Daily Reading

Reading I Nm 11:25-29 The LORD came down in the cloud and spoke to Moses. Taking some of the spirit that was on Moses, the LORD bestowed it on the seventy elders; and as the spirit came to rest on them, they prophesied. Now two men, one named Eldad and the other Medad, were not in the gathering but had been left in the camp. They too had been on the list, but had not gone out to the tent; yet the spirit came to rest on them also, and they prophesied in the camp. So, when a young man quickly told Moses, "Eldad and Medad are prophesying in the camp, " Joshua, son of Nun, who from his youth had been Moses’ aide, said, "Moses, my lord, stop them." But Moses answered him, "Are you jealous for my sake? Would that all the people of the LORD were prophets! Would that the LORD might bestow his spirit on them all!" Responsorial Psalm Ps 19:8, 10, 12-13, 14 R. (9a)    The precepts of the Lord give joy to the heart. The law of the LORD is perfect,     refreshing the soul; the decree of the LORD is trustworthy,     giving wisdom to the simple. R. The precepts of the Lord give joy to the heart. The fear of the LORD is pure,     enduring forever; the ordinances of the LORD are true,     all of them just. R. The precepts of the Lord give joy to the heart. Though your servant is careful of them,     very diligent in keeping them, Yet who can detect failings?     Cleanse me from my unknown faults! R. The precepts of the Lord give joy to the heart. From wanton sin especially, restrain your servant;     let it not rule over me. Then shall I be blameless and innocent     of serious sin.  R. The precepts of the Lord give joy to the heart. Reading II Jas 5:1-6 Come now, you rich, weep and wail over your impending miseries. Your wealth has rotted away, your clothes have become moth-eaten, your gold and silver have corroded, and that corrosion will be a testimony against you; it will devour your flesh like a fire. You have stored up treasure for the last days. Behold, the wages you withheld from the workers who harvested your fields are crying aloud; and the cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord of hosts. You have lived on earth in luxury and pleasure; you have fattened your hearts for the day of slaughter. You have condemned; you have murdered the righteous one; he offers you no resistance. Alleluia Cf. Jn 17:17b, 17a R. Alleluia, alleluia. Your word, O Lord, is truth; consecrate us in the truth. R. Alleluia, alleluia. Gospel Mk 9:38-43, 45, 47-48 At that time, John said to Jesus, "Teacher, we saw someone driving out demons in your name, and we tried to prevent him because he does not follow us." Jesus replied, "Do not… [Read more...]

God’s Kingdom Is Among You What attracts your heart? May I say that it is God’s love? But what is God’s love? It is not something vague, some generic feeling. God’s love has a name and a face: Jesus Christ. Love for God is made manifest in Jesus, the gift of the Father among us. It is a love that gives value and beauty to everything else; a love that gives strength to the family, to work, to study, to friendship, to art, to all human activity. It even gives meaning to negative experiences, because this love allows us to move beyond these experiences, to go beyond them, not to remain prisoners of evil, always opening us to hope. In this way all our labors and even our failures find meaning. —Pope Francis: Words of Grace
