Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ 

 

“Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth,

where moth and decay destroy, and thieves break in and steal.”

CHRIST TEACHING

 

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Matthew 6:19-23.

Jesus said to his disciples: “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and decay destroy, and thieves break in and steal.
But store up treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor decay destroys, nor thieves break in and steal.
For where your treasure is, there also will your heart be.
The lamp of the body is the eye. If your eye is sound, your whole body will be filled with light;
but if your eye is bad, your whole body will be in darkness. And if the light in you is darkness, how great will the darkness be.”

Saints of the day

St. Herve,

Abbot, (6th century)

Sant_Erveo-Herve

Saint Herve of Brittany
Abbot
(6th century)

        Saint Herve, sometimes called Harvey or Hervues, is venerated throughout Brittany but we have few reliable particulars on him–his life was not written until the late medieval period. All we really know is that he was a hermit in Brittany, where he is still highly venerated.

        Herve was the son of the bard Hyvarnion, and was born blind. His father died when Herve was an infant.  He was raised by his uncles because his mother became an anchoress.

        He lived for a while as a hermit and bard, and then joined a monastic school at Plouvien which had been founded by his uncle. Abbot of Plouvien, he built an abbey at Lanhourneau.

        He was venerated as a miracle worker and bard. He is reported to have a special ministry of healing animals, and to have a domesticated wolf as a companion.

        He is invoked against eye trouble, and he is depicted with a wolf.

Saints of the day

St. Avitus,

Abbot

SAINT AVITUS
Abbot

        St. Avitus was a native of Orleans, and, retiring into Auvergne, took the monastic habit, together with St. Calais, in the abbey of Menat, at that time very small, though afterward enriched by Queen Brunehault, and by St. Boner, Bishop of Clermont.

        The two Saints soon after returned to Miscy, a famous abbey situated a league and a half below Orleans. It was founded toward the end of the reign of Clovis I. by St. Euspicius, a holy priest, honored on the 14th of June, and his nephew St. Maximin or Mesnim, whose name this monastery, which is now of the Cistercian Order, bears.

Many call St. Maximin the first abbot, others St. Euspicius the first, St. Maximin the second, and St. Avitus the third. But our Saint and St. Calais made not a long stay at Miscy, though St. Maximin gave them a gracious reception. In quest of a closer retirement, St. Avitus, who had succeeded St. Maximin, soon after resigned the abbacy, and with St. Calais lived a recluse in the territory now called Dunois, on the frontiers of La Perche.

        Others joining them, St. Calais retired into a forest in Maine, and King Clotaire built a church and monastery for St. Avitus and his companions. This is at present a Benedictine nunnery, called St. Avy of Chateaudun, and is situated on the Loire, at the foot of the hill on which the town of Chateaudun is built, in the diocese of Chartres.

          Three famous monks, Leobin, afterwards Bishop of Chartres, Euphronius, and Rusticus, attended our Saint to his happy death, which happened about the year 530. His body was carried to Orleans, and buried with great pomp in that city.
