Blessed Jean-Joseph Lataste, O. P.
More detailsThe Pope has authorized the beatification of a French Dominican nineteenth century, Jean-Joseph LATASTE (1832-1869). This priest had founded in 1866 the Order of the Dominican Sisters of Bethany, which aims to welcome women to their release and allow them to become religious, with no distinction between them and other sisters. (Zenit 2011)

Lectio

On a certain sabbath Jesus went into the synagogue and taught, and there was a man there whose right hand was withered. The scribes and the Pharisees watched him closely to see if he would cure on the Sabbath so that they might discover a reason to accuse him. But he realized their intentions and said to the man with the withered hand, “Come up and stand before us.” And he rose and stood there. Then Jesus said to them, “I ask you, is it lawful to do good on the sabbath rather than to do evil, to save life rather than to destroy it?” Looking around at them all, he then said to him, “Stretch out your hand.” He did so and his hand was restored. But they became enraged and discussed together what they might do to Jesus. (Lk 6:6-11)

 

Contemplatio: 

Your withered hand does not define you.  You are God’s precious child.
