Memorial of Saint Pio of Pietrelcina, priest

1st Reading Proverbs 21:1-6, 10-13

As the divisions of the waters, so the heart of the king is in the hand of the Lord: whithersoever he will he shall turn it. Every way of a man seemeth right to himself: but the Lord weigheth the hearts. To do mercy and judgement, pleaseth the Lord more thatn victims. Haughtiness of the eyes is the enlarging of the heart: the lamp of the wiked is sin. The thoughts of the industriios always bring forth abundance: but every sluggard is always in want. He that gathereth treasures by a lying tongue, is vain and foolish and shall stumble upon the snares of death. The soul of the wicked desireth evil, he will not have pitty on his neighbour. When a pestilent man is punished, the little one will be wiser: and if he follow the wise, he will receive knowledge. The hust considereth seriously the house of the wicked, that he may withdraw the wicked from evil. He that stoppeth his ear against the cry of the poor, shall also cry himself and shall not be heard.

Gospel according to Luke 8:19-21 And his mother and brethtren came unto him; and they could not come at him for the crowd. And it was told him: Thy mother and thy brethren stand without, desiring to see thee. Who answering, said to them: my mother and my brethren are they who hear the word of God, and do it.

Catechism of the Catholic Church 269

“He does whatever he pleases”

The Holy Scriptures repeatedly confess the universal power of God. He is called the “Mighty One of Jacob,” the “Lord of hosts,” the “strong and mighty” one. If God is almighty “in heaven and on earth,” it is because he made them. Nothing is impossible with God, who disposes his works according to his will. He is the Lord of the univers, whose order he established and which remains wholly subject to him and at his disposal. He is master of history, governing hearts and events in keeping his will: “It is always in your power to show great strength, and who can withstand the strength of your arm?”
