Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ

“Who among you, if your son or ox falls into a cistern,

would not immediately pull him out on the sabbath day?”

JESUS WITH BOY stdas0399

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Luke 14:1-6.

On a sabbath Jesus went to dine at the home of one of the leading Pharisees, and the people there were observing him carefully.
In front of him there was a man suffering from dropsy.
Jesus spoke to the scholars of the law and Pharisees in reply, asking, “Is it lawful to cure on the sabbath or not?”
But they kept silent; so he took the man and, after he had healed him, dismissed him.
Then he said to them, “Who among you, if your son or ox falls into a cistern, would not immediately pull him out on the sabbath day?”
But they were unable to answer his question.

Commentary of the day

Saint John-Paul II

Apostolic Letter “Dies Domini”, 61 (copyright Libreria Editrice Vaticana)

“The sabbath was made for man” (Mk 2,27)

As the seventh day blessed and consecrated by God, the “shabbat” concludes the whole work of creation, and is therefore immediately linked to the work of the sixth day when God made man “in his image and likeness” (Gn 1:26). This very close connection between the “day of God” and the “day of man” did not escape the Fathers in their meditation on the biblical creation story. Saint Ambrose says in this regard: “Thanks, then, to the Lord our God who accomplished a work in which he might find rest. He made the heavens, but I do not read that he found rest there; he made the stars, the moon, the sun, and neither do I read that he found rest in them. I read instead that he made man and that then he rested, finding in man one to whom he could offer the forgiveness of sins”. Thus there will be for ever a direct link between the “day of God” and the “day of man”.

When the divine commandment declares: “Remember the Sabbath day in order to keep it holy” (Ex 20:8), the rest decreed in order to honour the day dedicated to God is not at all a burden imposed upon man, but rather an aid to help him to recognize his life-giving and liberating dependence upon the Creator, and at the same time his calling to cooperate in the Creator’s work and to receive his grace. In honouring God’s “rest”, man fully discovers himself, and thus the Lord’s Day bears the profound imprint of God’s blessing (Gn 2:3), by virtue of which, we might say, it is endowed in a way similar to the animals and to man himself, with a kind of “fruitfulness” (Gn 1:22, 28). This “fruitfulness” is apparent above all in filling and, in a certain sense, “multiplying” time itself, deepening in men and women the joy of living and the desire to foster and communicate life.

SAINT MARCELLUS THE CENTURION
Martyr
(3rd century)

        The birthday of the Emperor Maximian Herculeus, in the year 298, was celebrated with extraordinary feasting and solemnity. Marcellus, a Christian centurion or captain in the legion of Trajan, then posted in Spain, not to defile himself with taking part in those impious abominations, left his company, declaring aloud that he was a soldier of Jesus Christ, the eternal King. He was at once committed to prison.

        When the festival was over, Marcellus was brought before a judge, and, having declared his faith, was sent under a strong guard to Aurelian Agricolaus, vicar to the prefect of the prætorium, who passed sentence of death upon him. St. Marcellus was forthwith led to execution, and beheaded on the 30th of October.

  Cassian, the secretary or notary of the court, refused to write the sentence pronounced against the martyr, because it was unjust. He was immediately hurried to prison, and was beheaded, about a month after, on the 3d of December.
