Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ

“Go and tell John what you have seen and heard:

the blind regain their sight, the lame walk,

lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised”

JOHN IN PRISON stdas0579

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Luke 7:19-23. 

And sent them to the Lord to ask, “Are you the one who is to come, or should we look for another?”
When the men came to him, they said, “John the Baptist has sent us to you to ask, ‘Are you the one who is to come, or should we look for another?'”
At that time he cured many of their diseases, sufferings, and evil spirits; he also granted sight to many who were blind.
And he said to them in reply, “Go and tell John what you have seen and heard: the blind regain their sight, the lame walk, lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, the poor have the good news proclaimed to them.
And blessed is the one who takes no offense at me.”

Commentary of the day

Saint Ambrose

1 AmbroseOfMilan

 Saint Ambrose (c.340-397), Bishop of Milan and Doctor of the Church
Commentary on the Gospel of Luke, 5, 99-102

“Are you the one who is to come?”

The Lord, knowing that without the Gospel nobody’s faith may be complete– for the Bible begins from the Old Testament, but is accomplished with the New Testament -, does not answer the questions about him with words, but by his acts. “Go, he says, and tell John what you have seen and heard: the blind regain their sight, the lame walk, lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, the poor have the good news proclaimed to them”. This testimony is complete because it is of him that they had prophesied: “The Lord sets prisoners free; the Lord gives sight to the blind. The Lord raises up those who are bowed down…The Lord shall reign forever, through all generations!” (Ps 145,7s). These are the signs of a power that is not human, but divine…

And yet these are only the least examples of the testimony given by Christ. What makes the fullness of faith is the Lord’s cross, his death, his burying. This is why, after giving the answer we have quoted, he also says: “And blessed is the one who takes no offense at me.” In fact, the cross could have indeed provoked the fall of the Chosen ones, but there is no greater testimony of a divine person, nothing that seems more going beyond human forces than this offering of one man for the entire world. Through this only, the Lord reveals himself fully. Furthermore, this is how John had defined him: “Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world” (Jn 1,29).

Saint of the day

St. Eusebius, Bishop († c. 371)

Sant_Eusebio_di_Vercelli

SAINT EUSEBIUS
Bishop

(† c. 371)

        St. Eusebius was born of a noble family, in the island of Sardinia, where his father is said to have died in prison for the Faith. The Saint’s mother carried him and his sister, both infants, to Rome. Eusebius having been ordained, served the Church of Vercelli with such zeal that on the episcopal chair becoming vacant he was unanimously chosen, by both clergy and people, to fill it.

The holy bishop saw that the best and first means to labor effectually for the edification and sanctification of his people was to have a zealous clergy. He was at the same time very careful to instruct his flock, and inspire them with the maxims of the Gospel. The force of the truth which he preached, together with his example, brought many sinners to a change of life.

        He courageously fought against the heretics, who had him banished to Scythopolis, end thence to Upper Thebais in Egypt, where he suffered so grievously as to win, in some of the panegyrics in his praise, the title of martyr.

        He died in the latter part of the year 371.
