Blessed St. Cyril of Jerusalem’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:
O God, who through Bishop Saint Cyril of Jerusalem
led Your Church in a wonderful way
to a deeper sense of the mysteries of salvation,
grant us, through his intercession,
that we may so acknowledge Your Son
as to have life ever more abundantly.
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:
I John 5:1-5 (Whoever obeys God’s commandments conquers the world)
Psalm 19:8-11 “The precepts of the Lord give joy to the heart”
+John 15:1-8 (Whoever remains in Me will bear much fruit)

Obedience
is victory!

It demonstrates
my love for God
and overcomes
the barrenness
of life apart from Him.

Commandments
back me up
in the ordeal
and help me
win the crown.

Am I grateful for God’s “guard rails”?
How victorious am I?
