Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ

“John is his name,”

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Luke 1:57-66.

When the time arrived for Elizabeth to have her child she gave birth to a son.
Her neighbors and relatives heard that the Lord had shown his great mercy toward her, and they rejoiced with her.
When they came on the eighth day to circumcise the child, they were going to call him Zechariah after his father,
but his mother said in reply, “No. He will be called John.”
But they answered her, “There is no one among your relatives who has this name.”
So they made signs, asking his father what he wished him to be called.
He asked for a tablet and wrote, “John is his name,” and all were amazed.
Immediately his mouth was opened, his tongue freed, and he spoke blessing God.
Then fear came upon all their neighbors, and all these matters were discussed throughout the hill country of Judea.
All who heard these things took them to heart, saying, “What, then, will this child be?” For surely the hand of the Lord was with him.

The Great O Antiphons: “O Emmanuel”

The Great O Antiphons
December 23: “O Emmanuel”

These Great “O Antiphons” at the Magnificat were first used by the Church in the 8th and 9th centuries.

They are said in order, based on various titles for the Christ and are scripturally-based short prayers for the 17th to the 23rd of December.

In these “O Antiphons” the Church expresses her deep longing for the coming of the Messiah.

 

Christ, the hope of all Nations, who await   his appearing
(See Isaiah 7:14; 8:8; Matthew 1:23; Haggai 2:7)

O Emmanuel,

Rex et legifer noster,

expectatio gentium,

et Salvator earum:

veni ad salvandum nos,

Domine, Deus noster.

O Emmanuel,

our King and Lawgiver,

the one awaited by the gentiles,

and their Savior:

come to save us,

Lord our God.

SAINT JOHN of Kanty
Priest
(1390-1473)

        St. John was born at Kenty in Poland in 1390, and studied at Cracow with great ability, industry, and success, while his modesty and virtue drew all hearts to him.

        He was for a short time in charge of a parish; but he shrank from the burden of responsibility, and returned to his life of professor at Cracow. There for many years he lived a life of unobtrusive virtue, self-denial, and charity.

        His love for the Holy See led him often in pilgrimage to Rome, on foot and alone, and his devotion to the Passion drew him once to Jerusalem, where he hoped to win a martyr’s crown by preaching to the Turks.

        He died in 1473.

Saints of the day

St. Servulus

(† c. 590)

SAINT SERVULUS
(† c. 590)

        Servulus was a beggar, and had been so afflicted with palsy from his infancy that he was never able to stand, sit upright, lift his hand to his mouth, or turn himself from one side to another. His mother and brother carried him into the porch of St. Clement’s Church at Rome, where he lived on the alms of those that passed by.

        He used to entreat devout persons to read the Holy Scriptures to him, which he heard with such attention as to learn them by heart. His time he consecrated by assiduously singing hymns of praise and thanksgiving to God.

        After several years thus spent, his distemper having seized his vitals, he felt his end was drawing nigh. In his last moments he desired the poor and pilgrims, who had often shared in his charity, to sing sacred hymns and psalms for him. While he joined his voice with theirs, he on a sudden cried out: “Silence! do you not hear the sweet melody and praise which resound in the heavens?” Soon after he spoke these words he expired, and his soul was carried by angels into everlasting bliss, about the year 590.
