The Nineteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time 2021[13496]

“God Ineffable—whose ways are mercy and truth, whose will is omnipotence itself, and whose wisdom
‘reaches from end to end mightily, and orders all things sweetly’—having foreseen from all eternity the
lamentable wretchedness of the entire human race which would result from the sin of Adam, decreed, by
a plan hidden from the centuries, to complete the first work of his goodness by a mystery yet more
wondrously sublime through the Incarnation of the Word.”
(Apostolic Constitution of Pius IX, Ineffabilis Deus, The Immaculate Conception, December 8, 1854.)
