Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint John 17:1-11a.

When Jesus had said this, he raised his eyes to heaven and said,
“Father, the hour has come. Give glory to your son,
so that your son may glorify you,
just as you gave him authority over all people,
so that he may give eternal life to all you gave him.
Now this is eternal life, that they should know you,
the only true God, and the one whom you sent, Jesus Christ.
I glorified you on earth by accomplishing the work that you gave me to do.
Now glorify me, Father, with you, with the glory that I had with you before the world began.
I revealed your name to those whom you gave me out of the world.
They belonged to you, and you gave them to me,
and they have kept your word.
Now they know that everything you gave me is from you,
because the words you gave to me I have given to them,
and they accepted them and truly understood that I came from you,
and they have believed that you sent me.
I pray for them. I do not pray for the world but for the ones
you have given me, because they are yours,
and everything of mine is yours and everything of yours is mine,
and I have been glorified in them.
And now I will no longer be in the world, but they are in the world,
while I am coming to you. Holy Father, keep them in your name
that you have given me, so that they may be one just as we are.

Tuesday of the Seventh week of Easter

3 JUNE 2014
Saint(s) of the day :

St John XXIII, Pope (1881-1963)

Pope_John_XXIII_-_1959

Pope Saint John XXIII (Latin: Ioannes XXIII), born Angelo Giuseppe Roncalli (Italian pronunciation: [ˈandʒelo dʒuˈzɛppe roŋˈkalli]; 25 November 1881 – 3 June 1963), reigned from 28 October 1958 to his death in 1963.

Angelo Giuseppe Roncalli was the fourth of fourteen children born to a family of sharecroppers that lived in a village in Lombardy.[2] He was ordained a priest on 10 August 1904 and served in a number of posts, including papal nuncio in France and a delegate to Bulgaria, Greece and Turkey. In a consistory on 12 January 1953 Pope Pius XII made Roncalli a cardinal as the Cardinal-Priest of Santa Prisca in addition to naming him the Patriarch of Venice.

Roncalli was elected pope on 28 October 1958 at age 77 after 11 ballots. His selection was unexpected, and Roncalli himself had come to Rome with a return train ticket to Venice. He was the first pope to take the pontifical name of “John” upon election in more than 500 years, and his choice settled the complicated question of official numbering attached to this papal name due to the antipope of this name.

Pope John XXIII surprised those who expected him to be a caretaker pope by calling the historic Second Vatican Council (1962–65), the first session opening on 11 October 1962. He did not live to see it to completion. John died of stomach cancer on 3 June 1963, four and a half years after his election and two months after the completion of his final and famed encyclical, Pacem in Terris.

His passionate views on equality were summed up in his famous statement: ‘We were all made in God’s image, and thus, we are all Godly alike.'[3] John XXIII made many passionate speeches during his pontificate, one of which was on the day that he announced the Second Vatican Council in the middle of the night to the crowd gathered in St. Peter’s Square: “Dear children, returning home, you will find children: give your children a caress and say: This is the caress of the Pope!” [4]

Pope John XXIII was buried in the Vatican grottoes beneath Saint Peter’s Basilica on 6 June 1963 and his cause for canonization was opened on 18 November 1965 by his successor, Pope Paul VI, who declared him a Servant of God. In addition to being named Venerable on 20 December 1999, he was beatified on 3 September 2000 by Pope John Paul II alongside Pope Pius IX and three others. Following his beatification, his body was moved on 3 June 2001 from its original place to the altar of Saint Jerome where it could be seen by the faithful. On 5 July 2013, Pope Francis – bypassing the traditionally required second miracle – declared John XXIII a saint based on his merits of opening the Second Vatican Council. He was canonised alongside John Paul II on 27 April 2014.[5][6] John XXIII today is affectionately known as the “Good Pope” and in Italian, “il Papa buono”.

His feast day is not celebrated on the date of his death as is usual, but it is on 11 October, the day of the first session of the Second Vatican Council. He is also commemorated in the Anglican Church of Canada and the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America with a feast day of 4 June. It was originally 3 June but was later changed. He is also honored by the Episcopal Church on 4 June.

Tuesday of the Seventh week of Easter

Commentary of the day

Saint Cyril of Alexandria (380-444),

1 CYRIL OF ALEX 338px-Rousanu16

Saint Cyril of Alexandria (380-444),
Bishop, Doctor of the Church

Commentary on Saint John’s Gospel, 4,2
(trans. breviary 3rd Saturday of Easter rev.)

“Just as you gave him authority over all people, so he will give eternal life to all you gave him”

“I am dying”, said the Lord, “for all men, so that through me all may have life; by my flesh I have redeemed the flesh all men. For in my death death will die, and fallen human nature will rise again with me. In this way I have become, like you, a man descended from Abraham, so that I may be made like my brethren every respect” (Heb 2,17)… There was never any other way to destroy the one who had the power of death, and therefore death itself. Christ had to give himself up for us; the one had to be the ransom for all, for he was the head of all. Accordingly he said in another place, namely the psalms, when he offered himself to God his Father as a spotless sacrifice on our behalf: “You wanted no sacrifice or oblation, but you prepared a body for me. You took no pleasure in holocausts or sacrifices for sin. Then I said, ‘Here I am’” (Ps 39[40],7f.; Heb 10,5)…

Indeed, Christ’s own words prove to us that he offered his flesh for the life of the world: “Holy Father, keep them.” And again: “For their sake I make myself holy” (Jn 17,11.19)… meaning: “I consecrate and offer myself as a spotless sacrifice with a sweet savour” (cf. Gn 8,21; Eph 5,2). In fact, what was offered on the altar was made holy or called sacred according to the law. Therefore Christ gave his body for the life of all, and through his body planted his life in us… When God’s life-giving Word came to dwell in human flesh, he remade it for its good, that is, for its life.
