Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ

“Everything that the Father has is mine;

for this reason I told you that he will take from what is mine and declare it to you.”

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint John 16:12-15.

Jesus said to his disciples: “I have much more to tell you, but you cannot bear it now.
But when he comes, the Spirit of truth, he will guide you to all truth. He will not speak on his own, but he will speak what he hears, and will declare to you the things that are coming.
He will glorify me, because he will take from what is mine and declare it to you.
Everything that the Father has is mine; for this reason I told you that he will take from what is mine and declare it to you.”

Commentary of the day

Saint Gregory Nazianzen

(330-390),

Bishop and Doctor of the Church

5th Theological Discourse no.31, 25-27 ; PG 36, 159

“When he comes, the Spirit of truth, he will guide you to all truth”

In the course of the ages two great revolutions have shaken the earth; we call them the two Covenants. The first one caused people to pass from idol worship to the Law, and the second, from the Law to the Gospel. A third upheaval is predicted: that which will transport us from below to above, whereupon there will be no more movement or disturbance. Now these two Covenants both share one same characteristic..: neither of them suddenly caused an instantaneous transformation… They were not to force but to persuade us. For what is imposed by force does not last…

The Old Testament manifested the Father clearly and the Son obscurely. The New Testament has revealed the Son and hinted at the divinity of the Spirit. Today the Spirit is alive in our midst and is making himself know more clearly. It would have been hazardous, so long as the Father’s divinity was not recognized, to preach the Son openly, and so long as the Son’s divinity was not acknowledged, to impose… the Holy Spirit. One might have feared that, like people who are surfeited or like those who stare at the sun with weak eyes, believers would have run the risk of losing what they had strength to bear. So the glory of the Trinity had to shine out in successive steps or, as David says, “from strength to strength” (Ps 84[83],8) and progressively, from one degree of glory to another…

I would like to add one further consideration: our Savior knew certain things that he considered his disciples would be unable to bear in spite of all the teaching they had already received. For the same reasons as I said above, he kept these things hidden. And he emphasized that when the Spirit came, he would teach them all things.

Saint of the day

Sts. Donatian & Rogatian,

Martyrs

(c. 287)

SAINTS DONATIAN and ROGATIAN
Martyrs
(c. 287)

        Here lived at Nantes (France) an illustrious young nobleman  named Donatian, who, having received the holy Sacrament of Regeneration,  led a most edifying life, and strove with much zeal to convert others  to faith in Christ.

        His elder brother, Rogatian, was not able to resist the  moving example of his piety and the force of his discourses, and desired  to be baptized. But the bishop having withdrawn and concealed himself  for fear of the persecution, he was not able to receive that sacrament,  but was shortly after baptized in his blood; for he declared himself a  Christian at a time when to embrace that sacred profession was to become  a candidate for martyrdom.

        Donatian was impeached for professing himself a Christian,  and for having withdrawn others, particularly his brother, from the  worship of the gods. Donatian was therefore apprehended, and having  boldly confessed Christ before the governor, was cast into prison and  loaded with irons. Rogatian was also brought before the prefect, who  endeavored first to gain him by flattering speeches, but Ending him  inflexible, sent him to prison with his brother.

        Rogatian grieved that he had not been able to receive the  Sacrament of Baptism, and prayed that the kiss of peace which his  brother gave him might supply it. Donatian also prayed for him that his  faith might procure for him the effect of Baptism, and the effusion of  his blood that of the Sacrament of Confirmation.

        They passed that night together in fervent prayer. They were  the next day called for again by the prefect, to whom they declared that  they were ready to suffer for the name of Christ whatever torments were  prepared for them. By the order of the inhuman judge they were first  stretched on the rack, afterwards their hands were pierced with lanced,  and lastly cut off, about the year 287.
