Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Mark 10:13-16.

People were bringing children to Jesus that he might touch them, but the disciples rebuked them.
When Jesus saw this he became indignant and said to them, “Let the children come to me; do not prevent them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.
Amen, I say to you, whoever does not accept the kingdom of God like a child will not enter it.”
Then he embraced them and blessed them, placing his hands on them.

Commentary of the day

Hermas

(2nd century)

The Shepherd, parable 9, 24.29 (trans. E.J. Goodspeed, rev.; cf SC 53, p.341)

“Let the children comes to me… for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these”

      The Shepherd showed me a mountain on which there were luxuriant green plants; the whole mountain was flourishing and all kinds of cattle and wild birds were feeding on the plants on this mountain. He said to me: “Believers from this place have always been sincere and without guile, blessed and holding nothing against one another but always rejoicing in the servants of God. Clad in the holy spirit of young virgins, always feeling compassion for all, they have provided for the needs of their fellows out of the sweat of their own brows. So the Lord, seeing their sincerity and perfect innocence, prospered them in the labors of their hands and showed them favor in all that they did… All those of you who so act, continue to be such, and your descendants will never be botted out…”

The he showed me a very beautiful mountain, all white: “Here believers are like veritable babes into whose minds no evil comes. They do not know what wickedness is but have always continued in innocence. Such people, therefore, will undoubtedly live in the Kingdom of God for they have not by any act profaned God’s commands but have continued in innocence all the days of their lives in the same attitude of mind. All those of you, then, who will continue like babes, with no wickedness, will be more glorious than those who have been mentioned before, for all babes are glorious in the sight of God and are foremost in his sight. So blessed are you who have put off wickedness from yourselves and put on innocence; you will be the first of all to live to God.”

Saint of the day

Patriarch of Constantinople

(+ 806)

SAINT TARASIUS
Patriarch of Constantinople
(+ 806)

         Tarasius was born at Constantinople about the middle of the eighth century, of a noble family. His mother Eucratia, brought him up in the practice of the most eminent virtues. By his talents and virtue he gained the esteem of all, and was raised to the greatest honors of the empire, being made consul, and afterwards first secretary of state to the Emperor Constantine and the Empress Irene, his mother. In the midst of the court, and in its highest honors, he led a life like that of a religious man.

        Paul, Patriarch of Constantinople, the third of that name, though he had conformed in some respects to the then, reigning heresy, had several good qualities, and was not only beloved by the people for his charity to the poor, but highly esteemed by the whole court for his great prudence. Touched with remorse, he quitted the patriarchal see, and put on a religious habit in the monastery of Florus in Constantinople. Tarasius was chosen to succeed him by the unanimous consent of the court, clergy, and people. Finding it in vain to oppose his election, he. declared that he could not in conscience accept of the government of a; see which had been cut off from the Catholic communion, except on condition that a general council should be called to compose the disputes which divided the Church at that time in relation to holy images.

        This being agreed to, he was solemnly declared patriarch, and consecrated soon after, on Christmas Day. The council was opened on the 1st of August, in the Church of the Apostles at Constantinople, in 786; but, being disturbed by the violences of the Iconoclasts, it adjourned, and met again the year following in the Church of St. Sophia at Nice. The council, having declared the sense of the Church in relation to the matter in debate, which was found to be the allowing to holy pictures and images a relative honor, was closed with the usual acclamations and prayers for the prosperity of the emperor and empress; after which, synodal letters were sent to all the churches, and in particular to the Pope, who approved the council.

        The life of this holy patriarch was a model of perfection to his clergy and people. His table contained barely the necessaries of life; he allowed himself very little time for sleep, being always up the first and last in his family. Reading and prayer filled all his leisure hours. The emperor having become enamoured of Theodota, a maid of honor to his wife, the Empress Mary, was resolved to divorce the latter. He used all his efforts to gain the patriarch over to his desires, but St. Tarasius resolutely refused to countenance the iniquity.

         The holy man gave up his soul to God in peace on the 25th of February, 806, after having sat twenty-one years and two months.
