Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ 

“A voice of one crying out in the desert:

‘Prepare the way of the Lord, make straight his paths.’

1 LAMBstdas0374

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Luke 3:1-6. 

In the fifteenth year of the reign of Tiberius Caesar, when Pontius Pilate was governor of Judea, and Herod was tetrarch of Galilee, and his brother Philip tetrarch of the region of Ituraea and Trachonitis, and Lysanias was tetrarch of Abilene,
during the high priesthood of Annas and Caiaphas, the word of God came to John the son of Zechariah in the desert.
He went throughout (the) whole region of the Jordan, proclaiming a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins,
as it is written in the book of the words of the prophet Isaiah: “A voice of one crying out in the desert: ‘Prepare the way of the Lord, make straight his paths.
Every valley shall be filled and every mountain and hill shall be made low. The winding roads shall be made straight, and the rough ways made smooth,
and all flesh shall see the salvation of God.'”

“Prepare the way of the Lord”

It is written about John the Baptist : “The voice of one crying out in the desert: Prepare the way of the Lord, make straight his paths.” But what follows concerns the Lord our Savior alone. For it is not John who “fills up every valley” but the Lord our Savior. Let each of us consider what he used to be before he came to the faith: he will notice that he was a deep valley, sloping downwards and plunging into the depths. But our Lord Jesus came and sent the Holy Spirit in his place; then “every valley has been filled.” It has been filled with good works and the fruits of the Holy Spirit. Charity does not allow valleys to last in you and, if you possess peace, patience and goodness, not only will you cease to be a valley but you will start to become a mountain of God… “Mountains and hills shall be made low.” In these lowered mountains and hills we can see the enemy powers that stand against humankind. For indeed, in order that the valleys we are talking about may be filled, the enemy powers, mountains and hills, must be made low. But let us see whether the following prophecy concerning the coming of Christ has been fulfilled. In fact the text continues: “The crooked shall be made straight”. Each one of us was crooked– at least, if it concerns what we used to be formerly and not what we still are today – and the coming of Christ, which has taken place even in our souls, has set to rights all that was crooked… Let us pray that his coming may be fulfilled in us each day and that we may be able to say: “I live, no longer I, but Christ lives in me” (Gal 2,20).

Saint of the day

St. Nicholas of Bari († 342)

ANGELICO_Fra_Story_Of_St_Nicholas_Giving_Dowry_To_Three_Poor_Girls

ST. NICHOLAS OF BARI
(† 342)

        St. Nicholas, the patron Saint of Russia, was born toward the end of the third century. His uncle, the Archbishop of Myra in Lycia, ordained him priest, and appointed him abbot of a monastery; and on the death of the archbishop he was elected to the vacant see.

        Throughout his life he retained the bright and guileless manners of his early years, and showed himself the special protector of the innocent and the wronged. Nicholas once heard that a person who had fallen into poverty intended to abandon his three daughters to a life of sin. Determined, if possible, to save their innocence, the Saint went out by night, and, taking with him a bag of gold, flung it into the window of the sleeping father and hurried off. He, on awaking, deemed the gift a godsend, and with it dowered his eldest child. The Saint, overjoyed at his success, made like venture for the second daughter; but the third time as he stole away, the father, who was watching, overtook him and kissed his feet, saying: “Nicholas, why dost thou conceal thyself from me? Thou art my helper, and he who has delivered my soul and my daughters’ from hell.”

        St. Nicholas is usually represented by the side of a vessel, wherein a certain man had concealed the bodies of his three children whom he had killed, but who were restored to life by the Saint.

     He died in 342. His relics were translated in 1807, to Bari, Italy, and there, after fifteen centuries, “the manna of St. Nicholas” still flows from his bones and heals all kinds of sick.
