Tuesday of the Fourth week in Ordinary Time

2nd book of Samuel 18:9-10.14b.24-25a.30-33.19:1-3.

Absalom unexpectedly came up against David's servants. He was mounted on a mule, and, as the mule passed under the branches of a large terebinth, his hair caught fast in the tree. He hung between heaven and earth while the mule he had been riding ran off.
Someone saw this and reported to Joab that he had seen Absalom hanging from a terebinth.
Joab replied, "I will not waste time with you in this way." And taking three pikes in hand, he thrust for the heart of Absalom, still hanging from the tree alive.
Now David was sitting between the two gates, and a lookout mounted to the roof of the gate above the city wall, where he looked about and saw a man running all alone.
The lookout shouted to inform the king, who said, "If he is alone, he has good news to report." As he kept coming nearer,
The king said, "Step aside and remain in attendance here." So he stepped aside and remained there.
When the Cushite came in, he said, "Let my lord the king receive the good news that this day the LORD has taken your part, freeing you from the grasp of all who rebelled against you."
But the king asked the Cushite, "Is young Absalom safe?" The Cushite replied, "May the enemies of my lord the king and all who rebel against you with evil intent be as that young man!"
The king was shaken, and went up to the room over the city gate to weep. He said as he wept, "My son Absalom! My son, my son Absalom! If only I had died instead of you, Absalom, my son, my son!"
Joab was told that the king was weeping and mourning for Absalom;
and that day's victory was turned into mourning for the whole army when they heard that the king was grieving for his son.

Psalms 86(85):1-2.3-4.5-6.
A prayer of David. Hear me, LORD, and answer me, for I am poor and oppressed.
Preserve my life, for I am loyal; save your servant who trusts in you.
You are my God; pity me, Lord; to you I call all the day.
Gladden the soul of your servant; to you, Lord, I lift up my soul.

Lord, you are kind and forgiving, most loving to all who call on you.
LORD, hear my prayer; listen to my cry for help.

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Mark 5:21-43.
When Jesus had crossed again in the boat to the other side, a large crowd gathered around him, and he stayed close to the sea.
One of the synagogue officials, named Jairus, came forward. Seeing him he fell at his feet
and pleaded earnestly with him, saying, "My daughter is at the point of death. Please, come lay your hands on her that she may get well and live."
He went off with him, and a large crowd followed him and pressed upon him.
There was a woman afflicted with hemorrhages for twelve years.
She had suffered greatly at the hands of many doctors and had spent all that she had. Yet she was not helped but only grew worse.
She had heard about Jesus and came up behind him in the crowd and touched his cloak.
She said, "If I but touch his clothes, I shall be cured."
Immediately her flow of blood dried up. She felt in her body that she was healed of her affliction.
Jesus, aware at once that power had gone out from him, turned around in the crowd and asked, "Who has touched my clothes?"
But his disciples said to him, "You see how the crowd is pressing upon you, and yet you ask, 'Who touched me?'"
And he looked around to see who had done it.
The woman, realizing what had happened to her, approached in fear and trembling. She fell down before Jesus and told him the whole truth.
He said to her, "Daughter, your faith has saved you. Go in peace and be cured of your affliction."
While he was still speaking, people from the synagogue official's house arrived and said, "Your daughter has died; why trouble the teacher any longer?"
Disregarding the message that was reported, Jesus said to the synagogue official, "Do not be afraid; just have faith."
He did not allow anyone to accompany him inside except Peter, James, and John, the brother of James.
When they arrived at the house of the synagogue official, he caught sight of a commotion, people weeping and wailing loudly.
So he went in and said to them, "Why this commotion and weeping? The child is not dead but asleep."
And they ridiculed him. Then he put them all out. He took along the child's father and mother and those who were with him and entered the room where the child was.
He took the child by the hand and said to her, "Talitha koum," which means, "Little girl, I say to you, arise!"
The girl, a child of twelve, arose immediately and walked around. (At that) they were utterly astounded.
He gave strict orders that no one should know this and said that she should be given something to eat.

31 de enero San Juan Bosco, Fundador de los Salesianos

En 1815 nació en Piamonte (Italia). A los dieciséis años, ingresó en el seminario de Chieri y era tan pobre, que debía mendigar para reunir el dinero y los vestidos indispensables. Después de haber recibido el diaconado, Juan Bosco pasó al seminario mayor de Turín y ahí empezó, con la aprobación de sus superiores, a reunir todos los domingos a un grupo de chiquillos abandonados de la ciudad en una especie de escuela y lugar de recreo al que llamó "Oratorio Festivo".

El primer puesto que ocupó Don Bosco fue el de capellán auxiliar en una casa de refugio para muchachas, que había fundado la marquesa di Barola.

Tiempo después, acabó una escuela nocturna, y como el oratorio estaba lleno, abrió otros dos centros en otros tantos barrios de Turín. Por la misma época, empezó a dar alojamiento a los niños abandonados. Al poco tiempo, había ya cuarenta chicos, la mayoría aprendices, que vivían con Don Bosco y su madre en el barrio de Valdocco. Cayó pronto en la cuenta que todo el bien que hacía por sus chicos, se perdía con las malas influencias del exterior, y decidió construir sus propios talleres de aprendizaje. Los dos primeros fueron inaugurados en 1853. En 1856, había ya 150 internos, cuatro talleres, una imprenta, cuatro clases de latín y diez sacerdotes. Los externos eran 500. En diciembre de 1859, Don Bosco y sus 22 compañeros decidieron finalmente organizar la congregación, cuyas reglas habían sido aprobadas por Pío IX. Pero la aprobación definitiva no llegó sino hasta 15 años después. La orden creció rápidamente: en 1863 habían 39 salesianos, a la muerte del fundador eran ya 768. El siguiente paso de Don Bosco fue la fundación de una congregación femenina. La congregación quedó inaugurada en 1872, con la toma del hábito de 27 jóvenes a las que el santo llamó Hijas de Nuestra Señora, Auxilio de los Cristianos.

Don Bosco realizó uno de sus sueños al enviar sus primeros misioneros a la Patagonia. Poco a poco los salesianos se extendieron por toda América del Sur. Tenían 36 casas en el Nuevo Mundo y 38 en Europa.

Las instituciones salesianas en la actualidad comprenden escuelas primaria y segunda enseñanza, seminarios, escuelas para adultos, escuelas técnicas y de agricultura, talleres de imprenta y librería, hospitales, etc. sin omitir las misiones y el trabajo pastoral.

Don Bosco murió el 31 de enero de 1888. Su canonización tuvo lugar en 1934.

On Jan. 31, the Roman Catholic Church honors St. John Bosco (or “Don Bosco”), a 19th century Italian priest who reached out to young people to remedy their lack of education, opportunities, and faith.
John Bosco was born in August of 1815 into a family of peasant farmers in Castelnuovo d'Asti – a place which would one day be renamed in the saint's honor as “Castelnuovo Don Bosco.”
John's father died when he was two years old, but he drew strength from his mother Margherita's deep faith in God.
Margherita also taught her son the importance of charity, using portions of her own modest means to support those in even greater need. John desired to pass on to his own young friends the example of Christian discipleship that he learned from his mother.
At age nine, he had a prophetic dream in which a number of unruly young boys were uttering words of blasphemy. Jesus Christ and the Virgin Mary appeared to John in the dream, saying he would bring such youths to God through the virtues of humility and charity.
Later on, this dream would help John to discern his calling as a priest. But he also sought to follow the advice of Jesus and Mary while still a boy: he would entertain his peers with juggling, acrobatics, and magic tricks, before explaining a sermon he had heard, or leading them in praying the Rosary.
John's older brother Anthony opposed his plan to be a priest, and antagonized him so much that he left home to become a farm worker at age 12. After moving back home three years later, John worked in various trades and finished school in order to attend seminary.
In 1841, John Bosco was ordained a priest. From that time, John was known as “Don” Bosco, a traditional Italian title of honor for priests. In the city of Turin, he began ministering to boys and young men who lived on the streets, many of whom were without work or education.
The industrial revolution had drawn large numbers of people into the city to look for work that was frequently grueling and sometimes scarce. Don Bosco was shocked to see how many boys ended up in prison before the age of 18, left to starve spiritually and sometimes physically.
The priest was determined to save as many young people as he could from a life of degradation. He established a group known as the Oratory of St. Francis de Sales, and became a kindly spiritual father to boys in need. His aging mother helped support the project in its early years.
John's boyhood dream came to pass: he became a spiritual guide and provider along with his fellow Salesian priests and brothers, giving boys religious instruction, lodging, education, and work opportunities. He also helped Saint Mary Dominic Mazzarello form a similar group for girls.
This success did not come easily, as the priest struggled to find reliable accommodations and support for his ambitious apostolate. Italy's nationalist movement made life difficult for religious orders, and its anti-clerical attitudes even led to assassination attempts against Don Bosco.
But such hostility did not stop the Salesians from expanding in Europe and beyond. They were helping 130,000 children in 250 houses by the end of Don Bosco's life. “I have done nothing by myself,” he stated, saying it was “Our Lady who has done everything” through her intercession with God.
St. John Bosco died in the early hours of Jan. 31, 1888, after conveying a message: “Tell the boys that I shall be waiting for them all in Paradise.” He was canonized on Easter Sunday of 1934, and is a patron saint of young people, apprentices, and Catholic publishers and editors.
