Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ

‘We are unprofitable servants;

we have done what we were obliged to do.'”

SERVANT stdas0182

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Luke 17:7-10.

Jesus said to the Apostles: “Who among you would say to your servant who has just come in from plowing or tending sheep in the field, ‘Come here immediately and take your place at table’?
Would he not rather say to him, ‘Prepare something for me to eat. Put on your apron and wait on me while I eat and drink. You may eat and drink when I am finished’?
Is he grateful to that servant because he did what was commanded?
So should it be with you. When you have done all you have been commanded, say, ‘We are unprofitable servants; we have done what we were obliged to do.'”

Commentary of the day

 Saint Ambrose

1 1330px-AmbroseGiuLungara

 Saint Ambrose (c.340-397), Bishop of Milan and Doctor of the Church
On Saint Luke’s Gospel 8, 31-32 (cf SC 52, p. 113)

“We are unprofitable servants”

Let no one boast of what they have done since we owe our service to the Lord in simple justice… We should keep on working for our Lord as long as we live. Recognize, then, that you are a servant employed in a great number of duties. Don’t puff yourself up at being called “child of God” (1Jn 3,1): let us recognize the grace but not forget our nature. Don’t make much of it if you have done your duties well since you have done what you ought to do. The sun fulfils its role, the moon obeys, the angels carry out their duties. Saint Paul, “chosen instrument of the Lord for the gentiles” (cf. Acts 9,15), writes: “I am not fit to be called an apostle because I persecuted the church of God” (1Cor 15,9). And if elsewhere he demonstrates that he is not aware of any blame, he afterwards adds: “But I do not thereby stand acquitted” (1Cor 4,4). Neither should we either; let us not claim praise for ourselves, do not let us anticipate the judgement of God.

Saints of the day

St. Leo the Great,

Pope and Doctor of the Church († 461) – Memorial

San_Leone_I_detto_Magno_E

SAINT LEO THE GREAT
Pope and Doctor of the Church
(†461)

        Leo was born at Rome. He embraced the sacred ministry, was made archdeacon of the Roman Church by St. Celestine, and under him and Sixtus III. had a large share in governing the Church. On the death of Sixtus, Leo was chosen Pope, and consecrated on St. Michael’s day, 440, amid great joy.

        It was a time of terrible trial. Vandals and Huns were wasting the provinces of the empire, and Nestorians, Pelagians, and other heretics wrought more grievous havoc among souls. Whilst Leo’s zeal made head against these perils, there arose the new heresy of Eutyches, who confounded the two natures of Christ. At once the vigilant pastor proclaimed the true doctrine of the Incarnation in his famous “tome;” but fostered by the Byzantine court, the heresy gained a strong hold amongst the Eastern monks and bishops. After three years of unceasing toil, Leo brought about its solemn condemnation by the Council of Chalcedon, the Fathers all signing his tome, and exclaiming, “Peter hath spoken by Leo.”

        Soon after, Attila with his Huns broke into Italy, and marched through its burning cities upon Rome. Leo went out boldly to meet him, and prevailed on him to turn back. Astonished to see the terrible Attila, the “Scourge of God,” fresh from the sack of Aquileia, Milan, Pavia, with the rich prize of Rome within his grasp, turn his great host back to the Danube at the Saint’s word, his chiefs asked him why he had acted so strangely. He answered that he saw two venerable personages, supposed to be Sts. Peter and Paul, standing behind Leo, and impressed by this vision he withdrew. If the perils of the Church are as great now as in St. Leo’s day, St. Peter’s solicitude is not less. Two years later the city fell a prey to the Vandals; but even then Leo saved it from destruction.

        He died A. D. 461, having ruled the Church twenty years.

Saints of the day

St. Andrew Avellino,

Priest (1561-1608)

Sant_Andrea_Avellino_C

SAINT ANDREW AVELLINO
Priest

(1521-1608)

        After a holy youth, Lancelot Avellino was ordained priest at Naples. At the age of thirty-six he entered the Theatine Order, and took the name of Andrew, to show his love for the cross. For fifty years he was afflicted with a most painful rupture; yet he would never use a carriage. Once when he was carrying the Viaticum, and a storm had extinguished the lamps, a heavenly light encircled him, guided his steps, and sheltered him from the rain. But as a rule, his sufferings were unrelieved by God or man.

     On the last day of his life, St. Andrew rose to say Mass. He was in his eighty-ninth year, and so weak that he could scarcely reach the altar. He began the “Judica,” and fell forward in a fit of apoplexy. Laid on a straw mattress, his whole frame was convulsed in agony, while the fiend in visible form advanced to seize his soul. Then, as his brethren prayed and wept, the voice of Mary was heard, bidding the Saint’s guardian angel send the tempter back to hell. A calm and holy smile settled on the features of the dying Saint, as, with a grateful salutation to the image of Mary, he breathed forth his soul to God.

His death happened on the 10th of November, 1608.
