St. Polycarp, Bishop, Martyr (Commemoration)
First Reading:
Psalm:
Gospel:
Deuteronomy 30:15-20
Psalm 1:1-4, 6
Luke 9:22-25

The first stage of contemplation, dear brothers, is constantly to consider what God wants, what is pleasing to him, and what is acceptable in his eyes. We all offend in many things; our strengths cannot match the rectitude of God's will, being neither one with it nor wholly in accord with it; let us then humble ourselves under the powerful hand of the most high God and be concerned to show ourselves unworthy before His merciful gaze, saying: Heal me, Lord, and I shall be healed; save me and I shall be saved. And again, Lord, have mercy on me; heal my soul because I have sinned against you.

-- St Bernard
