We hear this week from Zechariah, like Haggai, a prophetic voice in the Restoration Period. He (scholars say there are two writing under the name) urges the temple be rebuilt and promises Jerusalem will regain its place, in fact all nations will come to make it a greater kingdom, but it will not be soon. Joining Zechariah are Nehemiah and Baruch, also prophets who spoke during the Restoration Period.
Important saints this week: Vincent de Paul, Jerome, Therese of the Child. Jesus. Saint Lawrence Ruiz, an important saint for the Philippines, was among 15 others martyred in Japan September 28, 1637.
Archangels Michael, Gabriel and Raphael are celebrated September 29 and Guardian Angels October 2.
The gospel readings Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday are from Luke 9-10. As usual, on feasts like those for the angels, the readings from the gospels that reference them are read.
Morning and Evening Prayer, Week 2, here.
