“Be quiet! Come out of him!”

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Luke 4:31-37.

Jesus then went down to Capernaum, a town of Galilee. He taught them on the sabbath,
and they were astonished at his teaching because he spoke with authority.
In the synagogue there was a man with the spirit of an unclean demon, and he cried out in a loud voice,
Ha! What have you to do with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are–the Holy One of God!
Jesus rebuked him and said, “Be quiet! Come out of him!” Then the demon threw the man down in front of them and came out of him without doing him any harm.
They were all amazed and said to one another, “What is there about his word? For with authority and power he commands the unclean spirits, and they come out.”
And news of him spread everywhere in the surrounding region.

Commentary of the day

A Greek 4th century homily
For the Easter Octave; wrongly attributed to Saint John Chrysostom (trans. SC 146, p.77f. rev.)

“What have you to do with us, Jesus of Nazareth?”

     I’m not presenting you with a fabrication of unheard of novelty but the very same thing the prophets wrote about beforehand in the Old Testament. Haven’t you heard Moses’ cry: “The Lord will raise up for you among your brothers a prophet like myself”? (Dt 18:18). Haven’t you heard Isaiah proclaim: “Behold, a virgin shall conceive and bear a son”? (Is 7:14)… Haven’t you heard David declare: “He will descend like rain on the fleece” (Ps 71:6)… Believe the prophets, then; understand the reality they show forth and you will find Jesus the Nazarene (Mt 2:23). Behold, I have shown you the way: let him who wishes follow it! See, I have lit the torch: come out of the darkness!

Jesus the Nazarene: I speak his name and country… I am not saying: Jesus, who spread out the vault of heaven, who set alight the rays of the sun, who traced the constellations in the sky, who lit the lamp of the moon, who appointed its time to the day, who assigned its course to the night, who established dry land on the waters, who checked the sea by his word… Jesus the Nazarene: he of whom Nathanael exclaimed in his doubt: “Can anything good come out of Nazareth?” “Jesus the Nazarene,” the apostle Peter said, “the man whose mission God made known by accomplishing mighty deeds, wonders and signs through him”… Yes! “Jesus the Nazarene, the man whom God himself has commended to you” (Acts 2,22).

Saints of the day

St. Fiaker,

Anchorite († c. 670)


(† c. 670)

        St. Fiaker was nobly born in Ireland, and had his education under the care of a bishop of eminent sanctity who was, according to some, Conan, Bishop of Soder or the Western Islands. Looking upon all worldly advantages as dross, he left his country and friends in the flower of his age, and with certain pious companions sailed over to France, in quest of some solitude in which he might devote himself to God, unknown to the rest of the world.

Divine Providence conducted him to St. Faro, who was the Bishop of Meaux, and eminent for sanctity. When St. Fiaker addressed himself to him, the prelate, charmed with the marks of extraordinary virtue and abilities which he discovered in this stranger, gave him a solitary dwelling in a forest called Breuil which was his own patrimony, two leagues from Meaux. In this place the holy anchorite cleared the ground of trees and briers, made himself a cell, with a small garden, and built an oratory in honor of the Blessed Virgin, in which he spent a great part of the days and nights in devout prayer. He tilled his garden and labored with his own hands for his subsistence.

The life he led was most austere, and only necessity or charity ever interrupted his exercises of prayer and heavenly contemplation. Many resorted to him for advice, and the poor for relief. But, following an inviolable rule among the Trish monks, he never suffered any woman to enter the enclosure of his hermitage. St. Chillen, or Kilian, an Irishman of high birth, on his return from Rome, visited St. Fiaker, who was his kinsman, and having passed some time under his discipline, was directed by his advice, with the authority of the bishops, to preach in that and the neighboring dioceses. This commission he executed with admirable sanctity and fruit.

        St. Fiaker died about the year 670.

Saints of the day

St. Jeanne Jugan


St. Jeanne Jugan

Foundress of Religious Community

Jeanne Jugan was born on October 25, 1792 in a small fishing village of Brittany, France. She was the sixth of the eight children of Joseph and Marie Jugan. When she was three and a half, her father was lost at sea. Her mother struggled for years to keep the family together in their one room earthen-floored cottage. When Jeanne was about 16, she became the kitchen maid of the Viscountess de la Choue, a kind-hearted Christian woman, who took her on visits to the sick and the poor on and around her estate. Jeanne learned by example, the meaning of truly Christian charity and a refinement of manners not customary among those of the peasant class. When she was about 25, Jeanne took a job in the crowded hospital in the town of Saint Servan. After six years of devoted toil at the hospital, she was so worn out that she had to leave this work. She went to work for a good Christian woman named Mlle. Lecoq. Daily, the two women spent hours in prayer, and they assisted at Mass. They also instructed the town’s children in their catechism. They also cared for the poor and other unfortunates until the elderly woman died. In 1837, the forty-five year old Jeanne and a seventy-two year old woman named Francoise Aubert rented part of a humble cottage. They were joined by Virginie Tredaniel, a seventeen year old orphan and the three formed a community of prayer. They taught catechism and assisted the poor. Whatever they had left over from their earnings, they gave to the poor. At age 47, with the approval of Francoise and Virginie, Jeanne turned her attention to the most pitiful of the poor-abandoned old ladies. In 1839, she brought home a blind widow named Anne Chauvin. Jeanne gave up her own bed to provide sleeping quarters for their guest. Henceforth, she was to share intimately in the sufferings of the poor, even physically, considering herself one of them. This characteristic is expressed in the name that eventually developed for Jeanne’s charitable work: The Little Sisters of the Poor. As the number of guests grew, so also did her little community. Jeanne wrote a somple rule for them and herself. Putting aside personal pride, theLittle Sisters daily went out door to door asking for food, clothing and money. In 1879 Jeanne was eighty-seven. At this time the community she had founded had 2,400 Little Sisters and had spread across Europe and across the Ocean. Toward the end of August, she was given the Last Sacraments. Her last words were, “O Mary, my dear Mother, come to me. You know I love you and how I long to see You!” After her peaceful death, Jeanne was buried in the graveyard at the motherhouse. She was beatified in Rome on October 3, 1982.
