Blessed Eugénie Joubert

Eugénie Joubert was born and baptised in Yssingeaux, not far from Notre-Dame du Puy, on 11 February 1876.

She entered religious life at the age of 19. She took her religious vows on 8 September 1897. Obedience entrusted her with children; her favourites were the poorest.

She died in Liège (Belgium) at the age of 28, with a reputation for holiness, on 2 July 1904. Pope John Paul II proclaimed her blessed on 20 November 1994.

By her life entirely devoted to God,

First reading

“Love is strong as death”

From the Canticle of Canticles (Cant. of Cant. 8, 6-7)

Word from our Beloved:

Set me as a seal upon your heart,

as a seal upon your arm,

for love is strong as death,

jealousy is fierce as the grave.

Its flashes are flashes of fire,

the very flame of the Lord.


Many waters cannot quench love,

neither can floods drown it.

If a man offered for love all the wealth of his house,

he would be utterly despised.

Word of the lord

Psalm 45  11 – 15

R. : You are the joy,

you are the honour of our people,

Blessed Eugénie

 

Hear, O daughter, and consider, and incline your ear:

forget your people and your father’s house,

and the king will desire your beauty.

Since he is your lord, bow to him.

The people of Tyre will seek your favour with gifts,

the richest of the people.

All glorious is the princess in her chamber, with robes interwoven with gold.

In many-coloured robes she is led to the king,

with her virgin companions following behind her.

With joy and gladness they are led along

as they enter the palace of the king.

Gospel

Acclamation cf. Mt 11:25

Hallelujah, hallelujah.

Blessed are you, God our Father,

Lord of the Universe,

you who reveal to little ones

the mysteries of the Kingdom!

Hallelujah

From the Gospel according to Saint Matthew  18, 1-4

At that time the disciples came to Jesus, saying,

“Who is the greatest

in the kingdom of heaven?”

And calling to him a child,

he put him in the midst of them

and said,

“Truly, I say to you,

unless you turn and become like children,

you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.

Whoever humbles himself like this child

is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.

Let us acclaim the word of God
