Catholic Missal of the day: Monday, February 19 2024

Monday of the First week of Lent

Book of Leviticus


The LORD said to Moses,
"Speak to the whole Israelite community and tell them: Be holy, for I, the LORD your God, am holy.
"You shall not steal. You shall not lie or speak falsely to one another.
You shall not swear falsely by my name, thus profaning the name of your God. I am the LORD.
"You shall not defraud or rob your neighbor. You shall not withhold overnight the wages of your day laborer.
You shall not curse the deaf, or put a stumbling block in front of the blind, but you shall fear your God. I am the LORD.
"You shall not act dishonestly in rendering judgment. Show neither partiality to the weak nor deference to the mighty, but judge your fellow men justly.
You shall not go about spreading slander among your kinsmen; nor shall you stand by idly when your neighbor's life is at stake. I am the LORD.
"You shall not bear hatred for your brother in your heart. Though you may have to reprove your fellow man, do not incur sin because of him.
Take no revenge and cherish no grudge against your fellow countrymen. You shall love your neighbor as yourself. I am the LORD."



The law of the LORD is perfect,
refreshing the soul;
The decree of the LORD is trustworthy,
giving wisdom to the simple.
The precepts of the LORD are right,
rejoicing the heart;
The command of the LORD is clear,
enlightening the eye.
The fear of the LORD is pure,
enduring forever;
The ordinances of the LORD are true,
all of them just.
Let the words of my mouth and the thought of my heart
find favor before you,
O LORD, my rock and my redeemer.

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Matthew


Jesus said to his disciples: "When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit upon his glorious throne,
and all the nations will be assembled before him. And he will separate them one from another, as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats.
He will place the sheep on his right and the goats on his left.
Then the king will say to those on his right, 'Come, you who are blessed by my Father. Inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.
For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, a stranger and you welcomed me,
naked and you clothed me, ill and you cared for me, in prison and you visited me.'
Then the righteous will answer him and say, 'Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink?
When did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you?
When did we see you ill or in prison, and visit you?'
And the king will say to them in reply, 'Amen, I say to you, whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me.'
Then he will say to those on his left, 'Depart from me, you accursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels.
For I was hungry and you gave me no food, I was thirsty and you gave me no drink,
a stranger and you gave me no welcome, naked and you gave me no clothing, ill and in prison, and you did not care for me.'
Then they will answer and say, 'Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or ill or in prison, and not minister to your needs?'
He will answer them, 'Amen, I say to you, what you did not do for one of these least ones, you did not do for me.'
And these will go off to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life."

St. Barbatus(Bishop († 682))

SAINT BARBATUS Bishop (+ 682) St. Barbatus was born in Benevento, Italy, toward the end of St. Gregory the Great's pontificate. Barbatus' parents educated him and taught him to cultivate supernatural virtues. His progress was so remarkable that he received Holy Orders as soon as the canons of the Church allowed it. Fr. Barbatus was employed by the bishop in preaching. However, his best efforts to reform a cadre of parishioners from St. Basil's in Morcona were met with slander and opposition. Not without difficulty, he withdrew his charitable endeavors among them. He returned to Benevento and resumed his ministry in the city. Benevento's citizens retained idolatrous practices and superstitions, which were endorsed by the duke, Prince Romuald. He was the son of Grimoald, the king of the Lombards, who had edified all Christians by his conversion. Unfortunately, Prince Romuald gave himself to venerating a golden viper. He also hung animal skins over a tree used in pagan ceremonies. Archers would superstitiously shoot the animal skins during public games. St. Barbatus preached zealously against superstition to rouse people's consciences. He foretold the distress of their city and the calamities it would suffer from Emperor Constans' invasion. After landing in Italy, Emperor Constans laid siege to Benevento. Ildebrand, the bishop of Benevento, passed away during the siege. After public tranquillity was restored, Fr. Barbatus was consecrated bishop on March 10, 663. Invested with the episcopal character, Bp. Barbatus abolished superstitions practices. In 680, he assisted in Pope Agatho's council in Rome. The following year, he assisted in the Sixth General Council held in Constantinople against the Monothelites. After the assembly, he passed away on February 29, 682. He was around 70 years old and had served as bishop for 19 years.
