the same way, anyone of you who does not renounce all his possessions cannot be my disciple.” The Gospel of the Lord.

R/ Praise to you, Lord Jesus Christ.

Homily

Most Reverend William E. Lori Archbishop of Baltimore Supreme Chaplain 11

Profession of Faith

Nicene Creed

I believe in one God, the Father almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all things visible and invisible. I believe in one Lord Jesus Christ, the Only Begotten Son of God, born of the Father before all ages. God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, consubstantial with the Father; through him all things were made. For us men and for our salvation he came down from heaven, (all bow at the following two lines) and by the Holy Spirit was incarnate of the Virgin Mary, and became man. For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate, he suffered death and was buried, and rose again on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures. He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead and his Kingdom will have no end. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son, who with the Father and the Son is adored and glorified, who has spoken through the prophets. I believe in one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church. I confess one Baptism for the forgiveness of sins and I look forward to the resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come. Amen.

Guidelines for the Reception of Communion For Catholics: As Catholics, we fully participate in the celebration of the Eucharist when we receive Holy Communion. We are encouraged to receive Communion devoutly and frequently. In order to be properly disposed to receive Communion, participants should not be conscious of grave sin and normally should have fasted for one hour. A person who is conscious of grave sin is not to receive the Body and Blood of the Lord without prior sacramental confession except for a grave reason where there is no opportunity for confession. In this case, the person is to be mindful of the obligation to make an act of perfect contrition, including the intention of confessing as soon as possible (canon 916). A frequent reception of the Sacrament of Penance is encouraged for all. For our fellow Christians: We welcome our fellow Christians to this celebration of the Eucharist as our brothers and sisters. We pray that our common baptism and the action of the Holy Spirit in this Eucharist will draw us closer to one another and begin to dispel the sad divisions which separate us. We pray that these will lessen and finally disappear, in keeping with Christ’s prayer for us “that they may all be one” (Jn 17:21). Because Catholics believe that the celebration of the Eucharist is a sign of the reality of the oneness of faith, life, and worship, members of those churches with whom we are not yet fully united are ordinarily not admitted to Holy Communion. Eucharistic sharing in exceptional circumstances by other Christians requires permission according to the directives of the diocesan bishop and the provisions of canon law (canon 844 § 4). Members of the Orthodox Churches, the Assyrian Church of the East, and the Polish National Catholic Church are urged to respect the discipline of their own Churches. According to Roman Catholic discipline, the Code of Canon Law does not object to the reception of communion by Christians of these Churches (canon 844 § 3). For those not receiving Holy Communion: All who are not receiving Holy Communion are encouraged to express in their hearts a prayerful desire for unity with the Lord Jesus and with one another. For non-Christians: We also welcome to this celebration those who do not share our faith in Jesus Christ. While we cannot admit them to Holy Communion, we ask them to offer their prayers for the peace and the unity of the human family.

Communion Motet

Pod Twoją Obronę Henryk Górecki (1933-2010)

Pod Twoją obronę uciekamy się, święta Boża Rodzicielko, naszymi prośbami racz nie gardzić w potrzebach naszych, ale od wszelakich złych przygód racz nas zawsze wybawiać, Panno chwalebna i błogosławiona. O Pani nasza, Orędowniczko nasza, Pośredniczko nasza, Pocieszycielko nasza. Z Synem swoim nas pojednaj, Synowi swojemu nas polecaj, swojemu Synowi nas oddawaj. Amen. We fly to thy protection, O holy Mother of God; despise not our petitions in our necessities, but deliver us from all dangers, O glorious and blessed Virgin. O, Our Lady, our Advocate, our Mediator, our Comforter. Reconcile us with your Son, give us to your Son. Amen. N.B. Henryk Górecki dedicated this setting of the traditional Latin prayer Sub Tuum Præsidium to the Knights of Columbus in honor of the Order’s establishment in Poland. Górecki was one of Poland’s most revered contemporary composers of classical music and a member of Our Lady of Ludźmierz Council 14001.

ACT OF RECONSECRATION OF THE KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS TO THE BLESSED VIRGIN MARY Remarks

Carl A. Anderson Supreme Knight

Prayer of Reconsecration Supreme Chaplain: Dignare me laudare te, Virgo sacrata! Grant that I may praise you, most Blessed Virgin! Mother of the Redeemer, the Father chose you before the creation of the world. The Son of God desired you for his mother when He became man to save the human race. You obediently received Him in your womb with an undivided heart, and entrusted God’s Son and yours to Joseph’s care and protection. In your Holy Family may we find protection and inspiration for our own families challenged by a culture hostile to the Truth. The Holy Spirit loved you as His mystical spouse and filled you with singular gifts. You allowed yourself to be led to your kinswoman Elizabeth, where the Gospel of mankind’s salvation was proclaimed by John the Baptist from the womb of his mother. To the lowly and trusting Bernadette you identified yourself at Lourdes as the “Immaculate Conception.” In doing so, you remind us that God wants us to be like Him. O Mary Immaculate, help us to live the 36


5053 9-13 Pilgrimage Mass Book_2590 Tues 9/4/13 2:52 PM Page 37

same holiness that you lived and which you seek to reveal in us through your maternal mediation. You appeared to Juan Diego and left your image imprinted forever in nature as a sign of your love. Our Lady of Guadalupe, we cannot hide from your humble downward gaze upon all the people of America. Your reminder that you are our Mother gives us certainty in our uncertainty and assurance that you will answer all our needs and provide for them. O Mother of the human family, Mother of America, and Mother of the Knights of Columbus, we confidently entrust ourselves and our families to you. Through your intercession, may we zealously listen to and be guided by our Holy Father Francis; may we fearlessly evangelize our communities, our parishes and society at large; may we unselfishly share our gifts with those most in need as true Knights of charity; and may we humbly draw strength for every challenge to life and liberty from the inspiration of our founder, the Venerable Servant of God Father Michael J. McGivney. Obtain for us strong faith and the grace of eternal salvation. Pray that we might be dedicated entirely to your Son. We pray that by your motherly care our Order and our hearts, newly consecrated, and belonging totally to God, may be a special portion for Him, who is Father, Son and Holy Spirit. All:

Amen. 37

Come, adore this wondrous presence; Bow to Christ, the source of grace! Here is kept the ancient promise of God’s earthly dwelling place!

Blest be God by all creation joyously while ages run! Amen.

THE MIGHTY CARILLON OF THE KNIGHTS TOWER Rising high above the northeast sector of the nation’s capital as a defining feature of the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, the Knights Tower stands in testament to the devotion American Catholics hold for the Blessed Mother. Funded by a $1 million grant from the Knights of Columbus, the 329-foot tower was completed in time for the dedication of “America’s Catholic Church” on Nov. 20, 1957. Almost six years later, with an additional donation from the Knights of Columbus, the 56-bell carillon was finished on two levels of the Knights Tower. The inauguration concert of the bells was held on September 8, 1963, with Arthur L. Bigelow, bellmaster of Princeton University, playing such familiar tunes as Exsultate Deo, Faith of Our Fathers, Ave Maria and Tantum Ergo. The 56 bells, which vary in weight from 7,200 lbs. to a mere 21 lbs., were manufactured under a joint contract by two European companies, one in France and the other in Holland. Following ancient tradition, some of the bells are named and inscribed with words that the bell is given to “sing.” Appropriately, Mary is the name of the largest bell, or bourdon, and sounds the note B-flat. The inscription on the bells reads: “MARY IS MY NAME / MARY IS MY SOUND / BELOVED MOTHER / QUEEN OF HEAVEN AND EARTH / QUEEN OF THIS DEAR LAND / FOR KNIGHTS TO GOD AND COUNTRY BOUND / AND ALL WHO HEAR MY VOICE / I SING THE PRAISES OF GOD.” The inscription includes an explanation how the bell got its name: “Supreme Knight Luke E. Hart, under whose leadership both the carillon and tower were donated to the Shrine, requested that 47


5053 9-13 Pilgrimage Mass Book_2590 Tues 9/4/13 2:52 PM Page 48

the largest bell be dedicated to the Blessed Mother, Queen of Heaven and Patroness of the U.S., thereby expressing the love and devotion of the Knights to her.” The close association of the Knights of Columbus with the carillon is recorded in the bells themselves, a number of which have been named. The St. Christopher Bell honors Christopher Columbus, Discoverer of the Americas and patron of the Knights of Columbus. The St. Michael Bell honors Father Michael J. McGivney, Founder of the Order. The St. James Bell honors three supreme knights: James T. Mullen (1882-1886), James E. Hayes (1897-1898) and James A. Flaherty (1909-1927). The St. John Bell also honors three supreme knights: John J. Phelan (1886-1897), John J. Cone (1898-1899) and John E. Swift (1945-1953). The St. Edward Bell honors Supreme Knight Edward L. Hearn (1899-1909). The St. Martin of Tours Bell honors Supreme Knight Martin Carmody (1927-1939). The St. Francis of Assisi Bell honors Supreme Knight Francis P. Matthews (1939-1945). The St. Luke Bell honors Supreme Knight Luke E. Hart (1953-1964). Bells have also been named for St. Virgil in honor of Supreme Knight Virgil C. Dechant (1977-2000) and, most recently, for St. Karol in honor of Supreme Knight Carl A. Anderson (2000present), as part of the ceremonies for the dedication of the Knights of Columbus Incarnation Dome on Nov. 17, 2007. The bells are an intimate and intricate part of the daily life of the National Shrine, set off by short electronic prompts every 15 minutes and marking each hour with a longer song. The bells may be sounded by hand by a carillonneur pounding the unique keyboard that prompts the striking of the bells — a skilled task that requires a good deal of strength. The shrine’s carillonneur since 1964 has been Dr. Robert B. Grogan. With thanks to Dr Geraldine Rohling, Archivist and Curator of the Basilica of the National Shrine, whose research contributed to this account.

SPECIAL PLENARY INDULGENCE FOR THE YEAR OF FAITH During the Year of Faith, Oct. 11, 2012 – Nov. 24, 2013, all individual faithful, truly repentant, duly confessed, communing sacramentally, and who pray according to the intentions of the Supreme Pontiff, will be able to acquire a Plenary Indulgence from the temporal punishment for their sins imparted by God’s mercy, applicable in suffrage to the souls of the deceased faithful (Decree of the Apostolic Penitentiary, Sept. 14, 2012). The conditions are as follows: (A) Every time they take part in at least three homilies preached or attend at least three lectures on the Proceedings of the Second Vatican Council and on the Articles of the Catechism of the Catholic Church, in any church or suitable place; (B) Every time they go as pilgrims to a Papal Basilica, a Christian catacomb, a cathedral church, a sacred place designated by the local Ordinary for the Year of Faith (e.g. the Minor Basilicas and Shrines dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary, to the Holy Apostles or to the Holy Patrons), and take part there in some sacred function or at least pause in recollection for a suitable length of time with devout meditation, concluding with the recitation of the Our Father, the Profession of Faith in any legitimate form, invocations to the Blessed Virgin Mary or, depending on the case, to the Holy Apostles or Patrons; (C) Every time when, on the days determined by the local Ordinary for the Year of Faith (e.g. the Solemnities of the Lord and of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Feasts of the Holy Apostles and Patrons and of the Chair of St. Peter), in any sacred place, they take part in a solemn Eucharistic celebration or in the Liturgy of the Hours, adding the Profession of Faith in any legitimate form; 49


5053 9-13 Pilgrimage Mass Book_2590 Tues 9/4/13 2:52 PM Page 50

(D) A day freely chosen during the Year of Faith on which to make a devout visit to the baptistery or other place in which they received the sacrament of Baptism, if they renew their baptismal promises in any legitimate form. Diocesan or Eparchial Bishops and those who are legally equivalent to them, on the most appropriate day in this period, on the occasion of the principal celebration (e.g. Nov. 24, 2013, on the Solemnity of Our Lord Jesus Christ, Universal King, with which the Year of Faith will end) will be able to impart the Papal Blessing with the Plenary Indulgence from which all the faithful who receive this Blessing devoutly may benefit. Faithful who are truly repentant and are unable to take part in the solemn celebrations for serious reasons (e.g. all the nuns who live in perpetually cloistered monasteries, anchorites and the hermits, prisoners, the elderly, the sick, and likewise those who, in hospital or in other places for treatment serve the sick permanently‌), will gain the Plenary Indulgence on the same conditions, if, united in mind and spirit with the faithful present, especially at a moment when the words of the Supreme Pontiff or of the Diocesan Bishops are broadcast via the television or radio, they recite at home, or wherever their impediment obliges them to be (e.g. in the monastery chapel, in hospital, in a clinic, in prison...), the Our Father, the Profession of faith in any legitimate form and other prayers in conformity with the objectives of the Year of Faith, offering up their suffering or the hardship in their lives. The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) Administrative Committee, who form the Corporation of the Basilica of the National Shrine and are the bishops who oversee the ministry and operations of the Shrine, designated the National Shrine, as the national pilgrimage destination where the Plenary Indulgence can be obtained during the Year of Faith, provided that the usual conditions are fulfilled. 50
