Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ

“Many that are first will be last, and (the) last will be first.”

jes_w_disc_7-17

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Mark 10:28-31.

Peter began to say to Jesus, “We have given up everything and followed you.”
Jesus said, “Amen, I say to you, there is no one who has given up house or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or lands for my sake and for the sake of the gospel
who will not receive a hundred times more now in this present age: houses and brothers and sisters and mothers and children and lands, with persecutions, and eternal life in the age to come.”
But many that are first will be last, and (the) last will be first.”

Commentary of the day

Saint Francis de Sales

(1567-1622),

Bishop of Geneva and Doctor of the Church

Introduction to the devout life, Part three, ch. 15 (trans. Allan Ross)

“A hundred times more now in this present age”

The possessions which we have are not our own: God has given them to us to cultivate and he wishes us to render them fruitful and profitable… Always deprive yourself, therefore, of some part of your means, giving them to the poor with a willing heart…  It is true that God will return it to you, not only in the next world but also in this, for there is nothing which makes a person prosper in temporal matters so much as almsgiving. But till such time as God shall repay it, you will always be impoverished to that extent. Oh! how holy and rich is the impoverishment which is caused by almsgiving.

Love the poor and poverty, for by this love you will become truly poor, since, as Scripture says: “We become like the things that we love” (cf. Hos 9:10). Love makes them that love equal to one another: “Who is weak, and I am not weak?” says St Paul (2Cor 11:29). He might have said: “Who is poor, with whom I am not poor?” For love made him become such as those whom he loved. If, then, you love the poor, you will be truly participating in their poverty and poor like them. Now, if you love the poor, be often among them; be pleased to see them in your house, and to visit them in theirs; associate willingly with them; be glad that they are near you in the churches, in the streets and elsewhere. Be poor in speech with them, speaking to them as their equal; but be rich in deed, giving them of your goods as one that possesses more abundantly.

Will you do even more?… Become a servant of the poor; go to serve them… with your own hands… and at your own expense. This service has more glory in it than a throne.

Blessed Daniel Brottier
Priest
(1876-1936)

        Blessed Daniel Brottier was a French Spiritan born in France in 1876 and ordained priest 1899. His zeal for spreading the Gospel beyond the classroom or the confines of France made him to join the Spiritan Congregation.

        He was sent to Senegal, West Africa. After eight years there, his health suffered and he went back to France where he helped raise funds for the construction of a new cathedral in Senegal.

        At the outbreak of World War I Daniel became a volunteer chaplain. He attributed his survival on the front lines to the intercession of Saint Therese of Lisieux, and built a chapel for her at Auteuil when she was canonized.

        After the war he established a project for orphans and abandoned children “the Orphan Apprentices of Auteuil” in the suburb of Paris.

        He gave up his soul to God on the 28th of February, 1936 and was beatified only 48 years later in 1984 by Pope John Paul II.

Sts. Romanus & Lupicinus

SAINTS ROMANUS and LUPICINUS
Abbots
(5th century)

        Romanus at thirty-five years of age left his relatives and spent some time in the monastery of Ainay at Lyons, at the great church at the conflux of the Saône and Rhone which the faithful had built over the ashes of the famous martyrs of that city; for their bodies being burned by the pagans, their ashes were thrown into the Rhone, but a great part of them was gathered by the Christians and deposited in this place.

        Romanus a short time after retired into the forests of Mount Jura, between France and Switzerland, and fixed his abode at a place called Condate, at the conflux of the rivers Bienne and Aliere, where he found a spot of ground fit for culture, and some trees which furnished him with a kind of wild fruit. Here he spent his time in praying, reading, and laboring for his subsistence.

        Lupicinus, his brother, came to him some time after in company with others, who were followed by several more, drawn by the fame of the virtue and miracles of these two Saints. Their numbers increasing, they built several monasteries, and a nunnery called La Beaume, which no men were allowed ever to enter, and where St. Romanus chose his burial-place.

The brothers governed the monks jointly and in great harmony, though Lupicinus was the more inclined to severity of the two. Lupicinus used no other bed than a chair or a hard board; never touched wine, and would scarcely ever suffer a drop either of oil or milk to be poured on his pottage. In summer his subsistence for many years was only hard bread moistened in cold water, so that he could eat it with a spoon. His tunic was made of various skins of beasts sewn together,. with a cowl; he used wooden shoes, and wore no stockings unless when he was obliged to go out of the monastery.

        St. Romanus died about the year 460, and St. Lupicinus survived him almost twenty years.
