Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ

“Stretch out your hand.”

STRECTH OUT YOUR HAND wjpas0591

 

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Mark 3:1-6.

Jesus entered the synagogue. There was a man there who had a withered hand.
They watched him closely to see if he would cure him on the sabbath so that they might accuse him.
He said to the man with the withered hand, “Come up here before us.”
Then he said to them, “Is it lawful to do good on the sabbath rather than to do evil, to save life rather than to destroy it?” But they remained silent.
Looking around at them with anger and grieved at their hardness of heart, he said to the man, “Stretch out your hand.” He stretched it out and his hand was restored.
The Pharisees went out and immediately took counsel with the Herodians against him to put him to death.

Saint Jaime Hilario
Martyr
(1898-1937)

        St. Jaime Hilario, was a Spanish member of the Institute of the Brothers of the Christian Schools. He was born Manuel Barbal Cosan on January 2, 1898 in Enviny, a small town in the foothills of the Pyrenees in Catalonia (in northern Spain). Known for his serious nature, he was only 12 years old when, with the blessing of his devout and hardworking parents, he entered the minor seminary of the diocese of La Seu de Urgel. He soon developed an ear infection and he was forced to abandon his studies for the priesthood.

   In 1917, convinced that God was calling him, he joined the noviciate of the La Salle Brothers in Irún. He took the names Jaime Hilario. After sixteen years in various teaching assignments, his increasing deafness forced him to abandon teaching. He moved to Cambrils, near Tarragona and worked in the garden of the Order’s training house there.

        On the outbreak of the Spanish civil war on July 18, 1936 he took refuge in nearby Mollerosa on his way to visit his family. But he was arrested as a religious and jailed. In December he was transferred to Tarragona for trial. He was held on board a prison ship with several other brothers. On January 15, 1937 he was given a summary trial. Though he could have been freed by claiming to be only a gardener, he insisted on his identity as a religious. He was condemned to death on no grounds beyond his religious status.

        He was shot in a wood known as the Mount of Olives next to Tarragona cemetery on January 18, 1937. His last words to his executioners were “My friends, to die for Christ is to reign.” When two volleys failed to meet their mark, the soldiers dropped their rifles and fled in panic. The commander, shouting a furious oath, fired five shots to the temple and the victim fell at his feet.

        He was the first of 97 Christian Brothers killed in Catalonia during the Spanish civil war. He was beatified on April 29, 1990 and canonized on November 21, 1999 by Pope John Paul II.
