Blessed St. Isidore of Seville’s Day!

You can find his story here.

Entrance Antiphon:
This is the steward, faithful and prudent,
whom the Lord set over His household
to give them their allowance of food at the proper time.

Collect:
Graciously hear the prayers, O Lord,
which we make in commemoration of Saint Isidore,
that Your Church may be aided by his intercession,
just as She has been instructed by his heavenly teaching.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son,
who lives and reigns with You in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, forever and ever. Amen.

Readings:
2 Corinthians 4:1-2, 5-7(We do not preach ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord)
Psalm 37:3-6, 30-31 “The mouth of the just murmurs wisdom”
+Luke 6:43-45 (You will be known by your fruit)

It’s not from me.

I’m just the earthen vessel
full of treasure,
full of light
that issued from
the mouth of God.

I speak it forth
into the darkness
that contests it.

I don’t need
to shore it up
with trickery.
It’s not from me
and I’m persuaded
that the Light
can hold its own.

Does my mouth speak from the fullness of God’s Light
or from my own insecurity?
