Catholic Missal of the day: Saturday, July 8 2023

Saturday of the Thirteenth week in Ordinary Time

Book of Genesis


When Isaac was so old that his eyesight had failed him, he called his older son Esau and said to him, "Son!" "Yes, father!" he replied.
Isaac then said, "As you can see, I am so old that I may now die at any time.
Take your gear, therefore--your quiver and bow--and go out into the country to hunt some game for me.
With your catch prepare an appetizing dish for me, such as I like, and bring it to me to eat, so that I may give you my special blessing before I die."
Rebekah had been listening while Isaac was speaking to his son Esau. So when Esau went out into the country to hunt some game for his father,
Rebekah then took the best clothes of her older son Esau that she had in the house, and gave them to her younger son Jacob to wear;
and with the skins of the kids she covered up his hands and the hairless parts of his neck.
Then she handed her son Jacob the appetizing dish and the bread she had prepared.
Bringing them to his father, Jacob said, "Father!" "Yes?" replied Isaac. "Which of my sons are you?"
Jacob answered his father: "I am Esau, your first-born. I did as you told me. Please sit up and eat some of my game, so that you may give me your special blessing."
But Isaac asked, "How did you succeed so quickly, son?" He answered, "The LORD, your God, let things turn out well with me."
Isaac then said to Jacob, "Come closer, son, that I may feel you, to learn whether you really are my son Esau or not."
So Jacob moved up closer to his father. When Isaac felt him, he said, "Although the voice is Jacob's, the hands are Esau's."
(He failed to identify him because his hands were hairy, like those of his brother Esau; so in the end he gave him his blessing.)
Again he asked him, "Are you really my son Esau?" "Certainly," he replied.
Then Isaac said, "Serve me your game, son, that I may eat of it and then give you my blessing." Jacob served it to him, and Isaac ate; he brought him wine, and he drank.
Finally his father Isaac said to him, "Come closer, son, and kiss me."
As Jacob went up and kissed him, Isaac smelled the fragrance of his clothes. With that, he blessed him, saying, "Ah, the fragrance of my son is like the fragrance of a field that the LORD has blessed!
"May God give to you of the dew of the heavens And of the fertility of the earth abundance of grain and wine.
"Let peoples serve you, and nations pay you homage; Be master of your brothers, and may your mother's sons bow down to you. Cursed be those who curse you, and blessed be those who bless you."



Praise the name of the LORD;
Praise, you servants of the LORD
Who stand in the house of the LORD,
in the courts of the house of our God.
Praise the LORD, for the LORD is good;
sing praise to his name, which we love;
For the LORD has chosen Jacob for himself,
Israel for his own possession.
For I know that the LORD is great;
our LORD is greater than all gods.
All that the LORD wills he does
in heaven and on earth,
in the seas and in all the deeps.

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Matthew


The disciples of John approached Jesus and said, "Why do we and the Pharisees fast much, but your disciples do not fast?"
Jesus answered them, "Can the wedding guests mourn as long as the bridegroom is with them? The days will come when the bridegroom is taken away from them, and then they will fast."
No one patches an old cloak with a piece of unshrunken cloth, for its fullness pulls away from the cloak and the tear gets worse.
People do not put new wine into old wineskins. Otherwise the skins burst, the wine spills out, and the skins are ruined. Rather, they pour new wine into fresh wineskins, and both are preserved."

Bl. Peter Vigne(Priest (1670-1740))

PETER VIGNE Priest (1670-1740) Peter Vigne was born on August 20, 1670, in Privas, France, a small town still feeling the effects of the Wars of Religion from the previous century. His father, Peter Vigne, a honest textile merchant, and his mother, Frances Gautier, married in the Catholic Church. Their five children were baptised in the parish of Saint Thomas. Two daughters passed away in infancy. Peter and his two older siblings, John-Francis and Eleonore, lived with their parents in relative comfort.When he was 11 years old, Peter was chosen by the Parish Priest to act as a witness, signing the parish register for Baptisms, Marriages or Deaths. After completing his education, Peter's life was transformed during adolescence by a new awareness of the presence of Jesus Christ in the Eucharist. This experience led him to center his life on Jesus, who offered Himself on the Cross for love of us, and in the Eucharist, never ceases to give himself to all men. In 1690, he entered the Sulpician Seminary in Viviers. Ordained a priest on September 18, 1694, in Bourg Saint Andeol, by the Bishop of Viviers, he was sent as curate to Saint-Agreve. There, he exercised his priestly ministry for six years alongside the parish priest. Always prudent in discerning God's will, Fr. Peter felt called elsewhere. With understandable hesitancy in the beginning, and then with increasing certitude, he pursued his spiritual itinerary along new paths. His desire to work as a missionary among the poor was central to his decision to join the Vincentians at Lyon in 1700. There, Fr. Peter rceived further formation in spiritual poverty and conducting "popular missions." Exercising their apostolic ministry, Fr. Peter and his fellow priests began visiting towns and villages, evangelizing the people. In 1706, he left the Vincentians to search how to best serve the poor. His vocation took shape as he became "itinerant missionary," applying his own pastoral methods while submitting his ministry to the authorization of his hierarchical superiors. For more than thirty years, he travelled on foot and on horseback to Vivarais and Dauphiné and even further. He faced the fatigue of being constantly on the move as well as severe weather - in order to make Jesus known and loved. He preached, visited the sick, catechised the children and administered the sacraments; even going as far as carrying his confessional on his back, ready at all times to celebrate and bestow the Mercy of God. He celebrated Mass, exposed the Blessed Sacrament and taught the faithful the prayer of Adoration. Mary, "Beautiful Tabernacle of God among men" was also given a place of honor in his prayer and his teaching. In 1712, he came to Boucieu-le-Roi, where the terrain favored the paving of a Way of the Cross. With the help of parishioners, Fr. Peter constructed thirty-nine stations throughout the village and countryside, teaching the faithful to follow Jesus from the Upper Room to Easter and Pentecost. Boucieu became his place of residence. There, he gathered together a few women who assisted pilgrims along the Way of the Cross. It was there that he founded the Congregation of the Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament. On November 30, 1715, in the church at Boucieu, he gave them the cross and the religious habit. He invited them to assure continuous adoration of Jesus present in the Eucharist and to live together in fellowship. Anxious to give the youth access to instruction, thus helping them grow in their faith and Christian values, Peter Vigne opened schools and also established a Training School for teachers. Such a challenging and busy lifestyle needed some support. For that reason, whenever Fr. Peter was in Lyon on business, he never failed to call on his former seminary tutors, the priests of Saint Sulpice, to meet his confessor and spiritual director. Drawn by the eucharistic spirituality of the Priests of the Blessed Sacrament, founded by Monsignor d'Authier de Sisgaud, he was accepted as an associate member of this society of priests on January 25, 1724, in Valence, and benefited by their spiritual and temporal help. While continuing to accompany his young Congregation, Fr. Peter Vigne persisted with his apostolic works; and to make the fruits of his missions more available, he found time to write books: rules to live by, works of spirituality, especially the one entitled "Meditations on the most beautiful book, Jesus Christ suffering and dying on the Cross."The physical strength of our pilgrim for God, the demands of his apostolic activities, the long hours he spent in adoration and his life of poverty, bear witness to a living love for Jesus Christ. At 70, work-related exhaustion cut short Fr. Peter's preaching during a mission at Rencurel, in the Vercors mountains. Feeling his life was at an end, Fr. Peter prayed and reflected. A priest and two Sisters came in haste to accompany him in his final moments. On July 8, 1740, he passed away and joined the Church Triumphant. His body was taken back to its final resting place in the little church in Boucieu, where it remains to this day.He was beatified by Pope John Paul II on October 3, 2004.
