Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ

“When you pray, say:

Father,hallowed be your name, your kingdom come.
Give us each day our daily bread”

1 stdas0670

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Luke 11:1-13.

Jesus was praying in a certain place, and when he had finished, one of his disciples said to him, “Lord, teach us to pray just as John taught his disciples.”
He said to them, “When you pray, say: Father, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come.
Give us each day our daily bread
and forgive us our sins for we ourselves forgive everyone in debt to us, and do not subject us to the final test.”
And he said to them, “Suppose one of you has a friend to whom he goes at midnight and says, ‘Friend, lend me three loaves of bread,
for a friend of mine has arrived at my house from a journey and I have nothing to offer him,’
and he says in reply from within, ‘Do not bother me; the door has already been locked and my children and I are already in bed. I cannot get up to give you anything.’
I tell you, if he does not get up to give him the loaves because of their friendship, he will get up to give him whatever he needs because of his persistence.
And I tell you, ask and you will receive; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.
For everyone who asks, receives; and the one who seeks, finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.
What father among you would hand his son a snake when he asks for a fish?
Or hand him a scorpion when he asks for an egg?
If you then, who are wicked, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will the Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him?”

Commentary of the day

Saint Catherine of Siena (1347-1380),

Dominican tertiary, Doctor of the Church, co-patron of Europe
The Dialogue, 134

“Ask and you will receive”

      Your truth told us to cry out, and we should be answered; to knock, and it would be opened to us; to beg, and it would be given to us. Oh! Eternal Father, your servants do cry out to your mercy; and so, answer us. I know well that mercy belongs to your very being; therefore you cannot deny it or refuse it to those who ask for it. Your servants knock at the door of your truth, because in the truth of your only-begotten Son (Jn 14:6) they know the ineffable love which you have for mankind. Therefore the fire of your love cannot refuse to open to those who knock with perseverance.

      Open therefore, unlock, and break the hardened hearts of men, whom you created – if not for the sake of those who do not knock, at least on account of your infinite goodness, and through your love of your servants who knock at you for their sakes. Grant the prayer of those, Eternal Father who, as you see, stand at the door of your truth and pray… Open the door of your inestimable love which you have given us through the door of your Word. I know indeed that you open even before we can knock, for it is with the love which yourself have given to your servants that they knock and cry to you, seeking your honor and the salvation of souls. Give them then the bread of life, that is to say, the fruit of the blood of your only-begotten Son.

Saints of the day

St. Sharbel Makhluf,

Priest (1828-1898)

San_Jerbello-Sarbel_Charbel-Giuseppe_Makhluf_F

SAINT SHARBEL MAKHLUF
Priest
(1828-1898)

        Joseph Zaroun  Makhluf was born in a small mountain village of Lebanon. Raised by an uncle who opposed the boy’s youthful piety, he snuck away at age 23 to join the Baladite monastery of Saint Maron at Annaya where he took the name Charbel in memory of a 2nd century martyr. He was ordained in 1858.   

        Devoted to the Blessed Virgin Mary, he spent the last twenty-three years of his life as a hermit. Despite temptations to wealth and comfort, Sharbel lived as a model monk on the bare minimums of everything. He gained a reputation for holiness, and was much sought for counsel and blessing. He had a great personal devotion to the Blessed Sacrament, and was known to levitate during his prayers. He was briefly paralyzed just before his death.

        Several post-mortem miracles were attributed to him, including periods in 1927 and 1950 when a bloody “sweat” flowed from his corpse. His tomb has become a place of pilgrimage for Lebanese and non-Lebanese, Christian and non-Christian alike.

        Sharbel taught the value of poverty, self-sacrifice, and prayer by the way he lived. He was beatified in 1965 and canonized in 9 October 1977 by Pope Paul VI.

        July 24th is the feast-day for St. Sharbel Makhlouf on the Universal Church. The Maronite Church celebrates him on the 3rd Sunday of July and on December 24th, the day he went to heaven.

Saints of the day

St. Christina,

Virgin and Martyr († c. 300)

Santa_Cristina_di_Bolsena_F

SAINT CHRISTINA
Virgin and Martyr
(† c. 300)

        St. Christina was the daughter of a rich and powerful magistrate named Urbain. Her father, who was deep in the practices of heathenism, had a number of golden idols, which our Saint destroyed, and distributed the pieces among the poor. Infuriated by this act, Urbain became the persecutor of his daughter; he had her whipped with rods and then thrown into a dungeon. Christina remained unshaken in her faith.

    Her tormentor then had her body torn by iron hooks, and fastened her to a rack beneath which a fire was kindled. But God watched over his servant and turned the flames upon the lookers-on. Christina was next seized, a heavy stone tied about her neck, and she was thrown into the lake of Bolsena, but she was saved by an angel, and outlived her father, who died of spite.

        Later, this martyr suffered the most inhuman torments under the judge who succeeded her father, and finally was thrown into a burning furnace, where she remained, unhurt, for five days. By the power of Christ she overcame the serpents among which she was thrown; then her tongue was cut out, and afterwards, being pierced with arrows, she gained the martyr’s crown at Tyro, a city which formerly stood on an island in the lake of Bolsena in Italy, but was long since swallowed up by the waters.

        Her relics are now at Palermo in Sicily.
