Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ

Jesus said to his disciples:

“Now I am going to the one who sent me

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint John 16:5-11.

Jesus said to his disciples: “Now I am going to the one who sent me, and not one of you asks me, ‘Where are you going?’
But because I told you this, grief has filled your hearts.
But I tell you the truth, it is better for you that I go. For if I do not go, the Advocate will not come to you. But if I go, I will send him to you.
And when he comes he will convict the world in regard to sin and righteousness and condemnation:
sin, because they do not believe in me;
righteousness, because I am going to the Father and you will no longer see me;
condemnation, because the ruler of this world has been condemned.”

Commentary of the day

Saint Cyril of Jerusalem

(313-350),

Bishop of Jerusalem, Doctor of the Church

Baptismal catecheses no.16 (trans. Breviary)

“It is the Spirit that gives life” (2Cor 3,6)

     “The water that I shall give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life” (Jn 4,14). This is a new kind of water, living, welling up, welling up for those who are worthy. Why did he call the grace of the Spirit water? Because all things depend on water. Water produces herbs and living things. Water comes down form heaven as rain: water always comes down in the same form, yet its effects are manifold – thus it takes one form in the palm tree, another in the vine… For the rain does not change, coming down now as one thing and now as another, but it adapts itself to the nature of the things which receive it and it becomes what is appropriate to each.

Similarly with the Holy Spirit. He is one and of one nature and indivisible, but “he apportions his grace to each as he wills” (cf. 1Cor 12,11). When the dry tree is watered it brings forth shoots. So, too, the soul in sin: when through penance it is made worthy of the grace of the Holy Spirit, it bears the fruits of justice. Though the Spirit is one in nature, yet by the will of God and in the name of Christ he brings about multiple effects of virtue.

He uses the tongue of one person for wisdom, he illumines the soul of another by prophecy, to another he imparts the power of driving out devils, to another the gift of interpreting the sacred scriptures; he strengthens the self-control of one, teaches another the nature of alsmgiving, another to fast and mortify himself, another to despise the things of the body; he prepares another for martyrdom. He acts differently in different people while himself remaining unchanged, as it is written: “To each is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good” (1Cor 12,7).

Saint of the day

St. Desiderius,

Bishop & Martyr

(+ 608)

SAINT DESIDERIUS
Bishop and Martyr
(+ 608)

        Desiderius was born at Autun, Gaul, and also known as Didier.  He became bishop of Vienne. His enforcement of strict clerical  discipline, his attachs on simony, and his denunciation of the  immorality of Queen Brunhildis’ court made him many enemies.

        He was denounced by the queen for paganism to Pope Gregory  the Great who completely exonerated him, but was banished by a synod  controlled by Brunhildis.

        Desiderius returned four years later but was murdered by  three followers of King Theodoric, whom he had publicly censured.
