Our Lady of Czestochowa Feast Day readings

A Xt3 Member asked at 10:48am on August 2nd 2018
Dear Father

I know that there are special readings during Catholic Mass on the Feast Day of Our Lady of Czestochowa, August 26, 2018 but I can't seem to find them anywhere.

I would appreciate any guidance you can provide. I need to have them in English language.

Most Respectfully

Hi Antoinette, after a lot of looking around, I found those readings for the Feast of Our Lady of Czestochowa, on a Polish-American website:

First Reading Song of Songs 1:5-7
I am as dark-but lovely, O daughters of Jerusalem-As the tents of Kedar, as the curtains of Salma. Do not stare at me because I am swarthy, because the sun has burned me. My brothers have been angry with me; they charged me with the care of the vineyards; my own vineyard I have not cared for.

Responsorial Psalm 45:10-12, 16
Response: The queen stands at your right hand, arrayed in gold.
The queen takes her place at your right hand in gold of Ophir.
Response: The queen stands at your right hand, arrayed in gold.
Hear, Oh daughter and see; turn your ear, forge your people of your father's house.
Response: The queen stands at your right hand, arrayed in gold.
So shall the king desire your beauty; for he is your lord.
Response: The queen stands at your right hand, arrayed in gold.
They are borne in with gladness and joy; they enter the palace of the king.

Second Reading Revelation 11:19, 12:1-6A; 10
God's temple in heaven was opened, and the ark of his covenant could be seen in the temple. A great sign appeared in the sky, a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a cross of twelve stars. She was with child and wailed aloud in pain as she labored to give birth. Then another sign appeared in the sky, it was a huge red dragon, with seven heads and ten horns, and on its head were seven diadems. Its tail swept away a third of the stars in the sky and hurled them down to the earth. Then the dragon stood before the woman about to give birth, to devour her child when she gave birth. She gave birth to a son, a male child, destined to rule all the nations with an iron rod. Her child was caught up to God and his throne. The woman herself fled into the desert where she had a place prepared by God, that there she might be taken care of for twelve hundred and sixty days. Then I heard a loud voice in heaven say: "Now have salvation and power come, and the Kingdom of our God and the authority of His Anointed One. For the accuser of our brothers is cast out, who accuses them before our God day and night."

Alleluia and Gospel Acclamation [not given, but you can easily make one with a phrase from the Magnificat]
Gospel: Luke 1:39-56: The Canticle of Mary-The Magnificat.

With very best wishes, and asking for your prayers to Our Lady of Czestochowa, very best, Fr Brendan
