Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ

“Father, they are your gift to me.”

JESUS PRAY pppas0107

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint John 17:20-26.

Lifting up his eyes to heaven, Jesus prayed saying: “I pray not only for them, but also for those who will believe in me through their word,
so that they may all be one, as you, Father, are in me and I in you, that they also may be in us, that the world may believe that you sent me.
And I have given them the glory you gave me, so that they may be one, as we are one,
I in them and you in me, that they may be brought to perfection as one, that the world may know that you sent me, and that you loved them even as you loved me.
Father, they are your gift to me. I wish that where I am they also may be with me, that they may see my glory that you gave me, because you loved me before the foundation of the world.
Righteous Father, the world also does not know you, but I know you, and they know that you sent me.
I made known to them your name and I will make it known, that the love with which you loved me may be in them and I in them.”

Commentary of the day

Eusebius of Caesarea (c.265-340),

Bishop, theologian, historian
Ecclesiastical theology, III, 18-19 ; PG 24, 1042f.

“May they too be one in us”

     In his great priestly prayer our Savior requests that we might be with him where he is and behold his glory. He loves us as the Father loves him and desires to give to us everything the Father has given to him. He wishes to pass on to us in his turn the glory he possesses from his Father and to make us all one. He does not want us to be a great crowd anymore but that we should all together form a unity, brought together by his divinity into the glory of the kingdom, not by fusion into one substance but in perfection, the summit of virtue. This is what Christ announced when he said: “May they all be completely one!” Thus, made perfect by wisdom, prudence, justice, piety and all Christ’s virtues, we shall be united to the unfailing light of the Father’s divinity, ourselves become light through our union with him and fully children of God through our communion with his only Son, who causes us to participate in the splendor of his divinity.

     This is how we shall all become one with the Father and the Son. For just as he declared that the Father and he were one – “My Father and I,” he said, “are one” (Jn 10,30) – so he prays that we might share in the same unity in imitation of him… Not the unity of nature that he has with the Father but this one: just as the Father has made him share in his own glory, so he, in imitation of the Father, will pass on his glory to those whom he loves.

Saint of the day

Bl. Teresa Demjanovich

Miriam Teresa Demjanovich, S.C.
(March 26, 1901–May 8, 1927)

Sr. Miriam Teresa was an American Ruthenian Catholic Sister of Charity, who has been beatified by the Catholic Church. The ceremony for this was the first to take place in the United States.

She was born Teresa Demjanovich in Bayonne, New Jersey, on March 26, 1901, the youngest of seven children, of Alexander Demjanovich and Johanna Suchy), Ruthenian immigrants to the United States from what is now eastern Slovakia. She received Baptism, Confirmation, and her First Holy Communion in the Byzantine Ruthenian rite of her parents.

Teresa felt called to the religious life from a very young age. She delayed her entrance to care for her mother who fell ill. Her family encouragedher to pursue a college education, she attended the College of St. Elizabeth graduating with highest honors in 1923. She pursued her desire to enter the discalced Carmel, but was discouraged by superiors because of health concerns. She then considered a teaching order and For the Feast of the Immaculate Conception, she made a novena and, at its conclusion on December 8, she decided she was called to enter the Sisters of Charity of St. Elizabeth. She never received an official transfer of rite, and therefore remained a Byzantine Rite Catholic while serving as a Religious Sister in a Roman Rite congregation.

As a postulant and novice, Demjanovich taught at the Academy of St. Elizabeth in Convent Station during 1925-1926. In June 1926, her spiritual director, Father Benedict Bradley, O.S.B., asked her to write the conferences for the novitiate. She wrote 26 conferences which, after her death, were published in a book, Greater Perfection.

In November 1926, Demjanovich became ill. After a tonsillectomy, she returned to the convent, but was soon diagnosed with myocarditis and acute appendicitis. Doctors did not think she was strong enough for an operation and her condition worsened. Demjanovich’s profession of permanent religious vows was made “in articulo mortis” (danger of death) on 2 April 1927. She was operated on for appendicitis on 6 May 1927 and died on 8 May 1927.

Favors and cures attributed to her intercession are continually being reported. On December 17, 2013, Pope Francis approved the attribution of a miraculous healing to the intercession of Demjanovich, opening the way to her beatification. Demjanovich was beatified at a ceremony on October 4, 2014, held at the Cathedral Basilica of the Sacred Heart in Newark
