Catholic Missal of the day: Thursday, June 16 2022

Thursday of the Eleventh week in Ordinary Time

Book of Sirach


In those days, like a fire there appeared the prophet Elijah whose words were as a flaming furnace.
Their staff of bread he shattered, in his zeal he reduced them to straits;
By God's word he shut up the heavens and three times brought down fire.
How awesome are you, Elijah! Whose glory is equal to yours?
You brought a dead man back to life from the nether world, by the will of the LORD.
You sent kings down to destruction, and nobles, from their beds of sickness.
You heard threats at Sinai, at Horeb avenging judgments.
You anointed kings who should inflict vengeance, and a prophet as your successor.
You were taken aloft in a whirlwind, in a chariot with fiery horses.
You are destined, it is written, in time to come to put an end to wrath before the day of the LORD, To turn back the hearts of fathers toward their sons, and to reestablish the tribes of Jacob.
Blessed is he who shall have seen you and who falls asleep in your friendship.
O Elijah, enveloped in the whirlwind! Then Elisha, filled with a twofold portion of his spirit, wrought many marvels by his mere word. During his lifetime he feared no one, nor was any man able to intimidate his will.
Nothing was beyond his power; beneath him flesh was brought back into life.
In life he performed wonders, and after death, marvelous deeds.



The LORD is king; let the earth rejoice;
let the many islands be glad.
Clouds and darkness are round about him,
justice and judgment are the foundation of his throne.
Fire goes before him
and consumes his foes round about.
His lightnings illumine the world;
the earth sees and trembles.
The mountains melt like wax before the LORD,
before the Lord of all the earth.
The heavens proclaim his justice,
and all peoples see his glory.
All who worship graven things are put to shame,
who glory in the things of nought;
all gods are prostrate before him.

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Matthew


Jesus said to his disciples:
"In praying, do not babble like the pagans, who think that they will be heard because of their many words.
Do not be like them. Your Father knows what you need before you ask him.
This is how you are to pray: Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name,
your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as in heaven.
Give us today our daily bread;
and forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors;
and do not subject us to the final test, but deliver us from the evil one.
If you forgive others their transgressions, your heavenly Father will forgive you.
But if you do not forgive others, neither will your Father forgive your transgressions."

St. John Francis Regis(Priest (1597-1640))

SAINT JOHN FRANCIS REGISPriest(1597-1640) St. John Francis Regis was born in Languedoc, France in 1597. When he was young, he showed innocence of life, modesty and love of prayer. When he turned eighteen, he entered the Society of Jesus. After graduating, he gave himself entirely to the salvation of souls. Fr. John spent the winter in country missions, principally in mountainous districts. In spite of harsh weather and the people's roughness, he gained innumerable souls to Christ. They converted from heresy and immoral acts thanks to his prayers, penances, mortifications, works and preaching. In the summer, Fr. John visited hospitals and prisons, preaching and instructing, and assisting all in need. In works of mercy, God helped St. John by miracles.In November 1637, Fr. John set out for his second mission at Marthes, crossing snow-filled valleys and frozen and precipitous mountains. When climbing a mountain, a bush he was clinging to gave way, and he broke his leg in the fall. With his companion's help, he covered the remaining six miles, but instead of seeing a surgeon, went to hear confessions. After several hours, the curate of the parish found him, with his leg miraculously healed. St. John's apostolate was among the poor and marginalized. He established halfway houses for abused and exploited women. He solicited donations from wealthy French families to build shelters and finance vocational training for the needy.Like a good shepherd, he prioritized the needs of his flock, especially the weakest and most in need. His apostolate was so fruitful that conversions followed everywhere. "Goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever" (Ps. 23:6). St. John was ablaze with the love of God, and he offered up the Holy Eucharist with such attentiveness and humility that those who assisted sensed something of that fire. After twelve years of unceasing labor, Fr. John rendered his pure soul to Jesus Christ at the age of forty-four.
