Catholic Missal of the day: Wednesday, July 19 2023

Wednesday of the Fifteenth week in Ordinary Time

Book of Exodus


Moses was tending the flock of his father-in-law Jethro, the priest of Midian. Leading the flock across the desert, he came to Horeb, the mountain of God.
There an angel of the LORD appeared to him in fire flaming out of a bush. As he looked on, he was surprised to see that the bush, though on fire, was not consumed.
So Moses decided, "I must go over to look at this remarkable sight, and see why the bush is not burned."
When the LORD saw him coming over to look at it more closely, God called out to him from the bush, "Moses! Moses!" He answered, "Here I am."
God said, "Come no nearer! Remove the sandals from your feet, for the place where you stand is holy ground.
I am the God of your father," he continued, "the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, the God of Jacob." Moses hid his face, for he was afraid to look at God.
So indeed the cry of the Israelites has reached me, and I have truly noted that the Egyptians are oppressing them.
Come, now! I will send you to Pharaoh to lead my people, the Israelites, out of Egypt."
But Moses said to God, "Who am I that I should go to Pharaoh and lead the Israelites out of Egypt?"
He answered, "I will be with you; and this shall be your proof that it is I who have sent you: when you bring my people out of Egypt, you will worship God on this very mountain."



Bless the LORD, O my soul;
and all my being, bless his holy name.
Bless the LORD, O my soul,
and forget not all his benefits.
He pardons all your iniquities,
he heals all your ills.
He redeems your life from destruction,
he crowns you with kindness and compassion.
The LORD secures justice
and the rights of all the oppressed.
He has made known his ways to Moses,
and his deeds to the children of Israel.

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Matthew


At that time Jesus exclaimed, "I give praise to you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, for although you have hidden these things from the wise and the learned you have revealed them to the childlike.
Yes, Father, such has been your gracious will.
All things have been handed over to me by my Father. No one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and anyone to whom the Son wishes to reveal him."

Servant of God Francis Garces and Companions(Martyrs (c. 1781))

Servant of God Francis Garcés and CompanionsMartyrs(c. 1781) A contemporary of Blessed Junipero Serra, Saint Francisco Garcés was born in 1738. He grew up in Spain when European imperialism was wreaking havoc and raising new social questions. With a rational decision and the full freedom of love, Francisco Garces joined the Franciscans. After his ordination in 1763, Fr. Francisco (friar and priest) was sent to Mexico. Five years later, he was assigned to San Xavier del Bac, near Tucson: one of several missions founded by the Jesuits. The Jesuits influenced the Spanish court to spare the Philippines from the ravages of conquistadores, but they made political enemies in the process. As a result, the Jesuits were expelled from all territories by the Catholic king of Spain in 1767. Back in Arizona, Fr. Francisco worked among the Papago, Yuma, Pima and Apache Nations. His missionary travels took him to the Grand Canyon and to California. Friar Francisco Palou left a written account of Fr. Francisco Garcés. Fr. Francisco was greatly loved by the indigenous people. He lived with them and evangelized: sharing the Gospel by his preaching, prayer, work and unity of life. They regularly gave him food, and referred to him as "Viva Jesus," which was a greeting he taught them. For the sake of the indigenous converts, the Spanish missionaries wanted to organize settlements away from Spanish soldiers and colonists. However, the commandant in Mexico insisted that two new missions on the Colorado River, Misión San Pedro y San Pablo and Misión La Purísima Concepción, be mixed settlements. A revolt among the Yumas against the Spanish left Friars Juan Diaz and Matias Moreno dead at Misión San Pedro y San Pablo. Friars Francisco Garcés and Juan Barreneche were killed at Misión La Purísima Concepción (the site of Fort Yuma). Death could not put an end to their love. United with God and the communion of saints, the Missionaries intercede for us till the end of time.
