Catholic Missal of the day: Thursday, July 20 2023

Thursday of the Fifteenth week in Ordinary Time

Book of Exodus


Moses, hearing the voice of the LORD from the burning bush, said to him, “When I go to the children of Israel and say to them, ‘The God of your fathers has sent me to you,’ if they ask me, ‘What is his name?’ what am I to tell them?”
God replied, "I am who am." Then he added, "This is what you shall tell the Israelites: I AM sent me to you."
God spoke further to Moses, "Thus shall you say to the Israelites: The LORD, the God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, the God of Jacob, has sent me to you. "This is my name forever; this is my title for all generations.
"Go and assemble the elders of the Israelites, and tell them: The LORD, the God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, has appeared to me and said: I am concerned about you and about the way you are being treated in Egypt;
so I have decided to lead you up out of the misery of Egypt into the land of the Canaanites, Hittites, Amorites, Perizzites, Hivites and Jebusites, a land flowing with milk and honey.
"Thus they will heed your message. Then you and the elders of Israel shall go to the king of Egypt and say to him: The LORD, the God of the Hebrews, has sent us word. Permit us, then, to go a three days' journey in the desert, that we may offer sacrifice to the LORD, our God.
"Yet I know that the king of Egypt will not allow you to go unless he is forced.
I will stretch out my hand, therefore, and smite Egypt by doing all kinds of wondrous deeds there. After that he will send you away."



Give thanks to the LORD, invoke his name;
make known among the nations his deeds.
Recall the wondrous deeds that he has wrought,
his portents, and the judgments he has uttered.
He remembers forever his covenant
which he made binding for a thousand generations.
Which he entered into with Abraham
and by his oath to Isaac.
He greatly increased his people
and made them stronger than their foes,
Whose hearts he changed, so that they hated his people,
and dealt deceitfully with his servants.
He sent Moses his servant;
Aaron, whom he had chosen.
They wrought his signs among them,
and wonders in the land of Ham.

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Matthew


Jesus said to the crowds: “Come to me, all you who labor and are burdened, and I will give you rest.
Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am meek and humble of heart; and you will find rest for yourselves.
For my yoke is easy, and my burden light."

St. Apollinaris(Bishop and Martyr)

SAINT APOLLINARISBishop and Martyr(c. 2nd-3rd century) St. Apollinaris was the first bishop of Ravenna. He sat twenty years; and was martyred during the reign of Vespasian. He was a disciple of St. Peter, who consecrated him Bishop of Ravenna. St. Peter Chrysologus, one of St. Apollinaris' successors, gave us this account of him: "Though he frequently suffered for the Faith and ardently desired to lay down his life for Christ, God preserved Apollinaris a long time, and did not allow the persecutors to take his life." Bp. Apollinaris is a martyr because he suffered within an inch of his life. His relics were first at Classis, four miles from Ravenna: a kind of suburb to that city and its seaport. In 549, his relics were moved to a more secret vault in the same church. St. Fortunatus urged his friends to make pilgrimages there, and St. Gregory the Great ordered parties in doubtful suits to be sworn before it. Pope Honorius built a church in Rome after St. Apollinaris in 630. He is remembered in all martyrologies. He is a help against evil and a powerful force for intercession.

St. Margaret of Antioch(Virgin and Martyr (3rd century))

SAINT MARGARET OF ANTIOCHVirgin and Martyr(3rd century) According to the ancient Martyrologies, St. Margaret suffered at Antioch, in Pisidia, during the last general persecution. She was instructed in the Faith by a Christian nurse. St. Margaret was killed by her father. She struggled heroically: forgiving her enemies; and praying for them. St. Margaret's radical choice to follow Jesus Christ partly motivated her father, a pagan priest, to take her life. She was killed using a sword. St. Margaret's veneration was propagated in England, France and Germany. The twelfth century saw an increase in hercult due to wars against Islamic encroachment. Her relics are kept at Monte-Fiascone, Tuscany, central Italy.
