Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint John 10:22-30.

The feast of the Dedication was taking place in Jerusalem. It was winter.
And Jesus walked about in the temple area on the Portico of Solomon.
So the Jews gathered around him and said to him, “How long are you going to keep us in suspense? If you are the Messiah, tell us plainly.”
Jesus answered them, “I told you and you do not believe. The works I do in my Father’s name testify to me.
But you do not believe, because you are not among my sheep.
My sheep hear my voice; I know them, and they follow me.
I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish. No one can take them out of my hand.
My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all, and no one can take them out of the Father’s hand.
The Father and I are one.”

Commentary of the day

Saint Hilary (c.315-367),

Bishop of Poitiers, Doctor of the Church
De Trinitate II, 8

“The Father and I are one.”

     The Father is who he is, and we must believe that. As for the Son, our mind gets discouraged in trying to reach him and with every word we hesitate to make it heard. For he is begotten of the One who is not begotten, the only-begotten of the one who is the One and Only, truth come forth from truth, the living born of the living, the perfect one who comes from the perfect one, power from power, wisdom from wisdom, glory from glory, “the image of the invisible God” (Col 1:15)…

How shall we understand the only Son’s being begotten by the One who is not begotten?… This begetting is not a break or a division…: “The Father is in me and I am in the Father.” (Jn 10:38) He is not adopted, for the Son is the true Son of God and says: “Whoever sees me sees the Father.” (Jn 14:9) He did not come into existence like other beings, obeying a command, for… he has life in himself, like the one who begot him has life in himself (Jn 5:26)… The one who comes from the perfect One is perfect, since the one who possesses everything gave him everything. The Father and the Son each possess the secret of that birth.

Saint of the day

St. Elphege,

Archbishop and Martyr (954-1012)

Sant_Elfego-Elfege-di_Canterbury

SAINT ELPHEGE
Archbishop, Martyr
(954-1012)

        St. Elphege was born in the year 954, of a noble Saxon family. He first became a monk in the monastery of Deerhurst, near Tewkesbury, England, and afterwards lived as a hermit near Bath, where he founded a community under the rule of St. Benedict, and became its first abbot.

At thirty years of age he was chosen Bishop of Winchester, and twenty-two years later he became Archbishop of Canterbury. In 1011, when the Danes landed in Kent and took the city of Canterbury, putting all to fire and sword, St. Elphege was captured and carried off in the expectation of a large ransom. He was unwilling that his ruined church and people should be put to such expense, and was kept in a loathsome prison at Greenwich for seven months.

        While so confined some friends came and urged him to lay a tax upon his tenants to raise the sum demanded for his ransom. “What reward can I hope for,” said he, “if I spend upon myself what belongs to the poor? Better give up to the poor what is ours, than take from them the little which is their own.” As he still refused to give ransom, the enraged Danes fell upon him in a fury, beat him with the blunt sides of their weapons, and bruised him with stones until one, whom the Saint had baptized shortly before, put an end to his sufferings by the blow of an axe.

        He died on Easter Saturday, April 19, 1012, his last words being a prayer for his murderers.

        His body was first buried in St. Paul’s, London, but was afterwards translated to Canterbury by King Canute. A church dedicated to St. Elphege still stands upon the place of his martyrdom at Greenwich.
