Catholic Daily Reading & Devotions 14th June 2019

Reading 1: Second Corinthians 4:7-15
Responsorial Psalm: Psalms 116:10-11, 15-16, 17-18

Gospel: Matthew 5:27-32

Reading 1: Second Corinthians 4:7-15
7 But we hold this treasure in pots of earthenware, so that the immensity of the power is God’s and not our own.

8 We are subjected to every kind of hardship, but never distressed; we see no way out but we never despair;

9 we are pursued but never cut off; knocked down, but still have some life in us;

10 always we carry with us in our body the death of Jesus so that the life of Jesus, too, may be visible in our body.

11 Indeed, while we are still alive, we are continually being handed over to death, for the sake of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus, too, may be visible in our mortal flesh.

12 In us, then, death is at work; in you, life.

13 But as we have the same spirit of faith as is described in scripture — I believed and therefore I spoke -we, too, believe and therefore we, too, speak,

14 realising that he who raised up the Lord Jesus will raise us up with Jesus in our turn, and bring us to himself — and you as well.

15 You see, everything is for your benefit, so that as grace spreads, so, to the glory of God, thanksgiving may also overflow among more and more people.

Responsorial Psalm: Psalms 116:10-11, 15-16, 17-18
10 My trust does not fail even when I say, ‘I am completely wretched.’

11 In my terror I said, ‘No human being can be relied on.’

15 Costly in Yahweh’s sight is the death of his faithful.

16 I beg you, Yahweh! I am your servant, I am your servant and my mother was your servant; you have undone my fetters.

17 I shall offer you a sacrifice of thanksgiving and call on the name of Yahweh.

18 I shall fulfil my vows to Yahweh, witnessed by all his people,

Gospel: Matthew 5:27-32
27 ‘You have heard how it was said, You shall not commit adultery.

28 But I say this to you, if a man looks at a woman lustfully, he has already committed adultery with her in his heart.

29 If your right eye should be your downfall, tear it out and throw it away; for it will do you less harm to lose one part of yourself than to have your whole body thrown into hell.

30 And if your right hand should be your downfall, cut it off and throw it away; for it will do you less harm to lose one part of yourself than to have your whole body go to hell.

31 ‘It has also been said, Anyone who divorces his wife must give her a writ of dismissal.

32 But I say this to you, everyone who divorces his wife, except for the case of an illicit marriage, makes her an adulteress; and anyone who marries a divorced woman commits adultery.

Catholic Daily Devotional

Topic: ‘Life After Life’

Text: So death is at work in us, but life in you. – 2 Corinthians 4:12

Message: “I’ve been thinking about something,” my tiny, auburn-haired grandmother would say, then she would lecture me about the length (or lack thereof) of my skirt, the amount of makeup I was wearing or the way I had spoken to my mother. Thirty-five years after her death, it still amazes me to see the signs of her physique and her bluntness in descendants who never knew her. I think of her every time I use her well-worn rosary. Her legacy goes on.

That’s the thing about love and faith. Not one of us is perfect at either. But whether it’s gentle (or not so gentle) correction or sharing a beloved prayer practice, we show others how important both they and the Lord are to us–and why they need to get better acquainted. Our legacy goes on in the way we encourage others to share the Good News.

Prayer: Father, use me as a vessel to water faith for generations to come.
