Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ 

Jesus said to the crowds and to his disciples: “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees,

you hypocrites. You lock the kingdom of heaven before human beings.

 

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Matthew 23:13-22.

Jesus said to the crowds and to his disciples: “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, you hypocrites. You lock the kingdom of heaven before human beings. You do not enter yourselves, nor do you allow entrance to those trying to enter.
(…)
Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, you hypocrites. You traverse sea and land to make one convert, and when that happens you make him a child of Gehenna twice as much as yourselves.
Woe to you, blind guides, who say, ‘If one swears by the temple, it means nothing, but if one swears by the gold of the temple, one is obligated.’
Blind fools, which is greater, the gold, or the temple that made the gold sacred?
And you say, ‘If one swears by the altar, it means nothing, but if one swears by the gift on the altar, one is obligated.’
You blind ones, which is greater, the gift, or the altar that makes the gift sacred?
One who swears by the altar swears by it and all that is upon it;
one who swears by the temple swears by it and by him who dwells in it;
one who swears by heaven swears by the throne of God and by him who is seated on it.”

Commentary of the day

Epistle of Barnabas (c. 130)
§ 18 &19 Translated by J.B. Lightfoot

“Choose the road that leads to the Kingdom “

   There are two ways of teaching and of power, the one of light and the other of darkness; and there is a great difference between the two ways. For on the one are stationed the light giving angels of God, on the other the angels of Satan…

   This then is the way of light if anyone desiring to travel along the way to his appointed place wants to be zealous in his works. The knowledge, then, which is given to us whereby we may walk in it is as follows: you shall love the Lord who made you, fear Him who created you, glorify Him who redeemed you from death; you shall be simple in heart and rich in spirit; you shall not cleave to those who walk the way of death… You shall not exalt yourself but shall be humble minded in all things. You shall not assume glory to yourself. You shall not entertain wicked designs against your neighbor… You shall not stir up a difference with someone as reproof for a transgression. You shall be meek, you shall be quiet, you shall fear the words you have just heard. You shall not bear a grudge against your brother.

   You shall not doubt whether a thing shall be or not be. You shall not take the name of the Lord in vain. You shall love your neighbor more than your own soul. You shall not murder a child by abortion, nor again shall you kill it when it is born… The accidents that befall you, you shall receive as good, knowing that nothing is done without God.

   You shall allow your neighbor to share in all things and not say that anything is your own. For if you are fellow sharers in that which is imperishable, how much rather shall you be so with perishable things?… You shall utterly hate the Evil One. You shall judge righteously. You shall not make divisions but shall pacify people who contend with each other by bringing them together. You shall confess your sins. You shall not take yourself to prayer with an evil conscience.

Saint of the day

St. Augustine,

Bishop and Doctor of the Church

SAINT AUGUSTINE OF HIPPO
Bishop and Doctor of the Church
(354-430)

        St. Augustine was born in 354, at Tagaste in Africa. He was brought up in the Christian faith, but without receiving baptism. An ambitious school-boy of brilliant talents and violent passions, he early lost both his faith and his innocence. He persisted in his irregular life until he was thirty-two. Being then at Milan professing rhetoric, he tells us that the faith of his childhood had regained possession of his intellect, but that he could not as yet resolve to break the chains of evil habit.

        One day, a however, stung to the heart by the account of some sudden conversions, be cried out, “The unlearned rise and storm heaven, and we, with all our learning, for lack of heart lie wallowing here.” He then withdrew into a garden, when a long and terrible conflict ensued. Suddenly a young fresh voice (he knows not whose) breaks in upon his strife with the words, “Take and read;” and he lights upon the passage beginning, “Walk honestly as in the day.” The battle was won. He received baptism, returned home, and gave all to the poor.

        At Hippo, where he settled, he was consecrated bishop in 395. For thirty-five years he was the centre of ecclesiastical life in Africa, and the Church’s mightiest champion against heresy; whilst his writings have been everywhere accepted as one of the principal sources of devotional thought and theological speculation.

        He died in 430.
