Catholic Missal of the day: Sunday, January 28 2024

Fourth Sunday in Ordinary Time

Book of Deuteronomy


Moses spoke to all the people, saying: "A prophet like me will the LORD, your God, raise up for you from among your own kin; to him you shall listen.
This is exactly what you requested of the LORD, your God, at Horeb on the day of the assembly, when you said, 'Let us not again hear the voice of the LORD, our God, nor see this great fire any more, lest we die.'
And the LORD said to me, 'This was well said.
I will raise up for them a prophet like you from among their kinsmen, and will put my words into his mouth; he shall tell them all that I command him.
If any man will not listen to my words which he speaks in my name, I myself will make him answer for it.
But if a prophet presumes to speak in my name an oracle that I have not commanded him to speak, or speaks in the name of other gods, he shall die.'



Come, let us sing joyfully to the LORD;
let us acclaim the Rock of our salvation.
Let us come into his presence with thanksgiving;
let us joyfully sing psalms to him.
Come, let us bow down in worship;
let us kneel before the LORD who made us.
For he is our God,
And we are the people he shepherds, the flock he guides.
For he is our God,
and we are the people he shepherds, the flock he guides.
Oh, that today you would hear his voice:
Oh, that today you would hear his voice:
“Harden not your hearts as at Meribah,
as in the day of Massah in the desert,
Where your fathers tempted me;
they tested me though they had seen my works.”

First Letter to the Corinthians


Brothers and sisters: I should like you to be free of anxieties. An unmarried man is anxious about the things of the Lord, how he may please the Lord.
But a married man is anxious about the things of the world, how he may please his wife,
and he is divided. An unmarried woman or a virgin is anxious about the things of the Lord, so that she may be holy in both body and spirit. A married woman, on the other hand, is anxious about the things of the world, how she may please her husband.
I am telling you this for your own benefit, not to impose a restraint upon you, but for the sake of propriety and adherence to the Lord without distraction.

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Mark


Jesus came to Capernaum with his followers, and on the sabbath he entered the synagogue and taught.
The people were astonished at his teaching, for he taught them as one having authority and not as the scribes.
In their synagogue was a man with an unclean spirit;
he cried out, "What have you to do with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are--the Holy One of God!"
Jesus rebuked him and said, "Quiet! Come out of him!"
The unclean spirit convulsed him and with a loud cry came out of him.
All were amazed and asked one another, "What is this? A new teaching with authority. He commands even the unclean spirits and they obey him."
His fame spread everywhere throughout the whole region of Galilee.

St. Thomas Aquinas(Priest & Doctor of the Church (+ 1274) - Memorial)

SAINT THOMAS AQUINAS Priest and Doctor of the Church (c. 1225-1274) St. Thomas was born of noble parents in Aquino, Italy. At 19, he received the Dominican habit in Naples where he was studying. Disapproving of his vocation, St. Thomas' brothers seized him while he was on his way to Paris and held him fortwo years' captivity at their castle of Rocca-Secca. Despite the threats and stratagems of his brothers, and the tears and caresses of his mother and sisters, St. Thomas remained steadfast. While St. Thomas was confined at Rocca-Secca, his brothers endeavored to entrap him in sin, but the attempt only ended in his triumph of purity. Snatching from the hearth a burning brand, the Saint drove from his chamber a woman whom they had sent to seduce him. He then marked a cross upon the wall and knelt down to pray. He was immediately rapt in ecstasy; and an angel girded him with a cord in token of the gift of perpetual chastity that God had given him. The pain caused by the girdle was so sharp that St. Thomas uttered a piercing cry, which brought his guards into the room. He never told this grace to any one save Father Raynald, his confessor. Thus originated the Angelic Warfare Confraternity for purity and chastity. Having at length escaped, St. Thomas went to Cologne and studied under Blessed Albert the Great. Afterward, he taught philosophy and theology in Paris for many years. The Church venerates St. Thomas' numerous writings as a treasure-house of sacred doctrine. His synthesis of Greek philosophy and Western theology defined both nature and substance and applied it to God and Jesus Christ. In naming St. Thomas the Angelic Doctor, the Church has indicated that his science is more divine than human. In him, the rarest gifts of intellect were combined with the tenderest piety. Prayer, he said, had taught him more than study. St. Thomas' singular devotion to the Blessed Sacrament shines forth in the Office and hymns for Corpus Christi, which he composed. To the words miraculously uttered by a crucifix at Naples, "Well hast thou written concerning Me, Thomas. What shall I give thee as a reward?" He replied, "Naught save Thyself, O Lord." He received a vision of etenity so clear that he could no longer write afterward. His life now talked more than his words. He passed away at Fossa-Nuova in 1274 while on his way to the General Council of Lyons where Pope Gregory X had summoned him.
