The Book of Tobit
Chapter 13
"Tobit's Thanksgiving to God"

1 Then Tobit wrote a prayer of rejoicing, and said: "Blessed is God who lives for ever, and blessed is his kingdom. 2 For he afflicts, and he shows mercy; he leads down to Hades, and brings up again, and there is no one who can escape his hand. 3 Acknowledge him before the nations, O sons of Israel; for he has scattered us among them. 4 Make his greatness known there, and exalt him in the presence of all the living; because he is our Lord and God, he is our Father for ever. 5 He will afflict us for our iniquities; and again he will show mercy, and will gather us from all the nations among whom you have been scattered. 6 If you turn to him with all your heart and with all your soul, to do what is true before him, then he will turn to you and will not hide his face from you. But see what he will do with you; give thanks to him with your full voice. Praise the Lord of righteousness, and exalt the King of the ages. I give him thanks in the land of my captivity, and I show his power and majesty to a nation of sinners. Turn back, you sinners, and do right before him; who knows if he will accept you and have mercy on you?

Thirty-Third Sunday in Ordinary Time
Twenty-Fourth Sunday after Pentecost

After the week in which the Church Universal celebrated one of the holiest, bravest and savviest Bishops of Rome, Pope St. Leo the Great, and at the beginning of the week that will conclude with Saturday's celebration of the Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary, we can consider two examples of how God intervenes in the darkest of times. Amidst rampant civil malfeasance and widespread religious corruption, good souls can, with the help of Grace, remain pure.

Thirty-Second Sunday in Ordinary Time
Twenty-Third Sunday after Pentecost

1 We who are strong ought to bear with the failings of the weak, and not to please ourselves; 2 et each of us please his neighbor for his good, to edify him. 3 For Christ did not please himself; but, as it is written, "The reproaches of those who reproached thee fell on me." 4 For whatever was written in former days was written for our instruction, that by steadfastness and by the encouragement of the scriptures we might have hope. 5 May the God of steadfastness and encourage-ment grant you to live in such harmony with one another, in accord with Christ Jesus, 6 that together you may with one voice glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Romans 15,1-6

All you Saints of God, pray for us!
Let our praise of the Lord join your heavenly worship.
Help us to avoid inflicting on ourselves evil rulers.
Teach us to struggle virtuously against our persecutors.
