    Reading 1 GAL 1:6-12 Brothers and sisters: I am amazed that you are so quickly forsaking the one who called you by the grace of Christ for a different gospel (not that there is another). But there are some who are disturbing you and wish to pervert the Gospel of Christ. But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach to you a gospel  other than the one that we preached to you, let that one be accursed! As we have said before, and now I say again, if anyone preaches to you a gospel other than the […]

    Reading 1 Hab 1:2-3; 2:2-4 How long, O LORD?  I cry for help but you do not listen! I cry out to you, "Violence!" but you do not intervene. Why do you let me see ruin; why must I look at misery? Destruction and violence are before me; there is strife, and clamorous discord. Then the LORD answered me and said: Write down the vision clearly upon the tablets, so that one can read it readily. For the vision still has its time, presses on to fulfillment, and will not disappoint; if it delays, wait for it, it will surely come, it will not be late. The rash one has no integrity; but the just one, […]

    Readings for the Memorial of Saint Thérèse of the Child Jesus, virgin and doctor of the ChurchReading 1 JB 42:1-3, 5-6, 12-17 Job answered the LORD and said: I know that you can do all things, and that no purpose of yours can be hindered.

Therefore I disown what I have said, and repent in dust and ashes. Thus the LORD blessed the latter […]

    Readings for the Memorial of Saint Jerome, priest and doctor of the ChurchReading 1 Jb 38:1, 12-21; 40:3-5 The LORD addressed Job out of the storm and said:Have you ever in your lifetime commanded the morningand shown the dawn its placeFor taking hold of the ends of the earth,till the wicked are shaken from its surface?The earth is changed as is clay by the seal,and dyed as though it were a garment;But from the wicked the light is withheld,and the arm of pride is shattered.Have you entered into the sources of the sea,or walked about in the depths of the […]

    Reading I Dn 7:9-10, 13-14 As I watched:     Thrones were set up         and the Ancient One took his throne.     His clothing was bright as snow,         and the hair on his head as white as wool;     His throne was flames of fire,         with wheels of burning fire.     A surging stream of fire         flowed out from where he sat;     Thousands upon thousands were ministering to him,         and myriads upon myriads attended him. The court was convened, and the books were opened. As the visions during the night […]

    Reading 1 Jb 9:1-12, 14-16 Job answered his friends and said:I know well that it is so;but how can a man be justified before God?Should one wish to contend with him,he could not answer him once in a thousand times.God is wise in heart and mighty in strength;who has withstood him and remained unscathed?He removes the mountains before they know it;he overturns them in his anger.He shakes the earth out of its place,and the pillars beneath it tremble.He commands the sun, and it rises not;he seals up the stars.He alone stretches out the heavensand treads upon the crests of the […]
