Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ 

“Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the road

broad that leads to destruction, and those who enter through it are many.

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Matthew 7:6.12-14.

Jesus said to his disciples: “Do not give what is holy to dogs, or throw your pearls before swine, lest they trample them underfoot, and turn and tear you to pieces.
Do to others whatever you would have them do to you. This is the law and the prophets.”
“Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the road broad that leads to destruction, and those who enter through it are many.
How narrow the gate and constricted the road that leads to life. And those who find it are few.”

Commentary of the day

Saint John-Paul II, Pope from 1978 to 2005
Speech in Paris on June 3, 1980

“How narrow the gate and constricted the road that leads to life”

I have come to encourage you on the road of the Gospel. It is certainly a narrow road, but it is a regal road, one that is sure, tried by generations of Christians, taught by the saints… It is the road on which, like you, your brothers in the universal Church are trying to walk. This road does not lead to resignation, to renunciation or abandonment. It does not end up in a weakening of the moral sense, and it would wish that civil law itself help to raise up the human person. It does not seek to bury itself, to remain unnoticed; on the contrary, it demands the joyful audacity of the apostles. Thus, it banishes all faintheartedness, while being perfectly respectful towards those who do not share the same ideal…

The great Pope St. Leo said, “Christian, recognize your dignity!” And I, his unworthy successor, I tell you, my brothers and sisters: Recognize your dignity! Be proud of your faith, of the gift of the Spirit whom the Father has given you. I come among you as a poor man whose only wealth is faith, a pilgrim of the Gospel. Give to the Church and the world the example of your unfailing fidelity and your missionary zeal. I want my visit to you to be … a call to new energy before the many tasks presented to you.

Saints of the day

St. Cyril of Alexandria,

Bishop and Doctor of the Church

(+ 444)

SAINT CYRIL OF ALEXANDRIA
Bishop and Doctor of the Church
(+444)

        Cyril of Alexandria, nephew of Theophilus, Bishop of Alexandria, gave evidences even as a youth of outstanding intelligence. After Theophilus’ death he was called to that very See, became a sincere example to his flock, and grew famous as a most excellent pastor.

        He showed marked assiduousness in the preservation of the Catholic faith against Nestorius, who asserted that Jesus Christ was born of the Virgin Mary only as a man and not as God, and tha divinity was conferred on him for his merits.

        After Cyril tried in vain to correct Nestorius, he denounced him to Pope St. Celestine. With this Pontiff’s delegated authority, Cyril attended some sessions of the Council of Ephesus at which the Nestorian heresy was absolutely condemned, Nestorius excommunicated, and removed from his See, and the Catholic dogma of one divine person in Christ and the divine maternity of the glorious Virgin Mary asserted.

        Solicitous for the faith alone, he suffered a great deal on account of it, carried out the greatest labors for God’s Church, produced a great many writings, and died a holy death in the year 444, in the thirty-second year of his episcopacy.

Saints of the day

St. Lasdilas,

King

(1041-1095)

SAINT LADISLAS
King
(1041-1095)

        Ladislas the First, son of Bela, King of Hungary, was born in 1041. By the pertinacious importunity of the people he was compelled, much against his own inclination, to ascend the throne, in 1080.

        He restored the good laws and discipline which St. Stephen had established, and which seem to have been obliterated by the confusion of the times. Chastity, meekness, gravity, charity, and piety were from his infancy the distinguishing parts of his character; avarice and ambition were his sovereign aversion, so perfectly had the maxims of the Gospel extinguished in him all propensity to those base passions.

        His life in the palace was most austere; he was frugal and abstemious, but most liberal to the Church and the poor. Vanity, pleasure, or idle amusements had no share in his actions or time, because all his moments were consecrated to the exercises of religion and the duties of his station, in which he had only the divine will in view, and sought only God’s greater honor.

        He watched over a strict and impartial administration of justice, was generous and merciful to his enemies, and vigorous in the defence of his country and the Church. He drove the Huns out of his territories, and vanquished the Poles, Russians, and Tartars.

        He was preparing to command, as general-in-chief, the great expedition of the Christians against the Saracens for the recovery of the Holy Land, when God called him to Himself, on the 30th of July, 1095.
