Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Luke 6:20-26.

Raising his eyes toward his disciples Jesus said: “Blessed are you who are poor, for the kingdom of God is yours.
Blessed are you who are now hungry, for you will be satisfied. Blessed are you who are now weeping, for you will laugh.
Blessed are you when people hate you, and when they exclude and insult you, and denounce your name as evil on account of the Son of Man.
Rejoice and leap for joy on that day! Behold, your reward will be great in heaven. For their ancestors treated the prophets in the same way.
But woe to you who are rich, for you have received your consolation.
But woe to you who are filled now, for you will be hungry. Woe to you who laugh now, for you will grieve and weep.
Woe to you when all speak well of you, for their ancestors treated the false prophets in this way.”

Commentary of the day

Saint Gregory of Nyssa (c.335-395),

monk and Bishop
The Beatitudes, 1

“Blessed are you who are poor”

As almost all men have a natural tendency to pride, the Lord begins the beatitudes by casting aside the original sin of self-sufficiency and by counseling our imitation of him who is truly blessed, the genuinely voluntary Poor man… so we might become like him in a voluntary poverty that is according to our means, so as to share his blessedness, his happiness. “Have among you the same attitude that is also yours in Christ Jesus. Who, though he was in the form of God, did not regard equality with God something to be grasped. Rather, he emptied himself, taking the form of a slave,” (Phil 2,5-7).

What could be more wretched for God than to take the form of a slave? What lowlier for the King of the universe than to share our human nature? The King of kings, the Lord of lords, the Judge of the world pays taxes to Caesar (1Tim 6,17; Heb 12,23; Mk 12,17)! Creation’s lord embraces this world, enters a cave, finds no place in an inn and takes refuge in a stable in the company of irrational beasts. He who is pure and spotless takes upon himself the stains of human nature and, after sharing all our poverty, goes so far as to experience our death. Consider the excessiveness of his voluntary poverty! Life tastes death; the Judge is dragged before the court; the Master of the lives of us all submits to a magistrate; the King of the heavenly powers does not escape the hands of torturers. This is the pattern, says the apostle Paul, against which his humility is measured.

Saint of the day

St. Cloud,

Priest (522-c.560)

San_Clodoaldo-o_Cloud-A

SAINT CLOUD
Priest
(522- c. 560)

        St. Cloud is the first and most illustrious Saint among the princes of the royal family of the first race in France. He was son of Chlodomir, King of Orleans, the eldest son of St. Clotilda, and was born in 522. He was scarce three years old when his father was killed in Burgundy; but his grandmother Clotilda brought up him and his two brothers at Paris, and loved them extremely.

        Their ambitious uncles divided the kingdom of Orleans between them, and stabbed with their own hands two of their nephews. Cloud, by a special providence, was saved from the massacre, and, renouncing the world, devoted himself to the service of God in a monastic state. After a time he put himself under the discipline of St. Severinus, a holy recluse who lived near Paris, from whose hands he received the monastic habit.

        Wishing to live unknown to the world, he withdrew secretly into Provence, but his hermitage being made public, he returned to Paris, and was received with the greatest joy imaginable. At the earnest request of the people, he was ordained priest by Eusebius, Bishop of Paris, in 551, and served that Church some time in the functions of the sacred ministry.

        He afterward retired to St. Cloud, two leagues below Paris, where he built a monastery. Here he assembled many pious men, who fled out of the world for fear of losing their souls in it. St. Cloud was regarded by them as their superior, and he animated them to all virtue both by word and example. He was indefatigable in instructing and exhorting the people of the neighboring country, and piously ended his days about the year 560.
