Tuesday of week 5 in Ordinary Time 
 or Saint Teilo, Bishop 

The Lord is a great king: come, let us adore him.

Year: C(II). Psalm week: 1. Liturgical Colour: Green.

St Teilo
Teilo lived in the sixth century, studying under St Paulinus at Llanddeusant and, as a monk, with St David at Mynyw. He founded his own monastery at Llandeilo Fawr where he probably died. A later tradition has St Teilo, accompanied by St David and St Padarn, make a pilgrimage to Jerusalem. He spent some years in Brittany. At Llandaff he is venerated as founder of the see. See also the articles in Wikipedia and the Catholic Encyclopaedia.

Liturgical colour: green
Green is the colour of living and growing things, which directly or indirectly are the source of our own physical life, since without them we would not be able to live. Liturgically, it is the colour of Ordinary Time, when we celebrate the wonder and joy of the life we have been given without specially being penitent (in violet) or exultant (in white).

Mid-morning reading (Terce)Jeremiah 17:7-8 ©
A blessing on the man who puts his trust in the Lord, with the Lord for his hope. He is like a tree by the waterside that thrusts its roots to the stream: when the heat comes it feels no alarm, its foliage stays green; it has no worries in a year of drought, and never ceases to bear fruit.

Noon reading (Sext)Proverbs 3:13-15 ©
Happy the man who discovers wisdom, the man who gains discernment: gaining her is more rewarding than silver, more profitable than gold. She is beyond the price of pearls, nothing you could covet is her equal.

Afternoon reading (None)Job 5:17-18 ©
Happy indeed the man whom God corrects! So do not refuse this lesson from the Omnipotent: for he who wounds is he who soothes the sore, and the hand that hurts is the hand that heals.
