Matthew 5:13-19, Part VII

Salt and Light
13 “You are the salt of the earth; but if salt has lost its taste, how can its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything, but is thrown out and trampled under foot.
14 “You are the light of the world. A city built on a hill cannot be hid. 15 No one after lighting a lamp puts it under the bushel basket, but on the lampstand, and it gives light to all in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven.
The Law and the Prophets
17 “Do not think that I have come to abolish the law or the prophets; I have come not to abolish but to fulfill. 18 For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth pass away, not one letter,[a] not one stroke of a letter, will pass from the law until all is accomplished. 19 Therefore, whoever breaks[b] one of the least of these commandments, and teaches others to do the same, will be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever does them and teaches them will be called great in the kingdom of heaven.

 





 


 

Catena Aurea - St. Thomas Aquinas. A continuous commentary on the four Gospels, consisting exclusively of the passages of the ecclesiastical writers and Fathers of the Church. 


Pseudo-Chrys.: Or, men of the world may be figured in the "corn-measure" as these are empty above, but full beneath, so worldly men are foolish in spiritual things, but wise in earthly things, and therefore like a corn-measure they keep the word of God hid, whenever for any worldly cause he had not dared to proclaim the word openly, and the truth of the faith. The stand for the lamp is the Church which bears the word of life, and all ecclesiastical persons. (margin note: Ph 2,15)
Hilary: Or, the Lord likened the Synagogue to a corn-measure, which only receiving within itself such fruit as was raised; contained a certain measure of limited obedience.
Ambrose. non occ.: And therefore let none shut up his faith within the measure of the Law, but have recourse to the Church in which the grace of the sevenfold Spirit shines forth.
Bede, in Loc. quoad sens.: Or, Christ Himself has lighted this lamp, when He filled the earthen vessel of human nature with the fire of His Divinity, which He would not either hide from them that believe, nor put under a bushel that is shut up under the measure of the Law, or confine within the limits of any one oration. The lampstand is the Church, on which He set the lamp, when He affixed to our foreheads the faith of His incarnation.

FROM THE WRITINGS OF LUISA PICCARRETA


Vol. 35, October 12, 1937

Further, when the creature wants our Will, all her acts are like many messengers between Heaven and earth; they go up and down continuously, being messengers now of peace, now of love, now of glory. Sometimes, they even command our Divine Justice to stop, taking Its just fury upon themselves. How much good these messengers do! As soon as We see them coming before our Throne, We recognize Ourselves in these acts which, disguised by the human veils of the acts of the creatures, hide our own Will - but it’s always our Will. So, pleased, We say: ‘What an art of Love It has! It hides inside the acts of the creatures, so as not to be recognized. But We know It anyway, and, since it is Ourselves loving, We let It do whatever It wills.’
So, we call these acts ‘our acts’, and we recognize them as such, although the creature concurred, giving her acts as clothes to cover them. She is the support on which my Divine Will can lean, delighting in developing Its Life, in making unheard-of prodigies, in hiding Itself within the creature - as if It would cover Itself with her remains; even more so, since the Creation and the creatures have their origin in Its Fiat - living, growing and being preserved in It. The Fiat is the Actor and the Audience of all their acts; they will live their lives in my Fiat, and will fly to Heaven with one act wanted by It. Everything belongs to It. All the rights are Its own. Nobody can escape my Fiat. The only difference is that one who lives in It, lives together with It - knows It and is aware of everything It does; delights It with her company; and forms Its joy and the confirmation of what my Will wants to do in her. On the other hand, one who does not live in it, does not know It; she remains isolated and forms Its continuous pain.”





Gospel




Luke 12:35-40, Part III
Watchful Slaves
35 “Be dressed for action and have your lamps lit; 36 be like those who are waiting for their master to return from the wedding banquet, so that they may open the door for him as soon as he comes and knocks. 37 Blessed are those slaves whom the master finds alert when he comes; truly I tell you, he will fasten his belt and have them sit down to eat, and he will come and serve them. 38 If he comes during the middle of the night, or near dawn, and finds them so, blessed are those slaves.
39 “But know this: if the owner of the house had known at what hour the thief was coming, he[a] would not have let his house be broken into. 40 You also must be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an unexpected hour.”

 


 
 




 



 

Catena Aurea - St. Thomas Aquinas. A continuous commentary on the four Gospels, consisting exclusively of the passages of the ecclesiastical writers and Fathers of the Church. 

But we must observe, that He first orders our loins to be girded, secondly, our lamps to be burning. For first indeed comes action, then reflection, which is an enlightening of the mind. Let us then strive to exercise the virtues, that we may have two lamps burning, that is, the conception of the mind ever shining forth in the soul, by which we are ourselves enlightened, and learning, whereby we enlighten others. 

From the writings of Luisa Piccarreta


Vol. 19, April 9, 1926
My Will does not know how to compromise, as virtues do, with the low and little things that can be done on earth; rather, It wants to keep everything and everyone as a footstool at Its feet, and change the whole interior of the soul and the very virtues into Divine Will. In a word, It wants Its own heaven in the depth of the soul, otherwise It would remain hindered, and would not be able to carry out Its Divine Life. So, here is the great difference which exists between the virtues and my Will - between the sanctity of one and of the other: the virtues can be of creatures and can form a human sanctity at the most; my Will is of God and can form a Sanctity which is fully divine. What a difference! However, since the creatures are used to looking down below, they are more impressed by the little lamps of the virtues, than by the great Sun of my Will.”
