A Prayer.


God of Mystery, and Shepherd of my soul,

your holiness surrounds and permeates all that I am.

You lead me to green pastures,

and refresh me with calm waters.

Even when I stumble through valleys of darkness

set me free from all fear.

With your beckoning whispers

and your staff which supports,

guide my soul along upright paths.

Grant me to dwell in your loving presence

today and forever. Amen.

Apr 7 - St John Baptist de la Salle (1651-1719)

Summary: St John Baptist de la Salle, priest. Born at Rheims (France) in 1651. Died at Rouen on this day in 1719. Ordained to the presbyterate in 1678 after seminary studies at Saint Sulpice in Paris. Pioneered schools for poor boys and the working classes, the training of teachers, and the care of disturbed children. Despite much internal conflict and external opposition, he formed his companions into the Brothers of the Christian Schools.  c/f  Australian Catholic lectionary


De La Salle 2St John-Baptist de la Salle founded an order of teaching brothers for the underprivileged: the order also specialised in teacher-training and in the care of reformatories; today there are 5,000 brothers in 80 countries worldwide. Patrick Duffy outlines the saint's life.

From a wealthy family
Born into a wealthy family at Reims in northern France, John-Baptist studied there as a boy. He received the clerical tonsure at 11 and became a canon of the cathedral at 16. He studied at the Seminary of St Sulpice in Paris, was ordained a priest in 1678 and received his doctorate in theology two years later.

A new concept
While he was serving as a priest at Reims, a layman, Adrial Nyel, who had opened free schools in Rouen asked John-Baptist to help do the same thing in Reims. Thinking at first this entailed just a marginal supervisory involvement, John-Baptist soon found that the teachers were not fully competent and decided to take them into his own house to train them. This caused a rift with his family. Two of his brothers left the house and five of the teachers left as well. But it was the beginning of a new concept of a community of men devoted to Christian teaching.

An apostolic religious order despite opposition
de la salle teachersSoon John-Baptist and twelve others took simple vows of obedience and became an apostolic religious congregation known as "the Brothers of the Christian Schools". Teaching was to be their way to attaining holiness. They started a training college for teachers in Reims in 1686. John-Baptist encountered opposition especially from those who felt that the poorer classes should not be educated beyond manual skills and from church authorities who disliked his new form of apostolic religious life.

No priests
Since he was himself a priest, John-Baptist thought it would be good to have priests in the order, but when the first candidate, Brother Henri L'Heureux, was ready for ordination, he suddenly fell sick and died. This upset John-Baptist, and on mature reflection, he decided not to have priests so the brothers could more easily live in humility and simplicity.

Expansion to Paris
The congregation expanded to Paris and Saint Denis. Here some of the Irish who had fled with King James II to France asked the Brothers to educate their children and they expanded into secondary education. In this way John-Baptist's ideas and methods spread more widely.

John Bastist de La Salle Patron of Teachers

De La Salle believed it was better to instruct his pupils through the vernacular (French) rather than through Latin, because in this way they could learn to read more easily. He also adopted the "simultaneous method" where pupils were graded according to their capacity, putting those of equal attainment in the same class, giving them the same text-books, and requiring them to follow the same lesson under one and the same teacher. Both these developments were innovations in educational method at the time.

Deposed for a time
Opposition within church circles led to John-Baptist being deposed by Cardinal Louis-Antoine de Noailles, archbishop of Paris, for a time and replaced as superior in 1702, but this was allowed to lapse through intense opposition to it by the brothers themselves. However, some confrères did leave the order. Eventually at a chapter held in 1717 his trusted colleague Brother Barthélemy was elected superior and John-Baptist resigned.

De la SalleDeath and influence
Two years later John-Baptist died on Good Friday 7th April 1719. Pope Leo XIII canonised him in 1900 and Pope Pius XII declared him patron of teachers in 1950. The De La Salle Brothers have about 5,000 members today working in 80 countries worldwide.

Tuesday in Holy Week


A reading from the prophet Isaiah          49:1-6
I will make you the light of the nations so that my salvation may reach to the ends of the earth.

Islands, listen to me,
pay attention, remotest peoples.
The Lord called me before I was born,
from my mother's womb he pronounced my name.

He made my mouth a sharp sword,
and hid me in the shadow of his hand.
He made me into a sharpened arrow,
and concealed me in his quiver.

He said to me, 'You are my servant Israel
in whom I shall be glorified';
while I was thinking, 'I have toiled in vain,
I have exhausted myself for nothing';

and all the while my cause was with the Lord,
my reward with my God.
I was honoured in the eyes of the Lord,
my God was my strength.

And now the Lord has spoken,
he who formed me in the womb to be his servant,
to bring Jacob back to him,
to gather Israel to him:

'It is not enough for you to be my servant,
to restore the tribes of Jacob and bring back the survivors of Israel;
I will make you the light of the nations
so that my salvation may reach to the ends of the earth.'

The Word of the Lord.

Gospel  Acclamation
Glory and praise to you, O Christ !
Hail to you our King!
Obedient to the Father,
you were led to your crucifixion
as a meek lamb is led to the slaughter.
Glory and praise to you, O Christ !


A reading from the holy Gospel according to John         13:21-33, 36-38  
One of you will betray me; before the cock crows you will have disowned me three times.

While at supper with his disciples, Jesus was troubled in spirit and declared, 'I tell you most solemnly, one of you will betray me.' The disciples looked at one another, wondering which he meant. The disciple Jesus loved was reclining next to Jesus; Simon Peter signed to him and said, 'Ask who it is he means', so leaning back on Jesus' breast he said, 'Who is it, Lord?' 'lt is the one' replied Jesus 'to whom I give the piece of bread that I shall dip in the dish.' He dipped the piece of bread and gave it to Judas son of Simon Iscariot. At that instant, after Judas had taken the bread, Satan entered him. Jesus then said, 'What you are going to do, do quickly.' None of the others at table understood the reason he said this. Since Judas had charge of the common fund, some of them thought Jesus was telling him, 'Buy what we need for the festival', or telling him to give something to the poor. As soon as Judas had taken the piece of bread he went out. Night had fallen. When he had gone Jesus said:

'Now has the Son of Man been glorified,
and in him God has been glorified.
If God has been glorified in him,
God will in turn glorify him in himself,
and will glorify him very soon.
My little children,
I shall not be with you much longer.
You will look for me,
and, as I told the Jews,
where I am going,
you cannot come.'
Simon Peter said, 'Lord, where are you going?'
Jesus replied, 'Where I am going you cannot follow me now; you will follow me later'. Peter said to him, 'Why can't I follow you now? I will lay down my life for you.'
'Lay down your life for me?' answered Jesus.
'I tell you most solemnly, before the cock crows you will have disowned me three times.

Gospel Reflection             Tuesday in Holy Week         John 13:21-33, 36-38

Today’s gospel reading from John comes immediately after Jesus washed the feet of his disciples. He washed all of their feet, including the feet of Judas Iscariot. Jesus loved his disciples until the end and his love showed no discrimination. The gospel reading goes on to portray Jesus as showing Judas a special sign of affection. For a host to take a morsel of food and dip it in the sauce and give it to one of the guests was a gesture of honour and affection in that culture. Jesus’ final outreach of love to Judas, enacted in the gift of the morsel, is rebuffed. On receiving the morsel, Judas promptly leaves the company of Jesus and the other disciples and goes out into the darkness of the night. The evangelist is implying that Jesus’ love for Judas was never in doubt. Yet, Jesus seemed helpless before the freedom of Judas to refuse his love. The Lord’s love for us is never in doubt, but he can never force our loving response. Yet, even Judas’ dark deed would serve God’s greater purpose, rooted in God’s love for the world. That is why, when Judas left the room, Jesus could exclaim, ‘Now has the Son of Man been glorified, and in him God has been glorified’. We are being reminded that even our failings can somehow serve God’s purpose of drawing all people to himself through his Son. Even when, like Judas, we head out into the darkness, God’s light is not extinguished. The light of God’s love continues to shine and to pursue us.

Sliocht as Leabhar Íseáia, Fáidh               49:1-6
Ceapfaidh mé thú i do sholas do na ciníocha, chun go dté mo shlánú go críocha na cruinne.

A insí na farraige, éistigí liomsa;
tugaigí aire, a chiníocha i gcéin!
Ghairm an Tiarna mé sa bhroinn dom,
agus mé i gcoim mo mháthar luaigh sé m’ainm.

Rinne sé claíomh faobhrach de mo bhéal,
chuir sé i bhfolach mé faoi scáth a láimhe.
Saighead líofa a rinne sé díom,
agus leag sé thart mé ina bholgán saighead.

Dúirt sé liom: “Is tú mo ghiolla Iosrael
trína saothróidh mé glóir dom féin.”
Agus bhí mise á rá liom féin: “Tá mo shaothar in aisce agam,
tá mo neart caite agam gan éifeacht.

Ach bhí mo cheart le fáil agam i bhfochair mo Thiarna,
agus mo chúiteamh i bhfochair mo Dhé.
Bhí maise orm i súile an Tiarna,
ba é mo Dhia mo neart.

Agus anois tá an Tiarna tar éis labhairt,
an té a dhealbhaigh mé ón mbroinn i leith i mo ghiolla dó,
le go mbailínn Iacób ar ais chuige,
le go gcruinnínn Iosrael le chéile dó:

“Is fánach an mhaise duit a bheith i do ghiolla agam
chun treibheanna Iacóib amháin a thabhairt chucu féin,
chun ar slánaíodh d’Iosrael a thabhairt ar ais.
Ceapfaidh mé thú i do sholas do na ciníocha,
chun go dté mo shlánú go críocha na cruinne.”

Briathar Dé.

Salm le Freagra           Ps 70
Freagra                            Fógróidh mo bhéal d’fhíréantacht.     

1. Ortsa, a Thiarna, atá mo thriall;
nár dhéantar mo náiriú go deo.
Fuascail mé i d’fhíréantacht agus saor mé;
claon chugam do chluas agus tarrthaigh mé.         Freagra

2. Bí agam i do charraig dhídine,
i do dhúnfort daingean do mo tharrtháil;
óir is tú mo charraig is mo dhún.
Fuascail mé as láimh an urchóidigh.                        Freagra

3. Óir is leat atá mé ag feitheamh, a Thiarna;
a Dhia, is tú mo dhóchas ó m’óige.
Is ort atá mo sheasamh ó rugadh mé,
ó bhroinn mo mháthar ba thú mo dhídean.            Freagra

4. Fógróidh mo bhéal d’fhíréantacht
agus do chúnamh ó lá go chéile
óir ní fios dom a líon ná a n-áireamh.
Thug tú teagasc dom ó m’óige, a Dhia,
agus bhíos ag fógairt do mhóréachtaí go dtí seo.  Freagra

Sliocht as an Soiscéal naofa de réir Naomh Eoin          13:21-33, 36-38    
Déanfaidh duine agaibh mé a bhrath, ní ghlaofaidh an coileach sula séanfaidh tú mé trí huaire!

Nuair a bhi Íosa ag caitheamh an tsuipéir in éineacht lena dheisceabail, tháinig suaitheadh spioraid air, thug fianaise agus dúirt: “Amen, Amen, a deirim libh, déanfaidh duine agaibh mé a bhrath.” D’fhéach na deisceabail ar a chéile ansin agus iad in amhras i dtaobh cé air ar labhair sé. Bhí ina luí agus a cheann in ucht Íosa, duine dá dheisceabail a raibh grá ag Íosa dó. Rinne Síomón Peadar comharthaí sóirt leis sin dá bhrí sin agus dúirt: “Fiafraigh cé hé a deir sé.” Luigh seisean mar sin ar bhrollach Íosa agus dúirt leis: “Cé hé féin, a Thiarna?” D’fhreagair Íosa dá bhrí sin: “An té dá dtabharfaidh mise an bruan aráin a thumfaidh mé, sin é é.” Ansin thum sé an bruan agus thug sé do Iúdás mac Shíomóin Isceiriót é. Ansin díreach i ndiaidh an bhruain, chuaigh Sátan isteach ann. Dúirt Íosa leis dá bhrí sin: “A bhfuil agat á dhéanamh, déan go tapa é!” Ní raibh a fhios ag aon duine den chuideachta ag an mbord cad chuige a dúirt sé é sin leis; óir shíl cuid acu, ós rud é go raibh an sparán ag Iúdás, go raibh Íosa á rá léis: “Ceannaigh a bhfuil de dhíth orainn don fhéile; nó rud éigin a thabhairt do na boicht.” Thóg seisean an bruan dá bhrí sin agus d’imigh sé amach gan mhoill. Bhí an oíche ann. Nuair a d’imigh sé amach, dúirt Íosa:

“Tá glóir faighte ag Mac an Duine anois,
agus tá glóir faighte ag Dia ann.
Má fuair Dia glóir ann,
tabharfaidh Dia glóir dósan ann féin,
agus tabharfaidh sé glóir dó gan mhoill.
A chlann ó, is gearr eile atá agam in bhur bhfochair.
Beidh sibh ar mo lorg,
agus faoi mar a dúirt mé leis na Giúdaigh,
deirim libhse arís:
An áit ina bhfuilimse ag dul
ní féidir daoibhse teacht.’

Dúirt Síomón Peadar leis: “A Thiarna, cá bhfuil tú ag dul?”
D’fhreagair Íosa é:

“Mar a bhfuilimse ag dul, ní féidir leat mé a leanúint anois, ach leanfaidh tú mé níos déanaí.”

Dúirt Peadar leis: “A Thiarna, cad chuige nach féidir dom thú a leanúint anois? Tabharfaidh mé m’anam ar do shon.”

D’fhreagair Íosa: “An dtabharfaidh tú d’anam ar mo shon? Amen, Amen, a deirim leat ní ghlaofaidh an coileach sula séanfaidh tú mé trí huaire!

Soiscéal Dé.

A reading from the Acts of the Apostles        10:34. 37-43
We have eaten and drunk with him after his resurrection.

Peter addressed Cornelius and his household: 'You must have heard about the recent happenings in Judaea; about Jesus of Nazareth and how he began in ResurrectionGalilee, after John had been preaching baptism. God had anointed him with the Holy Spirit and with power, and because God was with him, Jesus went about doing good and curing all who had fallen into the power of the devil. Now I, and those with me, can witness to everything he did throughout the countryside of Judaea and in Jerusalem itself: and also to the fact that they killed him by hanging him on a tree, yet three days afterwards God raised him to life and allowed him to be seen, not by the whole people but only by certain witnesses God had chosen beforehand. Now we are those witnesses - we have eaten and drunk with him after his resurrection from the dead - and he has ordered us to proclaim this to his people and to tell them that God has appointed him to judge everyone, alive or dead. It is to him that all the prophets bear this witness: that all who believe in Jesus will have their sins forgiven through his name.'

You must look for the things that are in heaven, where Christ is.

ince you have been brought back to true life with Christ, you must look for the things that are in heaven, where Christ is, sitting at God's right hand. Let your thoughts be on heavenly things, not on the things that are on the earth, because you have died, and now the life you have is hidden with Christ in God. But when Christ is revealed - and he is your life - you too will be revealed in all your glory with him.

A reading from the Gospel according to  John               20:1-9
He must rise from the dead.

It was very early on the first day of the week and still dark, when Mary of Magdala came to the tomb. She saw that the stone had been moved away from the tomb and came running to Simon Peter and the other disciple, the one Jesus loved. 'They have taken the Lord out of the tomb' she said 'and we don't know where they have put him.'

peter at tombSo Peter set out with the other disciple to go to the tomb.

They ran together, but the other disciple, running faster than Peter, reached the tomb first; he bent down and saw the linen cloths lying on the ground, but did not go in.

Simon Peter who was following now came up, went right into the tomb, saw the linen cloths on the ground, and also the cloth that had been over his head; this was not with the linen cloths but rolled up in a place by itself.

Then the other disciple who had reached the tomb first also went in; he saw and he believed. Till this moment they had failed to understand the teaching of scripture, that he must rise from the dead.

Agus is finnéithe sinn ar gach ní dá ndearna sé i dtír na nGiúdach agus in Iarúsailéim. Chuir siad chun báis é á chrochadh ar chrann, ach thóg Dia ón mbás an treas lá é agus thug le feiceáil é, ní don phobal ar fad é, ach do na finnéithe a bhí réamhcheaptha ag Dia, is é sin le rá, dúinne. Chaitheamar bia agus deoch ina theannta tar éis a aiséirithe ó mhairbh agus d’ordaigh sé dúinn a fhógairt don phobal agus a dhearbhú gurb é atá ceaptha ag Dia ina bhreitheamh ar bheo agus ar mhairbh.

Níorbh fholáir é a aiséirí ó mhairbh.

peter at tombAn chéad lá den tseachtain tháinig Máire Mhaigdiléana go moch, agus an dorchadas fós ann, chun an tuama agus chonaic sí an líog aistrithe ón tuama. Rith sí ansin agus tháinig sí go dtí Síomón Peadar agus go dtí an deisceabal úd eile ab ionúin le Íosa. “Thog siad an Tiarna as an tuama,” ar sí leo, “agus níl a fhios againn cár chuir siad é.”

Amach le Peadar agus leis an deisceabal eile ansin agus chuaigh siad chun an tuama. Chrom siad a mbeirt ar rith in éineacht agus rith an deisceabal eile níos luaithe ná Peadar agus is é is túisce a tháinig go dtí an tuama. Nuair a chrom sé síos chonaic sé na línéadaí ina luí ansiúd, ach ní dheachaigh sé isteach. Ansin tháinig Síomón Peadar ina dhiaidh agus chuaigh sé isteach sa tuama, agus chonaic sé na línéadaí agus an brat a bhí ar a cheann – ní i dteannta na línéadaí a bhí sé, ach fillte in aon áit amháin leis féin. Ansin. an deisceabal eile, a tháinig ar dtús chun an tuama, chuaigh sé isteach agus chonaic agus chreid sé. Óir níor thuig siad go fóill an scrioptúr nárbh fholáir é a aiséirí ó mhairbh.
