Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ

“My daughter has just died. But come, lay your hand on her, and she will live.”

Jesus came and took her by the hand, and the little girl arose.

 

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Matthew 9:18-26.

While Jesus was speaking, an official came forward, knelt down before him, and said, “My daughter has just died. But come, lay your hand on her, and she will live.”
Jesus rose and followed him, and so did his disciples.
A woman suffering hemorrhages for twelve years came up behind him and touched the tassel on his cloak.
She said to herself, “If only I can touch his cloak, I shall be cured.”
Jesus turned around and saw her, and said, “Courage, daughter! Your faith has saved you.” And from that hour the woman was cured.
When Jesus arrived at the official’s house and saw the flute players and the crowd who were making a commotion,
he said, “Go away! The girl is not dead but sleeping.” And they ridiculed him.
When the crowd was put out, he came and took her by the hand, and the little girl arose.
And news of this spread throughout all that land.

Commentary of the day

Saint Hilary

(c.315-367),

Bishop of Poitiers, Doctor of the Church

Commentary on Saint Matthew’s Gospel, 9, 5-8 (cf SC 254, p 209f)

“The girl is not dead but sleeping”

This synagogue official can be understood as representing the Law of Moses which, when interceding on behalf of the crowd it had nurtured for Christ by preaching the expectation of his coming, asks the Lord to restore a dead woman to life… The Lord promised to help him and, to assure him of it, he followed him.

First of all, however, the mass of pagan sinners was saved together with the apostles. The gift of life reverted in the first place to the elect predestined by the Law, yet before that salvation was bestowed on publicans and sinners in the image of the woman. That was why this woman was confident that, coming upon the Lord as he passed by, she would be healed of her haemorrhage at the touch of the Lord’s garment… In her faith she was in haste to touch the fringe of his garment, that is to say to attain, together with the apostles, the gift of the Holy Spirit emanating from Christ’s body after the manner of a fringe. She was very soon healed. Thus the cure intended for the one was also granted to the other, whose faith and  perseverance the Lord praised since what had been prepared for Israel had been received by the gentiles… The healing power of the Lord, contained in his body, spread even to the fringes of his garments. For indeed God is neither divisible nor graspable in such a way as to be enclosed within a body. He himself shares out his gifts in the Spirit but is not divided among his gifts. In every place his power is touched by faith because it exists everywhere and is never absent from anywhere. The body he took did not restrict his power but his power took on the weakness of a body to redeem it…

Then the Lord entered the official’s house, otherwise called the synagogue…, and many people mocked him. Effectively, they didn’t believe in the God-man and laughed to hear him preach the resurrection from the dead. Taking the young girl’s hand the Lord restored her to life, whose death was, where he was concerned, nothing but a dream.

Saints of the day

Sts. Rufina & Secunda,

Virgins and Martyrs

(3rd century)

SAINTS RUFINA AND SECUND
Virgins and Martyrs
(3rd century°)

         Rufina and Secunda were sisters and Roman virgins who rejected marriage to Armentarius and Verinus because they had vowed their virginity to Christ. They were apprehended during the reign of the Emperors Valerian and Gallienus and, when they could not be swayed from their resolution by the blandishments and threats of Junius, the prefect, they were afflicted with various kinds of torments.

        But when, guarded by angels, they persevered in their holy resolution, they were beheaded at the tenth milestone on the Aurelien Way. Their bodies were buried by a matron named Plautilla on her estate outside the city, and were afterwards buried in the basilica of Constantine, near the baptistry.

The Seven Holy Brothers &

their mother St. Felicitas,

Martyrs

(† c. 150)

THE SEVEN HOLY BROTHERS
and ST. FELICITAS, their Mother
Martyrs
(† c. 150)

        The illustrious martyrdom of these Saints happened at Rome, under the Emperor Antoninus. The seven brothers were the sons of St. Felicitas, a noble, pious, Christian widow in Rome, who, after the death of her husband, served God in a state of continency and employed herself wholly in prayer, fasting, and works of charity. By the public and edifying example of this lady and her whole family many idolaters were moved to renounce the worship of their false gods, and to embrace the Faith of Christ.

        This excited the anger of the heathen priests, who complained to the emperor that the boldness with which Felicitas publicly practised the Christian religion drew many from the worship of the immortal gods, who were the guardians and protectors of the empire, and that, in order to appease these false gods, it was necessary to compel this lady and her children to sacrifice to them.

        Publius, the prefect of Rome, caused the mother and her sons to be apprehended and brought before him, and, addressing her, said, “Take pity on your children, Felicitas; they are in the bloom of youth, and may aspire to the greatest honors and preferments.” The holy mother answered, “Your pity is really impiety, and the compassion to which you exhort me would make me the most cruel of mothers.” Then turning herself towards her children, she said to them, “My sons, look up to heaven, where Jesus Christ with his Saints expects you. Be faithful in his love, and fight courageously for your souls.”

        Publius, being exasperated at this behavior, commanded her to be cruelly buffeted; he then called the children to him one after another, and used many artful speeches, mingling promises with threats to induce them to adore the gods. His arguments and threats were equally in vain, and the brothers were condemned to be scourged. After being whipped, they were remanded to prison, and the prefect, despairing to overcome their resolution, laid the whole process before the emperor. Antoninus gave an order that they should be sent to different judges, and be condemned to different deaths.

        Januarius was scourged to death with whips loaded with plummets of lead. The two next, Felix and Philip, were beaten with clubs till they expired. Sylvanus, the fourth, was thrown headlong down a steep precipice. The three youngest, Alexander, Vitalis, and Martialis, were beheaded, and the same sentence was executed upon the mother four months after.
