Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ

 

“I say to you, everyone who looks at a woman with lust

has already committed adultery with her in his heart.”

1 come stdas0541

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Matthew 5:27-32.

Jesus said to his disciples: “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall not commit adultery.’
But I say to you, everyone who looks at a woman with lust has already committed adultery with her in his heart.
If your right eye causes you to sin, tear it out and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one of your members than to have your whole body thrown into Gehenna.
And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one of your members than to have your whole body go into Gehenna.
It was also said, ‘Whoever divorces his wife must give her a bill of divorce.’
But I say to you, whoever divorces his wife (unless the marriage is unlawful) causes her to commit adultery, and whoever marries a divorced woman commits adultery.”

Commentary of the day

The Imitation of Christ, spiritual treatise of the 15th century
Book II, 4

“If your eyes are good, your body will be filled with light” (Mt 6:22)

 

There must be simplicity in one’s intention and purity in one’s affection.

Simplicity seeks God; purity finds him and savors him.

No good work will be difficult for you if you are interiorly free of all disordered affection.

If you want only what God wants and what is useful for your neighbor, you will enjoy interior freedom.

If your heart were upright then every creature would be for you a mirror of life and a book full of holy instruction.

There is no creature so small and so base that it does not show some image of God’s goodness.

If you had enough innocence and purity within you, you would see everything without hindrance. A pure heart penetrates heaven and hell.

Each person judges what is outside according to what he is within himself.

If there is any joy in the world, the pure heart possesses it.

Saint of the day

St. Margaret of Scotland,

Queen (+ 1093)

father bill st margaret of scottland, 8/3/05, 5:41 PM, 8C, 5772x7548 (1067+2737), 150%, Repro 1.8 v2, 1/30 s, R95.5, G90.7, B117.0

SAINT MARGARET OF SCOTLAND
Queen
(+ 1093)

        St. Margaret’s name signifies “pearl”; “a fitting name,” says Theodoric, her confessor and her first biographer, “for one such as she.” Her soul was like a precious pearl. A life spent amidst the luxury of a royal court never dimmed its luster, or stole it away from Him who had bought it with His blood. She was the granddaughter of an English king; and in 1070 she became the bride of Malcolm, and reigned as Queen of Scotland till her death in 1093.

        How did she become a Saint in a position where sanctity is so difficult? First, she burned with zeal for the house of God. She built churches and monasteries; she busied herself in making vestments; she could not rest till she saw the laws of God and His Church observed throughout her realm. Next, amidst a thousand cares, she found time to converse with God-ordering her piety with such sweetness and discretion that she won her husband to sanctity like her own. He used to rise with her at night for prayer; he loved to kiss the holy books she used, and sometimes he would steal them away, and bring them back to his wife covered with jewels.

Lastly, with virtues so great, she wept constantly over her sins, and begged her confessor to correct her faults. St. Margaret did not neglect her duties in the world because she was not of it. Never was there a better mother. She spared no pains in the education of her eight children, and their sanctity was the fruit of her prudence and her zeal. Never was there a better queen. She was the most trusted counselor of her husband, and she labored for the material improvement of the country.   

        But, in the midst of the world’s pleasures, she sighed for the better country, and accepted death as a release. On her death-bed she received the news that her husband and her eldest son were slain in battle. She thanked God, who had sent this last affliction as a penance for her sins. After receiving Holy Viaticum, she was repeating the prayer from the Missal, “O Lord Jesus Christ, Who by Thy death didst give life to the world, deliver me.” At the words “deliver me,” says her biographer, she took her departure to Christ, the Author of true liberty.
