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

O Holy Mother of God,
pray for the priests
your Son has chosen to serve the Church.
Help them by your intercession,
to be holy,
zealous, and chaste.
Make them models of virtue
in the service of God’s people.
Help them to be prayerful in meditations,
effective in preaching,
and enthusiastic in the daily offering of
the holy sacrifice of the Mass.
Help them to administer the sacraments with joy.

 St. Charles Borromeo

  The Pope’s Prayer Intentions for August 2017

  • 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.
