Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ

Then he took the seven loaves and the fish, gave thanks, broke the loaves,

and gave them to the disciples, who in turn gave them to the crowds.

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Matthew 15:29-37. 

At that time: Jesus walked by the Sea of Galilee, went up on the mountain, and sat down there.  
Great crowds came to him, having with them the lame, the blind, the deformed, the mute, and many others. They placed them at his feet, and he cured them.
The crowds were amazed when they saw the mute speaking, the deformed made whole, the lame walking, and the blind able to see, and they glorified the God of Israel.
Jesus summoned his disciples and said, “My heart is moved with pity for the crowd, for they have been with me now for three days and have nothing to eat. I do not want to send them away hungry, for fear they may collapse on the way.”
The disciples said to him, “Where could we ever get enough bread in this deserted place to satisfy such a crowd?”
Jesus said to them, “How many loaves do you have?” “Seven,” they replied, “and a few fish.”
He ordered the crowd to sit down on the ground.
Then he took the seven loaves and the fish, gave thanks, broke the loaves, and gave them to the disciples, who in turn gave them to the crowds.
They all ate and were satisfied. They picked up the fragments left over–seven baskets full.

Commentary of the day

Catechism of the Catholic Church
§1402-1405 – Copyright © Libreria Editrice Vaticana

Our bread in the desert: the Eucharist – “Pledge of the Glory To Come”

If the Eucharist is the memorial of the Passover of the Lord Jesus, if by our communion at the altar we are filled “with every heavenly blessing and grace,”( Roman Canon) then the Eucharist is also an anticipation of the heavenly glory. At the Last Supper the Lord himself directed his disciples’ attention toward the fulfillment of the Passover in the kingdom of God: “I tell you I shall not drink again of this fruit of the vine until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father’s kingdom.”‘(Mt 26:29) Whenever the Church celebrates the Eucharist she remembers this promise and turns her gaze “to him who is to come.”(Rev 1:4) In her prayer she calls for his coming: “Marana tha!”(1 Cor 16 22) “Come, Lord Jesus!”(Rev 22:20) “May your grace come and this world pass away!”(Didache 10, 6)

The Church knows that the Lord comes even now in his Eucharist and that he is there in our midst. However, his presence is veiled. Therefore we celebrate the Eucharist “awaiting the blessed hope and the coming of our Savior, Jesus Christ,” (Titus 2:13) asking “to share in your glory when every tear will be wiped away. On that day we shall see you, our God, as you are. We shall become like you and praise you for ever through Christ our Lord.” (EP III)

There is no surer pledge or dearer sign of this great hope in the new heavens and new earth “in which righteousness dwells,” (2 Pet 3:13) than the Eucharist. Every time this mystery is celebrated, “the work of our redemption is carried on” (LG 3) and we “break the one bread that provides the medicine of immortality, the antidote for death, and the food that makes us live for ever in Jesus Christ.” (St. Ignatius of Antioch)

Saints of the day

St. Bibiana, Virgin and Martyr (4th century)

Santa_Bibiana-Viviana-A

SAINT BIBIANA
Virgin and Martyr
(4th century)

        St. Bibiana was a native of Rome. Flavian, her father, was apprehended, burned in the face with a hot iron, and banished to Aequapendente, where he died of his wounds a few days after; and her mother, Dafrosa, was some time after beheaded.

        Bibiana and her sister Demetria, after the death of their parents, were stripped of all they had in the world and suffered much from poverty. Apronianus, Governor of Rome, summoned them to appear before him. Demetria, having made confession of her faith, fell down and expired at the foot of the tribunal, in the presence of the judge.

Apronianus gave orders that Bibiana should be put into the hands of a wicked woman named Rufina, who was to bring her to another way of thinking; but Bibiana, making prayer her shield, remained invincible. Apronianus, enraged at the courage and perseverance of a tender virgin, ordered her to be tied to a pillar and whipped with scourges loaded with leaden plummets till she expired.

        The Saint underwent this punishment cheerfully, and died in the hands of the executioners.

Saints of the day

Bl. Ivan Slezyuk,

Bishop (1896-1973)

Beato_Giovanni-Ivan-Slezyuk_A

Blessed Ivan Slezyuk
Bishop of the “clandestine” Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church
(1896-1973)

        The Blessed Bishop was born on 14 January 1896 in the village of Zhyvachiv, Stanislaviv (now Ivano-Frankivsk) Region. After graduating from the seminary in 1923, he was ordained to the priesthood. In April 1945 Bishop Hryhory Khomyshyn ordained him as his Co-adjutor with the right of succession as a precaution in case Bishop Khomyshyn should be arrested.

    However, shortly thereafter on 2 June 1945, Bishop Ivan was arrested and deported for ten years to the labour camps in Vorkuta, Russia. In 1950 he was transferred to the labour camps in Mordovia, Russia. After his release on 15 November 1954, he returned to Ivano-Frankivsk.

        In 1962, he was arrested for the second time and imprisoned for five years in a camp of strict regiment. After his release on 30 November 1968, he had to often go to the KGB for regular “talks.”
The last visit was two weeks before his death, which was on 2 December 1973 in Ivano-Frankivsk.

He was beatified on 27 June 2001 by pope John Paul II.
