Catholic Missal of the day: Tuesday, January 9 2024

Tuesday of the First week in Ordinary Time

1st book of Samuel


Hannah rose after a meal at Shiloh, and presented herself before the LORD; at the time, Eli the priest was sitting on a chair near the doorpost of the LORD's temple.
In her bitterness she prayed to the LORD, weeping copiously,
and she made a vow, promising: "O LORD of hosts, if you look with pity on the misery of your handmaid, if you remember me and do not forget me, if you give your handmaid a male child, I will give him to the LORD for as long as he lives; neither wine nor liquor shall he drink, and no razor shall ever touch his head."
As she remained long at prayer before the LORD, Eli watched her mouth,
for Hannah was praying silently; though her lips were moving, her voice could not be heard. Eli, thinking her drunk,
said to her, "How long will you make a drunken show of yourself? Sober up from your wine!"
"It isn't that, my lord," Hannah answered. "I am an unhappy woman. I have had neither wine nor liquor; I was only pouring out my troubles to the LORD.
Do not think your handmaid a ne'er-do-well; my prayer has been prompted by my deep sorrow and misery."
Eli said, "Go in peace, and may the God of Israel grant you what you have asked of him."
She replied, "Think kindly of your maidservant," and left. She went to her quarters, ate and drank with her husband, and no longer appeared downcast.
Early the next morning they worshiped before the LORD, and then returned to their home in Ramah. When Elkanah had relations with his wife Hannah, the LORD remembered her.
She conceived, and at the end of her term bore a son whom she called Samuel, since she had asked the LORD for him.

1st book of Samuel


My heart exults in the LORD,
my horn is exalted in my God.
I have swallowed up my enemies;
I rejoice in my victory.
The bows of the mighty are broken,
while the tottering gird on strength.
The well-fed hire themselves out for bread,
while the hungry batten on spoil.
The barren wife bears seven sons,
while the mother of many languishes.
The LORD puts to death and gives life;
He casts down to the nether world;
He raises up again.
The LORD makes poor and makes rich,
He humbles, he also exalts.
He raises the needy from the dust;
from the dung heap he lifts up the poor,
to seat them with nobles
and make a glorious throne their heritage.

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.

Sts. Julian and Basilissa(Martyrs († c. 313))

Sts. JULIAN and BASILISSAMartyrs ( c. 313) Sts. Julian and Basilissa, though married, lived by mutual consent in perpetual chastity. They sanctified themselves through the norms of piety and asceticism; and used their revenue to relieve the suffering of the poor and the sick. They converted their house into a hospital, which at one time housed nearly a thousand people. In the hospital, Basilissa attended the women and Julian attended the men in separate quarters. From their charity, the couple were dubbed Hospitalarians. Egypt, where they lived, was abounding with examples of persons who, either in cities or deserts, devoted themselves to exercises of charity and piety. St. Basilissa, after enduring seven persecutions, died in peace. St. Julian survived her many years. He received the crown of martyrdom together with Celsus, a youth, Celsus' mother Marcianilla, Antony, a priest, and Anastasius. Many churches and hospitals in the East and especially in the West are named after one or another of these martyrs. Four churches in Rome and three out of five in Paris, which bear the name of St. Julian, were originally dedicated under the name of St. Julian the Hospitalarian and martyr. In the time of St. Gregory the Great, the skull of St. Julian was brought out of the East into France and given to Queen Brunehault. She gave it to the nunnery that she founded at Étampes. Today, part of St. Julian's skull is in the monastery of Morigny, near Étampes. The other part is in the church of the regular canonesses of St. Basilissa in Paris.
