Scripture of the Day

Reading 1 Lam 2:2, 10-14, 18-19
The Lord has consumed without pityall the dwellings of Jacob;He has torn down in his angerthe fortresses of daughter Judah;He has brought to the ground in dishonorher king and her princes.On the ground in silence sitthe old men of daughter Zion;They strew dust on their headsand gird themselves with sackcloth;The maidens of Jerusalembow their heads to the ground.Worn out from weeping are my eyes,within me all is in ferment;My gall is poured out on the groundbecause of the downfall of the daughter of my people,As child and infant faint awayin the open spaces of the town.In vain they ask their mothers,“Where is the grain?”As they faint away like the woundedin the streets of the city,And breathe their lastin their mothers’ arms.To what can I liken or compare you,O daughter Jerusalem?What example can I show you for your comfort,virgin daughter Zion?For great as the sea is your downfall;who can heal you?Your prophets had for youfalse and specious visions;They did not lay bare your guilt,to avert your fate;They beheld for you in visionfalse and misleading portents.Cry out to the Lord;moan, O daughter Zion!Let your tears flow like a torrentday and night;Let there be no respite for you,no repose for your eyes.Rise up, shrill in the night,at the beginning of every watch;Pour out your heart like waterin the presence of the Lord;Lift up your hands to himfor the lives of your little onesWho faint from hungerat the corner of every street.
Responsorial Psalm Ps 74:1b-2, 3-5, 6-7, 20-21
R. (19b) Lord, forget not the souls of your poor ones.Why, O God, have you cast us off forever?Why does your anger smolder against the sheep of your pasture?Remember your flock which you built up of old,the tribe you redeemed as your inheritance,Mount Zion, where you took up your abode.R. Lord, forget not the souls of your poor ones.Turn your steps toward the utter ruins;toward all the damage the enemy has done in the sanctuary.Your foes roar triumphantly in your shrine;they have set up their tokens of victory.They are like men coming up with axes to a clump of trees.R. Lord, forget not the souls of your poor ones.With chisel and hammer they hack at all the paneling of the sanctuary.They set your sanctuary on fire;the place where your name abides they have razed and profaned.R. Lord, forget not the souls of your poor ones.Look to your covenant,for the hiding places in the land and the plains are full of violence.May the humble not retire in confusion;may the afflicted and the poor praise your name.R. Lord, forget not the souls of your poor ones.
R. Alleluia, alleluia.Christ took away our infirmitiesand bore our diseases.R. Alleluia, alleluia.Gospel Mt 8:5-17

When Jesus entered Capernaum,a centurion approached him and appealed to him, saying,“Lord, my servant is lying at home paralyzed, suffering dreadfully.” He said to him, “I will come and cure him.”The centurion said in reply,“Lord, I am not worthy to have you enter under my roof;only say the word and my servant will be healed.For I too am a man subject to authority,with soldiers subject to me.And I say to one, ‘Go,’ and he goes;and to another, ‘Come here,’ and he comes;and to my slave, ‘Do this,’ and he does it.”When Jesus heard this, he was amazed and said to those following him,“Amen, I say to you, in no one in Israel have I found such faith.I say to you, many will come from the east and the west,and will recline with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacobat the banquet in the Kingdom of heaven,but the children of the Kingdomwill be driven out into the outer darkness,where there will be wailing and grinding of teeth.”And Jesus said to the centurion,“You may go; as you have believed, let it be done for you.”And at that very hour his servant was healed.Jesus entered the house of Peter,and saw his mother-in-law lying in bed with a fever.He touched her hand, the fever left her,and she rose and waited on him. When it was evening, they brought him manywho were possessed by demons,and he drove out the spirits by a word and cured all the sick,to fulfill what had been said by Isaiah the prophet:He took away our infirmities and bore our diseases.

Pope Francis Intentions

The Pope's universal intention is:
"That the aged, marginalized, and those who have no one may find, even within the huge cities of the world, opportunities for encounter and solidarity."
His intention for evangelization is:
"That seminarians and men and woman entering religious life may have mentors who live the joy of the Gospel and prepare them wisely for their mission." 

Happy Mother's Day

Father in heaven, Grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me.

Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege– to share in your creative miracle and bring new saints to heaven.
Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son.
In the name of Jesus and through the intercession of Mary, I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven.
