 “Stretch out your hand.”

STRECTH OUT YOUR HAND wjpas0591

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Luke 6:6-11.

On a certain sabbath Jesus went into the synagogue and taught, and there was a man there whose right hand was withered.
The scribes and the Pharisees watched him closely to see if he would cure on the sabbath so that they might discover a reason to accuse him.
But he realized their intentions and said to the man with the withered hand, “Come up and stand before us.” And he rose and stood there.
Then Jesus said to them, “I ask you, is it lawful to do good on the sabbath rather than to do evil, to save life rather than to destroy it?”
Looking around at them all, he then said to him, “Stretch out your hand.” He did so and his hand was restored.
But they became enraged and discussed together what they might do to Jesus.

Commentary of the day

 Saint Caesarius of Arles

CAESARIUS th

Saint Caesarius of Arles (470-543), monk and Bishop
Sermons for the people, no.57,4

“The scribes and the Pharisees watched him closely…  so that they might discover a reason to accuse him”

The Lord will say to those who despise his mercy : “O man, it is I who formed you from clay with my own hands, I who breathed spirit into your earthly body, I who deigned to bestow on you our image and likeness, I who set you in the midst of the delights of Paradise. But it is you who, despising the commandments of life, chose to follow the tempter rather than the Lord…

Following this, while you were driven out of Paradise and, through sin, held fast in the bonds of death, moved by pity I entered into the virgin’s womb to come into the world without compromise to her virginity. I was laid in a manger, wrapped in swaddling clothes; I bore the indignities of childhood and the sufferings of being human, by which I made myself like you with the sole object of making you in my likeness. I endured the blows and the spitting of those who mocked me, I drank the vinegar with the myrrh. Beaten with rods, crowned with thorns, nailed to the cross, pierced by the lance, I rendered up my soul in torment that I might rescue you from death. See the marks of the nails by which I was hung; see my side pierced through with wounds. I have borne your suffering to give you my glory; I have borne your death so that you might live for eternity. I rested, enclosed within the tomb, so that you might reign in heaven.

Why then have you lost what I suffered for your sake ? Why have you set aside the graces of your redemption?… Give me back your life for which I gave you my own; give me back the life that you are constantly destroying with the wounds of your sins.”

Saint of the day

St. Cloud, Priest (522-c.560)

San_Clodoaldo-o_Cloud-A

SAINT CLOUD
Priest
(522- c. 560)

        St. Cloud is the first and most illustrious Saint among the princes of the royal family of the first race in France. He was son of Chlodomir, King of Orleans, the eldest son of St. Clotilda, and was born in 522. He was scarce three years old when his father was killed in Burgundy; but his grandmother Clotilda brought up him and his two brothers at Paris, and loved them extremely.

Their ambitious uncles divided the kingdom of Orleans between them, and stabbed with their own hands two of their nephews. Cloud, by a special providence, was saved from the massacre, and, renouncing the world, devoted himself to the service of God in a monastic state. After a time he put himself under the discipline of St. Severinus, a holy recluse who lived near Paris, from whose hands he received the monastic habit.

      Wishing to live unknown to the world, he withdrew secretly into Provence, but his hermitage being made public, he returned to Paris, and was received with the greatest joy imaginable. At the earnest request of the people, he was ordained priest by Eusebius, Bishop of Paris, in 551, and served that Church some time in the functions of the sacred ministry.

        He afterward retired to St. Cloud, two leagues below Paris, where he built a monastery. Here he assembled many pious men, who fled out of the world for fear of losing their souls in it. St. Cloud was regarded by them as their superior, and he animated them to all virtue both by word and example. He was indefatigable in instructing and exhorting the people of the neighboring country, and piously ended his days about the year 560.
