Catholic Missal of the day: Friday, February 9 2024

Friday of the Fifth week in Ordinary Time

1st book of Kings


At that time Jeroboam left Jerusalem, and the prophet Ahijah the Shilonite met him on the road. The two were alone in the area, and the prophet was wearing a new cloak.
Ahijah took off his new cloak, tore it into twelve pieces,
and said to Jeroboam: "Take ten pieces for yourself; the LORD, the God of Israel, says: 'I will tear away the kingdom from Solomon's grasp and will give you ten of the tribes.
One tribe shall remain to him for the sake of David my servant, and of Jerusalem, the city I have chosen out of all the tribes of Israel.
and Israel went into rebellion against David's house to this day.



"There shall be no strange god among you
nor shall you worship any alien god.
I, the LORD, am your God
who led you forth from the land of Egypt."
But my people did not listen to my words;
Israel did not obey me.
So I gave them up to the hardness of their hearts;
they walked according to their own counsels."
"If only my people would hear me,
and Israel walk in my ways,
Quickly would I humble their enemies;
against their foes I would turn my hand."

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Mark


Jesus left the district of Tyre and went by way of Sidon to the Sea of Galilee, into the district of the Decapolis.
And people brought to him a deaf man who had a speech impediment and begged him to lay his hand on him.
He took him off by himself away from the crowd. He put his finger into the man's ears and, spitting, touched his tongue;
then he looked up to heaven and groaned, and said to him, "Ephphatha!" (that is, "Be opened!")
And (immediately) the man's ears were opened, his speech impediment was removed, and he spoke plainly.
He ordered them not to tell anyone. But the more he ordered them not to, the more they proclaimed it.
They were exceedingly astonished and they said, "He has done all things well. He makes the deaf hear and (the) mute speak."

St. Apollonia(Virgin and Martyr (+ 249))

SAINT APOLLONIA Virgin and martyr and the Martyrs of Alexandria (+ 249) Metras was the first martyr of a persecution in Alexandria in 249. A mob pierced his eyes with reeds and stoned him to death. Quinta was the next victim. She was commanded to perform pagan rites at a temple and was stoned to death for refusing. Following these murders, the houses of Christians were vandalized and looted. St. Apollonia was an elderly virgin who was martyred in Alexandria. Her teeth were beaten out and she was led outside the city to be immolated. She was told to deny Christ; and after a moment's pause, leapt into the flames. After Decius' election the following year, a 15-year-old Alexandrian boy named Dioscorus was arrested and put on trial. He answered the judge wisely and remained steadfast under torture. His older companions were executed, but he was spared because of his age. "Dioscorus," wrote Bishop Dionysius, at this time, "remains with us, reserved for some longer and greater combat." Many Christians, pale and trembling, offered pagan sacrifice; but the judges were struck with horror at the multitudes who rushed to martyrdom. Women triumphed over torture till at last the judges were glad to execute them. The martyrs' shining courage and heroic virtues should inspire us to live ordinary moments with great love, supernatural motive and docility to the Holy Spirit.
