The Messiah had to suffer, so as to enter into His Glory
From a discourse by Saint Anastasius of Antioch, Bishop
(Dissertation 4:1-2, PG 89. 1347-1349)


After Christ had shown Himself, through His words and works, as true God and Lord of the universe, He was saying to His disciples, about to go up to Jerusalem: Behold, we go up to Jerusalem, and the Son of Man will be delivered to the Gentiles and the chief priests and the scribes, so that they scourge Him, mock Him and crucify Him.

This He said was in accordance with the predictions of the prophets, who had announced in advance the death that he was to suffer in Jerusalem. The sacred Scriptures had prophesied from the beginning the death of Christ and all that He would suffer before his death; as also what was to happen to His body, after death; with all this they predicted that this God, to whom such things happened, was impassive and immortal; and we could not have Him for God, if, in contemplating the reality of His incarnation, we did not discover in it the just and true motive to profess our faith in both extremes, that is, in His passion and in His impassivity; as also the motive by why the Word of God, for all else impassive, wanted to suffer the Passion: because it was the only way man could be saved. All of these things that only He knows and those to whom He reveals them; He, in effect, knows everything that concerns the Father, in the same way that the Spirit penetrates the depth of the divine mysteries.

The Messiah, then, had to suffer, and His passion was totally necessary, as He himself affirmed when He qualified those men without intelligence and short of understanding, those disciples who ignored that the Messiah had to suffer to enter into His glory. Because He, in truth, came to save His people, leaving that glory that He had with the Father before the world existed; and this salvation is that perfection which was to be obtained through the Passion, and thid was to be attributed to the One who led us to salvation, as the letter to the Hebrews teaches us, when it says that it is He who guides us to our salvation, perfected through the medium of suffering and endurance.

And we see, in a certain way, how the glory that He possessed as the Only Begotten, and the same glory which He renounced for us for a brief time, is restored to Him through the cross in the same flesh that He had assumed. In effect, Saint John says in his Gospel, when explaining in what the water consists of; in that water which the Savior said would flow like a torrent from the breast of the one who believes in Him: This He said about the Holy Spirit, which was to be received by those who would be united with Him by faith, as the Spirit had not yet been given to them, because Jesus had not been glorified. This is why the Lord, in the prayer that He directs to the Father before His Passion, asks to be glorified in that glory that He had together with Him, before the world existed.

PRAYER

LET US PRAY,
Lord God, who has provided us with the remedy of our evils through the Paschal Mystery, fill your people with your heavenly gifts, so that they may attain perfect freedom and come to enjoy fully in the Heaven of joy that they have already begun to taste on earth. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit and is God, for ever and ever.
Amen

OUR FATHER

Our Father, Who Art In Heaven
Hallowed Be Thy Name.
Thy Kingdom come,
Thy Will be done
On earth as it is in Heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread
And forgive us our trespasses
As we forgive those who trespass against us.
Liberate us from all temptation[*]
And deliver us from all evil. Amen



[*] Liberate us is in keeping with the original Latin text.
       God usually does not "lead us" to temptation
       (unless we are tested),
       but gives us the grace to overcome and/or resist it

HAIL MARY

Hail Mary, full of grace
The Lord is with thee.
Blessed art though among women,
And blessed is the fruit
Of thy womb, Jesus.
 
Holy Mary, Mary of God
Pray for us sinners
Now, and in the hour
Of our death. Amen

APOSTLE'S CREED

I believe in God, the Father Almighty Creator of Heaven and earth;
And in Jesus Christ, His Only Son, our Lord;
Who was conceived by the
[work and grace of the] Holy Ghost,[*]
Born of the Virgin Mary,
Suffered under Pontius Pilate,
Was crucified, died and was buried.
He descended into the Dead.[**]
On the third day, He rose again;
He ascended into Heaven,
And sits at the right hand of God,
the Father Almighty.
From thence he shall come to judge
the living and the dead.
 
I believe in the Holy Ghost,[*]
The Holy Catholic Church,
The communion of saints,
The forgiveness of sins.
The resurrection of the body,
And life everlasting. Amen


[*] Holy Ghost: may be substituted with the current Holy Spirit.
[**] the Dead: "inferi", the underworld or the dead in Latin.

DE PROFUNDIS

Out of the depths I have cried to Thee, O Lord:
Lord, hear my voice.
Let Thine ears be attentive
to the voice of my supplication.

If thou, O Lord, wilt mark iniquities:
Lord, who shall abide it.
For with Thee there is merciful forgiveness:
and because of Thy law,
I have waited for Thee, O Lord.

My soul hath waited on His word:
my soul hath hoped in the Lord.
From the morning-watch even until night,
let Israel hope in the Lord.

For with the Lord there is mercy:
and with Him plenteous redemption.
And He shall redeem Israel
from all her iniquities.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son,
and to the Holy Ghost[*],
as it was in the beginning, is now,
and ever shall be, world without end.
Amen

[*] Holy Ghost: may be substituted with the current Holy Spirit.

CREDO

Creo en Dios, Padre Todopoderoso,
Creador del cielo y de la tierra.
Creo en Jesucristo,
Su único Hijo, Nuestro Señor,
Que fue concebido por obra
y gracia del Espíritu Santo,
Nació de la Santa María Virgen;
Padeció bajo el poder de Poncio Pilato,
Fue crucificado, muerto y sepultado,
Descendió a los infiernos,
Al tercer día resucitó de entre los muertos,
Subió a los cielos
Y está sentado a la derecha de Dios,
Padre Todopoderoso.
Desde allí ha de venir a juzgar
a los vivos y a los muertos.

Creo en el Espíritu Santo,
La Santa Iglesia Católica,
La comunión de los santos,
El perdón de los pecados,
La resurrección de la carne
Y la vida eterna. Amén

Pero de ti procede el perdón,

Mi alma espera en el Señor.

Espera en su palabra;

Aguarda Israel al Señor.

Como el centinela la aurora;
porque del Señor viene la misericordia.

Gloria al Padre, al Hijo y al
