Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ

 

“Follow me, and let the dead bury their dead.”

1 stdas0280

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Matthew 8:18-22.

When Jesus saw a crowd around him, he gave orders to cross to the other side.
A scribe approached and said to him, “Teacher, I will follow you wherever you go.”
Jesus answered him, “Foxes have dens and birds of the sky have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to rest his head.”
Another of (his) disciples said to him, “Lord, let me go first and bury my father.”
But Jesus answered him, “Follow me, and let the dead bury their dead.”

Commentary of the day

Blessed Charles de Foucauld (1858-1916),

hermit and missionary in the Sahara
Retreat in Nazareth

“The Son of Man has nowhere to lay his head.”

      So here, oh my Lord Jesus, is that divine poverty! How necessary it is that you teach me this! You loved it so much!… During your mortal life, you made it your faithful companion. You left it as an inheritance to your saints, to all who want to follow you, to all who want to be your disciples. You taught it by the example you gave throughout your entire life. Through your words, you glorified this poverty, you beatified it, proclaimed it as necessary. You chose poor workers to be your parents. You were born in a cave that served as a stable. You were poor in the work you did when you were a child. The first ones to adore you were shepherds. At your presentation in the Temple, the gift of the poor was offered. You lived as a poor worker in Nazareth for thirty years, where I have the good fortune to walk, where I have the joy … of picking up manure.

      Then, during your public life, you lived from alms in the midst of poor fishermen whom you had taken to be your companions. “With no place to lay your head.” On Calvary, you were stripped of your clothing, your only possession, and the soldiers gambled among themselves. You died naked, and you were buried by means of alms by strangers. “How blest are the poor!” (Mt 5:3)

      My Lord Jesus, how fast will the person become poor who, loving you with all his heart, cannot bear to be richer than his Beloved!

Saints of the day

St. Cyril of Alexandria,

Bishop and Doctor of the Church (+ 444)

SAINT CYRIL OF ALEXANDRIA
Bishop and Doctor of the Church
(+444)

        Cyril of Alexandria, nephew of Theophilus, Bishop of Alexandria, gave evidences even as a youth of outstanding intelligence. After Theophilus’ death he was called to that very See, became a sincere example to his flock, and grew famous as a most excellent pastor.

        He showed marked assiduousness in the preservation of the Catholic faith against Nestorius, who asserted that Jesus Christ was born of the Virgin Mary only as a man and not as God, and tha divinity was conferred on him for his merits.

        After Cyril tried in vain to correct Nestorius, he denounced him to Pope St. Celestine. With this Pontiff’s delegated authority, Cyril attended some sessions of the Council of Ephesus at which the Nestorian heresy was absolutely condemned, Nestorius excommunicated, and removed from his See, and the Catholic dogma of one divine person in Christ and the divine maternity of the glorious Virgin Mary asserted.

        Solicitous for the faith alone, he suffered a great deal on account of it, carried out the greatest labors for God’s Church, produced a great many writings, and died a holy death in the year 444, in the thirty-second year of his episcopacy.

Saints of the day

St. Lasdilas,

King (1041-1095)

SAINT LADISLAS
King
(1041-1095)

        Ladislas the First, son of Bela, King of Hungary, was born in 1041. By the pertinacious importunity of the people he was compelled, much against his own inclination, to ascend the throne, in 1080.

        He restored the good laws and discipline which St. Stephen had established, and which seem to have been obliterated by the confusion of the times. Chastity, meekness, gravity, charity, and piety were from his infancy the distinguishing parts of his character; avarice and ambition were his sovereign aversion, so perfectly had the maxims of the Gospel extinguished in him all propensity to those base passions.

        His life in the palace was most austere; he was frugal and abstemious, but most liberal to the Church and the poor. Vanity, pleasure, or idle amusements had no share in his actions or time, because all his moments were consecrated to the exercises of religion and the duties of his station, in which he had only the divine will in view, and sought only God’s greater honor.

        He watched over a strict and impartial administration of justice, was generous and merciful to his enemies, and vigorous in the defence of his country and the Church. He drove the Huns out of his territories, and vanquished the Poles, Russians, and Tartars.

        He was preparing to command, as general-in-chief, the great expedition of the Christians against the Saracens for the recovery of the Holy Land, when God called him to Himself, on the 30th of July, 1095.
