Tuesday of the Fifteenth Week in Ordinary Time

Liturgical Color – Green


EX 2:1-15A – PS 69:3, 14, 30-31, 33-34 – MT 11:20-24

Thought of the day

“We must not gauge our devotion by what we feel, but rather by what we are ready to endure. Indeed, it often happens that God tries the most advanced by letting them experience a coldness and deadness in prayer such as ordinary people seldom experience, and none could endure in such times if their love for God were not very deep and strong, ruling and sustaining the will.”

—Fr. Basil W. Maturin, Spiritual Guidelines for Souls Seeking God

  Weekly Prayer

Spirit of wisdom and understanding, enlighten our minds to perceive the mysteries of the universe in relation to eternity.

Spirit of right judgment and courage, guide us and make us firm in our baptismal decision to follow Jesus’ way of love.

Spirit of knowledge and reverence, help us to see the lasting value of justice and mercy in our everyday dealings with one another.

May we respect life as we work to solve problems of family and nation, economy and ecology.

Spirit of God, spark our faith, hope, and love into new action each day.

Fill our lives with wonder and awe in your presence, which penetrates all creation.


 St. Augustine of Hippo

  • Lapsed Christians

    That our brothers and sisters who have strayed from the faith, through our prayer and witness to the Gospel, may rediscover the merciful closeness of the Lord and the beauty of the Christian life.
