Secretary of State, Note Concerning the New Dispositions by the Holy Father Benedict XVI for the Liturgical Celebrations of Good Friday, 4 February 2008.


NOTE FROM THE SECRETARY OF STATE CONCERNING THE NEW DISPOSITIONS BY THE HOLY FATHER BENEDICT XVI FOR THE LITURGICAL CELEBRATIONS OF GOOD FRIDAY

Referring to the measures contained in the motu proprio Summorum Pontificum, of 7 July 2007, about the possibility of using the last edition of the Missale Romanum, prior to the Second Vatican Council, published in 1962 with the authority of Bl. John XXIII, the Holy Father Benedict XVI has disposed that the Oremus et pro Iudaeis of the Liturgy of Good Friday contained in the above-mentioned Missale Romanum be substituted with the following text:

Oreumus et pro Iudaeis

Ut Deus et Dominus noster illuminet corda eorum, ut agnoscant Iesum Christum salvatorem omnium hominum.

Oremus. Flectamus genua. Levate.

Omnipotens sempiterne Deus, qui vis ut omnes homines salvi fiant et ad agnitionem veritatis veniant, concede propitius, ut plenitudine gentium in Ecclesiam Tuam intrante omnis Israel salvus fiat. Per Christum Dominum nostrum. Amen.

This text will be used, beginning this year, in all the Liturgical celebrations of Good Friday with the above-cited Missale Romanum.

From the Vatican, 4 February 2008.
