… to Holy Spirit for blesssed time of the World Youth Day: Bearing in mind that the human soul hesitates to welcome the word of God, let us address the Spirit with this ardent liturgical prayer: Veni Creator Spiritus Mentes tuorum visitas, Imple superna gratia, Quae tu creasti pectora. Come, O Creator Spirit, Visit the souls of those who belong to you; Fill with your grace from on high The hearts which you have made. In this prayer we open our hearts, imploring the Spirit to fill them with light and life. Spirit of God, make us ready to receive your visit. Make faith in the word which saves grow in us. Be the living source of the hope which blossoms in our lives. Be in us the breath of love which transforms us, and the fire of charity which impels us to give ourselves to the service of our brothers and sisters. You whom the Father has sent, teach us all things and make us grasp the richness of the word of Christ. Strengthen our inner being, make us pass from fear to confidence, so that the praise of your glory may burst forth from us. Be the light that fills people’s hearts and gives them the courage to seek you unceasingly. You, Spirit of truth, lead us to the entire Truth, so that we may firmly proclaim...

COLLECT O God, by whose untold mercy blessed Ceslaus preached the good news of the unfathomable riches of Christ, grant that through his intercession we may grow in knowledge of you and, bearing fruit in every good work, faithfully walk in your presence, in accord with the truth of the Gospel. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. FIRST READING Is 61, 1-3a A reading from the book of the Prophet Isaiah. The spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed me; he has sent me to bring good news to the oppressed, to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and release to the prisoners; to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all who mourn. To place on those who mourn in Zion a diadem instead of ashes, to give them oil of gladness instead of mourning, a glorious mantle instead of a faint spirit. The Word of the Lord. RESPONSORIAL PSALM Ps 89(88), 2-3. 4-5. 21-22. 25 i 27 R. Forever I will sing the goodness of the Lord. The favors of the LORD I will sing forever; through all generations my mouth shall proclaim your faithfulness. For you...

GOSPEL Matthew 4: 12-17.23-25 Hearing that John had been arrested he withdrew to Galilee, and leaving Nazareth he went and settled in Capernaum, beside the lake, on the borders of Zebulun and Naphtali. This was to fulfil what was spoken by the prophet Isaiah: Land of Zebulun! Land of Naphtali! Way of the sea beyond Jordan. Galilee of the nations! The people that lived in darkness have seen a great light; on those who lived in a country of shadow dark as death a light has dawned. From then onwards Jesus began his proclamation with the message, ‘Repent, for the kingdom of Heaven is close at hand.’ He went round the whole of Galilee teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom and curing all kinds of disease and illness among the people. His fame spread throughout Syria, and those who were suffering from diseases and painful complaints of one kind or another, the possessed, epileptics, the paralyzed, were all brought to him, and he cured them. Large crowds followed him, coming from Galilee, the Decapolis, Jerusalem, Judaea and Transjordan. The Word of the Lord. PRAYERS OF THE FAITHFUL V. With all our faith let us call on God who is the beginning and the end of all roads. R. Lord, hear our prayer V. Holy Father, you are the light and guide of Your people...

PATRON OF DAY: Blessed Czeslaw Odrowąż

Grace of a meeting The Feast of Blessed Ceslaus (Polish: Czesław), the Patron Saint of the City, and the Archdiocese of Wrocław PATRON OF DAY: Blessed Czeslaw Odrowąż Ceslaus (Polish: Czesław) Odrowąż was born around 1180 in Kamień Śląski – to the same family from which came St. Hyacinth (Polish: Jacek). Both of them received the dominican habit from the hands of the Holy Father Dominic, the founder of the Order of Preachers, in Rome. On the way to Poland Ceslaus founded a convent in Prague, and in the year 1226 – another one at St. Adalbert’s Church in Wrocław. Tradition ascribes to him saving Wrocław from destruction during the Tartar siege in 1241. Bl. Ceslaus prayed for the salvation of the city, climbing the shafts and encouraging defenders to resist. One of the contemporary Polish historians described the miracle of a luminous sphere that appeared in the sky and which driven the Tartar army out, that was achieved through the prayers of Bl. Ceslaus. He died on 15th July 1242, and its liturgical feast falls on 20th July. In 1713, Pope Clement XI approved his cult for the Dominican Order and the Archdiocese of Wrocław. In 1753, Clement XIII extended it to all the Polish dioceses. Re-development of worship took place in the mid-twentieth century, when after the 140-year break, the Dominicans returned to the capital of Lower...
