Catholic Missal of the day: Saturday, June 18 2022

Saturday of the Eleventh week in Ordinary Time

2nd book of Chronicles


After the death of Jehoiada, the princes of Judah came and paid homage to the king, and the king then listened to them.
They forsook the temple of the LORD, the God of their fathers, and began to serve the sacred poles and the idols; and because of this crime of theirs, wrath came upon Judah and Jerusalem.
Although prophets were sent to them to convert them to the LORD, the people would not listen to their warnings.
Then the spirit of God possessed Zechariah, son of Jehoiada the priest. He took his stand above the people and said to them: "God says, 'Why are you transgressing the LORD'S commands, so that you cannot prosper? Because you have abandoned the LORD, he has abandoned you.'"
But they conspired against him, and at the king's order they stoned him to death in the court of the LORD'S temple.
Thus King Joash was unmindful of the devotion shown him by Jehoiada, Zechariah's father, and slew his son. And as he was dying, he said, "May the LORD see and avenge."
At the turn of the year a force of Arameans came up against Joash. They invaded Judah and Jerusalem, did away with all the princes of the people, and sent all their spoil to the king of Damascus.
Though the Aramean force came with few men, the LORD surrendered a very large force into their power, because Judah had abandoned the LORD, the God of their fathers. So punishment was meted out to Joash.
After the Arameans had departed from him, leaving him in grievous suffering, his servants conspired against him because of the murder of the son of Jehoiada the priest. They killed him on his sickbed. He was buried in the City of David, but not in the tombs of the kings.



"I have made a covenant with my chosen one,
I have sworn to David my servant:
Forever will I confirm your posterity
and establish your throne for all generations.”
Forever I will maintain my kindness toward him,
and my covenant with him stands firm.”
I will make his posterity endure forever
and his throne as the days of heaven."
"If his sons forsake my law
and walk not according to my ordinances,
If they violate my statutes
and keep not my commands."
"I will punish their crime with a rod
and their guilt with stripes.
Yet my mercy I will not take from him,
nor will I belie my faithfulness."

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Matthew


Jesus said to his disciples: "No one can serve two masters. He will either hate one and love the other, or be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.
Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat (or drink), or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing?
Look at the birds in the sky; they do not sow or reap, they gather nothing into barns, yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are not you more important than they?
Can any of you by worrying add a single moment to your life-span?
Why are you anxious about clothes? Learn from the way the wild flowers grow. They do not work or spin.
But I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was clothed like one of them.
If God so clothes the grass of the field, which grows today and is thrown into the oven tomorrow, will he not much more provide for you, O you of little faith?
So do not worry and say, 'What are we to eat?' or 'What are we to drink?' or 'What are we to wear?'
All these things the pagans seek. Your heavenly Father knows that you need them all.
But seek first the kingdom (of God) and his righteousness, and all these things will be given you besides.
Do not worry about tomorrow; tomorrow will take care of itself. Sufficient for a day is its own evil."

St. Gregory Barbarigo(Bishop (1625-1697))

SAINT GREGORY BARBARIGOBishop (1625-1697) Gregory Barbarigo was born to a noble family in Venice and graduated with high honors from the University of Padua with doctorates in canon and civil law. With the encouragement of Fabio Chigi, the Apostolic Nuncio, he attended the Peace Congress in Münster when he was nineteen. There, Gregory consecrated himself to the service of the Church. After Gregory was ordained, Fabio Chigi became Pope Alexander VII. He nominated Gregory to the Bishopric of Bergamo and appointed him cardinal. Gregory was afterward transferred to the Bishopric of Padua. While carrying out his duties, Bp. Gregory emulated St. Charles Borromeo. He zealously put into effect the admonitions and decrees of the Council of Trent. Pastoral by nature, Bp. Gregory preached about uprooting vice and cultivating virtue.He took special pains to promote catechetical instruction and visited every village of his diocese, teaching and encouraging wherever he went. Bp. Gregory enlarged the seminaries of both Bergamo and Padua. He built a library in Padua and a printing press to reach people in the Near East in their own language. His works of charity were remarkable in that he always provided for the needs of the poor,selling his furniture, clothes and even his bed to help them. After a short illness, Bp. Gregory passed away on June 15, 1697. Reknowned for his virtues, he was beatified by Clement XIII and added to the list of saints by John XXIII.

Sts. Marcus and Marcellianus(Martyrs (+286))

SAINTS MARCUS and MARCELLIANUSMartyrs(+286) Marcus and Marcellianus were twin brothers from a noble family in Rome. They converted to the Faith in their youth and were honorably married. Diocletian ascending the imperial throne in 284, the pagans surrounding him raised a persecution. The brothers were thrown into prison and condemned to be beheaded. Their friends obtained a respite of the execution for thirty days and attempted to have them worship false gods. Tranquillinus and Martia, their unbelieving parents, in company with their sons' wives and babies, endeavored to move them by tender entreaties and tears. St. Sebastian, an officer of the emperor's household, came to Rome soon after the brothers were imprisoned and encouraged them. The result of all these interactions was the happy conversion of the father, mother and wives, and also of Nicostratus, the public register, and soon after of Chromatius, the judge, who set the Saints at liberty, and, abdicating the magistracy, retired into the country. Marcus and Marcellianus were concealed by a Christian officer in his apartments in the palace, but they were betrayed by an apostate and retaken. Fabian, who had succeeded Chromatius, condemned them to be bound to two pillars with their feet nailed to the same. In this posture, they remained a day and a night, and on the following day were stabbed with lances.
