Friday of the Eleventh week in Ordinary Time

2nd book of Kings


When Athaliah, the mother of Ahaziah, saw that her son was dead, she began to kill off the whole royal family.
But Jehosheba, daughter of King Jehoram and sister of Ahaziah, took Joash, his son, and spirited him away, along with his nurse, from the bedroom where the princes were about to be slain. She concealed him from Athaliah, and so he did not die.
For six years he remained hidden in the temple of the LORD, while Athaliah ruled the land.
But in the seventh year, Jehoiada summoned the captains of the Carians and of the guards. He had them come to him in the temple of the LORD, exacted from them a sworn commitment, and then showed them the king's son.
The captains did just as Jehoiada the priest commanded. Each one with his men, both those going on duty for the sabbath and those going off duty that week, came to Jehoiada the priest.
He gave the captains King David's spears and shields, which were in the temple of the LORD.
And the guards, with drawn weapons, lined up from the southern to the northern limit of the enclosure, surrounding the altar and the temple on the king's behalf.
Then Jehoiada led out the king's son and put the crown and the insignia upon him. They proclaimed him king and anointed him, clapping their hands and shouting, "Long live the king!"
Athaliah heard the noise made by the people, and appeared before them in the temple of the LORD.
When she saw the king standing by the pillar, as was the custom, and the captains and trumpeters near him, with all the people of the land rejoicing and blowing trumpets, she tore her garments and cried out, "Treason, treason!"
Then Jehoiada the priest instructed the captains in command of the force: "Bring her outside through the ranks. If anyone follows her," he added, "let him die by the sword." He had given orders that she should not be slain in the temple of the LORD.
She was led out forcibly to the horse gate of the royal palace, where she was put to death.
Then Jehoiada made a covenant between the LORD as one party and the king and the people as the other, by which they would be the LORD'S people; and another covenant, between the king and the people.
Thereupon all the people of the land went to the temple of Baal and demolished it. They shattered its altars and images completely, and slew Mattan, the priest of Baal, before the altars. After appointing a detachment for the temple of the LORD, Jehoiada
All the people of the land rejoiced and the city was quiet, now that Athaliah had been slain with the sword at the royal palace.



The LORD swore to David
a firm promise from which he will not withdraw:
"Your own offspring
I will set upon your throne."
"If your sons keep my covenant
and the decrees which I shall teach them,
their sons, too, forever
shall sit upon your throne."
For the LORD has chosen Zion;
He prefers her for his dwelling.
"Zion is my resting place forever;
In her will I dwell, for I prefer her."
"In her will I make a horn to sprout forth for David;
I will place a lamp for my anointed.
his enemies I will clothe with shame,
but upon him my crown shall shine."

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Matthew


Jesus said to his disciples: "Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and decay destroy, and thieves break in and steal.
But store up treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor decay destroys, nor thieves break in and steal.
For where your treasure is, there also will your heart be.
The lamp of the body is the eye. If your eye is sound, your whole body will be filled with light;
but if your eye is bad, your whole body will be in darkness. And if the light in you is darkness, how great will the darkness be."

St. Herve(Abbot, (6th century))

Saint Herve of BrittanyAbbot(6th century) Saint Herve, sometimes called Harvey or Hervues, is venerated throughout Brittany. We have few particulars on him because his life was not written until the late medieval period. All we really know is that he was a hermit in Brittany, where he is still venerated. Herve was the son of the bard Hyvarnion and was born blind. His father died when he was an infant and he was raised by his uncles after his mother became an anchoress.He lived for a while as a hermit and bard and then joined a monastic school at Plouvien which had been founded by his uncle. After becoming Abbot of Plouvien, he built an abbey at Lanhourneau. St. Herve is venerated as a miracle worker. He is reported to have a special ministry of healing animals and to have a domesticated wolf as a companion.He is invoked against eye trouble and he is depicted with a wolf.

St. Avitus(Abbot)

SAINT AVITUSAbbot St. Avitus was a native of Orleans who took the monastic habit with St. Calais in the abbey of Menat in Auvergne. Although small, the abbey was later endowned by Queen Brunehault and St. Boner, Bishop of Clermont. Avitus and Calais returned to Miscy, situated a league and a half below Orleans. It was founded toward the end of the reign of Clovis I by St. Euspicius, a holy priest, and his nephew, St. Maximin or Mesnim. EitherSt. Maximin or St. Euspicius was the first abbot, while St. Avitus the third. At present, the abbey is named after St. Maximin and is administered by the Cistercians. St. Avitus and St. Calais later moved to Dunois on the frontiers of La Perche searching for a closer retirement. When others joined them,St. Calais retired to a forest in Maine. King Clotaire then built a church and monastery for St. Avitus and his companions. The monastery is today a Benedictine convent called St. Avy of Chateaudun in the diocese of Chartres. It is situated on the Loire at the foot of the hill on which the town of Chateaudun is built. Three famous monks, Leobin, Euphronius and Rusticus attended Fra Avitus to his happy death about the year 530. His body was carried to Orleans and reverently interred in that city.
