When he died in 397, Martin was the first non-martyr to receive the ranking of a saint. The first reading from Isaiah fits the feast: Martin of Tours was anointed by the Spirit of the Lord to bring glad tidings to the lowly, to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to captives and release to prisoners .

Reflection for the 25th Week in Ordinary Time, Part 1 THE CATHOLIC SCHOLAR - September 18, 2016 Monday – Shine "Let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your heavenly Father." Today's Gospel acclamation reminds us that we are called to shine in this often dark, dreary world. We are called to shine God's light into every place we go and upon every person we meet.

We need to get rid of anything ...http://thecatholicscholar.blogspot.com/2016/09/reflection-for-25th-week-in-ordinary.html

Because of the weekend project, I wanted to get as early a start as possible on Sunday morning, so I decided to go to my parish's first Sunday morning Mass, at 7:00 A.M.
