Jul 07, Invitatory for Tuesday of the 14th week of Ordinary Time

Lord, open my lips.
And my mouth will proclaim your praise.

Ant. Come, let us worship the Lord, our mighty God.

Psalm 100

Cry out with joy to the Lord, all the earth.
Serve the Lord with gladness.
Come before him, singing for joy.

Ant. Come, let us worship the Lord, our mighty God.

Know that he, the Lord, is God.
He made us, we belong to him,
we are his people, the sheep of his flock.

Ant. Come, let us worship the Lord, our mighty God.

Go within his gates, giving thanks.
Enter his courts with songs of praise.
Give thanks to him and bless his name.

Ant. Come, let us worship the Lord, our mighty God.

Indeed, how good is the Lord,
eternal his merciful love.
He is faithful from age to age.

Ant. Come, let us worship the Lord, our mighty God.

Glory to the Father, and to the Son,
and to the Holy Spirit:
as it was in the beginning, is now,
and will be for ever. Amen.

Ant. Come, let us worship the Lord, our mighty God.

July 15

Saint Bonaventure, Bishop and Doctor of the Church

Memorial

“Now just as no one comes to wisdom save through grace, justice, and knowledge, so none comes to contemplation save through penetrating meditation, holy conversation, and devout prayer.” [1]

St. Bonaventure was born near Orvieto in 1221, entered the Franciscan Order in his early twenties, and studied in Paris, where, in 1248, he received a doctorate in theology. In 1257, he was elected Minister General of the Order. In 1273, he became Cardinal of Albano and played a prominent role at the Council of Lyons, which aimed to unite the Latin and Greek Churches.

As a theologian, Bonaventure stressed the “mystical illumination which God sheds on the faithful Christian” [2] and sought to unite reason and faith. Classic works of his include the definitive Life of St. Francis, The Mind’s Road to God, and a commentary on Peter Lombard’s Sentences. He was canonized in 1482 and proclaimed a doctor of the Church in 1588 by Sixtus V.[3]
