Catholic Missal of the day: Monday, January 22 2024

Monday of the Third week in Ordinary Time

2nd book of Samuel


In those days, all the tribes of Israel came to David in Hebron and said: "Here we are, your bone and your flesh.
In days past, when Saul was our king, it was you who led the Israelites out and brought them back. And the LORD said to you, 'You shall shepherd my people Israel and shall be commander of Israel.'"
When all the elders of Israel came to David in Hebron, King David made an agreement with them there before the LORD, and they anointed him king of Israel.
David was thirty years old when he became king, and he reigned for forty years:
seven years and six months in Hebron over Judah, and thirty-three years in Jerusalem over all Israel and Judah.
Then the king and his men set out for Jerusalem against the Jebusites who inhabited the region. David was told, "You cannot enter here: the blind and the lame will drive you away!" which was their way of saying, "David cannot enter here."
But David did take the stronghold of Zion, which is the City of David.
David grew steadily more powerful, for the LORD of hosts was with him.



Once you spoke in vision;
to your faithful ones you said:
“On a champion I have placed a crown;
over the people I have set a youth.”
I have chosen David, my servant;
with my holy oil I have anointed him.
That my hand will be with him;
and that my arm will make him strong.
My loyalty and love will be with him;
through my name his horn will be exalted.
I will set his hand upon the sea,
his right hand upon the rivers.

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Mark


The scribes who had come from Jerusalem said of Jesus, "He is possessed by Beelzebul," and "By the prince of demons he drives out demons."
Summoning them, he began to speak to them in parables, "How can Satan drive out Satan?
If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand.
And if a house is divided against itself, that house will not be able to stand.
And if Satan has risen up against himself and is divided, he cannot stand; that is the end of him.
But no one can enter a strong man's house to plunder his property unless he first ties up the strong man. Then he can plunder his house.
Amen, I say to you, all sins and all blasphemies that people utter will be forgiven them.
But whoever blasphemes against the holy Spirit will never have forgiveness, but is guilty of an everlasting sin."
For they had said, "He has an unclean spirit."

St. Vincent(Deacon and Martyr (+ 304))

SAINT VINCENT Deacon and Martyr (+ 304) St. Vincent was the archdeacon of the church in Saragossa. The bishop, Valerian, had a speech impediment, so St. Vincent preached in his stead. When Diocletian's persecution erupted, they were both arrested and tried beforey Dacian. As punishment for being Christian, Valerian was banished and St. Vincent was sentenced to death by torture. First, St. Vincent was stretched on a rack; and when almost torn asunder, was mocked for resisting. Dacian then goaded his executioners to intensify the torture. St. Vincent's flesh was torn with hooks. Later, he was fastened to a chair of red-hot iron. Afterward, lard and salt were rubbed into his wounds. Amidst the torture, St. Vincent kept his eyes raised to heaven. He was unshaken and burned with love for Jesus and Mary. He shared in the passion of Christ. St. Vincent was cast into a solitary dungeon with his feet in the stocks. Miraculously, the angels of Christ illuminated the darkness and assured him that victory was near. After the apparitions, St. Vincent's wounds were tended to prepare him for fresh torture. The public was permitted to see his mangled body; and those who visited kissed him and carried away cloths dipped in his blood as relics.Before the tortures recommenced, St. Vincent's hour came, and he breathed forth his soul to God. The dead bodies of the saints are precious in the sight of God, and the hand of iniquity cannot touch them. A raven guarded the body of St. Vincent where it lay flung upon the earth. When his body was sunk out at sea, the waves carried it ashore; and his relics are preserved to this day at the Augustinian monastery in Lisbon.
