Saint Scholastica, Virgin

Entrance Antiphon
You have loved justice and hated wickedness;

therefore God, your God, has anointed you with an oil of gladness

beyond any of your fellows (Ps 44: 8).
Act of Penitence
You lead us into the desert

and there you speak to our heart (Hos 2:14).

Kyrie, eleison.
You will guide us by your counsel

and so you will lead us to glory (Ps 72:24).

Christe, eleison.
In your presence is fullness of joy,

at your right hand happiness forever (Ps 15:11).

Kyrie, eleison.
O Lord,

who made Saint Scholastica resplendent

with the brightness of an incomparable purity,

grant that we may please you

by the transparency of our daily lives

and, by faithfulness in the school of your service,

be found worthy of praising you in heaven

with all the angels and saints.

We make our prayer through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,

who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,

God forever and ever.
Collect at the General Intercessions
Almighty and ever-living God

who in your only-begotten Son

opened for us a door of hope

in this valley of tears,

grant that we, like the virgin Saint Scholastica,

may sing to you as in the days of our youth

with purity of heart recovered and holy innocence restored,

so that, having preferred nothing

to the love of the Bridegroom Christ,

it may be given us to sing your praise forever

at the wedding feast of the Lamb.

Through the same Christ our Lord.

Prayer Over the Offerings
Lord, receive the worship that, in our lowliness,

we set forth before you

on this solemnity of the blessed virgin Scholastica;

by this spotless offering,

grant that we may be set ablaze

with a love that is both tender and holy in your sight.

Through Christ our Lord.
Truly it is 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.

Saint Scholastica, obedient to the teaching of Saint Benedict, her brother,

inclined the ear of her heart to the voice of Christ

who led her into the wilderness

and there espoused her in mercy and faithfulness.

This holy virgin chose the best part,

and in preferring nothing to the love of Christ,

reached that love of yours which, being perfect,

drove out all fear.

When in earnest prayer she sought your help,

you answered her outpouring of tears

with a sudden downpour of rain amidst lightning and thunder,

and in this you revealed the surpassing power of love.

In the form of a dove,

her pure soul entered the glory of heaven;

seeing this her brother was filled with joy

and raised his voice in glad thanksgiving.

Now Saint Scholastica rejoices in you who called her,

and praises you forever with the powers of heaven,

with whom we also raise our voices

in this, their endless hymn of praise:

At the Our Father
Taught by commands that bring salvation, and made bold by the love that casts out fear,

we dare to say:

Prayer After Communion
Through the merits of your holy virgin Scholastica,

look down, O Lord, with favor,

upon your family nourished with spiritual food;

and just as you once answered her prayers with a miraculous rain,

so hear her now and moisten the dryness of our hearts

with the dew of divine life.

Through Christ our Lord.
Communion Antiphon
Mary has chosen the better part,

which will not be taken away from her (Lk 10:42).

General Intercessions
That the Church of Christ

may be a door of hope in the midst of a troubled world

and a voice that sings of love’s glorious triumph,

even in the midst of lamentations and cries of distress,

let us pray to the Lord. R. Lord, hear our prayer.
That through the intercession of Saint Scholastica,

the hearts of world leaders may be softened

by the tears of a great multitude,

to seek the things that make for peace, and turn from war,

let us pray to the Lord. R. Lord, hear our prayer.
That all who are afflicted in body, mind, or spirit,

may share in the sufferings of Christ through patience,

and so deserve also to share in his kingdom,

let us pray to the Lord. R. Lord, hear our prayer.
That all nuns, monks, and oblates

living under the Rule of Saint Benedict,

may, like Saint Scholastica, be bold in prayer,

and confident in the triumph of love,

let us pray to the Lord. R. Lord, hear our prayer.
That, following the example of Saints Scholastica and Benedict,

we may harmonize our minds with our voices,

and stand today with holy awe

in the sight of the Divine Majesty and his Angels,

let us pray to the Lord. R. Lord, hear our prayer.
