Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Matthew 25:31-46.

Jesus said to his disciples: “When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit upon his glorious throne,
and all the nations will be assembled before him. And he will separate them one from another, as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats.
He will place the sheep on his right and the goats on his left.
Then the king will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father. Inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.
For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, a stranger and you welcomed me,
naked and you clothed me, ill and you cared for me, in prison and you visited me.’
Then the righteous will answer him and say, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink?
When did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you?
When did we see you ill or in prison, and visit you?’
And the king will say to them in reply, ‘Amen, I say to you, whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me.’
Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you accursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels.
For I was hungry and you gave me no food, I was thirsty and you gave me no drink,
a stranger and you gave me no welcome, naked and you gave me no clothing, ill and in prison, and you did not care for me.’
Then they will answer and say, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or ill or in prison, and not minister to your needs?’
He will answer them, ‘Amen, I say to you, what you did not do for one of these least ones, you did not do for me.’
And these will go off to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life.”

Commentary of the day

Symeon the New Theologian

(c.949-1022),

Greek monk, saint of the Orthodox churches

Practical and theological precepts, § 129, 126, 131 (trans. E. Kadloubovsky & G.E.H. Palmer)

“You did it for me”

      If someone gives ninety-nine poor men but reviles, chastises or sends away another one who remains empty handed, to whom do you think he does this? Of course to Christ himself who has said, who continues to say, who never ceases saying and will one day say again: “Whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me”?… For in all these it is still him whom we feed in every beggar. In the same way, if someone has provided for all the bodily needs of the poor on one day, but, being able to do so on the next day, neglects some of his brethren and leaves them to die of hunger, thirst and cold, then he has neglected and left die him who said: “Inasmuch as you have done it unto the least of my brethren, you have done it to me”…

        If our Lord was pleased to assume the likeness of every poor man and compared himself to every poor man it was in order that none who believe in him should exalt himself over his brother… but should take the poor man in and honor him, and be ready to exhaust all his means in helping him, just as our Lord Jesus Christ exhausted his blood for our salvation… All this may appear too hard to people and they may think it right to say to themselves: “Who can strictly follow all this, satisfying and feeding everyone and leaving no one unsatisfied?” Let them listen to Saint Paul who says clearly: “The love of Christ urges us on, because we are convinced that one has died for all; therefore all have died” (2Cor 5:14).

Saint of the day

St. Colette,

Virgin

(+ 1447)

SAINT COLETTE
Virgin
(+ 1447)

        After a holy childhood, Colette joined a society of devout women called the Beguines; but not finding their state sufficiently austere, she entered the Third Order of St. Francis, and lived in a hut near her parish church of Corbie in Picardy.

        Here she had passed four years of extraordinary penance when St. Francis, in a vision, bade her undertake the reform of her Order, then much relaxed. Armed with due authority, she established her reform throughout a large part of Europe, and, in spite of the most violent opposition, founded seventeen convents of the strict observance.

By the same wonderful prudence she assisted in healing the great schism which then afflicted. the Church. The Fathers in council at Constance were in doubt how to deal with the three claimants to the tiara-John XXIII., Benedict XIII., and Gregory XII. At this crisis Colette, together with St. Vincent Ferrer, wrote to the Fathers to depose Benedict XIII., who alone refused his consent to a new election. This was done, and Martin V. was elected, to the great good of the Church.

        Colette equally assisted the Council of Basle by her advice and prayers; and when, later, God revealed to her the spirit ‘ of revolt that was rising, she warned the bishops and legates to retire from the council.

        St. Colette never ceased to pray for the Church, while the devils, in turn, never ceased to assault her. They swarmed round her as hideous insects, buzzing and stinging her tender skin. They brought into her cell the decaying corpses of public criminals, and assuming themselves monstrous forms struck her savage blows; or they would appear in the most seductive guise, and tempt her by many deceits to sin. St. Colette once complained to Our Lord that the demons prevented her from praying. “Cease, then,” said the devil to her, “your prayers to the great Master of the Church, and we will cease to torment you; for you torment us more by your prayers than we do you.” Yet the virgin of Christ triumphed alike over their threats and their allurements, and said she would count that day the unhappiest of her life in which she suffered nothing for her God.

        She died March 6, 1447, in a transport of intercession for sinners and the Church.
