Tuesday of the Third week in Ordinary Time

2nd book of Samuel


When it was reported to King David that the LORD had blessed the family of Obed-edom and all that belonged to him, David went to bring up the ark of God from the house of Obed-edom into the City of David amid festivities.
As soon as the bearers of the ark of the LORD had advanced six steps, he sacrificed an ox and a fatling.
Then David, girt with a linen apron, came dancing before the LORD with abandon,
as he and all the Israelites were bringing up the ark of the LORD with shouts of joy and to the sound of the horn.
The ark of the LORD was brought in and set in its place within the tent David had pitched for it. Then David offered holocausts and peace offerings before the LORD.
When he finished making these offerings, he blessed the people in the name of the LORD of hosts.
He then distributed among all the people, to each man and each woman in the entire multitude of Israel, a loaf of bread, a cut of roast meat, and a raisin cake. With this, all the people left for their homes.



Lift up, O gates, your lintels;
reach up, you ancient portals,
that the king of glory may come in!
Who is this king of glory?
The LORD, strong and mighty,
the LORD, mighty in battle.
Lift up, O gates, your lintels;
reach up, you ancient portals,
that the king of glory may come in!
Who is this king of glory?
The LORD of hosts; he is the king of glory.

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Mark


The mother of Jesus and his brothers arrived at the house. Standing outside, they sent word to Jesus and called him.
A crowd seated around him told him, "Your mother and your brothers (and your sisters) are outside asking for you."
But he said to them in reply, "Who are my mother and (my) brothers?"
And looking around at those seated in the circle he said, "Here are my mother and my brothers.
(For) whoever does the will of God is my brother and sister and mother."

St. Marianne Cope()

St. Marianne CopeReligious (1838 - 1918) Though leprosy scared off most people in Molokai, Hawaii, Mother Marianne responded to their needs with heroic generosity. Her courage helped tremendously to improve the lives of victims in Hawaii, a territory annexed to the United States in 1898. Mother Marianne’s generosity and courage were celebrated during her beatification on May 14, 2005. She was a woman who spoke “the language of truth and love,” said Cardinal José Saraiva Martins, prefect of the Congregation for Saints’ Causes. Her life was “a wonderful work of divine grace.” He also said about her special love for persons suffering from leprosy: “She saw in them the suffering face of Jesus. Like the Good Samaritan, she became their mother.” She was born on January 23, 1838, to Peter and Barbara Cope of Hessen-Darmstadt, Germany. She was named after her mother. Two years later, the Cope family immigrated to the United States and settled in Utica, New York. Young Barbara worked in a factory until August 1862 , when she went to the Sisters of the Third Order of Saint Francis in Syracuse, New York. After professing in November of the next year, she began teaching at Assumption parish school. Sr. Marianne held the post of superior in several places and was twice the novice mistress of her congregation. A natural leader, she was the superior of St. Joseph’s Hospital in Syracuse at three different times: learning what would be indispensable during her years in Hawaii. Mother Marrianne was elected provincial in 1877 and unanimously re-elected in 1881. Two years later, the Hawaiian government was searching for someone to run the Kakaako Receiving Station for people suspected of having leprosy. More than 50 religious communities in the United States and Canada were asked. When the request was put to the Syracuse sisters, 35 of them volunteered immediately. On October 22, 1883, Mother Marianne and six other sisters left for Hawaii, where they took charge of the Kakaako Receiving Station outside Honolulu. On the island of Maui, they opened a hospital and a school for girls. In 1888, Mother Marianne and two sisters went to Molokai to open a home for “unprotected women and girls.” The Hawaiian government was quite hesitant to send women for this difficult assignment. However, they underestimated Mother Marianne's courage and competency. On Molokai, she took charge of the home thatSt. Damien de Veuster [May 10, d. 1889] had established for men and boys. Mother Marianne changed life on Molokai by introducing medical best practices, pride and fun. Bright scarves and dresses for women were part of her approach. Mother Marianne was awarded the Royal Order of Kapiolani by the Hawaiian government and celebrated in a poem by Robert Louis Stevenson. Her sisters have attracted vocations among the Hawaiian people and still work on Molokai.In 2005, she was beatified by Pope Benedict XVI.St. Marianne was declared a saint on October 21, 2012.

St. John the Almoner(Patriarch of Alexandria (+ c. 620))

SAINT JOHN THE ALMONERPatriarch of Alexandria(+ c. 620) St. John was married, but when his wife and two children passed away, he answered God's call to lead a perfect life. He donated all his possessions and became known throughout the East as the Almoner. When he was consecrated patriarch of Alexandria, he told his servants to go into the city and bring him a list of the poor. They brought word that there were seventy-five hundred, and these he undertook to feed every day. On Wednesday and Friday every week, he sat on a bench in front of the church to hear the complaints of the needy and aggrieved. The awareness of death was ever before him; and he never spoke an idle word. He turned those out of church whom he saw talking; and he forbade unrepentant sinners from entering his house. He left seventy churches in Alexandria where he had found but seven. St. John passed away in Cyprus, his native place, around the year 620. His soul rejoices before God and Mary in heaven. He receives our prayers for intercession until the end of time.
