Catholic Missal of the day: Wednesday, February 28 2024

Wednesday of the Second week of Lent

Book of Jeremiah


The people of Judah and the citizens of Jerusalem said, "Come, let us contrive a plot against Jeremiah. It will not mean the loss of instruction from the priests, nor of counsel from the wise, nor of messages from the prophets. And so, let us destroy him by his own tongue; let us carefully note his every word."
Heed me, O LORD, and listen to what my adversaries say.
Must good be repaid with evil that they should dig a pit to take my life? Remember that I stood before you to speak in their behalf, to turn away your wrath from them.



You will free me from the snare they set for me,
for you are my refuge.
Into your hands I commend my spirit;
You will redeem me, O LORD, O faithful God.
I hear the whispers of the crowd, that frighten me from every side,
as they consult together against me, plotting to take my life.
But my trust is in you, O LORD;
I say, "You are my God.
In your hands is my destiny; rescue me
from the clutches of my enemies and my persecutors."

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Matthew


As Jesus was going up to Jerusalem, he took the Twelve disciples aside by themselves, and said to them on the way,
Behold, we are going up to Jerusalem, and the Son of Man will be handed over to the chief priests and the scribes, and they will condemn him to death,
and hand him over to the Gentiles to be mocked and scourged and crucified, and he will be raised on the third day."
Then the mother of the sons of Zebedee approached him with her sons and did him homage, wishing to ask him for something.
He said to her, "What do you wish?" She answered him, "Command that these two sons of mine sit, one at your right and the other at your left, in your kingdom."
Jesus said in reply, "You do not know what you are asking. Can you drink the cup that I am going to drink?" They said to him, "We can."
He replied, "My cup you will indeed drink, but to sit at my right and at my left, this is not mine to give but is for those for whom it has been prepared by my Father."
When the ten heard this, they became indignant at the two brothers.
But Jesus summoned them and said, "You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and the great ones make their authority over them felt.
But it shall not be so among you. Rather, whoever wishes to be great among you shall be your servant;
whoever wishes to be first among you shall be your slave.
Just so, the Son of Man did not come to be served but to serve and to give his life as a ransom for many."

Bl. Daniel Brottier(Priest (1876-1936))

Blessed Daniel Brottier Priest (1876-1936) Bl. Daniel Brottier was a French Spiritan. He was born in 1876 and ordained to the priestood in 1899. To spead the Gospel beyond France's classrooms and borders, Fr. Daniel joined the Spiritan Congregation. Fr. Daniel was sent to Senegal, West Africa. After eight years, his health deteriorated and he returned to France. There, he helped raise funds for the construction of a new cathedral in Senegal. When World War I broke out, Fr. Daniel became a volunteer chaplain. He attributed his survival on the front lines to the intercession of Saint Therese of Lisieux. When she was canonized, he built a chapel for her in Auteuil. After the war, Fr. Daniel established a project for orphans and abandoned children. The Orphan Apprentices of Auteuil, which began in the suburbs of Paris, serves the French people to this day. Fr. Daniel gave up his soul to God on February 28, 1936. He was beatified in 1984 by Pope John Paul II.

Sts. Romanus & Lupicinus(Abbots (5th century))

SAINTS ROMANUS and LUPICINUS Abbots (5th century) When he was 35, Romaus left his relatives to spend time at the monastery of Ainay in Lyons, a great church at the conflux of the Saône and Rhone. Many martyrs were lynched and immolated there by pagans. Their ashes were kept as a reminder that charity and love triumph over sin and death. After completing his novitiate, Romanus retired to the forests of Mount Jura between France and Switzerland. He fixed his abode at a place called Condate, at the conflux of the rivers Bienne and Aliere. He found a spot of ground fit for cultivation and trees bearing wild fruit. He spent his time praying, reading and laboring for his sustenance. Lupicinus, his brother, came later with disciples. They were followed by several more who were drawn to the brothers' virtues and miracles. As their numbers increased, the brothers built several monasteries and a nunnery, called La Beaume, which no men could enter. Upon St. Romanus' passing, he was buried at La Beaume. Romanus and Lupicinus governed the monks jointly and in great harmony, though Lupicinus was more ascetic. Lupicinus did not sleep on a bed, but used a chair or a hard board. He never drank wine, and rarely poured even a drop of oil or milk on his pottage. During the summer, he subsisted on hard bread moistened in water, so that he could eat it with a spoon. His tunic was made of various skins of beasts sewn together with a cowl. He used wooden shoes and wore no stockings, unless obliged to go out of the monastery. St. Romanus passed away about 460 A.D. St. Lupicinus survived him almost twenty years. They now live in heaven and intercede for causes of prayer, conversion and discipline.
