SAINT OF THE DAY

St. Peter Damian

St. Peter Damian
(1007-1072 A.D.)
was born in Ravenna, Italy, the youngest of a large and noble yet poor family. After his birth his mother initially refused to nurse him due to the strain he would put on the family, and he nearly died. He was later orphaned and suffered from extreme poverty. One brother adopted him, but neglected him and treated him like a slave. Another brother, a priest, recognizing that Peter had great intelligence, took him in and provided for his education. Peter excelled in his studies and in religious piety. By the time he was twenty-five he became a professor famous for his work in theology and canon law. Bothered by the distractions of university life, at twenty-eight he left his position to become a Benedictine monk and to lead a quiet life of fervent prayer and self-mortification. He lived during a time of great corruption in the Church, and became heavily involved in the controversies and crises of the day, advocating for reform and greater discipline in religious life. He was an influential figure, a friend and adviser to both popes and emperors, and was made a bishop and cardinal. Due to his academic prowess and prolific theological writings, St. Peter Damian was declared a Doctor of the Church in 1823. His feast day is February 21.

Jesus preaching the beatitudes

Jesus came down with the twelve and stood on a stretch of level ground with a great crowd of his disciples and a large number of the people from all Judea and Jerusalem and the coastal region of Tyre and Sidon. And raising his eyes toward his disciples he said: “Blessed are you who are poor, for the kingdom of God is yours. Blessed are you who are now hungry, for you will be satisfied. Blessed are you who are now weeping, for you will laugh. Blessed are you when people hate you, and when they exclude and insult you, and denounce your name as evil on account of the Son of Man. Rejoice and leap for joy on that day! Behold, your reward will be great in heaven. For their ancestors treated the prophets in the same way. But woe to you who are rich, for you have received your consolation. Woe to you who are filled now, for you will be hungry. Woe to you who laugh now, for you will grieve and weep. Woe to you when all speak well of you, for their ancestors treated the false prophets in this way.”


Prayer to St. Michael
St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou, O Prince of the heavenly host, by the power of God, cast into hell Satan and all other evil spirits who prowl the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen

Now, as never before, the Church needs the intercession of St. Michael.
Please say this prayer every day.

Liturgical update:

Yes, Catholics can sing!

The ‘Responsorial Psalm’ is our way of saying ‘Yes, we agree, and we support what the first reading stated!’ There are many musical versions of Psalms available. The texts come from ‘The Book of Psalms’ (or songs) at the heart of the Old Testament, which are part of our Jewish-Christian heritage. We know Jesus himself prayed the Psalms; as did Mary, Joseph, the apostles and the first Christian martyrs! The Bible is the world's most popular book. It’s not just one book but a whole library of books. In this library, Psalms is the most popular and widely used book. Thus, Psalms is the most popular book in the world! The entire collection of 150 Psalms is by far the most popular poetry collection ever published in world history. It has been translated into almost every human language. After Vatican II, the Responsorial Psalm was born; where the cantor chants the verses and the faithful chant “the refrain” between the verses. Prayer and singing are actions. Psalms are songs as well as prayers.They are meant to be sung, not just read. The Psalms are more like sheet music than a tape or CD: we must play them on our own spiritual instruments; our singing voice.
