Worth The Fight
Kim Walker-Smith

Today’s verse…

Seek good and not evil
so that you may live,

and the Lord will be with you.
Amos 5:14

Today’s readings…

Friday after Ash Wednesday
Lectionary: 221



Reading I Isaiah 58:1-9a

Thus says the Lord GOD:
Cry out full-throated and unsparingly,
 lift up your voice like a trumpet blast;
Tell my people their wickedness,
 and the house of Jacob their sins.
They seek me day after day,
 and desire to know my ways,
Like a nation that has done what is just
 and not abandoned the law of their God;
They ask me to declare what is due them,
 pleased to gain access to God.
“Why do we fast, and you do not see it?
 afflict ourselves, and you take no note of it?”

Lo, on your fast day you carry out your own pursuits,
 and drive all your laborers.
Yes, your fast ends in quarreling and fighting,
 striking with wicked claw.
Would that today you might fast
 so as to make your voice heard on high!
Is this the manner of fasting I wish,
 of keeping a day of penance:
That a man bow his head like a reed
 and lie in sackcloth and ashes?
Do you call this a fast,
 a day acceptable to the LORD?
This, rather, is the fasting that I wish:
 releasing those bound unjustly,
 untying the thongs of the yoke;
Setting free the oppressed
 breaking every yoke;
Sharing your bread with the hungry,
 sheltering the oppressed and the homeless;
Clothing the naked when you see them,
 and not turning your back on your own.
Then your light shall break forth like the dawn,
 and your wound shall quickly be healed;
Your vindication shall go before you,
 and the glory of the LORD shall be your rear guard.
Then you shall call, and the LORD will answer,
 you shall cry for help, and he will say: Here I am!

Responsorial Psalm
51:3-4, 5-6ab, 18-19

R. (19b) A heart contrite and humbled, O God, you will not spurn.

Have mercy on me, O God, in your goodness;
 in the greatness of your compassion wipe out my offense.
Thoroughly wash me from my guilt
 and of my sin cleanse me.
R. A heart contrite and humbled, O God, you will not spurn.

For I acknowledge my offense,
 and my sin is before me always:
“Against you only have I sinned,
 and done what is evil in your sight.”
R. A heart contrite and humbled, O God, you will not spurn.

For you are not pleased with sacrifices;
 should I offer a burnt offering, you would not accept it.
My sacrifice, O God, is a contrite spirit;
 a heart contrite and humbled, O God, you will not spurn.
R. A heart contrite and humbled, O God, you will not spurn.

Gospel Matthew 9:14-15

The disciples of John approached Jesus and said,
“Why do we and the Pharisees fast much,
but your disciples do not fast?”
Jesus answered them, “Can the wedding guests mourn
as long as the bridegroom is with them?
The days will come when the bridegroom is taken away from them,
and then they will fast.”


Formed: Offering Our Love

Today’s readings bring together almsgiving, prayer, and fasting. In Isaiah, the Israelites are reminded to give selflessly. Then, Psalm 51 presents us with a model of penitential prayer. Finally, in the Gospel, Christ reminds us of the deeper meaning of fasting. As we immerse ourselves into these practices, let us always remember that they are expressions of love!

Today’s Action Item: Reflect on your Lenten almsgiving, prayer, and fasting.

Daily Catholic Wisdom…

Look at Jesus. Each laceration is a reproach; each lash of the whip, a reason for sorrow for your offences and mine.
St. Josemaría Escrivá, 
The Way of the Cross

My prayer…

Dear God, my Abba Father, Lord Jesus my Savior, Holy Spirit within me.
You know me, You hear my every thought. Why is it that I have always resisted so many things the Church says we should do. But instead seek the Words of Jesus. To surround myself with Him. To reflect His presence more than anything.
Do I let the hypocrites become my excuse and in turn make me the he hypocrite.
I know I have for to long treated You… as understanding and loving. Kind and slow to anger. Fearful of Your wrath, but at the same time feeling that isn’t what You want for us. Oh so much I don’t understand. So much I want to. But then in Your presence all these thoughts fade away into the moment with You and what You maybe revealing and teaching me. Help me see and understand. Let me know Your direction for me and mine. Give me the strength and courage to follow that direction.
Thank You for hearing me, my prayers, my cries. For blessing and protecting each of mine and theirs. Despite my sinful past, You have blessed me beyond measure. I know this and now seek to share this and spread the truth of Your Word. Starting with these daily post. Let them touch those in need. Like me.
Not my will, but Yours Lord God.
Jesus, Mary, I love You, save souls.
In Jesus name I pray.
Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Ghost; as it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

Apostles (Nicene) Creed

I believe in one God, the Father almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all things visible and invisible.
I believe in one Lord Jesus Christ, the Only Begotten Son of God, born of the Father before all ages. God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, consubstantial with the Father; through him all things were made. For us men and for our salvation he came down from heaven,
and by the Holy Spirit was incarnate of the Virgin Mary, and became man.
For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate, he suffered death and was buried, and rose again on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures. He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead and his kingdom will have no end.
I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son, who with the Father and the Son is adored and glorified, who has spoken through the prophets.
I believe in one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church. I confess one Baptism for the forgiveness of sins and I look forward to the resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come.

Lords Prayer

Our Father, Who art in Heaven, hallowed be Thy name; Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.

Hail Mary

Hail Mary full of Grace, the Lord is with thee. Blessed are thou among women and blessed is the fruit of thy womb Jesus.
Holy Mary Mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death.

Glory be to the Father

Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning is now, and ever shall be, world without end.

O my Jesus

O my Jesus, have mercy on us. Forgive us our sins. Save us from the fires of hell. Take all souls into heaven, especially, those most in need of thy mercy.

Salve Regina (Hail Holy Queen)

Hail, holy Queen, Mother of mercy, hail, our life, our sweetness and our hope. To thee do we cry, poor banished children of Eve: to thee do we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in this vale of tears. Turn then, most gracious Advocate, thine eyes of mercy toward us, and after this our exile, show unto us the blessed fruit of thy womb, Jesus, O merciful, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary!

Anima Christi

Soul of Christ, make me holy. Body of Christ, save me. Blood of Christ, fill me with love. Water from Christ’s side, wash me. Passion of Christ, strengthen me. Good Jesus, hear me. Within your wounds, hide me. Never let me be parted from you. From the evil enemy, protect me. At the hour of my death, call me. And tell me to come to you. That with your saints I may praise you. Through all eternity.


V. The Angel of the Lord declared unto Mary.
R. And she conceived of the Holy Spirit.
Hail Mary, full of grace,
The Lord is with Thee;
Blessed art thou among women,
And blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God,
Pray for us sinners,
Now and at the hour of our death. Amen
V. Behold the handmaid of the Lord.
R. Be it done unto me according to thy word.
Hail Mary,…
V. And the Word was made Flesh.
R. And dwelt among us.
Hail Mary,…
V. Pray for us, O holy Mother of God.
R. That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
Pour forth, we beseech Thee, O Lord, Thy grace into our hearts, that we to whom the Incarnation of Christ Thy Son was made known by the message of an angel, may by His Passion and Cross be brought to the glory of His Resurrection. Through the same Christ Our Lord.
