Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ 

They came out and entered the swine, and the whole herd

rushed down the steep bank into the sea where they drowned.

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Matthew 8:28-34.

When Jesus came to the territory of the Gadarenes,
two demoniacs who were coming from the tombs met him. They were so savage that no one could travel by that road.
They cried out, “What have you to do with us, Son of God? Have you come here to torment us before the appointed time?”
Some distance away a herd of many swine was feeding.
The demons pleaded with him, “If you drive us out, send us into the herd of swine.”
And he said to them, “Go then!” They came out and entered the swine, and the whole herd rushed down the steep bank into the sea where they drowned.
The swineherds ran away, and when they came to the town they reported everything, including what had happened to the demoniacs.
Thereupon the whole town came out to meet Jesus, and when they saw him they begged him to leave their district.

Commentary of the day

Saint John Chrysostom

(c.345-407), priest at Antioch then Bishop of Constantinople,

Doctor of the Church
Homily on the word cemetery and on the cross

Setting the prisoners free

Today Jesus Christ has entered the depths of hell, conquering them. Today, “bronze doors he has shattered, iron bars he has snapped”, as Isaiah says (45,2). Take note of these words. He does not say that he has “opened” the bronze doors or has taken them down but that he has “shattered” them, in this way making us understand that the prison-house exists no more, that Jesus has totally destroyed the place where captives dwell. A prison that no longer has doors or bolts can hold its prisoners no more. Who could rebuild the doors that Christ has shattered? Who could replace the bolts that he has snapped?

When the princes of the earth set prisoners free by issuing a reprieve, they still leave in place the gates and prison guards to show those who are leaving that they might still return – either they or some others. But Christ does not act like this. When he shatters the bronze doors, he bears witness that there is no more captivity, no more death.

Why “bronze” doors? Because death was pitiless, inflexible, as hard as diamond. Not once through all the centuries before Jesus Christ, not once did any of its captives escape it until the day when the Lord of heaven descended to the abyss to snatch its victims from it.

Saint of the day

St. Anthony Mary Zaccaria,

Priest

(1502-1539)

SAINT ANTHONY MARY ZACCARIA
Priest
(1502-1539)

         Anthony Mary Zaccaria, born of a noble family of Cremona, while still a boy shone with modesty of manners and compassion for the poor.

        He studied the humanities, philosophy and medicine, and easily surpassed his companions both in moral integrity and in mental ability.

        By divine inspiration, he devoted himself earnestly to the study of the Sacred Sciences; then, promoted to the priesthood, he served in that office so well that his fellow-citizens used to call him Father and Angel of his country.

        At Milan, with Bartholomew Ferrari and James Morigia, most saintly men, he founded an association of Clerks Regular, named after St. Paul, and a society of nuns called the Angelicals. He had a singular devotion towards the Holy Eucharist and was an extraordinary promoter of public exposition of the Blessed Sacrament.

        Endowed with heavenly gifts by God and worn out by his great labors, he was seized with a dangerous illness and died a most holy death at Cremona on the third of the Nones of July in the year 1539.

        Pope Leo XIII approved and confirmed the veneration shown him and added him to the calendar of the saints.
