    May 28, 2015Thursday of the Eighth Week in Ordinary Time    Reading 1 Sir 42:15-25 Now will I recall God’s works;what I have seen, I will describe.At God’s word were his works brought into being;they do his will as he has ordained for them.As the rising sun is clear to all,so the glory of the LORD fills all his works;Yet even God’s holy ones must failin recounting the wonders of the LORD,Though God has given these, his hosts, the strengthto stand firm before his glory.He plumbs the depths and penetrates the heart;their innermost being he understands.The Most High possesses...

    May 26, 2015Memorial of Saint Philip Neri, Priest    Reading 1 Sir 35:1-12 To keep the law is a great oblation,and he who observes the commandments sacrifices a peace offering.In works of charity one offers fine flour,and when he gives alms he presents his sacrifice of praise.To refrain from evil pleases the LORD,and to avoid injustice is an atonement.Appear not before the LORD empty-handed,for all that you offer is in fulfillment of the precepts.The just one’s offering enriches the altarand rises as a sweet odor before the Most High.The just one’s sacrifice is most pleasing,nor will it ever be...

Obey your leaders and defer to them,for they keep watch over you and will have to give an account,that they may fulfill their task with joy and not with sorrow,for that would be of no advantage to you.
