Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ 

“You cannot serve God and mammon.”

JESUS TECHING ABOUT

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Luke 16:1-13.

Jesus said to his disciples, “A rich man had a steward who was reported to him for squandering his property.
He summoned him and said, ‘What is this I hear about you? Prepare a full account of your stewardship, because you can no longer be my steward.’
The steward said to himself, ‘What shall I do, now that my master is taking the position of steward away from me? I am not strong enough to dig and I am ashamed to beg.
I know what I shall do so that, when I am removed from the stewardship, they may welcome me into their homes.’
He called in his master’s debtors one by one. To the first he said, ‘How much do you owe my master?’
He replied, ‘One hundred measures of olive oil.’ He said to him, ‘Here is your promissory note. Sit down and quickly write one for fifty.’
Then to another he said, ‘And you, how much do you owe?’ He replied, ‘One hundred kors of wheat.’ He said to him, ‘Here is your promissory note; write one for eighty.’
And the master commended that dishonest steward for acting prudently. “For the children of this world are more prudent in dealing with their own generation than are the children of light.”
I tell you, make friends for yourselves with dishonest wealth, so that when it fails, you will be welcomed into eternal dwellings.
The person who is trustworthy in very small matters is also trustworthy in great ones; and the person who is dishonest in very small matters is also dishonest in great ones.
If, therefore, you are not trustworthy with dishonest wealth, who will trust you with true wealth?
If you are not trustworthy with what belongs to another, who will give you what is yours?
No servant can serve two masters. He will either hate one and love the other, or be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.”

Saints of the day

St. Thomas of Villanova,

Bishop (1488-1555)

San_Tommaso_da_Villanova_N

SAINT THOMAS OF VILLANOVA
Bishop
(1488-1555)

        Saint Thomas, the glory of the Spanish Church in the sixteenth century, was born in 1488. A thirst for the science of the Saints led him to enter the house of the Austin Friars at Salamanca. Charles V. listened to him an oracle, and appointed him Archbishop of Valencia. On being led to his throne in church, he pushed the silken cushions aside, and with tears kissed the ground.

        His first visit was to the prison; the sum with which the chapter presented him for his palace was devoted to the public hospital. As a child he had given his meal to the poor, and two thirds of his episcopal revenues were now annually spent in alms. He daily fed five hundred needy persons, brought up himself the orphans of the city, and sheltered the neglected foundlings with a mother’s care.

        During his eleven years’ episcopate not one poor maiden was married without an alms from the Saint. Spurred by his example, the rich and the selfish became liberal and generous; and when, on the Nativity of Our Lady, 1555, St. Thomas came to die, he was well-nigh the only poor man in his see.

Saints of the day

St. Joseph of Cupertino

(1603-1663)

San_Giuseppe_da_Copertino_B

SAINT JOSEPH OF CUPERTINO
Priest
(1603-1663)

       Joseph of Cupertino, born of pious parents, as a youth was noted for his chastity. He was admitted among the Friars Minor Conventual at the convent of Grotella, first as a lay brother because of his lack of formal education, then, by divine intervention, as a cleric.

        After being ordained a priest, he afflicted his body with hairshirts, disciplines and all kinds of austerities. His spirit in truth he fed constantly with the nourishment of holy prayer, whence it came about that he was called by God to the highest level of contemplation.

        Notable for his obedience and for his practice of poverty, he cultivated chastity especially, which he preserved intact despite violent temptations.

He honored the Virgin Mary with a wonderful love and shone with great charity toward the poor.

        So great was his humility that, considering himself a great sinner, he earnestly besought God to remove from him his wonderful gifts.

        By order of his superiors and of the sacred Inquisition, he traversed many regions.

        Finally, at Osimo in Picenum, in the sixty-first year of his age, he went to heaven.
