Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ

“Amen, amen, I say to you,

whatever you ask the Father in my name he will give you.”

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint John 16:20-23a.

Jesus said to his disciples: “Amen, amen, I say to you, you will weep and mourn, while the world rejoices; you will grieve, but your grief will become joy.
When a woman is in labor, she is in anguish because her hour has arrived; but when she has given birth to a child, she no longer remembers the pain because of her joy that a child has been born into the world.
So you also are now in anguish. But I will see you again, and your hearts will rejoice, and no one will take your joy away from you.
On that day you will not question me about anything. Amen, amen, I say to you, whatever you ask the Father in my name he will give you.”

Commentary of the day

Saint Caesarius of Arles

(470-543), Monk and Bishop
Sermon 166

“The kingdom of God is… justice, peace, and the joy that is given by the Holy Spirit.” (Rom 14:17)

What is true joy, brethren, other than the kingdom of heaven? And what is the kingdom of heaven other than Christ our Lord? I know that everyone wants to have true joy. But the person who wants to be happy with his harvest without cultivating his field is deluding himself; the person who wants to harvest fruit without planting trees is mistaken. We cannot have true joy without righteousness and peace… At present, respecting righteousness and having peace, we work hard for a short time like people bent over good work. But afterwards, we will rejoice without end because of the fruit of that work.

Listen to the apostle Paul, who said of Christ: “It is he who is our peace.” (Eph 2:14) … And speaking to his disciples, the Lord told them: “I shall see you again; then your hearts will rejoice with a joy no one can take from you.” What is that joy that no one can take from you other than your Lord himself, whom no one can take from you?

So examine your conscience, brethren; if righteousness reigns there, if you want, desire and wish the same thing for everyone as for yourself, if there is peace in you, not only with your friends but equally with your enemies, then know that the kingdom of heaven, which is to say Christ the Lord, abides in you.

Saint of the day

St. Philip Neri,

Priest

(1515-1595) – Memorial

SAINT PHILIP NERI
Priest
(1515-1595)

        Philip was one of the noble line of Saints raised up by God in the sixteenth century to console and bless His Church. After a childhood of angelic beauty the Holy Spirit drew him away from Florence, the place of his birth, showed him the world, that he might freely renounce it, led him to Rome, modelled him in mind and heart and will, and then, as by a second Pentecost, came down in visible form and filled his soul with light and peace and joy. He would have gone to India, but God reserved him for Rome.

        There he went on simply from day to day, drawing souls to Jesus, exercising them in mortification and charity, and binding them together by cheerful devotions; thus, unconsciously to himself, under the hands of Mary, as he said, the Oratory grew up, and all Rome was pervaded and transformed by its spirit.

        His life was a continuous miracle, his habitual state an ecstasy. He read the hearts of men, foretold their future, knew their eternal destiny. His touch gave health of body; his very look calmed souls in trouble and drove away temptations. He was gay, genial, and irresistibly winning; neither insult nor wrong could dim the brightness of his joy.

        Philip lived in an atmosphere of sunshine and gladness which brightened all who came near him. “When I met him in the street,” says one, “he would pat my cheek and say, ‘Well, how is Don Pellegrino?’ and leave me so full of joy that I could not tell which way I was going.”

        Others said that when he playfully pulled their hair or their ears, their hearts would bound with joy. Marcio Altieri felt such overflowing gladness in his presence that he said Philip’s room was a paradise on earth.

        Fabrizio de Massimi would go in sadness or perplexity and stand at Philip’s door; he said it was enough to see him, to be near him. And long after his death it was enough for many, when troubled, to go into his room to find their hearts lightened and gladdened. He inspired a boundless confidence and love, and was the common refuge and consoler of all. A gentle jest would convey his rebukes and veil his miracles. The highest honors sought him out, but he put them from him.

        He died in his eightieth year, in 1595, and bears the grand title of Apostle of Rome.
