Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ

“You cannot serve God and mammon.”

1 The_worship_of_Mammon

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Luke 16:9-15.

Jesus said to his disciples: “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.”
The Pharisees, who loved money, heard all these things and sneered at him.
And he said to them, “You justify yourselves in the sight of others, but God knows your hearts; for what is of human esteem is an abomination in the sight of God.”

Commentary of the day

Saint Gregory Nazianzen (330-390),

Bishop and Doctor of the Church
Homily 14, On love for the poor, 24-25 ; PL 35, 887 (trans. Breviary for the 1st Monday in Lent, rev.)

“If you are not trustworthy with dishonest wealth, who will trust you with true wealth?”

Brethren and friends, let us by no means be wicked stewards of God’s gift to us. If we are, we will have to listen to Saint Peter saying: “Be ashamed, you who hold back what belongs to another, take as an example the justice of God, and no one will be poor.” While others suffer poverty, let us not labour to hoard and pile up money, for if we do, holy Amos will threaten us sharply in these words: “Hear this, you who say, When will the new moon be over, that we may sell; and the sabbath, that we may open up our treasures?” (8,5)…

Let us imitate the first and most important law of God who sends his rain on the just and on sinners and makes the sun. shine on all men equally (Mt 5,45). God opens up the earth, the springs, the streams and the woods to all who live in the world. He gives the air to the birds, the water to the fish and the basic needs of life abundantly to all, without restriction or limitation or preference. These basic goods are common to all, provided by God generously and with nothmg lacking. He has done this so that creatures of the same nature may receive equal gifts and that he may show us how rich is his kindness.

Saint of the day

St. Bertilla,

Abbess (7th century)

SAINT BERTILLA
Abbess
(7th century)

        St. Bertilla was born of one of the most illustrious families in the territory of Soissons (France), in the reign of Dagobert I. As she grew up she learned perfectly to despise the world, and earnestly desired to renounce it. Not daring to tell this to her parents, she first consulted St. Ouen, by whom she was encouraged in her resolution.

        The Saint’s parents were then made acquainted with her desire, which God inclined them not to oppose. They conducted her to Jouarre, a great monastery in Brie, four leagues from Meaux, where she was received with great joy and trained up in the strictest practice of monastic perfection.

        By her perfect submission to all her sisters she seemed every one’s servant, and acquitted herself with such great charity and edification that she was chosen prioress to assist the abbess in her administration.

        About the year 646 she was appointed first abbess of the abbey of Chelles, which she governed for forty-six years with equal vigor and discretion, until she closed her penitential life in 692.
