Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ 

“A mother-in-law against her daughter-in-law and

a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law.”

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Luke 12:49-53.

Jesus said to his disciples: “I have come to set the earth on fire, and how I wish it were already blazing!
There is a baptism with which I must be baptized, and how great is my anguish until it is accomplished!
Do you think that I have come to establish peace on the earth? No, I tell you, but rather division.
From now on a household of five will be divided, three against two and two against three;
a father will be divided against his son and a son against his father, a mother against her daughter and a daughter against her mother, a mother-in-law against her daughter-in-law and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law.”

Commentary of the day

Saint Ambrose (c.340-397),

Bishop of Milan and Doctor of the Church
Commentary on the Gospel of Luke, 7, 134 (cf. SC 52, p. 55f.)

“Everyone who has given up houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother… for the sake of my name, will receive a hundred times more ” (Mt 19,29)

In almost every passage of Scripture the spiritual meaning plays an important part. But in this passage especially we must look for spiritual depth within the thread of its meaning… How is it that he himself can say: “Peace I leave with you, my own peace I give you” (Jn 14,27) if he has come to divide fathers from their sons, sons from their fathers, breaking their connection? How can we be called “cursed if you dishonor your father” (Dt 27,16) yet fervent if we abandon him?

If we understand that religion comes first and filial devotion second then we will understand this question to be clarified: for we have to pass on to the human after the divine. For if we have duties towards our parents, how much more to the Father of our parents to whom we owe thanksgiving for our parents?… He doesn’t say, then, that we must give up those we love but that we must prefer God before all else. Besides, do we not find in another book: “Whoever loves father or mother more than me is not worthy of me” (Mt 10,37). What is forbidden is not to love your parents but to prefer them to God. For our blood relations are among God’s blessings and no one is to love the good things they have received more than the God who conserves the blessings he has given.

Saints of the day

St. Paul of the Cross,

Priest (1693-1775)

SAINT PAUL OF THE CROSS
Priest
(1693-1775)

        The eighty-one years of this Saint’s life were modelled on the Passion of Jesus Christ. In his childhood, when praying in church, a heavy bench fell on his foot, but the boy took no notice of the bleeding wound, and spoke of it as “a rose sent from God.” A few years later, the vision of a scourge with “love” written on its lashes assured him that his thirst for penance would be satisfied. In the hope of dying for the faith, he enlisted in a crusade against the Turks; but a voice from the Tabernacle warned him that he was to serve Christ alone, and that he should found a congregation in his honor.

        At the command of his bishop he began while a layman to preach the Passion, and a series of crosses tried the reality of his vocation. All his first companions, save his brother, deserted him; the Sovereign Pontiff refused him an audience; and it was only after a delay of seventeen years that the Papal approbation was obtained, and the first house of the Passionists was opened on Monte Argentario, the spot which Our Lady had pointed out.

        St. Paul chose as the badge of his Order a heart with three nails, in memory of the sufferings of Jesus, but for himself he invented a more secret and durable sign. Moved by the same holy impulse as Blessed Henry Suso, St. Jane Frances, and other Saints, he branded on his side the Holy Name, and its characters were found there after death.

        His heart beat with a supernatural palpitation, which was especially vehement on Fridays, and the heat at times was so intense as to scorch his shirt in the region of his heart. Through fifty years of incessant bodily pain, and amidst all his trials, Paul read the love of Jesus everywhere, and would cry out to the flowers and grass, “Oh! be quiet, be quiet,” as if they were reproaching him with ingratitude.

        He died whilst the Passion was being read to him, and so passed with Jesus from the cross to glory.

Saints of the day

St. Maria Bertilla Boscardin,

Virgin (1888-1922)

santa_maria_bertilla_boscardin

SAINT MARIA BERTILLA BOSCARDIN
Virgin
(1888-1922)

        Anna Francesca Boscardin was born at Brendola, Veneto in 1888. She lived in fear of her father, a poor, violent and jealous farmer who was often drunk. As a child she could attend school irregularly as she was needed to help at home and in the fields. She showed few talents and was often the target of jokes. She acquired the nickname of “the goose”, and all her life this nickname will remain with her both at home and in the convent.

        In 1904 she joined the Sisters of Saint Dorothy, Daughters of the Sacred Heart at Vicenza, taking the name “Maria Bertilla”. She was then sent to Treviso to learn nursing at the municipal hospital there, which was under the direction of her order.

        She began working in a hospital with children suffering from diphtheria. There the young nun seemed to find her true vocation: nursing very ill and disturbed children. Later, when the hospital was taken over by the military in World War I, Sister Maria Bertilla cared for patients amidst the threat of constant air raids and bombings.

        She died in 1922 after suffering for many years from a painful tumor.

        Her reputation for simplicity and devoted, caring hard work had left a deep impression on those who knew her. She was canonized in 1961.
