READINGS OF THE DAY
 

 

 A reading from the Letter of St. Paul to the Galatians
GAL 4:22-24, 26-27, 31–5:1

Brothers and sisters:
It is written that Abraham had two sons,
one by the slave woman and the other by the freeborn woman.
The son of the slave woman was born naturally,
the son of the freeborn through a promise.
Now this is an allegory.
These women represent two covenants.
One was from Mount Sinai, bearing children for slavery;
this is Hagar.
But the Jerusalem above is freeborn, and she is our mother.
For it is written:
Rejoice, you barren one who bore no children;
break forth and shout, you who were not in labor;
for more numerous are the children of the deserted one
than of her who has a husband.
Therefore, brothers and sisters,
we are children not of the slave woman
but of the freeborn woman.

For freedom Christ set us free; so stand firm
and do not submit again to the yoke of slavery.

The word of the God.

GOSPEL OF THE DAY

From the Gospel according to Luke

 

 LK 11:29-32

While still more people gathered in the crowd, Jesus said to them,
“This generation is an evil generation;
it seeks a sign, but no sign will be given it,
except the sign of Jonah.
Just as Jonah became a sign to the Ninevites,
so will the Son of Man be to this generation.
At the judgment
the queen of the south will rise with the men of this generation
and she will condemn them,
because she came from the ends of the earth
to hear the wisdom of Solomon,
and there is something greater than Solomon here.
At the judgment the men of Nineveh will arise with this generation
and condemn it,
because at the preaching of Jonah they repented,
and there is something greater than Jonah here.”

Lord’s word.

OUR LADY OF APARECIDA

Three hundred years ago, October 12

Early on the morning of October 12, 1717, three Brazilian fishermen set out on the waters of the Paraiba River, which ran through their village. They were charged with providing the fish for the banquet that would be held a few days later in the village of Guarantinguetá on the occasion of the visit of the Count of Assumar, Don Pedro de Almeida, Governor of the Province of São Paulo and Minas Gerais, as he travelled to the town of Vila Rica. The three fishermen – Domingos Garcia, Filipe Pedroso, and João Alves – had had no luck that morning; they had been fishing for hours without catching anything. They had almost given up, when João Alves decided to give it one more try. He cast his net into the river and slowly began to draw it in. There was something there, but it wasn’t a fish… it seemed to be a piece of wood. When they pulled it out of the net, they saw that it was a statue of the Blessed Virgin Mary, with the head missing.

The miraculous catch

João cast his net into the waters once more, and pulling it in, he found another piece of wood which proved to be the statue’s head. As if in response to strange instinct, he cast his net a third time into the river. When he tried to pull it in, he found it was full of fish. Now his companions cast their nets as well, and likewise found themselves overwhelmed with an abundance of fish.

Popular veneration

Over the course of the next few days, the three fishermen cleaned and re-assembled the statue, and Filipe Pedroso placed it in his humble abode. Soon after, news of the miraculous catch spread to the neighbouring villages, and day-by-day more of their countrymen came to honour the Blessed Virgin and pray the Rosary. They gave her the name “Nossa Senhora da Conceição Aparecida,” that is, Our Lady of the Appeared Conception. As time went on, the crowds became so large that there was no longer room in the little hut. A small chapel was built, and later, in 1737, a larger one. Soon witnesses began to tell of many graces that were received from Our Lady, and of the many miracles that took place at the sanctuary.

The new church

In 1846 work began on a new church, which was completed in 1888. In 1904, the statue of Our Lady of Aparecida was crowned by order of Pope St Pius X. In 1930, Pope Pius XI declared Our Lady of Aparecida to be the Patroness of Brazil.

The first Pope to visit the Sanctuary

Pope St John Paul II became the first Pope to visit the Sanctuary of Aparecida, during his Apostolic Visit to Brazil in 1980. During his visit, he said, “What were the ancient pilgrims seeking? What are the pilgrims of today seeking? Precisely what they were seeking on the day, more or less distant, of Baptism: faith and the means of nourishing it. They seek the Sacraments of the Church, particularly Reconciliation with God and Eucharistic nourishment. And they set off again strengthened, and grateful to Our Lady the Mother of God and ours.”

PAROLE DU JOUR

LECTURE DU JOUR

Lecture de la lettre de saint Paul apôtre aux Galates
(Ga 4, 22-24.26-27.31 – 5, 1)

Frères,
il est écrit qu’Abraham a eu deux fils,
l’un né de la servante,
et l’autre de la femme libre.
Le fils de la servante a été engendré selon la chair ;
celui de la femme libre l’a été en raison d’une promesse de Dieu.
Ces événements ont un sens symbolique :
les deux femmes sont les deux Alliances.
La première Alliance, celle du mont Sinaï,
qui met au monde des enfants esclaves,
c’est Agar, la servante.
tandis que la Jérusalem d’en haut est libre,
et c’est elle, notre mère.
L’Écriture dit en effet :
Réjouis-toi, femme stérile, toi qui n’enfantes pas ;
éclate en cris de joie,
toi qui ne connais pas les douleurs de l’enfantement,
car les enfants de la femme délaissée sont plus nombreux
que ceux de la femme qui a son mari.
Dès lors, frères,
nous ne sommes pas les enfants d’une servante,
nous sommes ceux de la femme libre.
C’est pour que nous soyons libres
que le Christ nous a libérés.
Alors tenez bon,
ne vous mettez pas de nouveau sous le joug de l’esclavage.

ÉVANGILE DU JOUR

Évangile de Jésus Christ selon saint Luc
(Lc 11, 29-32)

En ce temps-là,
comme les foules s’amassaient,
Jésus se mit à dire :
« Cette génération est une génération mauvaise :
elle cherche un signe,
mais en fait de signe
il ne lui sera donné que le signe de Jonas.
Car Jonas a été un signe pour les habitants de Ninive ;
il en sera de même avec le Fils de l’homme
pour cette génération.
Lors du Jugement, la reine de Saba se dressera
en même temps que les hommes de cette génération,
et elle les condamnera.
En effet, elle est venue des extrémités de la terre
pour écouter la sagesse de Salomon,
et il y a ici bien plus que Salomon.
Lors du Jugement, les habitants de Ninive se lèveront
en même temps que cette génération,
et ils la condamneront ;
en effet, ils se sont convertis
en réponse à la proclamation faite par Jonas,
et il y a ici bien plus que Jonas.

30 Nam sicut Ionas fuit signum Ninevitis, ita erit et Filius hominis generationi isti.
31 Regina austri surget in iudicio cum viris generationis huius et condemnabit illos, quia venit a finibus terrae audire sapientiam Salomonis, et ecce plus Salomone hic.
32 Viri Ninevitae surgent in iudicio cum generatione hac et condemnabunt illam, quia paenitentiam egerunt ad praedicationem Ionae, et ecce plus Iona hic.
