Die Undecima Januarii ~ IV. classis




St Hyginus  Anno Circa 138-142

After an unaccounted gap of almost two years, the Greek philosopher Hyginus was elected Pope.
Though his name means "wholesome, sound, healthy", it was during his pontificate that the Gnostic heretics Valentine and Cerdo took up residence in Rome. The cause of Hyginus' death is not recorded, but the proximity of heretics has been known to cause ulcers in bishops!



From divinumofficium.

Oratio
V. Dóminus vobíscum.
R. Et cum spiritu tuo.
Orémus.
Deus, qui hodiérna die Unigénitum tuum géntibus stella duce revelásti: concéde propítius; ut, qui iam te ex fide cognóvimus, usque ad contemplándam spéciem tuæ celsitúdinis perducámur.
Per eundem Dominum nostrum Iesum Christum filium tuum, qui tecum vivit et regnat in unitate Spiritus Sancti, Deus, per omnia saecula saeculorum.
R. Amen.

Orémus.
Pro S. Hygino Papa Mart.
Gregem tuum, Pastor ætérne, placátus inténde: et, per beátum Hygínum Mártyrem tuum atque Summum Pontíficem, perpétua protectióne custódi; quem totíus Ecclésiæ præstitísti esse pastórem.
Per Dominum nostrum Iesum Christum, Filium tuum: qui tecum vivit et regnat in unitate Spiritus Sancti Deus, per omnia saecula saeculorum.
R. Amen.

Collect
V. The Lord be with you.
R. And with thy spirit.
Let us pray.
O God, You Who by the guidance of a star this day revealed Your only-begotten Son to the Gentiles; mercifully grant that we who know You now by faith, may come to behold You in glory.
Through the same Jesus Christ, thy Son, Our Lord, Who liveth and reigneth with thee in the unity of the Holy Ghost, God, world without end.
R. Amen.

Let us pray.
Pro S. Hygino Papa Mart.
Look forgivingly on thy flock, Eternal Shepherd, and keep it in thy constant protection, by the intercession of blessed Hyginus thy Martyr and Sovereign Pontiff, whom thou didst constitute Shepherd of the whole Church.
Through Jesus Christ, thy Son our Lord, Who liveth and reigneth with thee, in the unity of the Holy Ghost, ever one God, world without end.
R. Amen.
