Catholic Missal of the day: Saturday, February 17 2024

Saturday after Ash Wednesday

Book of Isaiah


Thus says the LORD: If you remove from your midst oppression, false accusation and malicious speech;
If you bestow your bread on the hungry and satisfy the afflicted; Then light shall rise for you in the darkness, and the gloom shall become for you like midday.
Then the LORD will guide you always and give you plenty even on the parched land. He will renew your strength, and you shall be like a watered garden, like a spring whose water never fails.
The ancient ruins shall be rebuilt for your sake, and the foundations from ages past you shall raise up; "Repairer of the breach," they shall call you, "Restorer of ruined homesteads."
If you hold back your foot on the sabbath from following your own pursuits on my holy day; If you call the sabbath a delight, and the LORD'S holy day honorable; If you honor it by not following your ways, seeking your own interests, or speaking with malice--
Then you shall delight in the LORD, and I will make you ride on the heights of the earth; I will nourish you with the heritage of Jacob, your father, for the mouth of the LORD has spoken.



Incline your ear, O LORD; answer me,
for I am afflicted and poor.
Keep my life, for I am devoted to you;
save your servant who trusts in you.
You are my God.
Have mercy on me, O Lord,
for to you I call all the day.
Gladden the soul of your servant,
for to you, O Lord, I lift up my soul.
For you, O Lord, are good and forgiving,
abounding in kindness to all who call upon you.
Hearken, O LORD, to my prayer
and attend to the sound of my pleading.

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Luke


Jesus saw a tax collector named Levi sitting at the customs post. He said to him, "Follow me."
And leaving everything behind, he got up and followed him.
Then Levi gave a great banquet for him in his house, and a large crowd of tax collectors and others were at table with them.
The Pharisees and their scribes complained to his disciples, saying, "Why do you eat and drink with tax collectors and sinners?"
Jesus said to them in reply, "Those who are healthy do not need a physician, but the sick do.
I have not come to call the righteous to repentance but sinners."

Seven Founders of the Servite Order()

The Seven Holy Foundersof the Order of Servites Can you imagine seven prominent men from Boston or London leaving their homes and professions for religious life? That is what happened in the cultured and prosperous city of Florence in the middle of the 13th century. Though prosperous, the city was divided by political strife and the Cathari heresy. In 1240, seven noblemen of Florence, drawn together by friendship and devotion to the Blessed Virgin, gave themselves to common prayer and works of charity. Their call to serve God eventually led them to leave homes and businesses to form a community outside the city. Around the year 1245, they moved to Monte Senario for prayerful seclusion. Their initial difficulty was providing for their dependents, since two were still married and two were widowers. As others came to join them, they laid the foundations for the Servite Order, whose members would be committed to the service of the Church. They promised to follow Christ and witness the Gospel. They took the Blessed Virgin as their Lady and lived a communal life according to the Rule of St. Augustine. With help fromSt. Peter of Verona, O.P., this small group adopted the name "the Servants of Mary." Community members combined monastic life and active ministry. In the monastery, they led a life of prayer, work and silence. In the active apostolate, they engaged in parochial work: teaching, preaching and ministering. Pope Leo XIII canonized them as the Seven Founders of the Servite Order in 1888.
