    Here in the Diocese of Jefferson City, to honor the Patroness of our diocese, Bishop McKnight has once again transferred the Feast of the Immaculate Heart of Mary from Saturday June 17 to Sunday June 18, replacing the 11th Sunday of Ordinary Time. This also includes the anticipatory Mass on Saturday evening June 17.

    The readings chosen are included below. (This is what was supplied to me from the office of Divine Worship of the Diocese.)

    What should I use for chanted propers (Introit, Offertory, Communio)?

    Isaiah 61:9-11

    Thus says the LORD:
    The descendants of my people shall be renowned among the nations,
    and their offspring among the peoples;
    All who see them shall acknowledge them
    as a race the LORD has blessed.
    I rejoice heartily in the LORD,
    in my God is the joy of my soul;
    For he has clothed me with a robe of salvation,
    and wrapped me in a mantle of justice,
    Like a bridegroom adorned with a diadem,
    like a bride bedecked with her jewels.
    As the earth brings forth its plants,
    and a garden makes its growth spring up,
    So will the Lord God make justice and praise
    spring up before all the nations.

    1 Samuel 2:1, 4-5, 6-7, 8abcd
    R. My heart exults in the Lord, my Savior.

    “My heart exults in the LORD,
    my horn is exalted in my God.
    I have swallowed up my enemies; I rejoice in my victory.”

    “The bows of the mighty are broken,
    while the tottering gird on strength.
    The well-fed hire themselves out for bread,
    while the hungry batten on spoil.
    The barren wife bears seven sons,
    while the mother of many languishes.”

    “The LORD puts to death and gives life;
    he casts down to the nether world;
    he raises up again.
    The LORD makes poor and makes rich,
    he humbles, and also exalts.”

    “He raises the needy from the dust;
    from the dung heap he lifts up the poor,
    To seat them with nobles
    and make a glorious throne their heritage.”

    Revelation 21:1-5a
    I, John, saw a new heaven and a new earth.
    The former heaven and the former earth had passed away,
    and the sea was no more.
    I also saw the holy city, a new Jerusalem,
    coming down out of heaven from God,
    prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
    I heard a loud voice from the throne saying,
    “Behold, God’s dwelling is with the human race.
    He will dwell with them and they will be his people
    and God himself will always be with them as their God.
    He will wipe every tear from their eyes,
    and there shall be no more death or mourning, wailing or pain, for the old order has passed away.”
    The One who sat on the throne said, “Behold, I make all things new.”

    Alleluia, alleluia.
    Blessed is the Virgin Mary who kept the word of God
    and pondered it in her heart.
    Alleluia, alleluia. 

    Luke 2:41-51
    Each year Jesus’ parents went to Jerusalem for the feast of Passover,
    and when he was twelve years old,
    they went up according to festival custom.
    After they had completed its days, as they were returning,
    the boy Jesus remained behind in Jerusalem,
    but his parents did not know it.
    Thinking that he was in the caravan, they journeyed for a day
    and looked for him among their relatives and acquaintances,
    but not finding him,
    they returned to Jerusalem to look for him.
    After three days they found him in the temple,
    sitting in the midst of the teachers,
    listening to them and asking them questions,
    and all who heard him were astounded
    at his understanding and his answers.
    When his parents saw him, they were astonished,
    and his mother said to him,
    “Son, why have you done this to us?
    Your father and I have been looking for you with great anxiety.”
    And he said to them,
    “Why were you looking for me?
    Did you not know that I must be in my Father’s house?”
    But they did not understand what he said to them.
    He went down with them and came to Nazareth,
    and was obedient to them;
    and his mother kept all these things in her heart.

    Should I use the propers assigned to the day?-

    My Heart will rejoice in your salvation.
    I will sing to the Lord, who has been bountiful with me.

    Mary treasured all these words,
    reflecting on them in her heart.

    Should I use the propers for the 11th Sunday?

    Or should I use another set/propers?
