Companion to Missal-A: Trinitytide

previous . . .

Trinity Sunday
The centre of the image contains the Scutum Sancte Trinitatis (Shield of the Holy Trinity), and image that appears to date from the 12th century. Above the shield is portrayed the three persons of the Trinity. the cour corners of the image contain the symbols and names of the four Evangelists, John, Matthew, Luke, and Mark.

Officium. Benedicta sit Sancta Trinitas (after Tob. 12:6.)
The ‘Psalm’ is taken from the doxology of the liturgically edited ‘Benedicite omnia opera’ (Daniel 3:57 ff.) See p. [53].
(The Roman Use has Ps. 8:2; AMS has Ps. 33:2.)
The image in the block capital (taken from the 1513 Missal) appears to be David beholding an angel: ‘And David lifting up his eyes, saw the angel of the Lord standing between heaven and earth, with a drawn sword in his hand . . .’ (1 Chronicles 21:16). This appears to have no reference to the Feast of the Trinity. It may be that the image was originally intended for the initial letter of the Psalter: ‘Beatus vir . . .’.
The melody is taken from the Officium for Lent 1.

The Officium, Gradual, Offertory, and Communion all conclude with the same text-phrase: ‘qui fecit nobiscum misericordiam suam.’

Gradual. Benedictus es Domine (Dan 3:55; after Tob. 12:6.)

The Votive Mass in Commemoration of the Trinity normally takes place on Sunday.

The Feast of Corpus Christi

. . . cenutm dies indulgentiarum.
According to Miri Rubin, Corpus Christi: The Eucharist in Late Medieval Culture (Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 1991): 212, this indulgence was granted in 1369 and renewed in 1371.

The image represents the ‘Arma Christi’, the instruments of the Passion.
The images inclue: the Cock, the Pillar, the Whip, the Cords, the Spitting Face of Mockery, the Chalice, the Nails, the Crown of thorns, the Hand which slapped Jseus’ Face, the Hammer, the Lance, the Cross, the Thirty Pieces of Silver hanging from the neck of Judas, the Pincers, the Lantern, the Seeamless Robe, the Dice, the Sponge.
The purpose of the Sheaf of Wheat is unclear; the plant is possibly Hyssop, or the Reed.
Unidentified is the coil to the right of the cross above the head of Judas.

Terence Bailey and Alma Santasuosso, Ashgate, 2007), p. 186, note, while the added text is present in the Missale Romanum (1570) it is absent in the Medicean Gradual (1614-15).
