The Feast of the Patronage of the Holy Mother of God
October 1st

The continuous reading of the Gospel of the Holy Evangelist Luke begins on the Monday following the Sunday after the Exaltation of the Holy Cross.  The four Gospels are all read  in their entirety in the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church Year and the reading of each begins with a great Feast.  The Gospel of Saint John the Theologian begins with the Feast of Feasts, the Pascha of our Lord and is read until Pentecost.  The Gospel of St. Matthew begins with the Feast of Pentecost, the coming of the Holy Spirit, and is read until the Feast of the Holy Cross.  The first Sundays in the Matthew cycle and in the Lucan cycle are of the call of the apostles Peter and Andrew, James and John, indicating that these Gospels also call us to follow after Jesus our Lord.  The Gospel of St. Mark is read during the Holy and Great Fast, but since the Divine Liturgy is celebrated only Saturday and Sunday, the remaining sections are read in the last six weeks of the Matthean and Lucan cycles.  This is why, no matter where we are in the cycle of Sundays after Pentecost, we begin the course reading the Gospel of St. Luke on Monday that comes before the second Sunday after the Exaltation of the Cross, this year it is September 17.  This year there is no “Lucan Jump” since the Sunday after the Exaltation of the Cross is also the Seventeenth Sunday after Pentecost, and there is no interruption in the readings.  The Greek Church, however, begins to number the Sundays by “Weeks after the Holy Cross.”  Of course, a historical factor in this was that September 23, (the Birthday of Augustus, very important when the imperial ideals were still living),  was the beginning of the New Year, so that reading of a new Gospel seemed appropriate at this time.  Later the New Year was moved to September 1.

Prayer to Our Lady of Fatima
O Most Holy Virgin Mary, Queen of the most holy Rosary, you were pleased to appear to the children of Fatima and reveal a glorious message. We implore you; inspire in our hearts a fervent love for the recitation of the Rosary. By meditating on the mysteries of the redemption that are recalled therein may we obtain the graces and virtues that we ask, through the merits of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Redeemer.
