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

Isaac of Stella (?-c.1171),

Cistercian monk
Sermon 42 for the Ascension

“So that your love for me may live in them, and I may live in them”

Just as the head and the body of a person make one and the same person, so the son of the Virgin and his members, the chosen ones, make one and the same person and one single Son of Man. This is the total and complete Christ, the head and the body, of which Scripture speaks. Yes, all the members together form one single body, which with its head, constitutes the one and only Son of Man who, with the Son of God, constitutes the one and only Son of God, just as he together with God constitutes one single God. Thus the entire body, with its head, is Son of Man and Son of God, and consequently God. Whence this word: “That all may be one as you, Father, are in me, and I in you; I pray that they may be [one] in us.” That is why, in conformity with this frequent affirmation of Scripture, the body does not exist without the head, nor does the head exist without the body, any more than the head and the body exist without God. That is the total Christ…

Thus the believers, the spiritual members of Christ, can all say in truth that they are what he himself is, which is to say, the Son of God and God. But what he is by nature, they are as associated members; what he is in fullness, they are through participation. In short, if he is the Son of God because of his origin, his members are sons of God… through adoption, according to what the apostle Paul said: “You have received a spirit of adoption through which we cry out, ‘Abba!’ (that is, ‘Father’).” (Rom 8:15) With this Spirit, “he empowered them to become children of God” (Jn 1:12), so that, according to the teaching of “the first-born of many brothers” (Rom 8:29), they might learn to say: “Our Father in heaven.” (Mt 6:9)

Saint of the day

St. Epiphanius,

Archbishop (c. 310 – 403)

Sant_Epifanio_di_Costanza_di_Cipro

SAINT EPIPHANIUS
Archbishop
(c. 310 – 403)

        St. Epiphanius was born about the year 310, in Palestine. In his youth he began the study of the Holy Scriptures, embraced a monastic life, and went into Egypt to perfect himself in the exercises of that state, in the deserts of that country. He returned to Palestine about the year 333, and built a monastery near the place of his birth. His labors in the exercise of virtue seemed to some to surpass his strength; but his apology always was: “God gives not the kingdom of heaven but on condition that we labor; and all we can do bears no proportion to such a crown.” To his corporal austerities he added an indefatigable application to prayer and study. Most books then in vogue passed through his hands; and he improved himself very much in learning by his travels into many parts.

        Although the skilful director of many others, St. Epiphanius took the great St. Hilarion as his master in a spiritual life, and enjoyed the happiness of his direction and intimate acquaintance from the year 333 to 356.

        The reputation of his virtue made St. Epiphanius known to distant countries, and about the year 367 he was chosen Bishop of Salamis in Cyprus. But he still wore the monastic habit, and continued to govern his monastery in Palestine, which he visited from time to time. He sometimes relaxed his austerities in favor of hospitality, preferring charity to abstinence. No one surpassed him in tenderness and charity to the poor. The veneration which all men had for his sanctity exempted him from. the persecution of the Arian Emperor Valens.

        In 376 he undertook a journey to Antioch in the hope of converting Vitalis, the Apollinarist bishop; and in 382 he accompanied St. Paulinus from that city to Rome, where they lodged at the house of St. Paula; our Saint in return entertained her afterward ten days in Cyprus in 385. The very name of an error in faith, or the shadow of danger of evil, affrighted him, and the Saint fell into some mistakes on certain occasions, which proceeded from zeal and simplicity.

        He was on his way back to Salamis, after a short absence, when he died in 403, having been bishop thirty-six years.
