Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Matthew 28:16-20. 

The eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had ordered them.
When they saw him, they worshiped, but they doubted.
Then Jesus approached and said to them, “All power in heaven and on earth has been given to me.
Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the holy Spirit,
teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, until the end of the age.”

Commentary of the day

Saint Anthony of Padua

Saint Anthony of Padua (c.1195-1231),

Franciscan, Doctor of the Church
Sermons for Sundays and the Feasts of the Saints

“One God, one Lord, in the trinity of persons and the unity of their nature” (Preface)

The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit are of one substance and inseparably equal. Their unity is in their essence, their plurality in the persons. The Lord openly showed the unity of the divine essence and the trinity of persons when he said: “Baptize them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.” He did not say “in the names”, but “in the name”, by which he showed the unity of essence. But he then used three names in order to show that there are three persons.

In this Trinity can be found the supreme origin of all things, perfect beauty, very blessed joy. As Saint Augustine said in his book on true religion, the supreme origin is God the Father, from whom all things come, from whom proceed the Son and the Holy Spirit. The very perfect beauty is the Son, the truth of the Father, who is not dissimilar to him in anything, whom we venerate with the Father and in the Father, who is the model for all things, because everything was made through him and everything relates to him. The very blessed joy, the sovereign goodness is the Holy Spirit who is the gift of the Father and of the Son; and we must believe and hold that this gift is exactly like the Father and the Son.

When we look at creation, we end up with the Trinity which is of one single substance. We understand one single God: the Father from whom we are, the Son by whom we are, the Holy Spirit in whom we are – the Origin to whom we run; the model whom we follow; the grace which reconciles us.

Saint of the day

St. Petronilla, Virgin (1st century)

1 Santa_Petronilla_C

 SAINT PETRONILLA
Virgin
(1st century)

        Among the disciples of the apostles in the primitive age of saints this holy virgin shone as a bright star in the Church. She lived when Christians were more solicitous to live well than to write much: they knew how to die for Christ, but did not compile long books in which vanity has often a greater share than charity. Hence no particular account of her actions has been handed down to us. But how eminent her sanctity was we may judge from the lustre by which it was distinguished among apostles, prophets, and martyrs.

She is said to have been a daughter of the apostle St. Peter; that St. Peter was married before his vocation to the apostleship we learn from the Gospel. St. Clement of Alexandria assures us that his wife attained to the glory of martyrdom, at which Peter himself encouraged her, bidding her to remember Our Lord. But it seems not certain whether St. Petronilla was more than the spiritual daughter of that apostle.

        She flourished at Rome, and was buried on the way to Ardea, where in ancient times a cemetery and a church bore her name.
