Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ

“Nor do they light a lamp and then put it under a bushel basket;

it is set on a lampstand, where it gives light to all in the house. “

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Matthew 5:13-16.

Jesus said to his disciples: “You are the salt of the earth. But if salt loses its taste, with what can it be seasoned? It is no longer good for anything but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot.
You are the light of the world. A city set on a mountain cannot be hidden.
Nor do they light a lamp and then put it under a bushel basket; it is set on a lampstand, where it gives light to all in the house.
Just so, your light must shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your heavenly Father.”

Commentary of the day

Saint John Chrysostom (c.345-407),

Priest at Antioch then Bishop of Constantinople,

Doctor of the Church
Sermons on Saint Matthew’s Gospel, no.15

Salt of the earth

“You are the salt of the earth”, the Saviour says, so showing them the necessity of all those precepts he has just proclaimed. “My word,” he says to them, “will not only apply to your own lives but has been entrusted to you for the whole world. I am not sending you out to two towns, nor to ten, nor twenty, nor even to a single people as was the case of prophets in former times. But I am sending you out to the earth, the sea, the whole creation (Mk 16:15), wherever evil is rampant.

Indeed, by saying to them: “You are the salt of the earth”, he showed them that all human nature is saltless, corrupted by sin. Through their ministry the Holy Spirit’s grace will regenerate and preserve the world. Hence he teaches them the virtues of the beatitudes: those that are most necessary and efficacious in anyone responsible for a multitude. Someone who is gentle, modest and merciful and does not just shut inside himself the good deeds he carries out in his mind but takes care that those lovely springs should also stream out for the good of others. Anyone who has a pure heart, who is a peacemaker, who suffers persecution for the truth is a person who consecrates his life for the good of others.

Saint of the day

St. Anthony of Padua,

(1195-1231)

SAINT ANTONY OF PADUA
Priest and Doctor of the Church
(1195-1231)

        In 1221 St. Francis held a general chapter at Assisi; when the others dispersed, there lingered behind, unknown and neglected, a poor Portuguese friar, resolved to ask for and to refuse nothing.

        Nine months later, Fra Antonio rose under obedience to preach to the religious assembled at Forli, when, as the discourse proceeded, “the Hammer of Heretics,” “the Ark of the Testament,” “the eldest son of St. Francis,” stood revealed in all his sanctity, learning, and eloquence before his rapt and astonished brethren.

        Devoted from earliest youth to prayer and study among the Canons Regular, Ferdinand de Bulloens, as his name was in the world, had been stirred, by the spirit and example of the first five Franciscan martyrs, to put on their habit and preach the Faith to the Moors in Africa.

        Denied a martyr’s palm, and enfeebled by sickness, at the age of twenty-seven he was taking silent but merciless revenge upon himself in the humblest offices of his community. From this obscurity he was now called forth, and for nine years France, Italy, and Sicily heard his voice, saw his miracles, and men’s hearts turned to God.

        One night, when St. Antony was staying with a friend in the city of Padua, his host saw brilliant rays streaming under the door of the Saint’s room, and on looking through the keyhole he beheld a little Child of marvellous beauty standing upon a book which lay open upon the table, and clinging with both arms round Antony’s neck. With an ineffable sweetness he watched the tender caresses of the Saint and his wondrous Visitor. At last the Child vanished, and Fra Antonio, opening the door, charged his friend, by the love of him whom he had seen, to “tell the vision to no man” as long as he was alive.

        Suddenly, in 1231, our Saint’s brief apostolate was closed, and the voices of children were heard crying along the streets of Padua, “Our father, St. Antony, is dead.” The following year, the church-bells of Lisbon rang without ringers, while at Rome one of its sons was inscribed among the Saints of God.
