Daily Readings for Wednesday March 09, 2011 - Daily Readings - Bible

Morning by morning he makes my ear alert to listen like a disciple. 5 Lord Yahweh has opened my ear and I have not resisted, I have not turned away. 6 I have offered my back to those who struck me, my cheeks to those who plucked my beard; I have not turned my face away from insult and spitting. 7 Lord Yahweh comes to my help, this is why insult has not touched me, this is why I have set my face like flint and know that I shall not be put to shame. 8 He who grants me saving justice is near! 9 Look, Lord Yahweh is coming to my help! Responsorial Psalm, Psalms 69:8-10, 21-22, 31, 33-34 8 I am estranged from my brothers, alienated from my own mother's sons; 9 for I am eaten up with zeal for your house, and insults directed against you fall on me. 10 I mortify myself with fasting, and find myself insulted for it, Gospel, Matthew 26:14-25.

The animal stumbled and fell, leaving Peter in the mud and onlookers amused. Humbled, Peter reevaluated his motivations (his bishop-uncle had secured the cathedral post for him) and started down a new path. After retiring from the court, Peter devoted the remainder of his life to preaching in northwest Spain. Peter Gonzalez died in 1246 and was beatified in 1741.

The Perpetual Virginity of Mary (Jerome) Against Helvidius.

The Perpetual Virginity of Mary (Jerome)

This tract appeared about a.d. 383. The question which gave occasion to it was whether the Mother of our Lord remained a Virgin after His birth. Helvidius maintained that the mention in the Gospels of the sisters and brethren of our Lord was proof that the Blessed Virgin had subsequent issue, and he supported his opinion by the writings of Tertullian and Victorinus. The outcome of his views was that virginity was ranked below matrimony.

Jerome maintains against Helvidius three propositions:— 1st. 2d. 3d. 1. 2. 3.
