Catholic Missal of the day: Monday, April 1 2024

Monday of Easter week

Acts of the Apostles


Then Peter stood up with the Eleven, raised his voice, and proclaimed: "You who are Jews, indeed all of you staying in Jerusalem. Let this be known to you, and listen to my words.
You who are Israelites, hear these words. Jesus the Nazorean was a man commended to you by God with mighty deeds, wonders, and signs, which God worked through him in your midst, as you yourselves know.
This man, delivered up by the set plan and foreknowledge of God, you killed, using lawless men to crucify him.
But God raised him up, releasing him from the throes of death, because it was impossible for him to be held by it.
For David says of him: 'I saw the Lord ever before me, with him at my right hand I shall not be disturbed.
Therefore my heart has been glad and my tongue has exulted; my flesh, too, will dwell in hope,
because you will not abandon my soul to the netherworld, nor will you suffer your holy one to see corruption.
You have made known to me the paths of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence.'
My brothers, one can confidently say to you about the patriarch David that he died and was buried, and his tomb is in our midst to this day.
But since he was a prophet and knew that God had sworn an oath to him that he would set one of his descendants upon his throne,
he foresaw and spoke of the resurrection of the Messiah, that neither was he abandoned to the netherworld nor did his flesh see corruption.
God raised this Jesus; of this we are all witnesses.
Exalted at the right hand of God, he received the promise of the holy Spirit from the Father and poured it forth, as you (both) see and hear.



Keep me, O God, for in you I take refuge;
I say to the LORD, "My Lord are you."
O LORD, my allotted portion and my cup,
you it is who hold fast my lot.
I bless the LORD who counsels me;
even in the night my heart exhorts me.
I set the LORD ever before me;
with him at my right hand I shall not be disturbed.
Therefore my heart is glad and my soul rejoices,
my body, too, abides in confidence
because you will not abandon my soul to the netherworld,
nor will you suffer your faithful one to undergo corruption.
You will show me the path to life,
fullness of joys in your presence,
the delights at your right hand forever.

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Matthew


Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went away quickly from the tomb, fearful yet overjoyed, and ran to announce the news to his disciples.
And behold, Jesus met them on their way and greeted them. They approached, embraced his feet, and did him homage.
Then Jesus said to them, "Do not be afraid. Go tell my brothers to go to Galilee, and there they will see me."
While they were going, some of the guard went into the city and told the chief priests all that had happened.
They assembled with the elders and took counsel; then they gave a large sum of money to the soldiers,
telling them, "You are to say, 'His disciples came by night and stole him while we were asleep.'
And if this gets to the ears of the governor, we will satisfy (him) and keep you out of trouble."
The soldiers took the money and did as they were instructed. And this story has circulated among the Jews to the present (day).

St. Hugh(Bishop (1053-1132))

SAINT HUGH Bishop (1053-1132) St. Hugh was born in Chateau-neuf, the territory of Valence, in Dauphiné. He received faith from the example, instruction and prayers of his parents. He excelled at studies by relying on the will of God and applying himself diligently and consistently. Hugh matured and discerned his vocation to serve God in an ecclesiastical state. In the process, he accepted a canonry in the cathedral of Valence. Hugh's father Odilo served in the army. He labored to make his soldiers faithful servants of their Creator and restrained vice through regulations and punishments. At the advice of his son, he became a Carthusian monk. He passed away at the age of 100 after receiving Extreme Unction and Viaticum from Hugh. Hugh likewise assisted his mother during her last moments. Hugh's reliance on the will of God disposed him to receive many graces during his canonry at the cathedral of Valence. In the process of becoming a saint, he was consecrated bishop of Grenoble. He then set to work reproving vice and enacting reforms. In a short time, his diocese was modeled on God's love through Jesus. After two years, he privately resigned: presuming on the tacit consent of the Holy See. Putting on the habit of St. Bennet, he began a novitiate in the austere abbey of Casa-Dei in Auvergne. After one year, Pope Gregory VII commanded him, in virtue of holy obedience, to resume his pastoral charge. Hugh solicited Pope Innocent II for permission to resign his bishopric and pass away in solitude, but was denied. God purified Hugh with a lingering illness before he passed away. Near the end, Hugh lost memory for everything except his prayers. St. Hugh closed his penitential course on April 1, 1132, two months before his eightieth birthday. He had spent the last 52 years serving as bishop. Miracles attested the sanctity of his happy death; and he was canonized by Innocent II in 1134.

St. Mary of Egypt(Hermit (c.344-421))

SAINT MARY OF EGYPTHermit(c. 344-421) At the tender age of 12, Mary left her father's house and sinned without restraint. For the next 17 years, she lived in Alexandria. When she once accompanied a pilgrimage to Jerusalem, she entangled many in grievous sin. When Mary was in Jerusalem during the Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross, she went with the crowd to a church containing the True Cross. The rest entered and adored, but Mary was invisibly held back. In that instant, her misery and uncleanliness dawned upon her. Turning to the Immaculate Mother, whose picture faced her in the porch, she vowed to do penance if she might enter and stand like Magdalene beside the Cross. She then entered the church and knelt by the Cross. On leaving, she knelt before Our Lady, and a voice came to her which said, "Pass over Jordan, and thou shalt find rest." Mary went into the wilderness and passed over Jordan. In 420 A.D., 47 years later, the Abbot Zosimus met her. She told him that for 17 years, the old songs and scenes haunted her, but she had perfect peace after that. At her request, Ab. Zosimus brought her the sacred body of Christ on Holy Thursday.She bade him return again after a year. When he returned the following year, he found that Mary had passed away. The Bollandists claim St. Mary passed away on April 1, 421. The Greek Church celebrates her feast on April 1, the Roman Martyrology assigns it to April 2 and the Roman Calendar to April 3. The Greek date is more likely to be correct; and the others may be due to the fact that on those days portions of her relics reached the West.
