Catholic Missal of the day: Tuesday, July 11 2023

Tuesday of the Fourteenth week in Ordinary Time

Book of Genesis


In the course of the night, Jacob arose, took his two wives, with the two maidservants and his eleven children, and crossed the ford of the Jabbok.
After he had taken them across the stream and had brought over all his possessions,
Jacob was left there alone. Then some man wrestled with him until the break of dawn.
When the man saw that he could not prevail over him, he struck Jacob's hip at its socket, so that the hip socket was wrenched as they wrestled.
The man then said, "Let me go, for it is daybreak." But Jacob said, "I will not let you go until you bless me."
"What is your name?" the man asked. He answered, "Jacob."
Then the man said, "You shall no longer be spoken of as Jacob, but as Israel, because you have contended with divine and human beings and have prevailed."
Jacob then asked him, "Do tell me your name, please." He answered, "Why should you want to know my name?" With that, he bade him farewell.
Jacob named the place Peniel, "Because I have seen God face to face," he said, "yet my life has been spared."
At sunrise, as he left Penuel, Jacob limped along because of his hip.
That is why, to this day, the Israelites do not eat the sciatic muscle that is on the hip socket, inasmuch as Jacob's hip socket was struck at the sciatic muscle.



Hear, O LORD, a just suit;
attend to my outcry;
hearken to my prayer from lips without deceit.
From you let my judgment come;
Your eyes behold what is right.
Though you test my heart, searching it in the night,
though you try me with fire, you shall find no malice in me.
I call upon you, for you will answer me, O God;
incline your ear to me; hear my word.
Show your wondrous mercies,
O savior of those who flee from their foes
Hide me in the shadow of your wings.
I in justice shall behold your face;
on waking I shall be content in your presence.

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Matthew


A demoniac who could not speak was brought to Jesus,
and when the demon was driven out the mute person spoke. The crowds were amazed and said, "Nothing like this has ever been seen in Israel."
But the Pharisees said, "He drives out demons by the prince of demons."
Jesus went around to all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom, and curing every disease and illness.
At the sight of the crowds, his heart was moved with pity for them because they were troubled and abandoned, like sheep without a shepherd.
Then he said to his disciples, "The harvest is abundant but the laborers are few;
so ask the master of the harvest to send out laborers for his harvest."

St. Benedict(Abbot (c. 480-547), Patron of Europe)

SAINT BENEDICTAbbot(c. 480-547) St. Benedict was born to a noble Italian family around 480. As a boy, he was sent to Rome and placed in public school. He was appalled by the licentiousness of the Roman youth, and retreated to the desert mountains of Subiaco, where the Holy Spirit guided him to a deep cave. There, he made his abode and contemplated Jesus' life through the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Benedict lived in Subiaco for three years. He was unknown except to Romanus, a holy monk, who brought him food and clothed him with a monastic habit. Discerning the divine will through vigils, listening, and meditating on the mystery of death, Benedict's faith-expression was unique. He thus became the father of Western monasticism. Benedict's commitment to God saw him become the abbot of a monastery. As the mirror of Christ, he reflected the image of God to everyone he met. In time, Benedict had many disciples. Unfortunately, some of them grew disenchanted with his inspired, but rigorous guidance. One of them mixed poison with Benedict's drink. When Benedict made the sign of the cross over it, the vessel shattered. This miracles was one of many during St. Benedict's life. After building twelve monasteries at Subiaco, Benedict founded an abbey in Monte Casino, where he wrote his Benedictine Rule. Guided by the will of God through prayer, Benedict wrought miracles, saw visions and prophesied. A peasant, whose son had died, ran to Benedict crying, "Give me back my son!" Benedict replied, "Such miracles are not for me to work, but for the blessed apostles. Why will you lay a burden upon me which my weakness cannot bear?" Moved at length by compassion, Benedict knelt and prostrated himself upon the dead child. Rising, he said in a loud voice, "Behold not, O Lord, my sins, but the faith of this man, who desires the life of his son, and restore to the body that soul which you have taken." Hardly had he spoken when the child's body began to tremble; and taking the child's hand, Benedict gave him alive to his father.If God so listened to Benedict in life, how much more will God listen when Benedict sees God face to face? Six days before his death, Benedict ordered his grave to be opened, and then fell ill of a fever. On the sixth day, he requested to be borne to the chapel. After receiving the Eucharist with hands uplifted, leaning on one of his disciples, he calmly passed away, on March 21, 547.Pope Paul VI proclaimed Benedict patron of Europe on October 24, 1964 (Apostolic Letter: Pacis nuntius).
