Catholic Missal of the day: Thursday, June 23 2022

Thursday of the Twelfth week in Ordinary Time

2nd book of Kings


Jehoiachin was eighteen years old when he began to reign, and he reigned three months in Jerusalem. His mother's name was Nehushta, daughter of Elnathan of Jerusalem.
He did evil in the sight of the LORD, just as his forebears had done.
At that time the officials of Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon, attacked Jerusalem, and the city came under siege.
Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon, himself arrived at the city while his servants were besieging it.
Then Jehoiachin, king of Judah, together with his mother, his ministers, officers, and functionaries, surrendered to the king of Babylon, who, in the eighth year of his reign, took him captive.
He carried off all the treasures of the temple of the LORD and those of the palace, and broke up all the gold utensils that Solomon, king of Israel, had provided in the temple of the LORD, as the LORD had foretold.
He deported all Jerusalem: all the officers and men of the army, ten thousand in number, and all the craftsmen and smiths. None were left among the people of the land except the poor.
He deported Jehoiachin to Babylon, and also led captive from Jerusalem to Babylon the king's mother and wives, his functionaries, and the chief men of the land.
The king of Babylon also led captive to Babylon all seven thousand men of the army, and a thousand craftsmen and smiths, all of them trained soldiers.
In place of Jehoiachin, the king of Babylon appointed his uncle Mattaniah king, and changed his name to Zedekiah.



O God, the nations have come into your inheritance;
they have defiled your holy temple,
they have laid Jerusalem in ruins.
They have given the corpses of your servants
as food to the birds of heaven,
the flesh of your faithful ones to the beasts of the earth.
They have poured out their blood like water
round about Jerusalem,
and there is no one to bury them.
We have become the reproach of our neighbors,
the scorn and derision of those around us.
O LORD, how long? Will you be angry forever?
Will your jealousy burn like fire?
Remember not against us the iniquities of the past;
may your compassion quickly come to us,
for we are brought very low.
Help us, O God our savior,
because of the glory of your name;
deliver us and pardon our sins
for your name's sake.

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Matthew


Jesus said to his disciples: "Not everyone who says to me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father in heaven.
Many will say to me on that day, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name? Did we not drive out demons in your name? Did we not do mighty deeds in your name?'
Then I will declare to them solemnly, 'I never knew you. Depart from me, you evildoers.'
Everyone who listens to these words of mine and acts on them will be like a wise man who built his house on rock.
The rain fell, the floods came, and the winds blew and buffeted the house. But it did not collapse; it had been set solidly on rock.
And everyone who listens to these words of mine but does not act on them will be like a fool who built his house on sand.
The rain fell, the floods came, and the winds blew and buffeted the house. And it collapsed and was completely ruined."
When Jesus finished these words, the crowds were astonished at his teaching,
for he taught them as one having authority, and not as their scribes.

St. Etheldreda(abbess (7th century))

SAINT ETHELDREDAAbbess(7th century) St. Etheldreda was raised by a loving family and received the Faith from her parents. Her mother and three sisters are also saints. Etheldreda wanted to enter the religious state, but was compelled to marry Tonbercht, a tributary of the Mercian king. She lived with him as a virgin for three years, and after his death retired to the Isle of Ely. Etheldreda's peaceful contemplation was interrupted when the king of Northumbria, Egfrid, forced her into a second marriage. Her life at his court was ascetical rather than regal. She lived as his sister and not his wife. Thus Etheldreda observed regular discipline, devotions and works of mercy and love. After twelve years, with her husband's consent, she retired to Coldingham Abbey under the rule of St. Ebba, and received the veil from St. Wilfrid. After Etheldreda's departure, King Egfrid reneged on his promise and tried to take her back. She took refuge on a headland on the coast near Coldingham; and here a miracle took place. The waters forced themselves around the hill, barring Egfrid's advance. After seven days, the king recognized divine will and left Etheldreda in peace. God will not fail us if, with a single heart, we elect for him. In 672, Etheldreda returned to Ely and founded a double monastery. As the abbess, she was a living example of the Good Shepherd and a temple of the Holy Spirit. Some time after her death in 679, Etheldreda's body was found incorrupt, and St. Bede recorded many miracles at her tomb.
