Feast Of The Five Sacred Wounds Of Our Lord Jesus Christ

Tomorrow would once have been the Feast of the Five Sacred Wounds of Our Lord Jesus Christ.  The Collect of the Feast would have been:

O God, who by the passion of thine only-begotten Son, and the shedding of his blood through his five wounds, hast renewed the nature of man that was ruined through sin; grant to us, we beseech thee, that as we venerate on earth the wounds that he received, so we may deserve to obtain the fruit of the same precious blood in heaven.
The Gospel of the Mass would have been John 19 28-35, and the Last Gospel would have been the proper for the Friday in the third week of Lent: John 4 5-41, the woman at the well which we heard in the OF last Sunday.
The propers for the third Friday of Lent would have been said after the propers of the Feast.
