Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Luke 6:12-19.

Jesus departed to the mountain to pray, and he spent the night in prayer to God.
When day came, he called his disciples to himself, and from them he chose Twelve, whom he also named apostles:
Simon, whom he named Peter, and his brother Andrew, James, John, Philip, Bartholomew,
Matthew, Thomas, James the son of Alphaeus, Simon who was called a Zealot,
and Judas the son of James, and Judas Iscariot, who became a traitor.
And he came down with them and stood on a stretch of level ground. A great crowd of his disciples and a large number of the people from all Judea and Jerusalem and the coastal region of Tyre and Sidon
came to hear him and to be healed of their diseases; and even those who were tormented by unclean spirits were cured.
Everyone in the crowd sought to touch him because power came forth from him and healed them all.

Commentary of the day

Saint Augustine (354-430),

Bishop of Hippo (North Africa) and Doctor of the Church
Letter to Proba on Prayer, 9-10 (trans. Breviary 29th Monday)

“He spent the night in communion with God.”

  When the apostle Paul says: “Present your needs to God,” (Phil 4:6) this does not mean that we make them known to God since he knows them even before they come into being; it means, rather, that we will know whether our prayers are of value by our patience and perseverance before God and not by prattling before men… Thus, it is not forbidden or useless to pray for a long time when this is possible, that is to say, when it does not prevent other good and necessary occupations; and moreover, when we are doing so, we must always pray with desire, as I have said.

For if a person prays for a long time, it is not prayer that is babbled (Mt 6:7), as some people think. Talking abundantly is one thing, loving for a long time is another. For it is written that the Lord himself “spent the night in prayer” and that he “prayed with all the greater intensity.” (Lk 22:44) He wanted to give us an example by praying for us in time, who, with his Father, hears our prayers in eternity.
  It is said that the monks in Egypt say frequent but very short prayers that are thrown like arrows, so as to prevent that the vigilant attention needed by those who pray become relaxed and dissolute by being prolonged too much… Prayer does not have to include many words, but much supplication; thus, it can be prolonged with fervent attention… To pray a lot means to knock for a long time and with all our heart at the door of him to whom we are praying (Lk 11:5f.). For prayer consists more in groaning and tears than in discourse and words.

Saint of the day

St. Eleutherius,

Abbot († c. 585)

Image: N/A

SAINT ELEUTHERIUS
Abbot
(† c. 585)

        Wonderful simplicity and spirit of compunction were the distinguishing virtues of this holy man. He was chosen abbot of St. Mark’s near Spoleto, and favored by God with the gift of miracles. A child who was possessed by the devil, being delivered by being educated in his monastery, the abbot said one day: “Since the child is among the servants of God, the devil dares not approach him.” These words seemed to savor of vanity, and thereupon the devil again entered and tormented the child. The abbot humbly confessed his fault, and fasted and prayed with his whole community till the child was again freed from the tyranny of the fiend.

     St. Gregory the Great not being able to fast on Easter-eve on account of extreme weakness, engaged this Saint to go with him to the church of St. Andrew’s and put up his prayers to God for his health, that he might join the faithful in that solemn practice of penance. Eleutherius prayed with many tears, and the Pope, coming out of the church, found his breast suddenly strengthened, so that he was enabled to perform the fast as he desired. St. Eleutherius raised a dead man to life.

        Resigning his abbacy, he died in St. Andrew’s monastery in Rome, about the year 585.
