Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ 

That one is like a person building a house,

who dug deeply and laid the foundation on rock

1 HOUSE ON THE ROCK stdas0059

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Luke 6:43-49.

Jesus said to his disciples : “A good tree does not bear rotten fruit, nor does a rotten tree bear good fruit.
For every tree is known by its own fruit. For people do not pick figs from thornbushes, nor do they gather grapes from brambles.
A good person out of the store of goodness in his heart produces good, but an evil person out of a store of evil produces evil; for from the fullness of the heart the mouth speaks.
Why do you call me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ but not do what I command?
I will show you what someone is like who comes to me, listens to my words, and acts on them.
That one is like a person building a house, who dug deeply and laid the foundation on rock; when the flood came, the river burst against that house but could not shake it because it had been well built.
But the one who listens and does not act is like a person who built a house on the ground without a foundation. When the river burst against it, it collapsed at once and was completely destroyed.”

Commentary of the day

Saint Augustine (354-430),

Bishop of Hippo (North Africa) and Doctor of the Church
Sermon 179

Building on the rock

       Brothers, the apostle Saint James spoke to people who were zealous for the word of God, saying: “Act on this word. If all you do is listen to it, you are deceiving yourselves.” (Jas 1:22) You would neither be fooling the Author of the word nor the one announcing it; you would be fooling yourselves… And it would be very useless if the preacher announced the word of God outside and didn’t first of all listen to it within himself in order to put it into practice…

       Who puts the word into practice interiorly? The person who keeps himself from evil desire. Who observes it exteriorly? The one who is “sharing… (his) bread with the hungry.” (Isa 58:7) Our neighbor sees what we do, but God alone is witness to why we are doing it. So “act on this word. If all you do is listen to it, you are deceiving yourselves.” You will neither deceive God nor his minister. I cannot read your hearts but God, who plumbs the heart, sees what human beings cannot see. He sees your zeal in listening, your thoughts, your resolutions, the progress you make through his grace, your attentiveness in prayer, the requests you make of him so as to obtain what you are lacking, and your thanksgiving so as to thank him for his blessings…

       Think upon this, brothers! If it is praiseworthy to listen to the word, how much more is it praiseworthy to put it into practice. If you don’t listen to it, you are living in negligence and you won’t build anything. If you listen to it without putting it into practice, you will build nothing but ruins. Where this is concerned, the Lord gave us a good comparison: “Anyone who hears my words and puts them into practice is like the wise man who built his house on rock.” To listen and to put into practice means building on the rock… To listen without putting into practice means building on sand. To refuse even to listen means that nothing is built at all!

Saint of the day

St. Nicholas of Tolentino († 1310)

San_Nicola_da_Tolentino_I

ST. NICHOLAS OF TOLENTINO
(† 1310)

        Born in answer to the prayer of a holy mother, and vowed before his birth to the service of God, Nicholas never lost his baptismal innocence. His austerities were conspicuous even in the austere Order -the Hermits of St. Augustine- to which he belonged, and to the remonstrances which were made by his superiors he only replied, “How can I be said to fast, while every morning at the altar I receive my God?”

        He conceived an ardent charity for the Holy Souls, so near and yet so far from their Saviour; and often after his Mass it was revealed to him that the souls for whom he had offered the Holy Sacrifice had been admitted to the presence of God.

   Amidst his loving labors for God and man, he was haunted by fear of his own sinfulness. “The heavens,” said he, “are not pure in the sight of Him Whom I serve; how then shall I, a sinful man, stand before Him?” As he pondered on these things, Mary, the Queen of all Saints, appeared before him. “Fear not, Nicholas,” she said, “all is well with you: my Son bears you in his heart, and I am your protection.” Then his soul was at rest; and he heard, we are told, the songs which the angels sing in the presence of their Lord.

        He died September 10, 1310.
