Liturgy – The Church is unfailingly holy: Christ has loved it like his spouse and has given himself for her, in order to sanctify her; this is why all in the Church are called to holiness. The Church preaches the Paschal Mystery in the Saints who have suffered with Christ and who are glorified with him, and proposes to the faithful their example to attract all to the Father through Christ and implores through their merits the benefits of God. Today in one only feast are celebrated together the canonized Carmelite Saints, all upright members of the Family of Carmel of every language, of every race and of every nation, whose names are written in the Book of Life.

“Una lacrima per i defunti evapora Un fiore sulla loro tomba appassisce Una preghiera per la loro anima la raccoglie Iddio” S. Agostino
Ciao Zia Mela Buon Compleanno – stai sempre nel nostro cuore – dopo tanti Rosari che ai detto ecco uno per te – Santo Rosario

Gospel – Lk 21:5-19
While some people were speaking about
how the temple was adorned with costly stones and votive offerings,
Jesus said, “All that you see here–
the days will come when there will not be left
a stone upon another stone that will not be thrown down.”

Then they asked him,
“Teacher, when will this happen?
And what sign will there be when all these things are about to happen?”
He answered,
“See that you not be deceived,
for many will come in my name, saying,
‘I am he,’ and ‘The time has come.’
Do not follow them!
When you hear of wars and insurrections,
do not be terrified; for such things must happen first,
but it will not immediately be the end.”
Then he said to them,
“Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom.
There will be powerful earthquakes, famines, and plagues
from place to place;
and awesome sights and mighty signs will come from the sky.

“Before all this happens, however,
they will seize and persecute you,
they will hand you over to the synagogues and to prisons,
and they will have you led before kings and governors
because of my name.
It will lead to your giving testimony.
Remember, you are not to prepare your defense beforehand,
for I myself shall give you a wisdom in speaking
that all your adversaries will be powerless to resist or refute.
You will even be handed over by parents, brothers, relatives, and friends,
and they will put some of you to death.
You will be hated by all because of my name,
but not a hair on your head will be destroyed.
By your perseverance you will secure your lives.”
