"May the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, give you a spirit of wisdom and perception of what is revealed, to bring you to full knowledge of him." Eph 15: 17
Reading of the Day

"As he walked by the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon, who is called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the lake for they were fishermen. And he said to them, ‘Follow me, and I will make you fish for people.’ Immediately they left their nets and followed him. As he went from there, he saw two other brothers, James son of Zebedee and his brother John, in the boat with their father Zebedee, mending their nets, and he called them. Immediately they left the boat and their father, and followed him. Jesus went throughout Galilee, teaching in their synagogues and proclaiming the good news of the kingdom and curing every disease and every sickness among the people. So his fame spread throughout all Syria, and they brought to him all the sick, those who were afflicted with various diseases and pains, demoniacs, epileptics, and paralytics, and he cured them. And great crowds followed him from Galilee, the Decapolis, Jerusalem, Judea, and from beyond the Jordan." Mt 4: 18-25

Confessor

St Nimatullah Youssef Kassab Al-Hardini (1808-1858) Youssef Kassab Al-Hardini was born in 1808 in Hardin, Lebanon.

Four of his brothers became priests or monks, and  Youssef himself entered the Lebanese Maronite Order in 1828. The young  man began religious life at the monastery of St Anthony in Qozhaya, near  the Qadisha (Holy Valley), where he remained for two years until he  began his novitiate and was given the name "Nimatullah". During the  novitiate, he deepened his life of personal and community prayer and  dedicated time to manual labour, while also learning to bind books.
