“Whoever receives one child such as this in my name, receives me;

and whoever receives me, receives not me but the one who sent me.”

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Mark 9:30-37.

Jesus and his disciples left from there and began a journey through Galilee, but he did not wish anyone to know about it.
He was teaching his disciples and telling them, “The Son of Man is to be handed over to men and they will kill him, and three days after his death he will rise.”
But they did not understand the saying, and they were afraid to question him.
They came to Capernaum and, once inside the house, he began to ask them, “What were you arguing about on the way?”
But they remained silent. They had been discussing among themselves on the way who was the greatest.
Then he sat down, called the Twelve, and said to them, “If anyone wishes to be first, he shall be the last of all and the servant of all.”
Taking a child he placed it in their midst, and putting his arms around it he said to them,
Whoever receives one child such as this in my name, receives me; and whoever receives me, receives not me but the one who sent me.

Commentary of the day

Aphrahat (?-c.345),

monk and Bishop near Mosul
Demonstrations, no.6 (SC 349)

Follow him who is the last of all and servant of all

My friend, let us take on the likeness of him who gives us life. Although he was rich, he made himself poor. Although he was exalted, he humbled his greatness. Although he dwelt in the heights, he had nowhere to lay his head. Although he is to come on the clouds, he mounted an ass to enter Jerusalem. Although he is God and Son of God, he bears the likeness of a slave.

He who is rest for every effort has been worn out by the difficulty of the way. He who is the spring that quenches thirst was thirsty and asked for water to drink. He who is the repletion that satisfies our hunger was hungry when he fasted in the desert to be tempted. He who is the unsleeping watchman fell asleep and lay down in the boat in the middle of the sea. He who is served in his Father’s tent allowed himself to be served at the hands of men. He who is the doctor of all the sick had his hands pierced by nails. He whose mouth spoke prudence was given gall to drink. He who did no wrong nor harmed anyone has been struck with blows and bore insult. He who gives life to all the dead surrendered himself to the death of the cross.

Our Lifegiver himself has given proof of all this humility; let us humble ourselves, my friends.

Saint of the day

St. Joachina de Vedruna de Mas

Saint Joachina de Vedruna
(16 April 1783 – 28 August 1854)

St. Joachina was a Catalonian nun, founder of the Carmelite Sisters of the Charity. She was born into a noble family. As a young girl, Joachina believed she wanted to be a nun, but she married Theodore de Mas, a man from a royal family in Barcelona, Spain in 1799, when she was only 16 years old. They had nine children before Theodore was killed when Napoleon invaded Spain. When husband died in 1816 and she moved with her children to their estate in Vic. Here, she began her charitable activities with the sick and young women. Her spiritual director, the Capuchin Esteban de Olot, suggested she establish an apostolic congregation devoted to education and charity. The order cared for the sick, the poor, and anyone in need of an education. They built houses for the homeless and started schools in poor areas. The bishop of Vic, Pablo Jesús Corcuera, told her the institute should be of Carmelite inspiration. The same bishop wrote the rule on 6 February 1826, and 20 days later she and another 8 women professed their vows. Within the next few years, Joaquina’s Carmelites founded several houses in Catalonia. During the First Carlist War (a civil war in Spain from 1833 to 1839), she had to flee from Spain because she had founded a hospital in the Carlist town of Berga that was threatened by the fighting. As a result, she went to Roussillon, France, where she stayed from 1836 to 1842.

Her apostolic congregation was definitively approved in 1850. In spite of serious challenges posed by civil war and secular opposition, the institute she founded soon spread throughout Catalonia. Thereafter, communities were established throughout Spain and Hispanic America. Eventually, she was forced to resign as superior of her order due to sickness; although she died during a cholera epidemic in Barcelona, she slowly succumbed to paralysis over the final four years of her life. By the time of her death in 1854 at the age of 71, Joaquina was known and admired for her high degree of prayer, deep trust in God and selfless charity. She was beatified by the Roman Catholic Church in 1940 and was canonized in 1959.
