‘We played the flute for you, but you did not dance.

We sang a dirge, but you did not weep.’

1 astdas0688Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Luke 7:31-35.

Jesus said to the crowds: “To what shall I compare the people of this generation? What are they like?
They are like children who sit in the marketplace and call to one another, ‘We played the flute for you, but you did not dance. We sang a dirge, but you did not weep.’
For John the Baptist came neither eating food nor drinking wine, and you said, ‘He is possessed by a demon.’
The Son of Man came eating and drinking and you said, ‘Look, he is a glutton and a drunkard, a friend of tax collectors and sinners.’
But wisdom is vindicated by all her children.”

SAINT ROBERT BELLARMINE
(1542-1621)
Bishop and Doctor of the Church

          Saint Robert Bellarmine was born in Tuscany in the town of Monte Pulciano in 1542, became a Jesuit and was ordained priest. He was a vigourous defender of the faith at the time of the Reformation. He also taught theology in the Roman College. He was made a Cardinal in 1599, but after a disagreement with the Pope was sent as bishop to Capua in 1602. He was a very pastoral bishop, visiting, preaching and teaching, and giving the example of a truly Christian life. He returned to Rome in 1605, and died in 1621.

God our Father,
you gave Robert Bellarmine wisdom and goodness
to defend the faith of your Church.
By his prayers
may we always rejoice in the profession of our faith.
