Today is a 3rd Class feast day for St. Jane Frances de Chantal in the 1962 Calendar.

http://www.newadvent.org/cathen/08282c.htm

http://arsorandi.blogspot.com/2009/0...s-fremiot.html

It's the memorial of Pope St. Pius X in the Novus Ordo calendar.

http://www.catholicculture.org/cultu...ate=2012-08-21

Between the two, I'm sure you will find some thing to read.

Or you could always read the go-to John 6, and pray a Rosary for penance and adoration of Our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament, as so many have wounded the Sacred Heart of Jesus through indifference, mistreatment, or outright disbelief.

Thank you for inspiring me to look up things I need to read again and again and again..

No, thank you. I will look them up and read. I read the bible, but I know of other people in other denominations that have books pacifically with bible readings for each day. Thankyou

http://usccb.org/ < save this link. Not only the readings for every day, but audios in English and reflections and homilies on the readings by priests and scholars!

EVERY DAY! From the US Catholic Bishops' official site.

They are from the New American Bible St. Joseph Edition! Approved with a Nihil Obstat and Church Imprimatur! :-)

Today's readings too of course:


August 21, 2012

August 20 | August 22
Memorial of Saint Pius X, Pope
Lectionary: 420
Reading 1 Ez 28:1-10

The word of the LORD came to me: Son of man,
say to the prince of Tyre:
Thus says the Lord GOD:

Because you are haughty of heart,
you say, "A god am I!
I occupy a godly throne
in the heart of the sea!"--
And yet you are a man, and not a god,
however you may think yourself like a god.
Oh yes, you are wiser than Daniel,
there is no secret that is beyond you.
By your wisdom and your intelligence
you have made riches for yourself;
You have put gold and silver
into your treasuries.
By your great wisdom applied to your trading
you have heaped up your riches;
your heart has grown haughty from your riches?
therefore thus says the Lord GOD:
Because you have thought yourself
to have the mind of a god,
Therefore I will bring against you
foreigners, the most barbarous of nations.
They shall draw their swords
against your beauteous wisdom,
they shall run them through your splendid apparel.
They shall thrust you down to the pit, there to die
a bloodied corpse, in the heart of the sea.
Will you then say, "I am a god!"
when you face your murderers?
No, you are man, not a god,
handed over to those who will slay you.
You shall die the death of the uncircumcised
at the hands of foreigners,
for I have spoken, says the Lord GOD.
Responsorial Psalm Dt 32:26-27ab, 27cd-28, 30, 35cd-36ab

R. (39c) It is I who deal death and give life.
"I would have said, 'I will make an end of them
and blot out their name from men's memories,'
Had I not feared the insolence of their enemies,
feared that these foes would mistakenly boast."
R. It is I who deal death and give life.
"'Our own hand won the victory;
the LORD had nothing to do with it.'"
For they are a people devoid of reason,
having no understanding.
R. It is I who deal death and give life.
"How could one man rout a thousand,
or two men put ten thousand to flight,
Unless it was because their Rock sold them
and the LORD delivered them up?"
R. It is I who deal death and give life.
Close at hand is the day of their disaster,
and their doom is rushing upon them!
Surely, the LORD shall do justice for his people;
on his servants he shall have pity.
R. It is I who deal death and give life.

Gospel Mt 19:23-30

Jesus said to his disciples:
"Amen, I say to you, it will be hard for one who is rich
to enter the Kingdom of heaven.
Again I say to you,
it is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle
than for one who is rich to enter the Kingdom of God."
When the disciples heard this, they were greatly astonished and said,
"Who then can be saved?"
Jesus looked at them and said,
"For men this is impossible,
but for God all things are possible."
Then Peter said to him in reply,
"We have given up everything and followed you.
What will there be for us?"
Jesus said to them, "Amen, I say to you
that you who have followed me, in the new age,
when the Son of Man is seated on his throne of glory,
will yourselves sit on twelve thrones,
judging the twelve tribes of Israel.
And everyone who has given up houses or brothers or sisters
or father or mother or children or lands
for the sake of my name will receive a hundred times more,
and will inherit eternal life.
But many who are first will be last, and the last will be first."

www.universalis.com

This site will give you the Lectionary readings for the day (what will be read at mass: 1 Old or New testament reading, a Psalm and a Gospel reading). This is on the Mass tab.
It will also give you the "Office of Readings" which is part of the Divine Office. This includes one bible reading and one reading from the Fathers of the church (or other Saint) plus a number of psalms and canticles.

Morning and evening prayer also includes short old & new testament Readings for each day.


Hope these help.

You can also subscribe to DailyGospel.org and it will email you the readings for the day, a link to info about the Saint of the Day as well as a reading from a great saint, church father, pope, etc.

I start my workday with it. It's great!
