TODAY’S GOSPEL READING (LUKE 10:38-42)

(Week 27 of the year – Tuesday) 

MARTHA WELCOMED JESUS INTO HER HOUSE. IT IS MARY WHO HAS CHOSEN THE BETTER PART. 

Jesus came to a village, and a woman named Martha welcomed him into her house. She had a sister called Mary, who sat down at the Lord’s feet and listened to him speaking. Now Martha who was distracted with all the serving said, “Lord, do you not care that my sister is leaving me to do the serving all by myself? Please tell her to help me.” But the Lord answered: “Martha, Martha,” he said “you worry and fret about so many things, and yet few are needed, indeed only one. It is Mary who has chosen the better part; it is not to be taken from her.”

V. The Gospel of the Lord.
R. Praise to you, Lord Jesus Christ.

AT THE HOUR OF DEATH THE MASSES YOU HAVE HEARD WILL BE YOUR GREATEST CONSOLATION

AT THE HOUR OF DEATH THE MASSES YOU HAVE HEARD WILL BE YOUR GREATEST CONSOLATION

THE HOLY MASS

At the hour of death the Masses you have heard will be your greatest consolation. Every Mass will go with you to judgment and plead for pardon.

At every Mass you can diminish the temporal punishment due to your sins, more or less according to your fervour.

Assisting devoutly at Mass you render to the Sacred Humanity of Our Lord the greatest homage. You afford to the souls in Purgatory the greatest possible relief.

You are preserved from many dangers and misfortunes which would otherwise have befallen you.

You shorten your Purgatory by every Mass.

Every Mass wins you a higher degree of sanctifying grace here, and glory in heaven hereafter.

You are blessed in your temporal goods and affairs.

When you hear Mass and offer the Holy Sacrifice in honour of any particular Saint or Angel, thank God for the favour bestowed on him, etc., etc.

One Mass heard during your life will be of more benefit to you than many heard for you after your death. Therefore, try to hear Mass every day.

– From: St Anthony’s Treasury, 1916
