Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ 

“Most blessed are you among women,

and blessed is the fruit of your womb.”

1 VISITATION wjpas0697

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Luke 1:39-45.


Mary set out in those days and traveled to the hill country in haste to a town of Judah,

where she entered the house of Zechariah and greeted Elizabeth.
When Elizabeth heard Mary’s greeting, the infant leaped in her womb, and Elizabeth, filled with the holy Spirit,
cried out in a loud voice and said, “Most blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb.
And how does this happen to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me?
For at the moment the sound of your greeting reached my ears, the infant in my womb leaped for joy.
Blessed are you who believed that what was spoken to you by the Lord would be fulfilled.”

Commentary of the day

Saint John Chrysostom

1 375px-Johnchrysostom

Saint John Chrysostom (c.345-407), priest at Antioch then Bishop of Constantinople, Doctor of the Church
A Homily attributed to,

“The infant in my womb leaped for joy”

O what a novel and wonderful mystery! John has not yet been born but already he gives voice with his bounds; he has not yet appeared but already he manifests signs of his presence; he cannot yet cry and already he is heard through what he does; as yet he has not begun his life and already he is preaching about God; he does not yet see the light and is already pointing to the sun; he has not yet been brought forth and already he hastens to act as forerunner. The Lord is there! John cannot restrain himself; he is not going to be restricted by the limitations set by nature but strives to break out of the prison of his mother’s womb and make known beforehand the Savior’s coming. “He who breaks our bonds has come,” he says. “and am I to remain shackled? Am I still bound to remain here? The Word comes to re-establish all things and am I still to remain captive? I will come out and run ahead of him and announce to all: Behold, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world” (Jn 1,29).

       But tell us, John, held fast as you are in the darkness of your mother’s womb, how is it that you see and hear? How can you behold divine things? How can you be leaping and rejoicing? “The mystery that is taking place is great indeed,” he says. “It is something beyond human understanding. It is with good reason that I am doing something new in the natural order on behalf of him who is to do something new in the supernatural order. I see even before my birth because I see the Sun of Justice gestating (Mal 3,20). I perceive by ear because, in coming into the world, I myself am the voice that goes before the great Word. I cry out because I behold the only Son of the Father clothed in his flesh. I rejoice because I see the world’s Creator receive human form. I leap for joy when I think that the Redeemer of the world has taken a human body. I am the forerunner of his coming and precede your testimony with my own.

The Great O Antiphons: “O Clavis David”

San_Davide_BL

The Great O Antiphons
December 20: “O Clavis David”

These Great “O Antiphons” at the Magnificat were first used by the Church in the 8th and 9th centuries.

They are said in order, based on various titles for the Christ and are scripturally-based short prayers for the 17th to the 23rd of December.

In these “O Antiphons” the Church expresses her deep longing for the coming of the Messiah.

 

Christ, harrower of hell
(See Isaiah 22:22; Revelation 3:7)

O Clavis   David,

et   sceptrum domus Israël,

qui   aperis, et nemo claudit,

claudis,   et nemo aperuit:

veni, et   educ vinctum

de domo   carceris,

sedentem   in tenebris,

et umbra   mortis.

O Key of David,

and scepter of the house of Israel,

you open, and no one shuts,

you shut, and no one opens:

come, and lead the prisoner

from jail,

seated in darkness

and in the shadow of death.

Saint of the day

St. Dominic of Silos,

Abbot (11th century)

San_Domenico_di_Silos_B

SAINT DOMINIC OF SILOS
Abbot
(c. 1000-1073)

   St. Dominic of Silos was defender of the faith. Born in Canas, Navarre, Spain, circa 1000, he entered the Benedictines at San Millan de Ia Cogolla. King Garcia III of Navarre challenged him when he became abbot of the monastery, and Dominic refused to surrender part of the Benedictine lands to the crown. For this he was exiled, going to King Ferdinand I of Castile and Leon, who made him abbot of St. Sebastian Abbey at Silos, now called St. Dominic’s.

Dominic reformed the abbey, built the cloisters in Romanesque style, and started a scriptorium that became famous throughout the region. One of the most beloved saints in Spain, Dominic also rescued Christian slaves from the Moors.

      Dominic’s shrine is noted for its place in the birth of Dominic de Guzman, the founder of the Order of Preachers. Dominic de Guzman’s mother begged for a child there. Dominic was also noted for miracles of healing.
