Dear friends, We hope that the season has gotten off to a blessed start! We Apostles are in the process of rebranding these daily meditations/podcasts in the hopes that they may become an apostolate that involves the whole community, including our non-English speakers. Thus we would like to move forward with the podcast in the Italian language only. Thank you for “following” us this far, and thank you for your patience: at times it probably wasn’t the easiest to understand what we were trying to say. God Bless you, and know that we hold you close in our hearts and prayers!Love,The Apostles of the Interior Life

Herod said, "John I beheaded; but who is this about whom I hear such things?" And he tried to see him.The Gospel of the Lord.

- Press the PLAY button to listen to the catechesis of the day and share if you like -+ A reading from the Book of Proverbs +Like a stream is the king's heart in the hand of the Lord;           wherever it pleases him, he directs it.   All the ways of a man may be right in his own eyes,           but it is the Lord who proves hearts.   To do what is right and just           is more acceptable to the Lord than sacrifice.   Haughty eyes and a proud heart–           the tillage of the wicked is sin.   The plans of the diligent are sure of profit,           but all rash haste leads certainly to poverty.   Whoever makes a fortune by a lying tongue           is chasing a bubble over deadly snares.   The soul of the wicked man desires evil;           his neighbor finds no pity in his eyes.   When the arrogant man is punished, the simple are the wiser;           when the wise man is instructed, he gains knowledge.   The just man appraises the house of the wicked:           there is one who brings down the wicked to ruin.   He who shuts his ear to the cry of the poor           will himself also call and not be heard.The Gospel of the Lord.

In the same way, there is nothing hidden that shall not be uncovered; nothing kept secret that shall not be known clearly. Now, take care how well you listen, for whoever produces will be given more, but from those who do not produce, even what they seem to have will be taken away from them."The Gospel of the Lord.
- Press the PLAY button to listen to the catechesis of the day and share if you like -+ A reading from the holy Gospel, according to Luke +When a great crowd gathered and people from town after town came to him, he said in a parable: ‘A sower went out to sow his seed; and as he sowed, some fell on the path and was trampled on, and the birds of the air ate it up. Some fell on the rock; and as it grew up, it withered for lack of moisture. Some fell among thorns, and the thorns grew with it and choked it. Some fell into good soil, and when it grew, it produced a hundredfold.’ As he said this, he called out, ‘Let anyone with ears to hear listen!’Then his disciples asked him what this parable meant. He said, ‘To you it has been given to know the secrets of the kingdom of God; but to others I speak in parables, so that“looking they may not perceive,and listening they may not understand.”‘Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God. The ones on the path are those who have heard; then the devil comes and takes away the word from their hearts, so that they may not believe and be saved. The ones on the rock are those who, when they hear the word, receive it with joy. But these have no root; they believe only for a while and in a time of testing fall away. As for what fell among the thorns, these are the ones who hear; but as they go on their way, they are choked by the cares and riches and pleasures of life, and their fruit does not mature. But as for that in the good soil, these are the ones who, when they hear the word, hold it fast in an honest and good heart, and bear fruit with patient endurance.The Gospel of the Lord.

As he reached the gate of the town, a dead man was being carried out. He was the only son of his mother and she was a widow; there followed a large crowd of townspeople.On seeing her, the Lord had pity on her and said, "Don't cry." Then he came up and touched the stretcher and the men who carried it stopped. Jesus then said, "Young man, awake, I tell you." And the dead man got up and began to speak, and Jesus gave him to his mother. A holy fear came over them all and they praised God saying, "A great prophet has appeared among us; God has visited his people." This news spread out in the Jewish country and the surrounding places.The Gospel of the Lord.

So when he heard about Jesus, he sent some elders of the Jews to persuade him to come and save his servant's life. The elders came to Jesus and begged him earnestly, saying, "He deserves this of you, for he loves our people and even built a synagogue for us."Jesus went with them. He was not far from the house when the captain sent friends to give this message, "Sir, do not trouble yourself for I am not worthy to welcome you under my roof. You see I didn't approach you myself. Just give the order and my servant will be healed. For I myself, a junior officer, give orders to my soldiers and I say to this one: 'Go,' and he goes; and to the other: 'Come,' and he comes; and to my servant: 'Do this,' and he does it."On hearing these words, Jesus was filled with admiration. He turned and said to the people with him, "I say to you, not even in Israel have I found such great faith." The people sent by the captain went back to his house; there they found that the servant was well.The Gospel of the Lord.

Remove the wooden beam from your eye first;then you will see clearlyto remove the splinter in your brother’s eye.”The Gospel of the Lord.

When his mother Mary had been engaged to Joseph, but before they lived together, she was found to be with child from the Holy Spirit. Her husband Joseph, being a righteous man and unwilling to expose her to public disgrace, planned to dismiss her quietly. But just when he had resolved to do this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, "Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary as your wife, for the child conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. She will bear a son, and you are to name him Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins." All this took place to fulfil what had been spoken by the Lord through the prophet: "Look, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and they shall name him Emmanuel," which means, "God is with us."The Gospel of the Lord.

Rejoice in that day and leap for joy, for a great reward is kept for you in heaven. Remember that is how the ancestors of this people treated the prophets.But alas for you who have wealth, for you have been comforted now.Alas for you who are full, for you will go hungry.Alas for you who laugh now, for you will mourn and weep.Alas for you when people speak well of you, for that is how the ancestors of these people treated the false prophets."The Gospel of the Lord.
