Today is the feast of St. Lawrence, Deacon and Martyr (d. 258), who when asked to collect the treasures of the church gathered the blind, lame, poor, widowed, orphaned and sick and said "These are the treasures of the church."
Take time today to pray for the people closest to you who are most in need of the prayers and care of the church.
St. Lawrence, pray for us.

Hello, can someone please recommend to me a great study Catholic Bible? One that is the best version that is closely, if not, is the same used in church? If one exists where it’s translated without gender inclusive wording and one where it has some interpretations afterwards or notes afterwards or explanations afterwards, something to guide those reading the Bible? I’m looking for myself and also for someone who is wanting to become a Catholic and is looking for a bible to understand and that is the best Catholic version closest to what is said in church. Thank you!
The translation used in the readings at mass are from The New American Bible. Many NAB Catholic editions have cross references and bible study tools to assist you. After that it’s just personal preference for features like book tabs, print and spine etc. Get what you really like. It will accompany you through a lifetime of faith!

FEAST OF LAWRENCE, DEACON, MARTYR
Be inspired by the martyrs among us
Lawrence, a Roman deacon who was martyred in 258, is one of the most venerated of saints, and there are many legends about his gruesome death, which prompted widespread conversions to Christianity in his city. Most Christians aren’t called to such spectacular sacrifice, but there are other types of martyrs—ordinary folks in every generation who face adversity with total commitment to God and sow the seeds of faith all around them. They are martyrs at the hands of disease, hatred, bigotry, selfishness, and cruelty. They fight the good fight and leave us all the better for it. Pray for that level of faith and perseverance.
Today's readings: 2 Corinthians 9:6-10; John 12:24-26
“Whoever loves his life loses it, and whoever hates his life in this world will preserve it for eternal life.” #takefiveforfaith ... See MoreSee Less
Having faith means keeping your heart turned to God, to His love, to His Fatherly tenderness, amid the storm. Jesus wanted to teach this to Peter and the disciples, and also to us today (Mt 14:22-33). #GospelOfTheDay

NINETEENTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME
Ghosts of the past, spirit of the present
Nagasaki was the second and last city to date to endure attack by atomic weapon. In the instant after the bomb’s release, 35,000 people were killed, mostly factory workers. Those factories, which supported the Japanese war effort, were the targets of the attack. It all made sense in a war room at the time. After the mushroom cloud clears, however, we have to reckon with the ghosts of our choices. The animated drama, In This Corner of the World, offers a moving reflection on the personal cost of these attacks on ordinary Japanese citizens. Pray for all victims of war, and for lasting world peace.
TODAY'S READINGS: 1 Kings 19:9a, 11-13a; Romans 9:1-5; Matthew 14:22-33
“The disciples saw him walking on the sea. . . . ‘It is a ghost,’ they said, and they cried out in fear.”

Kindness and truth shall meet;
justice and peace shall kiss.
Truth shall spring out of the earth,
and justice shall look down from heaven.
Lord, let us see your kindness, and grant us your salvation.
