Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ 

“John performed no sign,

but everything John said about this man was true.”

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint John 10:31-42.

The Jews picked up rocks to stone Jesus.
Jesus answered them, “I have shown you many good works from my Father. For which of these are you trying to stone me?”
The Jews answered him, “We are not stoning you for a good work but for blasphemy. You, a man, are making yourself God.”
Jesus answered them, “Is it not written in your law, ‘I said, “You are gods”‘?
If it calls them gods to whom the word of God came, and scripture cannot be set aside,
can you say that the one whom the Father has consecrated and sent into the world blasphemes because I said, ‘I am the Son of God’?
If I do not perform my Father’s works, do not believe me;
but if I perform them, even if you do not believe me, believe the works, so that you may realize (and understand) that the Father is in me and I am in the Father.”
(Then) they tried again to arrest him; but he escaped from their power.
He went back across the Jordan to the place where John first baptized, and there he remained.
Many came to him and said, “John performed no sign, but everything John said about this man was true.”
And many there began to believe in him.

Commentary of the day

Melito of Sardis

(?-c.195),

Bishop
Paschal homily, 57-67 (cf SC 123)

The mystery of the Lord’s Passover

The paschal mystery is fulfilled in the Lord’s body. But he had already foretold his own sufferings in the patriarchs, prophets and all his people; he had confirmed them with his seal in the Law and the prophets. This unheard of and magnificent future had been prepared long before; long prefigured, the Lord’s mystery has been made visible today, for both old and new is the mystery of the Lord…

Do you wish to see, then, the mystery of the Lord? Consider Abel, put to death like him; Isaac, bound like him; Joseph, sold like him; Moses, publicly displayed like him; David, hunted down like him; the prophets who, like him, were mistreated in the name of Christ. Lastly, consider the lamb sacrificed in the land of Egypt, which struck Egypt and saved Israel by its blood.

The mystery of the Lord was also announced through the voice of the prophets. Moses said to the people: “You will live in constant suspense and live in dread both night and day, never sure of your existence” (Dt 28:66). And David said: “Why do the nations rage and the peoples utter folly? The kings of the earth rise up and the princes conspire together against the Lord and his Anointed” (Ps 2:1-2). And Jeremiah: “I, like a trusting lamb led to slaughter had not realized that they were hatching plots against me, saying: ‘…Let us cut him off from the land of the living so that his name will be spoken of no more’” (Jer 11:19). And Isaiah: “Like a lamb led to the slaughter or a sheep before its shearers, he was silent and opened not his mouth… Who would have thought of his destiny/” (Is 53:7).

Many other events have been foretold by numerous prophets regarding the Paschal mystery that is Christ… It was he who delivered us from service to the world as from the land of Egypt and who snatched us from slavery to the devil as from the hand of Pharaoh.

Saint of the day

Bl. Sr Josaphata Hordashevska

(1869-1919)

Blessed Sr Josaphata Hordashevska
Religious
(1869-1919)

        The blessed Sr Josaphata Michaelina Hordashevska was the first member of the Sisters Servant of Mary Immaculate. In 1869, Michaelina Hordashevska was born in Lviv.

        At the age of 18, she decided to consecrate her life to God in a contemplative monastery of the Order of St Basil the Great, then the only Eastern-rite woman’s congregation. Then the Basilians decided to establish a woman’s congregation that focused on the active life, Michaelina was elected to be the first leader.

        When she agreed, she was sent to the Felician sisters to give her the experience of active paramonastic life. Michaelina took the name “Josaphata”, in honour of the Ukrainian martyr St Josaphat Kuntsevych. She was the first superior of the young sisters there, training them in the spirit and charisma of the Sisters Servants: »serve your people where the need is greatest”.

        At the age of 49 on April 7, 1919, she died amidst terrible suffering from bone cancer.

        She is buried in the generalate of the Sisters Servants in Rome. She was beatified by John Paul II on June 27, 2001.
