Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ

Jesus said to his disciples:

“I am the true vine, and my Father is the vine grower.

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint John 15:1-8.

Jesus said to his disciples: “I am the true vine, and my Father is the vine grower.
He takes away every branch in me that does not bear fruit, and everyone that does he prunes so that it bears more fruit.
You are already pruned because of the word that I spoke to you.
Remain in me, as I remain in you. Just as a branch cannot bear fruit on its own unless it remains on the vine, so neither can you unless you remain in me.
I am the vine, you are the branches. Whoever remains in me and I in him will bear much fruit, because without me you can do nothing.
Anyone who does not remain in me will be thrown out like a branch and wither; people will gather them and throw them into a fire and they will be burned.
If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask for whatever you want and it will be done for you.
By this is my Father glorified, that you bear much fruit and become my disciples.”

Commentary of the day

Saint Teresa of Calcutta

(1910-1997),

Founder of the Missionary Sisters of Charity
Something Beautiful for God (copyright The Mother Teresa Committee, 1971)

“Remain in me, as I remain in you”

It is not possible to engage in the direct apostolate without being a soul of prayer. We must be aware of oneness with Christ as he was aware of oneness with the Father. Our activity is truly apostolic only in so far as we permit him to work in us and through us, with his power, with his desire, with his love. We must become holy, not because we want to feel holy, but because Christ must be able to live his life fully in us. We are to be all love, all faith, all purity, for the sake of the poor we serve. And once we have learned to seek God and his will, our contacts with the poor will become the means of great sanctity to ourselves and to others.

Love to pray – feel often during the day the need for prayer, and take trouble to pray, Prayer enlarges the heart until it is capable of containing God’s gift of himself. “Ask and seek” (Lk 11,9), and your heart will grow big enough to receive him and keep him as your own.

Saint of the day

St. Joachina de Vedruna de Mas

Saint Joachina de Vedruna
(16 April 1783 – 28 August 1854)

St. Joachina was a Catalonian nun, founder of the Carmelite Sisters of the Charity. She was born into a noble family. As a young girl, Joachina believed she wanted to be a nun, but she married Theodore de Mas, a man from a royal family in Barcelona, Spain in 1799, when she was only 16 years old. They had nine children before Theodore was killed when Napoleon invaded Spain. When husband died in 1816 and she moved with her children to their estate in Vic. Here, she began her charitable activities with the sick and young women. Her spiritual director, the Capuchin Esteban de Olot, suggested she establish an apostolic congregation devoted to education and charity. The order cared for the sick, the poor, and anyone in need of an education. They built houses for the homeless and started schools in poor areas. The bishop of Vic, Pablo Jesús Corcuera, told her the institute should be of Carmelite inspiration. The same bishop wrote the rule on 6 February 1826, and 20 days later she and another 8 women professed their vows. Within the next few years, Joaquina’s Carmelites founded several houses in Catalonia. During the First Carlist War (a civil war in Spain from 1833 to 1839), she had to flee from Spain because she had founded a hospital in the Carlist town of Berga that was threatened by the fighting. As a result, she went to Roussillon, France, where she stayed from 1836 to 1842.

Her apostolic congregation was definitively approved in 1850. In spite of serious challenges posed by civil war and secular opposition, the institute she founded soon spread throughout Catalonia. Thereafter, communities were established throughout Spain and Hispanic America. Eventually, she was forced to resign as superior of her order due to sickness; although she died during a cholera epidemic in Barcelona, she slowly succumbed to paralysis over the final four years of her life. By the time of her death in 1854 at the age of 71, Joaquina was known and admired for her high degree of prayer, deep trust in God and selfless charity. She was beatified by the Roman Catholic Church in 1940 and was canonized in 1959.
