St. Katharine Drexel

1st Reading: Sir 27:5-8:
The kiln tests the potter’s handiwork; a man is tested by his conversation. A well-tended tree is shown by its fruits, so a man’s feelings can be detected in what he says. Praise no one before he has spoken, since this is the acid test. If you pursue righteousness you will achieve it and wear it like a festive garment.

2nd Reading: 1 Cor 15:54-58:
When our perishable being puts on imperishable life, when our mortal being puts on immortality, the word of Scripture will be fulfilled: Death has been swallowed up by victory. Death, where is your victory? Death, where is your sting? Sin is the sting of death, to kill, and the law is what gives force to sin. But give thanks to God, who gives us the victory, through Christ Jesus, our Lord. So then, my dear brothers and sisters, be steadfast, and do not be moved. Improve constantly, in the work of the Lord, knowing that, with him, your labor is not without fruit.

Sometimes it is easy to see why Jesus chose Peter as the foundation of our church.

Although he certainly made some mistakes, Peter was blessed with childlike faith, and he witnessed Christ’s greatest miracles.

Jesus appears with Moses and Elijah as He is transfigured in this week’s Gospel reading.

Peter must be as shocked as those with him, but in faith he says to Jesus, “Master, it is good that we are here.”

Peter knows this event is a blessing from God, meant for him and the Apostles.

The miracles we experience each day are smaller, but can still be sources of joy for us. We take time to acknowledge the good God provides for us and continue to express our gratitude to God.

1st Reading: 1 Sm 26:2, 7-9, 12-13, 22-23:
On hearing this, Saul went down with three thousand picked men of Israel to the desert of Ziph in search of David. So, that night, David and Abishai went into the camp and found Saul sleeping in the center, his spear thrust into the ground at his head, while Abner and the rest of the soldiers were sleeping around him. Abishai said to David, “God has delivered your enemy into your hands this day. Let me nail him to the ground with one thrust of the spear; I will not repeat it.” But David answered Abishai, “Do not harm him.

It is a certainty in life that things will change. There are times when we enjoy the changes and other times when they can be painful.

There are also things in our lives that remain constant. The same could be said of God.

If there is something we can be sure of it is God’s fidelity.

Seven Founders of the Order of Servites

1st Reading: Jer 17:5-8:
This is what Yahweh says, “Cursed is the man who trusts in human beings and depends on a mortal for his life, while his heart is drawn away from Yahweh! He is like a bunch of thistles in dry land, in parched desert places, in a salt land where no one lives and who never finds happiness. Blessed is the man who puts his trust in Yahweh and whose confidence is in him! He is like a tree planted by the water, sending out its roots towards the stream. He has no fear when the heat comes, his leaves are always green; the year of drought is no problem and he can always bear fruit.
