Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ .

Jesus said to his Apostles:

“No disciple is above his teacher, no slave above his master.

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Matthew 10:24-33.

Jesus said to his Apostles: “No disciple is above his teacher, no slave above his master.
It is enough for the disciple that he become like his teacher, for the slave that he become like his master. If they have called the master of the house Beelzebul, how much more those of his household!
Therefore do not be afraid of them. Nothing is concealed that will not be revealed, nor secret that will not be known.
What I say to you in the darkness, speak in the light; what you hear whispered, proclaim on the housetops.
And do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul; rather, be afraid of the one who can destroy both soul and body in Gehenna.
Are not two sparrows sold for a small coin? Yet not one of them falls to the ground without your Father’s knowledge.
Even all the hairs of your head are counted.
So do not be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.
Everyone who acknowledges me before others I will acknowledge before my heavenly Father.
But whoever denies me before others, I will deny before my heavenly Father.”

Commentary of the day

Blessed Charles de Foucauld

(1858-1916),

Hermit and missionary in the Sahara
Meditations on St Luke’s Gospel, 1898

“But I say to you: love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you” (Mt 5,44)

“As soon as you declare yourselves to be my servants, you must expect to be persecuted. I was persecuted all my life long. When I was born, Herod wanted to put me to death; I had scarcely begun to preach when my fellow men wanted to kill me; hardly had I escaped from their hands than I found myself exposed to the snares of the Pharisees and Herod [Antipas], who pursued me from town to town and daily, for three years, set new traps for me to cause my death…

“You must accept these persecutions with joy, as precious signs of being like me, as a way of imitating your Beloved. Bear them peacefully, knowing that, if these things happen to you, it is because I permit them to, and that they will not touch you except in the measure that I allow – I, without whose consent, not a hair of your head is able to fall. Accept them… welcoming all that happens, since all that happens brings about the glory of God in one way or another. Suffer them courageously, offering your sufferings to God as a sacrificial holocaust for his glory… Suffer them while praying for your persecutors since they are God’s children, God desires their salvation, and because I will give my blood to save them. I myself have set you an example of prayer for all men, for our persecutors and our enemies.”

Saint of the day

St. Bonaventure,

(1218-1274)

Saint Bonaventure
Bishop and Doctor of the Church
(1218-1274)

        Sanctity and learning raised Bonaventure to the Church’s highest honors, and from a child he was the companion of Saints. Yet at heart he was ever the poor Franciscan friar, and practised and taught humility and mortification.

        St. Francis gave him his name; for, having miraculously cured him of a mortal sickness, he prophetically exclaimed of the child, “O bona ventura!”-good luck.

         He is known also as the “Seraphic Doctor,” from the fervor of divine love which breathes in his writings. He was the friend of St. Thomas Aquinas, who asked him one day whence he drew his great learning. He replied by pointing to his crucifix. At another time St. Thomas found him in ecstasy while writing the life of St. Francis, and exclaimed, “Let us leave a Saint to write of a Saint.” They received the Doctor’s cap together.

        He was the guest and adviser of St. Louis, and the director of St. Isabella, the king’s sister. At the age of thirty-five in 1257 he was made general of his Order; and only escaped another dignity, the Archbishopric of York, by dint of tears and entreaties. Gregory X. appointed him Cardinal Bishop of Albano.

        When the Saint heard of the Pope’s resolve to create him a Cardinal, he quietly made his escape from Italy. But Gregory sent him a summons to return to Rome. On his way, he stopped to rest himself at a convent of his Order near Florence; and there two Papal messengers, sent to meet him with the Cardinal’s hat, found him washing the dishes. The Saint desired them to hang the hat on a bush that was near, and take a walk in the garden until he had finished what he was about. Then taking up the hat with unfeigned sorrow, he joined the messengers, and paid them the respect due to their character.

        He sat at the Pontiff’s right hand, and spoke first at the Council of Lyons. His piety and eloquence won over the Greeks to Catholic union, and then his strength failed.

        He died while the Council was sitting, and was buried by the assembled bishops, A. D. 1274.
