Churches of the Day

May 15 - St Isidore (c. 1080-1130) farm-labourer & patron of Madrid

isadoreSummary: St Isidore the farm-labourer is an example of a lay saint of humble origin who attained a life of sanctity through doing ordinary work extraordinarily well and who posthumously became famous. His emblem is a sickle.

Patrick Duffy tells his story.

Farm-labourer
Born of devout parents, Isidore was named by them after St Isidore of Seville. He worked all his life as a farm-labourer for the same farmer, John de Vargas, at Torrelaguna, outside Madrid, Spain, the city of which he is now the patron saint.

His wife, (St) Maria Toribia
He was a model worker, a kind neighbour and a most devout Christian. His wife, Maria Toribia, resembled him in character and is popularly looked upon as a saint in Spain. They had a son, who died young; after that they live together as brother and sister.

IsidoretheFarmer-Reputation for holiness and miracles
Isidore would rise early to visit a church and he prayed for long periods while he was guiding the plough. He would spend his holidays on visits to local shrines. One story about him is that his employer, John, who had accused Isidore of arriving late for work, had a vision of a second team of white oxen led by angels ploughing alongside Isidore. Another story tells that while Isidore was giving half of a bag of corn he had on his back to the birds, his yield of flour kept miraculously increasing,

isadore 1Miracles after his death and canonisation
Even after his death, stories of miracles continued. He is said to have guided King Alphonsus of Castile to make a surprise attack to defeat the Moors. In 1615 King Philip III of Spain was cured of mortal fever through bringing the body of St Isidore from the Church of St Andrew, Madrid, into the king's room. Because of this, King Philip then petitioned the Holy See for his canonisation. This was done without delay and he was included along with three other famous Spanish saints - Ignatius Loyola, Francis Xavier and Teresa of Avila - in 1622. His incorrupt remains lie in the Church of St Andrew, Madrid. In art, St Isidore's emblem is a sickle.

Saturday, 6th Week of Easter


FIRST READING

A reading from the Acts of the Apostles     18:23-28
Apollos demonstrated from the scriptures that Jesus was the Christ.

Paul came down to Antioch where he spent a short time before continuing his journey through the Galatian country and then through Phrygia, encouraging all the followers.

An Alexandrian Jew named Apollos now arrived in Ephesus. He was an eloquent man, with a sound knowledge of the scriptures, and yet, though he had been given instruction in the Way of the Lord and preached with great spiritual earnestness and was accurate in all the details he taught about Jesus, he had only experienced the baptism of John. When Priscilla and Aquila heard him speak boldly in the synagogue, they took an interest in him and gave him further instruction about the Way.

When Apollos thought of crossing over to Achaia, the brothers encouraged him and wrote asking the disciples to welcome him. When he arrived there he was able by God's grace to help the believers considerably by the energetic way he refuted the Jews in public and demonstrated from the scriptures that Jesus was the Christ.

The Word of the Lord.
Thanks be to God

GOSPEL

A reading from the holy Gospel according to John    16:23-28
Glory to you, O Lord
The Father loves you for loving me and believing.

J
esus said to his disciples:

'I tell you most solemnly,
anything you ask for from the Father
he will grant in my name.

'Until now you have not asked for anything in my name.
Ask and you will receive,
and so your joy will be complete.
I have been telling you all this in metaphors,
the hour is coming when I shall no longer speak to you in metaphors;
but tell you about the Father in plain words.
When that day comes you will ask in my name;
and I do not say that I shall pray to the Father for you,
because the Father himself loves you
for loving me and believing that I came from God.
I came from the Father and have come into the world
and now I leave the world to go to the Father.'

The Gospel of the Lord.
Praise to you, Lord Jesus Christ.




Gospel Reflection             Saturday,               Sixth Week of Easter            John 16:23-28

In today’s gospel reading, Jesus is very clear about his identity, where he has come from and where he is going. He declares, ‘I came from the Father and have come into the world and now I leave the world to go to the Father’. There is a wonderful sweep in that statement. Jesus speaks of a great sweeping journey from God and back to God. There is a sense in which what Jesus says of himself can be said of every human person. We have all come from the Father and we are on a lifelong journey towards the Father. This is the essential truth about human life that Jesus has come to reveal to us. Jesus’ journey to the Father helps us to travel our journey to the Father well. He shows us the way to the Father. Indeed, he says of himself, ‘I am the way’. The way he travelled to the Father was the way of love. He gave himself in love to all, even to the point of giving his life for all. This is the way he sets before all of us, ‘love one another as I have loved you’. Jesus not only shows us the way to the Father, but he also empowers us to take that way. He has sent us the Paraclete, the Holy Spirit, to lead us to the complete truth, to lead us to God who is Truth. The Spirit leads us to God by empowering us to love one another as Jesus has loved us. We have an example of such love in action in the first reading, when a married couple, Priscilla and Aquila, gave further instruction about Jesus to a young convert, Apollo. They helped him to grow in his relationship with the Lord. Bringing each other closer to the Lord is one of the greatest loving services we can render each to each other.  We do that by revealing the Lord’s love to one another. Helping to bring each other to the Lord is a privileged expression of that way of love which leads us to the Father.

CÉAD LÉACHT 

Sliocht as Gníomhartha na nAspal      18:23-28
Apollós á thaispeáint ar fhianaise na scrioptúr gurb é Íosa an Críost.

Tar éis dó tamall aimsire a thabhairt in Aintíoc, ghluais Pól chun siúil agus i ndiaidh a chéile thaistil sé dúiche Ghalaite agus Fhrigia ag treisiú leis na deisceabail go léir.

Tháinig go hEifeasas Giúdach darbh ainm Apollós. Alastraíneach ba ea é ó dhúchas, é dea-labhartha agus sároilte ar na scrioptúir. Bhí oiliúnt faighte aige ar bhealach an Tiarna, agus cé go labhraíodh sé go díograiseach agus go dtugadh sé teagasc cruinn faoi Íosa, ní raibh ar eolas aige ach baisteadh Eoin. Thosaigh sé ag labhairt go dána sa tsionagóg agus nuair a chuala Priscille agus Acula é, thug siad leo abhaile é agus thug léiriú ní ba chruinne dó ar bhealach an Tiarna.

Agus ó tharla go raibh fonn air dul go hAcháia thug na bráithre spreagadh dó agus scríobh siad chun na ndeisceabal thall á
iarraidh orthu fáilte a chur roimhe. Agus ar theacht go Corant dó, trí ghrásta Dé ba mhór an chabhair do na creidmhigh é, mar gur sháraigh sé na Giúdaigh go rábach in argóint phoiblí, á thaispeáint ar fhianaise na scrioptúr gurb é Íosa an Críost.

Briathar Dé.

SOISCÉAL

Sliocht as an Soiscéal naofa de réir Naomh Eoin       16:23-28
Tá cion ag an Athair féin oraibh, de bhrí go raibh cion agaibh orm,  agus gur chreid sibh.

San am sin dúirt Íosa lena dheisceabail:
Amen, Amen, a deirim libh,
má iarrann sibh ní ar bith ar an Athair
tabharfaidh sé daoibh é i m’ainm-sé.
Go dtí seo níor iarr sibh ní ar bith i m’ainm.
Iarraigí agus gheobhaidh sibh,
chun go mbeadh bhur n-áthas iomlán.
Labhair mé an méid sin libh i solaoidí.
Tá an t-am ag teacht,
nuair nach labhróidh mé libh a thuilleadh i solaoidí,
ach inseoidh mé daoibh
go soiléir
mar gheall ar an Athair.
Iarrfaidh sibh i m’ainm an lá sin,
agus nílim á rá libh
go ndéanfaidh mé achainí ar an Athair ar bhur son.
Óir tá cion ag an Athair féin oraibh,
de bhrí go raibh cion agaibh orm,
agus gur chreid sibh
gur ó Dhia a ghabh mé amach.
Ghabh mé amach ón Athair, agus tháinig mé ar an saol.
Táim ag fágáil an tsaoil arís,
agus táim ag triall ar an Athair.”

Soiscéal Dé.

Scripture Themes
‘The Ascension of Christ means our own salvation as well; where the glorious Head has gone before, the body is called to follow in hope. Let us therefore exult, beloved, as is fitting, and let us rejoice in devout thanksgiving. For on this day not only have we been confirmed in our possession of paradise, but we have even entered heaven in the person of Christ; through his grace we have regained far more than we had lost through the devil’s hatred’ (St Leo the Great, Sermon 73:4). No other celebrations not even funeral Masses, are permitted today (see Lit. Note 8) The week of prayer for the coming of the Holy Spirit recalls the waiting in prayer of the disciples with Mary.

FIRST READING

A reading from the Acts of the Apostles      1:1-11
He was lifted up while they looked on.   

In my earlier work, Theophilus, I dealt with everything Jesus had done and I taught from the beginning until the day he gave his instructions to the apostles he had chosen through the Holy Spirit, and was taken up to heaven. He had shown himself alive to them after his Passion by many demonstrations: for forty days he had continued to appear to them and tell them about the kingdom of God. When hAscension1e had been at table with them, he had told them not to leave Jerusalem, but to wait there for what the Father had promised. 'It is' he had said 'what you have heard me speak about: John baptised with water but you, notmany days from now, will be baptised with the Holy Spirit.'

   Now having met together, they asked him, 'Lord, has the time come? Are you going to restore the kingdom to Israel?' He replied, 'It is not for you to know times or dates that the Father has decided by his own authority, but you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you, and then you will be my witnesses not only in Jerusalem but throughout Judaea and Samaria, and indeed to the ends of the earth.'

As he said this he was lifted up while they looked on, and a cloud took him from their sight. They were still staring into the sky when suddenly two men in white were standing near them and they said, 'Why are you men from Galilee standing here looking into the sky? Jesus who has been taken up from you into heaven, this same Jesus will come back in the same way as you have seen him go there.'

The Word of the Lord.
Thanks be to God

SECOND READING   

A reading from the letter of St Paul to the Ephesians      1:17-23
He made him sit at his right hand, in heaven.


jesus siting at the rightMay the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, give you a spirit of wisdom and perception of what is revealed, to bring you to full knowledge of him.

May he enlighten the eyes of your mind so that you can see what hope his call holds for you, what rich glories he has promised the saints will inherit and how infinitely great is the power that he has exercised for us believers. This you can tell from the strength of his power at work in Christ, when he used it to raise him from the dead and to make him sit at his right hand, in heaven, far above every Sovereignty, Authority, Power, or Domination, or any other name that can be named not only in this age but also in the age to come. He has put all things under his feet and made him, as the ruler of everything, the head of the Church; which is his body, the fullness of him who fills the whole creation.

The Word of the Lord.
Thanks be to God

Optional  Second Reading, for Year B        Ephesians 4:1-7, 11-13
Fully mature with the fullness of Christ.

Faces_of_ChristI, the prisoner in the Lord, implore you to lead a life worthy of your vocation. Bear with one another charitably, in complete selflessness, gentleness and patience. Do all you can to preserve the unity of the Spirit by the peace that binds you together. There is one Body, one Spirit, just as you were all called into one and the same hope when you were called. There is one Lord, one faith, one baptism, and one God who is Father of all, over all, through all and within all.
Each one of us, however, has been given his own share of grace, given as Christ allotted it. It was said that he would:
When he ascended to the height, he captured prisoners,
he gave gifts to men.

When it says, ‘he ascended’, what can it mean if not that he descended right down to the lower regions of the earth? The one who rose higher than all the heavens to fill all things is none other than the one who descended. And to some, his gift was that they should be apostles; to some, prophets; to some, evangelists; to some, pastors and teachers; so that the saints together make a unity in the work of service, building up the body of Christ. In this way we are all to come to unity in our faith and in our knowledge of the Son of God, until we become the perfect Man, fully mature with the fullness of Christ himself.

The Word of the Lord.
Thanks be to God

GOSPEL       

A reading from the holy Gospel according to Mark         16:15-20
Glory to you, O Lord
He was taken up into heaven: there at the right hand of God he took his place.


Jesus final sermon Jesus showed himself to the Eleven, and said to them, 'Go out to the whole world; proclaim the Good News to all creation. He who believes and is baptised will be saved; he who does not believe will be condemned. These are the signs that will be associated with believers: in my name they will cast out devils; they will have the gift of tongues; they will pick up snakes in their hands, and be unharmed should they drink deadly poison; they will lay their hands on the sick, who will recover.'

And so the Lord Jesus, after he had spoken to them, was taken up into heaven: there at the right hand of God he took his place, while they, going out, preached everywhere, the Lord working with them and confirming the word by the signs that accompanied it.

The Gospel of the Lord.
Praise to you, Lord Jesus Christ.

CÉAD LÉACHT            

 Sliocht as Leabhar Gníomhartha na nAspal       1:1-11
Agus iad ag faire, tógadh suas é.

Thug mé cuntas cheana, a Theofail, ar gach a ndearna Íosa agus ar ar thug sé de theagasc uaidh ó thús go dtí an lá a tógadh suas ar neamh é, tar éis dó a chuid orduithe a thabhairt le cabhair an Spioraid Naoimh do na haspail a bhí tofa aige. i ndiaidh a pháise is iomaí cruthú a thug sé dóibh go raibh sé beo, á nochtadh féin dóibh ar feadh daichead lá agus ag cur síos ar ríocht Dé. Ascension1Uair dá raibh sé ina gcuibhreann d’ordaigh sé dóibh gan corraí ó Iarúsailéim ach fanacht ann go dtí go gcomhlíonfaí gealltanas an Athar, “An gealltanas úd,” ar sé, “ar chuala sibh mé ag trácht air: rinne Eoin baisteadh le huisce, ach déanfar sibhse a bhaisteadh leis an Spiorad Naomh i gceann beagán laethanta.”

Más ea, nuair a bhí siad cruinnithe le chéile, thosaigh siad á cheistiú: “A Thiarna,” ar siad, “an anois atá tú chun ríocht Iosrael a athbhunú?” Ach d’fhreagair sé iad: “Ní aon chuid de bhur ngnósa é eolas a fháil ar na hamanna na ar na tráthanna atá leagtha amach ag an Athair as a údarás féin. Ach gheobhaidh sibh neart an Spioraid Naoimh atá le tuirlingt oraibh agus beidh sibh in bhur bhfinnéithe ormsa in Iarúsailéim agus ar fud Iúdáia go léir agus na Samáire agus a fhad le himeall an domhain.”

Ar rá an méid sin dó, tógadh suas os comhair a súl é agus d’ardaigh scamall as a radharc é. Fad a bhí siad ag stánadh in airde sa spéir ina dhiaidh sheas beirt fhear in éadaí bána ina n-aice. “A fheara na Gailíle,” ar siad, “cad ab áil libh in bhur seasamh ansin ag amharc in airde sa spéir?

Agus dúirt sé leo: “Imígí faoin domhan uile agus fógraígí an soiscéal don chruthaíocht uile. An té a chreidfidh agus a bhaistfear, slánófar é; ach an té nach gcreidfidh, daorfar é. “Agus leanfaidh na comharthaí seo an dream a chreideann: caithfidh siad deamhain amach i m’ainmse, labhróidh siad i dteangacha nua; tógfaidh siad nathracha ina lámha, agus má ólann siad aon deoch mharfach, ní dhéanfaidh sí díobháil dóíbh; leagfaidh siad a lámha ar easláin, agus beidh siad ar fónamh.” Tar éis dó labhairt leo, dá bhrí sin, tógadh an Tiarna Íosa suas ar neamh, agus chuaigh sé chun suite ar dheasláimh Dé. Ach iad siúd, d’imigh siad leo agus chraobhscaoil siad i ngach áit, agus chabhraigh an Tiarna leo ag neartú an bhriathair lei a comharthaí a lean é.

Is buan iad an Teachtaireacht agus an Teachtaire, agus níl athrú i ndán dóibh.
