Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ 

Jesus said to him, “If you wish to be perfect, go, sell what you have and

give to (the) poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.”

 

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Matthew 19:16-22

A Young man approached Jesus and said, “Teacher, what good must I do to gain eternal life?”
He answered him, “Why do you ask me about the good? There is only One who is good. If you wish to enter into life, keep the commandments.”
He asked him, “Which ones?” And Jesus replied, ” ‘You shall not kill; you shall not commit adultery; you shall not steal; you shall not bear false witness;
honor your father and your mother’; and ‘you shall love your neighbor as yourself.'”
The young man said to him, “All of these I have observed. What do I still lack?”
Jesus said to him, “If you wish to be perfect, go, sell what you have and give to (the) poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.”
When the young man heard this statement, he went away sad, for he had many possessions.

Commentary of the day

Saint Clare (1193-1252), Franciscan nun
2nd Letter to Agnes of Prague, 3-14 (Francis and Clare, trans. Regis J. Armstrong, OFM Cap and Ignatius Brady, OFM, 1982)

The one thing necessary

I give thanks to the Giver of grace from whom, we believe, “every good and perfect gift” proceeds (Jas 1:17), because he has adorned you with such splendors of virtue and signed you with such marks of perfection that, since you have become such a diligent imitator of the Father of all perfection, his eyes do not see any imperfection in you. This is the perfection which will prompt the King himself to take you to himself in glory on a starry throne because you have despised the splendors of an earthly kingdom and considered of little value the offers of an imperial marriage. Instead, as someone zealous for the holiest poverty, in the spirit of great humility and the most ardent charity, you have held fast to the footprints of him to whom you have merited to be joined as a spouse.

But since I know that you are adorned with many virtues, I will spare my words and not weary you with needless speech, even though nothing seems needless to you if you can draw from it some consolation. But because “one thing alone is necessary” (Lk 10:42) I bear witness to that one thing and encourage you for love of him to whom you have offered yourself as a “holy and pleasing sacrifice” (Rm 12:1) that, like another Rachel, you always remember your resolution and be conscious of how you began. What you hold, may you always hold. What you do, may you always do and never abandon. But with swift pace, light step, and unswerving feet, so that even your steps stir up no dust, go forward securely, joyfully, and swiftly on the path of prudent happiness, believing nothing, agreeing with nothing which would dissuade you from this resolution or which would place a stumbling block for you on the way. Thus you may offer your vows to the Most High in the pursuit of that perfection to which the Spirit of the Lord has called you.
