The Twentieth Sunday after Pentecost – Sunday, October 15, 2023

Semi-double Green vestments

Our misfortunes are caused by our unfaithfulness in conforming to the divine will (Introit, Epistle). Therefore, in the same way as the people of Israel when in exile lamented their sins and prayed for God’s mercy (Introit, Offertory), so the Christian people ask the Lord to pardon their sins, so that they may serve Him with a tranquil heart (Collect), and always obey His commandments (Postcommunion).

Like the King’s ruler of whom the Gospel speaks, they persevere with confidence (Communion) in their prayer; as he obtained the healing of his divine son, so do they obtain it for their souls (Secret).
