Catholic Missal of the day: Saturday, February 10 2024

Saturday of the Fifth week in Ordinary Time

1st book of Kings


Jeroboam thought to himself: "The kingdom will return to David's house.
If now this people go up to offer sacrifices in the temple of the LORD in Jerusalem, the hearts of this people will return to their master, Rehoboam, king of Judah, and they will kill me."
After taking counsel, the king made two calves of gold and said to the people: "You have been going up to Jerusalem long enough. Here is your God, O Israel, who brought you up from the land of Egypt."
And he put one in Bethel, the other in Dan.
This led to sin, because the people frequented these calves in Bethel and in Dan.
He also built temples on the high places and made priests from among the people who were not Levites.
Jeroboam established a feast in the eighth month on the fifteenth day of the month to duplicate in Bethel the pilgrimage feast of Judah, with sacrifices to the calves he had made; and he stationed in Bethel priests of the high places he had built.
Jeroboam did not give up his evil ways after this event, but again made priests for the high places from among the common people. Whoever desired it was consecrated and became a priest of the high places.
This was a sin on the part of the house of Jeroboam for which it was to be cut off and destroyed from the earth.



We have sinned, we and our fathers;
we have committed crimes; we have done wrong.
Our fathers in Egypt
considered not your wonders.
At Horeb they fashioned a calf,
worshiped a metal statue.
They exchanged their glory
for the image of a grass-eating bullock.
They forgot the God who had saved them,
who had done great deeds in Egypt,
Wondrous deeds in the land of Ham,
terrible things at the Red Sea.

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Mark


In those days when there again was a great crowd without anything to eat, Jesus summoned the disciples and said,
My heart is moved with pity for the crowd, because they have been with me now for three days and have nothing to eat.
If I send them away hungry to their homes, they will collapse on the way, and some of them have come a great distance."
His disciples answered him, "Where can anyone get enough bread to satisfy them here in this deserted place?"
Still he asked them, "How many loaves do you have?" "Seven," they replied.
He ordered the crowd to sit down on the ground. Then, taking the seven loaves he gave thanks, broke them, and gave them to his disciples to distribute, and they distributed them to the crowd.
They also had a few fish. He said the blessing over them and ordered them distributed also.
They ate and were satisfied. They picked up the fragments left over--seven baskets.
There were about four thousand people. He dismissed them
and got into the boat with his disciples and came to the region of Dalmanutha.

St. Scholastica(Abbess (+ c. 543))

SAINT SCHOLASTICA Abbess (+ c. 543) Saint Scholastica is the sister of St. Benedict, the patron saint of Europe. She founded and governed a numerous community near Monte Casino. St. Gregory wrote that she loved God since childhood; and that her pure soul went to God in the likeness of a dove. St. Benedict visited St. Scholastica every year. Alban Butler wrote, "she could not be sated or wearied with the words of grace which flowed from his lips." During his last visit, St. Scholastica knew that her end was near and said, "My brother, leave me not, but discourse with me till dawn on the bliss of those who see God in heaven." St. Benedict would not break his rule at the bidding of natural affection. A violent storm then arose and prevented him from leaving. Hence, they passed the night in heavenly conversation. Three days later, St. Benedict saw St. Scholastica's soul rising to Heaven in the likeness of a dove. To commemorate her life, St. Scholastica's spiritual daughters and St. Benedict's monks offered Holy Mass. Her body was borne to Monte Casino and placed in a tomb that St. Benedict had prepared for himself. She intercedes at the right hand of God until the end of time.
