You are the light of the world.

A city set on a mountain cannot be hidden.

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Matthew 5:13-16. 

Jesus said to his disciples: “You are the salt of the earth. But if salt loses its taste, with what can it be seasoned? It is no longer good for anything but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot.
You are the light of the world. A city set on a mountain cannot be hidden.
Nor do they light a lamp and then put it under a bushel basket; it is set on a lampstand, where it gives light to all in the house.
Just so, your light must shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your heavenly Father.”

Saints of the day

St. Ephrem the Syrian,

Doctor of the Church (c.306-373)

 1 Sant_Efrem_C

Saint Ephrem the Syrian
Deacon,  and Doctor of the Church
(c.306-373)

        Ephrem was of Syrian descent and the son of a citizen of Nisibis. While yet a young man, he went to the holy Bishop James, by whom he was baptized. In a short while, he made such progress in holiness and learning that he was appointed teacher of a flourishing  school at Nisibis, a Mesopotamian city.

  He was ordained deacon of the Church of Edessa, and refusing the priesthood out of humility, he was conspicuous with the splendor of every virtue and strove to acquire piety and religion by professing true wisdom.

        His works, taken as a whole, are so infused with the bright light of his learning, that this holy man, even while yet living, was held in great honor and even considered a Doctor of the Church. He was noted, above all, for his great and tender devotion to the Immaculate Virgin.

        Full of merits, he died at Edessa in Mesopotamia on the fourteenth of July, in the reign of Valens. Pope Benedict XV declared him, by a decree of the Congregation of Sacred Rites, to be a Doctor of the universal Church.

Saints of the day

Sts. Primus and Felicianus,

martyrs (3rd century)

1 sts primus untitled

STS. PRIMUS and FELICIANUS
Martyrs
(3rd century)

        These two martyrs were brothers, and lived in Rome, toward the latter part of the third century, for many years, mutually encouraging each other in the practice of all good works. They seemed to possess nothing but for the poor, and often spent both nights and days with the confessors in their dungeons, or at the places of their torments and execution. Some they encouraged to perseverance, others, who had fallen, they raised again, and they made themselves the servants of all in Christ, that all might attain to salvation through Him. Though their zeal was most remarkable, they had escaped the dangers of many bloody persecutions, and were grown old in the heroic exercises of virtue, when it pleased God to crown their labors with a glorious martyrdom.

The pagans raised so great an outcry against them that they were both apprehended and put in chains. They were inhumanly scourged, and then sent to a town twelve miles from Rome to be farther chastised, as avowed enemies to the gods. There they were cruelly tortured, first both together, afterward separately. But the grace of God strengthened them, and they were at length both beheaded on the 9th of June.
