Memorial of Saint Cornelius, pope and martyr, and Saint Cyprian, bishop and martyr

1st Reading 1 Corinthians 12:12-14, 27-31

For as the body is one, and hath many members; and all the members of the body, whereas they are many, yet are one body, so also is Christ. For in one Spirit, we were all bapitized into the body,  wheather Jews or Gentiles, whether bond or free; and in one Spirit we have all been made to drink. For the body also is not one member, but many.

Now you are the body of Christ, and the members of the member. And God indeed hath set somein the church; first apostles, secondly prophets, thirdly doctors; after that miracles; then the graces of healings, helps, governments, kinds of tongues, interpretations of speaches.  Are all apostles? Are all prophets? Are all doctors? Are all workers of miracles? Have all the grace of healing? Do all speak with tongues? Do all interpret? But be zealous for better gifts. And I shew unto you yet a more excellent way.

Gospel according to St. Luke 7:11-17

And it came to pass afterwards, that he went into a city  that is called Naim; and there went with him his disciples. and a great multitude. And when he came nigh to the gate of the city, behold a dead man was carried out, the only son of his mother; and she was a widow: and a great multitude of the city was with her. Whom when the Lord had seen , behing moved with mercy towards her, he said to her: Weep not. And he came near and touched the still. And they that carried it, stood still. And he said: Young man, I say to thee, arise. And he that was dead, sat up, and began to speak. And he gave him to his mother. And there came a fear on them all: and they glorified God, saying: A great prophet is risen  up among us: and, God hath visited his people.  And this rumour of him went forth throughout all Judea, and throughoutall the country round about.

Catechism of the Catholic Church 1737

An effect can be tolerated without being willed by its agent; for instance, a mother’s exhaustion from tending to her sick child.  A bad effectis not imputable if it was not willed either as an end or as a means of an action, e.g., a deatha person incurs in aiding someone in danger. For a bad effect to be imputable it must be forseeable and the agent must have the possibility of avoiding it, as in the case of manslaughter caused by a drunken driver.
