Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Matthew 8:23-27. 

As Jesus got into a boat, his disciples followed him.
Suddenly a violent storm came up on the sea, so that the boat was being swamped by waves; but he was asleep.
They came and woke him, saying, “Lord, save us! We are perishing!”
He said to them, “Why are you terrified, O you of little faith?” Then he got up, rebuked the winds and the sea, and there was great calm.
The men were amazed and said, “What sort of man is this, whom even the winds and the sea obey?”

Commentary of the day

Saint Cyril of Jerusalem

Saint Cyril of Jerusalem (313-350), Bishop of Jerusalem, Doctor of the Church
Baptismal catecheses, no.10

“What sort of man is this?”

If any one wishes to show piety towards God, let him worship the Son, since otherwise the Father does not accept his service. The Father spoke with a loud voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.” The Father was well pleased in the Son; unless you, too, are well pleased in him, you do not have life… With the knowledge that God is One, know that there is also an Only-begotten Son of God; believe in “One Lord Jesus Christ” (Creed). We say “One” because he alone is Son even if he bears several names…

He is called Christ [that is to say, Anointed One], not as having been anointed by men’s hands, but as having been anointed from all eternity by the Father to his High-Priesthood on behalf of men… He is called “Son of man”, not as having had his generation from earth, as all of us do, but as coming upon the clouds to judge both the living and the dead. He is called Lord, not improperly as those who are so called among men, but rather because lordship is his by nature from all eternity. He is most fittingly called Jesus [that is to say, “the Lord saves”] because he saves by healing. He is called Son, not because a form of adoption has elevated him to this title, but because he was thus begotten by nature.

There are many other titles of our Saviour… But Christ comes in various forms to each one for his profit . For to those who have need of gladness he comes as “vine”; and to those who want to enter he stands as a “door”; and to those who need to offer up their prayers he stands as “High Priest” and “Mediator”. Again, to those who have sins, he becomes a “lamb”, that He may be sacrificed on their behalf. He is made “all things to all men”, while remaining what he is in his own nature.

Saint of the day

1st Martyrs of Rome (+ 1st century)

1 MARTYRs untitled

The FIRST MARTYRS of the CHURCH of ROME
(+ 1st century)

        The first persecution against the Church began by the Emperor Nero, after the burning of the City of Rome in 64, for which many of the faithful were tortured and slain. Some martyrs were burned as living torches at evening banquets, some crucified and others were fed to wild animals.

        Their death is recorded by the pagan writer, Tacitus in his Annales (15, 44), and also by Pope Clement I in his letter to the Corinthians chapters 5-6).

*******************************************

Prayer

Father,

you sanctified the Church of Rome

with the blood of its first martyrs.

May we find strength from their courage

and rejoice in their triumph.
