Christmas Weekday (January 6th)

First Letter of John


Beloved: Who indeed is the victor over the world but the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?
This is the one who came through water and blood, Jesus Christ, not by water alone, but by water and blood. The Spirit is the one that testifies, and the Spirit is truth.
So there are three that testify,
the Spirit, the water, and the blood, and the three are of one accord.
If we accept human testimony, the testimony of God is surely greater. Now the testimony of God is this, that he has testified on behalf of his Son.
Whoever believes in the Son of God has this testimony within himself. Whoever does not believe God has made him a liar by not believing the testimony God has given about his Son.
And this is the testimony: God gave us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.
Whoever possesses the Son has life; whoever does not possess the Son of God does not have life.
I write these things to you so that you may know that you have eternal life, you who believe in the name of the Son of God.



Glorify the LORD, O Jerusalem;
praise your God, O Zion.
For he has strengthened the bars of your gates;
he has blessed your children within you.
He has granted peace in your borders;
with the best of wheat he fills you.
He sends forth his command to the earth;
swiftly runs his word!
He has proclaimed his word to Jacob,
his statutes and his ordinances to Israel.
He has not done thus for any other nation;
his ordinances he has not made known to them. Alleluia

St. Andre Bessette(C.S.C. (1845-1937))

Saint Brother André BessetteC.SC.(1845-1937) Brother André was born Alfred Bessette on August 9, 1845, in Quebec, Canada. By the age of 12, André and his siblings were orphans. Their mother had died of tuberculosis and their father had died in a lumbering accident three years earlier. Though he was barely able to read or write, André was forced to leave school and learn a trade. For 13 years, he labored in various industries despite his own frail health. In 1870, André entered the Congregation of Holy Cross and was assigned as the doorkeeper of the community's high school in Montreal. There, he welcomed the sick and suffering and encouraged them to pray to Saint Joseph, to whom the Holy Cross Brothers were dedicated by their founder, the Venerable Basil Moreau, C.S.C. Brother André's visitors often found that they had been healed of their illnesses and received other spiritual favors. Brother André became known as the miracle man of Montreal, but he always gave the credit to Saint Joseph. So many people came to call on Brother André that he built a small chapel to Saint Joseph across the street from the school. Through his determination, prayers and the generosity of friends, the great Oratory of Saint Joseph began to rise on Mount Royal. Today, millions of visitors come to the Oratory and pray to Saint Joseph and Blessed Brother André. Brother André passed away on January 6, 1937, at the age of 92. This man of prayer was so beloved that more than a million people attended his funeral in a snowstorm. His body lies in the beautiful basilica he built to honor St. Joseph. Brother André was beatified by Pope John Paul II on May 23, 1982. In his homily that day, the Holy Father said this of Brother André:"A daily crowd of the sick, the afflicted, the poor of all kinds - those who were handicapped or wounded by life - came to him. They found in his presence a welcome ear, comfort and faith in God. Do not the poor of today have as much need of such love, of such hope, of such education in prayer?" Saint Brother André was canonized by Pope Benedict XVI on October 17, 2010. He reigns with Jesus and Mary alongside St. Joseph. He receives our prayers for intercession and gives them to God with perfect virtue.
