We’re reading from the Book of Amos this week, the farmer who became a prophet.

Cyril of Alexandria (Monday) and Irenaeus ( Tuesday) were early saints who helped define the faith we believe in as Christians. On Wednesday we celebrate the founders of our church, Peter and Paul, who were put to death in Rome during Nero’s persecution. That feast is followed onThursday by the remembrance of the unknown number of martyrs who died in the same persecution

On Saturday we celebrate one of the founders of the church in America, Juniper Serra.

The weekday gospel readings from Matthew describe Jesus gathering disciples after preaching on the mount, and the beginning of the opposition to him.
