First Monday of Passiontide, St. Turibius of Mogrevejo
Blessed St. Turibius of Mogrovejo’s Day!
You can find his story here.
I will look after My sheep, says the Lord,
and I will appoint a shepherd to pasture them, and I, the Lord, will be their God.
O God, who gave increase to Your Church
through the apostolic labors and zeal for the truth
of the Bishop Saint Turibius,
grant that the people consecrated to You
may always receive new growth in faith and holiness.
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.
2 Timothy 1:13-14; 2:1-3 (Be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus)
Psalm 96:1-3, 7-8, 10 “Proclaim God’s marvelous deeds to all the nations”
+Matthew 9:35-38 (Ask the Lord of the Harvest to send out laborers)
Be strong O warrior!
in the Lord
and fight for those
the devil has abused
and left to die.
Let your courageous heart
to bear the hardships
in taking up
of handing on
of the Lord
from the Light.
Am I willing to suffer for the souls for whom Jesus died?
Do I proclaim the glory of the Lord to everyone or just to those I think will “understand”?
