“Let the children come to me, and do not prevent them;

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Matthew 19:13-15.

Children were brought to Jesus that he might lay his hands on them and pray. The disciples rebuked them,
but Jesus said, “Let the children come to me, and do not prevent them; for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”
After he placed his hands on them, he went away.

Commentary of the day

Saint Maximus of Turin (?-c.420), Bishop
Homily 58, on the Easter Mystery; PL 57, 363

“The Kingdom of Heaven belongs to such as these”

What a great and splendid gift God has given us, my brothers ! In his Easter mystery… Christ’s resurrection causes what used only recently to perish in sin to be reborn in the innocence of babes. Christ’s simplicity makes childhood his very own. A child is without rancor, does not know deceit, dares not strike. Thus this child who has become a Christian does not give way to anger when insulted, does not defend himself when stripped of everything, does not hit back if someone strikes him. The Lord even demands that we pray for our enemies, give up our tunics and cloaks to robbers, and turn the other cheek (Mt 5:39f).

This childhood in Christ goes beyond mere human childhood. The latter pays no attention to sin, the former repels it. The latter owes its innocence to its weakness, the former to its virtue. It is worthy of even more accolades: its hatred of evil comes from its will, not from its powerlessness… Certainly, we can encounter the wisdom of old age in a child and the innocence of the youth in aged persons. And love that is upright and true can mature the young: “For the age that is honorable comes not with the passing of time, nor can it be measured in terms of years, but by understanding” (Wsd 4:8). But to the apostles who were already of mature age, the Lord said: “Unless you turn and become like children, you will not enter the kingdom of heaven” (Mt 18:3). He sends them back to the very beginning of their lives and encourages them to re-find their childhood so that these men, whose strength is already declining, should be reborn to innocence of heart. “No one can enter the kingdom of God without being born of water and the Spirit” (Jn 3:5).

Saint of the day

St. John Eudes,

Priest

(1601-1680)

SAINT JOHN EUDES
Priest
(1601-1680)

        John was born in the year 1601, of religious and distinguished parents, at a village commonly known as Ri in the diocese of Seez in France.

        While still a boy, after being refreshed with the Bread of Angels, he made a vow of perpetual chastity.  At school,where he was very proficient in his studies, he was conspicuous for his remarkable piety. He had the greastest love for the Blessed Virgin,and burned with a marvelous love for his neighbor.

        He enrolled himself in the Congregation of the Oratory (founded by Cardinal) de Berullé and was ordained a priest at Paris. He was made rector of the Oratorian house at Caen, but later regretfully withdrew from the  congregation so that he might educate suitable young men for the ministry of the Church.

        Accordingly, with five associates, he founded a congregation of priests and gave it the most holy names of Jesus and Mary. He opened the first seminary at Caen, and it was followed afterwards by many others elsewhere. That he might recall women of immoral life to the Christian life, he founded the Institute of Our Lady of Charity, of which most noble tree, the Congregation of the Good Shepherd of Angers is a branch.

        Among his other works of charity is the Society of the Admirable Heart of the Mother of God. Burning with singular love towards the most holy Hearts of Jesus and Mary, by divine inspiration, he was the first to promote their liturgical worship. As an apostolic missionary he preached the Gospel in many villages and cities.

        Weakened almost to death by  so many labors, on the tenth of the Nones of August, in the year 1680, he peacefully expired.
