Catholic Missal of the day: Monday, July 10 2023

Monday of the Fourteenth week in Ordinary Time

Book of Genesis


Jacob departed from Beer-sheba and proceeded toward Haran.
When he came upon a certain shrine, as the sun had already set, he stopped there for the night. Taking one of the stones at the shrine, he put it under his head and lay down to sleep at that spot.
Then he had a dream: a stairway rested on the ground, with its top reaching to the heavens; and God's messengers were going up and down on it.
And there was the LORD standing beside him and saying: "I, the LORD, am the God of your forefather Abraham and the God of Isaac; the land on which you are lying I will give to you and your descendants.
These shall be as plentiful as the dust of the earth, and through them you shall spread out east and west, north and south. In you and your descendants all the nations of the earth shall find blessing.
Know that I am with you; I will protect you wherever you go, and bring you back to this land. I will never leave you until I have done what I promised you."
When Jacob awoke from his sleep, he exclaimed, "Truly, the LORD is in this spot, although I did not know it!"
In solemn wonder he cried out: "How awesome is this shrine! This is nothing else but an abode of God, and that is the gateway to heaven!"
Early the next morning Jacob took the stone that he had put under his head, set it up as a memorial stone, and poured oil on top of it.
He called that site Bethel, whereas the former name of the town had been Luz.
Jacob then made this vow: "If God remains with me, to protect me on this journey I am making and to give me enough bread to eat and clothing to wear,
and I come back safe to my father's house, the LORD shall be my God.
This stone that I have set up as a memorial stone shall be God's abode."



You who dwell in the shelter of the Most High,
who abide in the shadow of the Almighty,
Say to the LORD, "My refuge and my fortress,
my God, in whom I trust."
For he will rescue you from the snare of the fowler,
from the destroying pestilence.
With his pinions he will cover you,
and under his wings you shall take refuge.
Because he clings to me, I will deliver him;
I will set him on high because he acknowledges my name.
He shall call upon me, and I will answer him;
I will be with him in distress.

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Matthew


While Jesus was speaking, an official came forward, knelt down before him, and said, "My daughter has just died. But come, lay your hand on her, and she will live."
Jesus rose and followed him, and so did his disciples.
A woman suffering hemorrhages for twelve years came up behind him and touched the tassel on his cloak.
She said to herself, "If only I can touch his cloak, I shall be cured."
Jesus turned around and saw her, and said, "Courage, daughter! Your faith has saved you." And from that hour the woman was cured.
When Jesus arrived at the official's house and saw the flute players and the crowd who were making a commotion,
he said, "Go away! The girl is not dead but sleeping." And they ridiculed him.
When the crowd was put out, he came and took her by the hand, and the little girl arose.
And news of this spread throughout all that land.

Sts. Rufina & Secunda(Virgins and Martyrs (3rd century))

SAINTS RUFINA AND SECUND Virgins and Martyrs(3rd century°) Rufina and Secunda were Roman sisters and virgins. They declined marriage to Armentarius and Verinusto better serve Christ. Rufina and Secunda were arrested during the reign of the Emperors Valerian and Gallienus. They remained indifferent to the blandishments and threats of the prefect Junius. When Junius saw they could not be swayed, he had them tortured. Guarded by angels, Rufina and Secunda persevered in their holy resolution. They were beheaded at the tenth milestone on the Aurelien Way. Their bodies were buried by a matron named Plautilla on her estate outside the city; and their relics afterward enshrined in the basilica of Constantine, near the baptistry.

The Seven Holy Brothers & their mother St. Felicitas(Martyrs († c. 150))

THE SEVEN HOLY BROTHERS and ST. FELICITAS, their Mother Martyrs( c. 150) St. Felicitas and her seven sons were martyred at Rome by Emperor Antoninus. After her husband's passing, Felicitas continued praying, fasting and her works of charity. She and her family edified others, with the result that many idolaters encountered and received faith in Jesus Christ. Due to jealousy at the propagation of Christianity, pagan priests complained to the Emperor that Felicitas was drawing many away from Roman cults. Hence the need to sacrifice her and her seven children. To please out of human respect,Publius, the prefect, arrested St. Felicitas and her seven sons. Publius asked Felicitas to spare her children from torture, saying, "Take pity on your children ... they are in the bloom of youth and may aspire to the greatest honors and preferments." Felicitas replied, "Your pity shows lack of belief." Turning towards her children, she said, "My sons, look up to heaven where Jesus Christ with his Saints expects you. Courage!" Publius, exasperated at this behavior, commanded Felicitas to be cruelly beaten. He then called her children to him one by one and offered many vanities and deceptions, along with promises and threats. When all seven brothers rejected idolatry and delared their love for Jesus, they were scourged. Later on, Antoninus ordered that they should be sent to different judges and condemned to different deaths. The first brother, Januarius, was scourged to death with whips loaded with leaden plummets. The next two, Felix and Philip, were beaten to death with clubs. The fourth, Sylvanus, was thrown down a steep precipice. The three youngest, Alexander, Vitalis and Martialis, were beheaded. Last of all, Felicitas was beheaded: 4 months after her childrens' martyrdom.
