READING OF THE DAY

A reading from the First Letter of John
1 Jn 5:5-13

Beloved:
Who indeed is the victor over the world
but the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?

This is the one who came through water and Blood, Jesus Christ,
not by water alone, but by water and Blood.
The Spirit is the one who testifies,
and the Spirit is truth.
So there are three who testify,
the Spirit, the water, and the Blood,
and the three are of one accord.
If we accept human testimony,
the testimony of God is surely greater.
Now the testimony of God is this,
that he has testified on behalf of his Son.
Whoever believes in the Son of God
has this testimony within himself.
Whoever does not believe God has made him a liar
by not believing the testimony God has given about his Son.
And this is the testimony:
God gave us eternal life,
and this life is in his Son.
Whoever possesses the Son has life;
whoever does not possess the Son of God does not have life.

I write these things to you so that you may know
that you have eternal life,
you who believe in the name of the Son of God.

GOSPEL OF THE DAY

From the Gospel according to Luke
Lk 5:12-16

It happened that there was a man full of leprosy in one of the towns where Jesus was;
and when he saw Jesus,
he fell prostrate, pleaded with him, and said,
“Lord, if you wish, you can make me clean.”
Jesus stretched out his hand, touched him, and said,
“I do will it. Be made clean.”
And the leprosy left him immediately.
Then he ordered him not to tell anyone, but
“Go, show yourself to the priest and offer for your cleansing
what Moses prescribed; that will be proof for them.”
The report about him spread all the more,
and great crowds assembled to listen to him
and to be cured of their ailments,
but he would withdraw to deserted places to pray.

ST LAWRENCE GIUSTINIANI

  St Lawrence became the first Patriarch of Venice in 1451. He was a great reformer of the Church, especially through his writing and his example. A nobleman by birth, Lawrence did not hesitate to beg for alms, calling it a “victory over himself”. He was canonized by Alexander VIII in 1690.

Valencia es una ciudad de Venezuela, capital y ciudad más poblada del Estado Carabobo, situada en la Región Central del país. ​ La ciudad de Valencia es conocida como Capital Industrial de Venezuela debido a que alberga una cantidad de zonas Industriales del país. De igual forma, se ha convertido en un centro de inversión, objeto de proyectos como el World Trade Center Valencia y el Complejo Isla Multiespacio. El PIB de la ciudad se ubica alrededor de los USD$24.443 millones, un per cápita nominal de 11825$ y un pib ppa per cápita de 20470$ [4]. En 2010 el GaWC (Globalization and World Cities), incluyó a la ciudad de Valencia en su listado, siendo ésta y Caracas las únicas ciudades de Venezuela en el ranking, clasificándola como una Ciudad de Suficiencia.​

Según un estudio del Instituto Nacional de Estadísticas (INE) la ciudad posee una población para el 2019 de 1.619.470 en los cinco municipios que componen la ciudad, mientras que toda el área metropolitana posee una población estimada de 2.169.655 habitantes, convirtiéndose en la ciudad más poblada de la Región Central, la tercera más poblada de Venezuela después de Caracas y Maracaibo. Es también la principal ciudad de la región metropolitana Valencia-Maracay, que con alrededor de 4.5 millones de habitantes, es la segunda más poblada del país, después de Caracas.

La ciudad se compone de cinco municipios autónomos distintos: Municipio Valencia, Municipio Naguanagua, Municipio San Diego, Municipio Libertador y Municipio Los Guayos, teniendo cada uno de esos sus respectivos alcaldes con atribuciones administrativas propias. La legislación local establece que las autoridades propiciarán una iniciativa para crear un distrito metropolitano si se llegase a elevar la Parroquia Miguel Peña a nivel de municipio.​ 

A la ciudad se le designó inicialmente con el nombre oficial de Nueva Valencia del Rey, posteriormente Nuestra Señora de la Anunciación de la Nueva Valencia del Rey y Nuestra Señora del Socorro de la Nueva Valencia del Rey. Finalmente, en la constitución del Estado Carabobo de 1991 se le refiere simplemente como Valencia. El nombre fue dado en honor a la ciudad de Valencia de Don Juan ubicada en la Provincia de León del actual Reino de España.

Valencia fue capital de Venezuela en tres ocasiones: en 1812 momento en el que los poderes públicos del Gobierno provisional se trasladaron allí durante la Guerra de Independencia de Venezuela, y provisionalmente tanto en 1830 con la disolución de la Gran Colombia como en 1858 cuando triunfó la Revolución de Marzo.

Durante la Guerra de Independencia, Valencia fue teatro de grandes acontecimientos, contándose como el más célebre de ellos a la Batalla de Carabobo el 24 de junio de 1821, ya que luego de seis días (el 30 de junio de 1821) se creó allí el Concejo Municipal, que vino a ser el primero de Venezuela. Valencia ha gozado de fuero universitario desde 1852, cuando se crearon cuatro facultades universitarias en el Colegio Nacional de Primera Categoría que luego de diversas transformaciones pasó a ser lo que se conoce en la actualidad como la Universidad de Carabobo, siendo el punto de partida para el nacimiento de múltiples institutos de educación superior que han surgido en la región.

READING OF THE DAY

A reading from the First Letter of John

1 Jn 4:11-18

Beloved, if God so loved us,
we also must love one another.
No one has ever seen God.
Yet, if we love one another, God remains in us,
and his love is brought to perfection in us.

This is how we know that we remain in him and he in us,
that he has given us of his Spirit.
Moreover, we have seen and testify
that the Father sent his Son as savior of the world.
Whoever acknowledges that Jesus is the Son of God,
God remains in him and he in God.
We have come to know and to believe in the love God has for us.

God is love, and whoever remains in love remains in God and God in him.
In this is love brought to perfection among us,
that we have confidence on the day of judgment
because as he is, so are we in this world.
There is no fear in love,
but perfect love drives out fear
because fear has to do with punishment,
and so one who fears is not yet perfect in love.

GOSPEL OF THE DAY

From the Gospel according to Mark
Mk 6:45-52

After the five thousand had eaten and were satisfied,
Jesus made his disciples get into the boat
and precede him to the other side toward Bethsaida,
while he dismissed the crowd.
And when he had taken leave of them,
he went off to the mountain to pray.
When it was evening,
the boat was far out on the sea and he was alone on shore.
Then he saw that they were tossed about while rowing,
for the wind was against them.
About the fourth watch of the night,
he came toward them walking on the sea.
He meant to pass by them.
But when they saw him walking on the sea,
they thought it was a ghost and cried out.
They had all seen him and were terrified.
But at once he spoke with them,
“Take courage, it is I, do not be afraid!”
He got into the boat with them and the wind died down.
They were completely astounded.
They had not understood the incident of the loaves.
On the contrary, their hearts were hardened.

 

PAROLE DU JOUR

LECTURE DU JOUR

Lecture de la première lettre de saint Jean
(1 Jn 4, 11-18)

Bien-aimés,
puisque Dieu nous a tellement aimés,

nous devons, nous aussi, nous aimer les uns les autres.
Dieu, personne ne l’a jamais vu.
Mais si nous nous aimons les uns les autres,
Dieu demeure en nous,
et, en nous, son amour atteint la perfection.
Voici comment nous reconnaissons
que nous demeurons en lui
et lui en nous :
il nous a donné part à son Esprit.
Quant à nous, nous avons vu et nous attestons
que le Père a envoyé son Fils
comme Sauveur du monde.

Celui qui proclame que Jésus est le Fils de Dieu,
Dieu demeure en lui,
et lui en Dieu.
Et nous, nous avons reconnu l’amour que Dieu a pour nous,
et nous y avons cru.
Dieu est amour :
qui demeure dans l’amour demeure en Dieu,
et Dieu demeure en lui.
Voici comment l’amour atteint, chez nous, sa perfection :
avoir de l’assurance au jour du jugement ;
comme Jésus, en effet, nous ne manquons pas
d’assurance en ce monde.
Il n’y a pas de crainte dans l’amour,
l’amour parfait bannit la crainte ;
car la crainte implique un châtiment,
et celui qui reste dans la crainte
n’a pas atteint la perfection de l’amour.

ÉVANGILE DU JOUR

Évangile de Jésus Christ selon saint Marc
(Mc 6, 45-52)

Aussitôt après avoir nourri les cinq mille hommes,
Jésus obligea ses disciples à monter dans la barque
et à le précéder sur l’autre rive, vers Bethsaïde,
pendant que lui-même renvoyait la foule.
Quand il les eut congédiés,
il s’en alla sur la montagne pour prier.
Le soir venu, la barque était au milieu de la mer
et lui, tout seul, à terre.
Voyant qu’ils peinaient à ramer,
car le vent leur était contraire,
il vient à eux vers la fin de la nuit
en marchant sur la mer,
et il voulait les dépasser.
En le voyant marcher sur la mer,
les disciples pensèrent que c’était un fantôme
et ils se mirent à pousser des cris.
Tous, en effet, l’avaient vu et ils étaient bouleversés.
Mais aussitôt Jésus parla avec eux et leur dit :
« Confiance ! c’est moi ; n’ayez pas peur ! »
Il monta ensuite avec eux dans la barque
et le vent tomba ;
et en eux-mêmes
ils étaient au comble de la stupeur,
car ils n’avaient rien compris au sujet des pains :
leur cœur était endurci.

1 Jn 4:7-10

Beloved, let us love one another,
because love is of God;
everyone who loves is begotten by God and knows God.
Whoever is without love does not know God, for God is love.
In this way the love of God was revealed to us:
God sent his only-begotten Son into the world
so that we might have life through him.
In this is love:
not that we have loved God, but that he loved us
and sent his Son as expiation for our sins.

GOSPEL OF THE DAY

From the Gospel according to Mark
Mk 6:34-44

When Jesus saw the vast crowd, his heart was moved with pity for them,
for they were like sheep without a shepherd;
and he began to teach them many things.
By now it was already late and his disciples approached him and said,
“This is a deserted place and it is already very late.
Dismiss them so that they can go
to the surrounding farms and villages
and buy themselves something to eat.”
He said to them in reply,
“Give them some food yourselves.”
But they said to him,
“Are we to buy two hundred days’ wages worth of food
and give it to them to eat?”
He asked them, “How many loaves do you have? Go and see.”
And when they had found out they said,
“Five loaves and two fish.”
So he gave orders to have them sit down in groups on the green grass.
The people took their places in rows by hundreds and by fifties.
Then, taking the five loaves and the two fish and looking up to heaven,
he said the blessing, broke the loaves, and gave them to his disciples
to set before the people;
he also divided the two fish among them all.
They all ate and were satisfied.
And they picked up twelve wicker baskets full of fragments
and what was left of the fish.
Those who ate of the loaves were five thousand men.

WORD OF THE DAY

READING OF THE DAY

A reading from the first Letter of John
1 Jn 3:22–4:6

Beloved:
We receive from him whatever we ask,
because we keep his commandments and do what pleases him.
And his commandment is this:
we should believe in the name of his Son, Jesus Christ,
and love one another just as he commanded us.
Those who keep his commandments remain in him, and he in them,
and the way we know that he remains in us
is from the Spirit whom he gave us.

Beloved, do not trust every spirit
but test the spirits to see whether they belong to God,
because many false prophets have gone out into the world.
This is how you can know the Spirit of God:
every spirit that acknowledges Jesus Christ come in the flesh
belongs to God,
and every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus
does not belong to God.
This is the spirit of the antichrist
who, as you heard, is to come,
but in fact is already in the world.
You belong to God, children, and you have conquered them,
for the one who is in you
is greater than the one who is in the world.
They belong to the world;
accordingly, their teaching belongs to the world,
and the world listens to them.
We belong to God, and anyone who knows God listens to us,
while anyone who does not belong to God refuses to hear us.
This is how we know the spirit of truth and the spirit of deceit.

GOSPEL OF THE DAY

From the Gospel according to Matthew
Mt 4:12-17, 23-25

When Jesus heard that John had been arrested,
he withdrew to Galilee.
He left Nazareth and went to live in Capernaum by the sea,
in the region of Zebulun and Naphtali,
that what had been said through Isaiah the prophet
might be fulfilled:

Land of Zebulun and land of Naphtali,
the way to the sea, beyond the Jordan,
Galilee of the Gentiles,
the people who sit in darkness
have seen a great light,
on those dwelling in a land overshadowed by death
light has arisen.

From that time on, Jesus began to preach and say,
«Repent, for the Kingdom of heaven is at hand.»

He went around all of Galilee,
teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the Gospel of the Kingdom,
and curing every disease and illness among the people.
His fame spread to all of Syria,
and they brought to him all who were sick with various diseases
and racked with pain,
those who were possessed, lunatics, and paralytics,
and he cured them.
And great crowds from Galilee, the Decapolis, Jerusalem, and Judea,
and from beyond the Jordan followed him.
