The Feast of St Junipero Serra.

"God put Abraham to the test.
He called to him, “Abraham!” “Here I am,” he replied.
Then God said: “Take your son Isaac, your only one, whom you love, and go to the land of Moriah.
There you shall offer him up as a burnt offering on a height that I will point out to you.” (Genesis 22: 1 - 22).

Thursday 1st July in the 13th Week in Ordinary Time is the feast of the Franciscan, St Junipero Serra. (1713 - 1784). This Spanish Franciscan priest evangelized Mexico and California and firmly established the Church in these regions.

July is the month we honor the Most Precious Blood of Our Lord Jesus Christ.

In our key Scripture for today, God surprised Abraham with a difficult test: I want you to sacrifice your son, your only son for me.
We know that nothing in this world happens without the express permission of God. God's merciful and powerful Providence governs all things. God directly or indirectly sends us tests.

What may God be asking you to offer up today? Health, a family member, job, money, home? Everything in the Scriptures is written for our instruction teaches St Paul. Consider the people whom God put to the test:
Isaiah: Wife.
Hosea: Gomer, the prostitute.
St John Paul II: Health.
St Josemaria: Health.
Joe Biden: Wife and children perished in accident, a son by health issue. 

Abraham passed his test.
“I swear by my very self—oracle of the Lord—that because you acted as you did in not withholding from me your son, your only one, I will bless you and make your descendants as countless as the stars of the sky and the sands of the seashore; your descendants will take possession of the gates of their enemies, and in your descendants all the nations of the earth will find blessing, because you obeyed my command.”
(Genesis 22: 16 - 18).

There is great reward in submitting our will to the gracious and mysterious will of God.

We honor the Most Precious Blood of our Savior Jesus Christ in July.
"The Blood of my Son brings purity and healing and new life wherever it flows. Implore the power of the precious Blood over yourself and over all priests. Whenever you are asked to intercede for souls, invoke the power of the precious Blood over them, and present them to the Father covered with the Blood of the Lamb." (Mary, IN SINU JESU).

Daily Bible Verse @


  1. Why is Joe Biden in the Daily bible verse and being compared to the Saints. when he is against abortion. He is not in the Holy Bible????????

  2. Bizzare juxta positioning of 3 noted modern saints of the Church with an pro abortion al a carte catholic political figure. Is your point that sometime the test is failed? Why didn't you choose Joseph Stalin he had a hard life

  3. Bizzare juxtapositioning of 3 saints of the Catholic church with a pro abortion supporting politician... is your point that sometime we do not learn or het the message?

  4. Shame on you for insinuating that a pedophile like Joe Biden has paid a price similar to the saints. Holy men and women need to unite against evil men. Do not falsely praise them even though they commit evil in broad daylight.

  5. Regardless of politics, I don’t think any pro-abortion living person should be held up next to actual saints.

  6. I heartily agree with the above comments.
    Very distressing to read Bidens name along with the others!
