“Believe me that I am in the Father and the Father is in me,

or else, believe because of the works themselves.

EASTER THURSDAY untitled

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint John 14:1-12.

Jesus said to his disciples: “Do not let your hearts be troubled. You have faith in God; have faith also in me.
In my Father’s house there are many dwelling places. If there were not, would I have told you that I am going to prepare a place for you?
And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back again and take you to myself, so that where I am you also may be.
Where (I) am going you know the way.”
Thomas said to him, “Master, we do not know where you are going; how can we know the way?”
Jesus said to him, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”
If you know me, then you will also know my Father. From now on you do know him and have seen him.”
Philip said to him, “Master, show us the Father, and that will be enough for us.”
Jesus said to him, “Have I been with you for so long a time and you still do not know me, Philip? Whoever has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’?
Do you not believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in me? The words that I speak to you I do not speak on my own. The Father who dwells in me is doing his works.
Believe me that I am in the Father and the Father is in me, or else, believe because of the works themselves.
Amen, amen, I say to you, whoever believes in me will do the works that I do, and will do greater ones than these, because I am going to the Father.

Commentary of the day

Saint Bernard

(1091-1153),

Cistercian monk and doctor of the Church
Treatise on the Degrees of Humility, Chapter 1-2

“You know the way to the place where I am going.”

“I am the way, the truth and the life.” The way is humility, which leads to truth. Humility is sorrow; truth is the fruit of sorrow. You will say: How do I know that he is talking about humility, since he just says: “I am the way”? He himself gives you the answer when he adds: “Learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart.” (Mt 11:29) He thus offers himself as an example of humility and gentleness. If you imitate him, you will not walk in darkness, but you will have the light of life (Jn 8:12). What is the light of life other than the truth? It enlightens everyone who comes into this world (Jn 1:9); it shows him/her the right way…

I see the way – it is humility; I desire the fruit – it is truth. But what should I do if the journey is too difficult for me and I cannot get to the goal, which I desire? Listen to his answer: “I am the way, that is to say, the viaticum which will sustain you throughout this journey.” To those who take the wrong road and who do not know the way, he cries out: “It is I who am the way.” To those who doubt and do not believe: “It is I who am the truth.” To those who are already ascending but who are tired: “It is I who am the life.” And listen to this: “I thank you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things – this secret truth – from the wise and the intelligent, that is to say, from the proud, and have revealed them to infants, that is to say, to the humble.” (Lk 10:21)…

Listen to the truth that is told to those who seek it: “Come to me, you who desire me, and eat your fill of my fruits.” (Sir 24:19) And again: “Come to me, all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.” (Mt 11:28) Come, he says. Where? To me, the truth. By which road? By the way of humility.

Saint of the day

Saint Matthias,

Apostle –

Feast

ST. MATTHIAS
Apostle

After our blessed Lord’s Ascension his disciples met together, with Mary his mother and the eleven apostles, in an upper room at Jerusalem.

        The little company numbered no more than one hundred and twenty souls. They were waiting for the promised coining of the Holy Spirit, and they persevered in prayer. Meanwhile there was a solemn act to be performed on the part of the Church, which could not be postponed. The place of the fallen Judas must be filled up, that the elect number of the apostles might be complete.

St. Peter, therefore, as Vicar of Christ, arose to announce the divine decree. That which the Holy Spirit had spoken by the mouth of David concerning Judas, he said, must be fulfilled. Of him it had been written, “His bishopric let another take.” A choice, therefore, was to be made of one among those who had been their companions from the beginning, who could bear witness to the Resurrection of Jesus.

        Two were named of equal merit, Joseph called Barsabas, and Matthias. Then, after praying to God, who knows the hearts of all men, to show which of these he had chosen, they cast lots, and the lot fell upon Matthias, who was forthwith numbered with the apostles.

        It is recorded of the Saint, thus wonderfully elected to so high a vocation, that he was above all remarkable for his mortification of the flesh. It was thus that he made his election sure.
