For the next 4 weeks our first weekday reading will be from Paul’s Letter to the Romans, considered the most important statement of his teaching. Appropriately, the responsorial psalm  for Monday proclaims: “The Lord has made known his salvation. All the ends of the earth have seen the salvation by our God.”

In Luke’s gospel, also on Monday, Jesus recalls the mission of Jonah and the conversion of Nineveh, a reminder of God’s saving plan for the world, which Paul the Apostle will forcefully proclaim.

Saint John XXIII, whom I was privileged to meet one memorable day in Rome, is remembered this Monday. Callistus, a slave who became an early pope is Thursday’s saint. St. Theresa of Avila, and women saints like Hedwig and Margaret Mary Alacoque are remembered later this week.  

The readings can be found at this site.
