Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ 

“I tell you, it will be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon

on the day of judgment than for you.”

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Matthew 11:20-24.

Jesus began to reproach the towns where most of his mighty deeds had been done, since they had not repented.
“Woe to you, Chorazin! Woe to you, Bethsaida! For if the mighty deeds done in your midst had been done in Tyre and Sidon, they would long ago have repented in sackcloth and ashes.
But I tell you, it will be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon on the day of judgment than for you.
And as for you, Capernaum: ‘Will you be exalted to heaven? You will go down to the netherworld.’ For if the mighty deeds done in your midst had been done in Sodom, it would have remained until this day.
But I tell you, it will be more tolerable for the land of Sodom on the day of judgment than for you.”

Commentary of the day

Saint Jerome (347-420),

Priest, translator of the Bible, Doctor of the Church
Commentary on the prophet Joel; PL 25, 967

Jesus calls the cities of Galilee to conversion

      “The Lord is gracious and merciful” and prefers the conversion of a sinner rather than his death (Jl 2:13). “Patient and generous in his mercy”, he does not give in to human impatience but is willing to wait a long time for our repentance. So extraordinary is the Lord’s mercy in the face of evil, that if we do penance for our sins, he regrets his own threat and does not carry out against us the sanctions he had threatened. So by the changing of our attitude, he himself is changed…

In like manner, given all that the prophet has said above – that God is kind and merciful, patient, generous with his forgiveness, and extraordinary in his mercy toward evil – lest the magnitude of his clemency make us lax and negligent, he adds this word, “Who knows whether he will not turn and repent and leave behind him a blessing?” (v. 14) In other words, he says, “I exhort you to repentance, because it is my duty, and I know that God is inexhaustibly merciful, as David says, “Have mercy on me, God, according to your great mercy, and in the depths of your compassion, blot out all my iniquities” (Ps 50:3). But since we cannot know the depth of the riches and of the wisdom and knowledge of God (Rm 11:33), I will temper my statement, expressing a wish rather than taking anything for granted, and I will say, “Who knows whether he will not turn and repent?” Since he says, “Who”, it must be understood that it is not possible to know absolutely for sure.

Saint of the day

St. Frederick,

Bishop and Martyr

(† 838)

Saint Frederick
Bishop and Martyr
(† 838)

        Frederick was trained in piety and sacred learning among the clergy of the Church of Utrecht. Being ordained priest, he was charged by Bishop Ricfried with the care of instructing converts, and about 825 he was chosen to succeed him as bishop of Utrecht. The new bishop at once began to establish order everywhere, and sent St. Odulf and other zealous and virtuous labourers into the northern parts to dispel the paganism which still subsisted there.

        According to tradition St. Frederick became involved in the difficulties between the sons of the emperor, Louis the Debonair, and their father and step-mother. During these disturbances the party of the young princes charged the Empress Judith with numerous immoralities. Whatever may have been the truth of these stories, St. Frederick is said to have admonished her of them, with charity but with the effect of drawing upon himself the fury and resentment of the empress. He also got himself disliked elsewhere. The inhabitants of Walcheren were barbarous and most averse from the Gospel. On which account, St. Frederick, when he sent priests in the northern part of his diocese, took this most dangerous and difficult part chiefly to himself; and nothing gave him more trouble than marriages contracted within the forbidden decrees and the separation of the parties.

        On July 18, 838, after St. Frederick had celebrated Mass and was about to make his thanksgiving, he was stabbed by two assassins. He died in a few minutes, reciting that verse of Psalm 144, “I will praise the Lord in the land of the living”.

        St. Frederick composed a prayer to the Blessed Trinity which for many ages was used in the Netherlands. The reputation of his sanctity appears from a poem of Rabanus Maurus, his contemporary, in praise of his virtues.
