“What if I want him to remain until I come?

What concern is it of yours?

1 Leonardo_da_Vinci_(1452-1519)_-_The_Last_Supper_(1495-1498)

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint John 21:20-25. 

Peter turned and saw the disciple following whom Jesus loved, the one who had also reclined upon his chest during the supper and had said, “Master, who is the one who will betray you?”
When Peter saw him, he said to Jesus, “Lord, what about him?”
Jesus said to him, “What if I want him to remain until I come? What concern is it of yours? You follow me.”
So the word spread among the brothers that that disciple would not die. But Jesus had not told him that he would not die, just “What if I want him to remain until I come? (What concern is it of yours?)”
It is this disciple who testifies to these things and has written them, and we know that his testimony is true.
There are also many other things that Jesus did, but if these were to be described individually, I do not think the whole world would contain the books that would be written.

Saint Teresa of Avila

Saint Teresa of Avila (1515-1582),

Carmelite, Doctor of the Church
Poem “ Vuestra soy, para vos nací ” (trans. E.Allison Peers)

“What if I want him to remain until I come? What concern is it of yours?”

I am thine and born for thee,
What wilt thou do with me?

Sovereign Lord upon thy throne,
Endless Wisdom, one and whole,
Goodness that dost feed my soul,
Good and great, one God alone,
As I sing my love for thee.
What wilt thou do with me?

Thine I am, for thou didst make me;
Thine, for thou alone didst save me;
Thine – thou couldst endure to have me;
For thine own didst deign to take me.
Never once didst thou forsake me.
Ruined were I if not for thee:
What wilt thou do with me?

What, O good and loving Lord,
What wilt thou have this creature do?
This thy slave, a sinner too,
Waiting till she hears thy word?
With thy will in close accord,
Sweetest Love, I come to thee:
What wilt thou do with me?

Take, O Lord, my loving heart:
See, I yield it to thee whole,
With my body, life and soul
And my nature’s every part.
Sweetest Spouse, my life thou art;
I have given myself to thee:
What wilt thou do with me?

Let me live or let me die;
Give me sickness, give me health;
Give me poverty or wealth;
Let me strive or peaceful lie.
Weakness give or strength supply –
I accept it all of thee:
What wilt thou do with me?…

I am thine and born for thee,
What wilt thou do with me?

Saint of the day

St. Desiderius, Bishop & Martyr (+ 608)

        SAINT DESIDERIUS
Bishop and Martyr
(+ 608)

        Desiderius was born at Autun, Gaul, and also known as Didier.  He became bishop of Vienne. His enforcement of strict clerical  discipline, his attachs on simony, and his denunciation of the  immorality of Queen Brunhildis’ court made him many enemies.

        He was denounced by the queen for paganism to Pope Gregory  the Great who completely exonerated him, but was banished by a synod  controlled by Brunhildis.

        Desiderius returned four years later but was murdered by  three followers of King Theodoric, whom he had publicly censured
