14th Week in Ordinary Time: Monday
Matthew Chapter: 9 Verses: 18-26
My daughter has just died, but come and her life will be saved
While Jesus was speaking, up came one of the officials, who bowed low in front of him and said, ‘My daughter has just died, but come and lay your hands on her and her life will be saved.’ Jesus rose and, with his disciples, followed him.
Then from behind him came a woman, who had suffered from a haemorrage for twelve years, and she touched the fringe of his cloak, for she said to herself, ‘If I can only touch his cloak I shall be well again.’ Jesus turned round and saw her; and he said to her, ‘Courage, my daughter, your faith has restored you to health.’ And from that moment the woman was well again.
When Jesus reached the official’s house and saw the flute players, with the crowd making a commotion he said, ‘Get out of here; the girl is not dead, she is asleep.’ And they laughed at him. But when the people had been turned out he went inside and took the girl by the hand; and she stood up. And the news spread all round the countryside.
This is the Gospel of the Lord
Saint of the Day: Saint Maria Goretti
Act of Spiritual Communion
My Jesus, I believe that Thou art present in the Blessed Sacrament. I love Thee above all things and I desire Thee in my soul. Since I cannot now receive Thee sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. As though Thou were already there, I embrace Thee and unite myself wholly to Thee; permit not that I should ever be separated from Thee. Amen.
St. Alphonsus Maria de Ligouri (1696-1787)
