Catholic Missal of the day: Saturday, July 1 2023

Saturday of the Twelfth week in Ordinary Time

Book of Genesis


The LORD appeared to Abraham by the terebinth of Mamre, as he sat in the entrance of his tent, while the day was growing hot.
Looking up, he saw three men standing nearby. When he saw them, he ran from the entrance of the tent to greet them; and bowing to the ground,
he said: "Sir, if I may ask you this favor, please do not go on past your servant.
Let some water be brought, that you may bathe your feet, and then rest yourselves under the tree.
Now that you have come this close to your servant, let me bring you a little food, that you may refresh yourselves; and afterward you may go on your way." "Very well," they replied, "do as you have said."
Abraham hastened into the tent and told Sarah, "Quick, three seahs of fine flour! Knead it and make rolls."
He ran to the herd, picked out a tender, choice steer, and gave it to a servant, who quickly prepared it.
Then he got some curds and milk, as well as the steer that had been prepared, and set these before them; and he waited on them under the tree while they ate.
"Where is your wife Sarah?" they asked him. "There in the tent," he replied.
One of them said, "I will surely return to you about this time next year, and Sarah will then have a son."
Now Abraham and Sarah were old, advanced in years, and Sarah had stopped having her womanly periods.
So Sarah laughed to herself and said, "Now that I am so withered and my husband is so old, am I still to have sexual pleasure?"
But the LORD said to Abraham: "Why did Sarah laugh and say, 'Shall I really bear a child, old as I am?'
Is anything too marvelous for the LORD to do? At the appointed time, about this time next year, I will return to you, and Sarah will have a son."
Because she was afraid, Sarah dissembled, saying, "I didn't laugh." But he said, "Yes you did."

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Luke


Mary said: "My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord;
my spirit rejoices in God my savior.
For he has looked with favor on his lowly servant;
from this day all generations will call me blessed.
The Almighty has done great things for me,
and holy is his name.
He has mercy on those who fear him
in every generation.
He has filled the hungry with good things;
and the rich he has sent away empty.
He has come to the help of his servant Israel ,
remembering his promise of mercy,
The promise he made to our fathers,
to Abraham and to his descendants forever."

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Matthew


When Jesus entered Capernaum, a centurion approached him and appealed to him,
saying, "Lord, my servant is lying at home paralyzed, suffering dreadfully."
He said to him, "I will come and cure him."
The centurion said in reply, "Lord, I am not worthy to have you enter under my roof; only say the word and my servant will be healed.
For I too am a person subject to authority, with soldiers subject to me. And I say to one, 'Go,' and he goes; and to another, 'Come here,' and he comes; and to my slave, 'Do this,' and he does it."
When Jesus heard this, he was amazed and said to those following him, "Amen, I say to you, in no one in Israel have I found such faith.
I say to you, many will come from the east and the west, and will recline with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob at the banquet in the kingdom of heaven."
but the children of the kingdom will be driven out into the outer darkness, where there will be wailing and grinding of teeth."
And Jesus said to the centurion, "You may go; as you have believed, let it be done for you." And at that very hour (his) servant was healed.
Jesus entered the house of Peter, and saw his mother-in-law lying in bed with a fever.
He touched her hand, the fever left her, and she rose and waited on him.
When it was evening, they brought him many who were possessed by demons, and he drove out the spirits by a word and cured all the sick,
to fulfill what had been said by Isaiah the prophet: "He took away our infirmities and bore our diseases."

St. Junípero Serra Ferrer(O.F.M.)

Junípero Serra Ferrer, O.F.M. (November 24, 1713– August 28, 1784) Junípero Serra Ferrer, OFMwas a Spanish Franciscan friar who founded a mission in Baja California, and the first nine of twenty-one Spanish missions in California from San Diego to San Francisco.He began in San Diego on July 16, 1769, and established his headquarters near Monterey, California, at Mission San Carlos Borromeo de Carmelo. The missions were for the indigenous Nations. They aimed to integrate neophytes into Spanish society and train them to take over ownership and management of the land. As head of the order in California, Serra not only dealt with church officials, but also with Spanish officials in Mexico City and with the local military officers who commanded the nearby presidios (garrisons). Fr. Serra was beatified by Pope John Paul II on September 25, 1988. He was canonized by Pope Francis on September 2015 during the Pope's first visit to the United States.

Bl. Antonio Rosmini()

Blessed. Antonio RosminiPriest, Founder of the Institute of Charity(1797-1855) Antonio Rosmini was born on March 24, 1797. He was baptized the next day thanks to his parents, Pier Modesto and Giovanna dei Conti Formenti di Riva. Antonio was raised at Rovereto, a very "Italian" town, which had been part of the Austrian Empire since 1509. In 1816, Antonio enrolled at the University of Padua, Italy, where he received doctorates in theology and canon law. After his studies, he returned to Rovereto to prepare for Holy Orders. In February 1820, Antonio accompanied his sister, Margherita, to Verona, where the Marquess Maddalena of Canossa (now Blessed) had founded a religious institute. During the visit, Maddalena invited Antonio to found a male religious institute as a twin to her own institute. While the young man politely declined, her invitation in time proved prophetic. Antonio was ordained a priest on April 21, 1821, at Chioggia, Italy. In 1823, he travelled to Rome with the Patriarch of Venice, who arranged an audience for him with Pope Pius VII. In that audience, the Pontiff encouraged him to undertake the reform of philosophy. In 1826, Fr. Antonio went to Milan to continue his research and publish the results of his philosophical studies. He wrote on many subjects, including the origin of ideas and certitude, the nature of the human soul, ethics, the relationship between Church and State, the philosophy of law, metaphysics, grace, original sin, the sacraments and education. On Ash Wednesday, February 20, 1828, Fr. Rosmini withdrew to write the Constitutions of the budding Institute of Charity, in which he incorporated the principle of passivity (to be concerned with one's personal sanctification until God's will manifests itself to undertake some external work of charity) and the principle of impartiality (to free one of any personal preference in assuming a work of charity). To assure himself of God's will in his philosophical and foundational work, Fr. Rosmini went to Rome a second time in November 1828, and there received Pope Leo XII's support. On May 15, 1829, he met with the new pope, Pius VIII, who confirmed his double mission as philosopher and founder. During this visit to Rome, Fr. Rosmini published "Maxims of Christian Perfection" and "Origin of Ideas," winning the admiration of many scholars. By 1832, the Institute of Charity had spread to Northern Italy; and by 1835, it reached England, where the community enjoyed substantial growth. In England, the Rosminians are credited with introducing the use of the Roman collar and cassock and the practice of wearing the religious habit in public. They were known for preaching missions, the practice of the Forty Hours, May devotions, the use of the scapular, novena celebrations, public processions and the blessing of throats on the feast of St. Blaise. Pope Gregory XVI approved the Constitutions of the Institute of Charity on December 20, 1838. On March 25, 1839, vows were taken by twenty Italian and six British priests. On September 20, 1839, Fr. Rosmini was appointed provost general for life. This happy period of growth and apostolic success, however, was tempered by opposition to his intellectual and philosophical writings from 1826 until his death. Primarily, his "Treatise on Moral Conscience" (1839) led to a sharp, 15-year controversy, which required more than one Papal injunction to silence the "Rosminian Question." Another important, controversial work was "The Five Wounds of the Church" (1832). Fr. Rosmini found himself wedged between the obligation to renew Catholic philosophy and finding his works on the Index. His obedience to the Church was admirable: "In everything, I want to base myself on the authority of the Church, and I want the whole world to know that I adhere to this authority alone" (Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, "Note on the Force of the Doctrinal Decrees", L'Osservatore Romano English edition [ORE], 25 July 2001, p. 9). To close the issue definitively, the Pontiff submitted all Rosmini's works to examination by the Congregation of the Index. On July 3, 1854, it was decreed: "All the works of Antonio Rosmini-Serbati that have recently been examined are to be dismissed, and this examination in no way detracts from the good name of the author, nor of the religious Society founded by him, nor from his life and singular merits towards the Church" (R. Malone, "Historical Overview of the Rosmini Case", ORE, 25 July 2001, p. 10). Fr. Rosmini was vindicated and his writings acknowledged as good. Less than a year after this Decree, Fr. Antonio Rosmini passed away on July 1, 1855, at Stresa, Italy, at age 58.

St. Gal(Bishop (c. 489-553))

SAINT GALBishop(c. 489-553) St. Gal was born at Clermont, in Auvergne, France, about the year 489. His father was a nobleman and his mother was from the family of Vettius Apagatus, a celebrated Roman who suffered for Christ at Lyons. They took special care of Gal's education and arranged his marriage to a senator's daughter when he came of age. Young Gal had other plans for his life. He withdrew to the monastery of Cournon near the city of Auvergne and sought admition to be a monk. Soon, he obtained his parents' consent; and joyfully renounced all worldly dignities and embraced religious poverty. At Cournon, his eminent virtues distinguished him. Soon, he was recommended to Quintianus, Bishop of Auvergne, who consecrated him with holy orders. When Quintianus passed away in 527, Fr. Gal was appointed to succeed him. In this new character, Bp. Gal's humility was tested and the image of Christ clearly shined. Once, he was struck on the head by a brutal man, but discovered neither anger or resentment. Instead, Bp. Gal's meekness diffused his attacker's rage. Another time, Evodius, a senator who became a priest, forgot himself and insulted Bp. Gal.The Saint, without making the least reply, arose meekly from his seat and went to visit the churches of the city. Evodius was so moved by this conduct that he cast himself at the Saint's feet in broad daylight, asking for pardon in the middle of the street. From that time, they were the most cordial friends. Bp. Gal passed away about the year 553. He was favored with the gift of miracles. Upon his death, our Lord welcomed him to eternity. Regining with Christ and the saints, our Bishop listens to prayers and intercedes for us forever.
