SAINT OF THE DAY

 Pope St. Callistus I

Pope St. Callistus I

Pope St. Callistus I (d. 223 A.D.) was a Roman by birth and a Christian slave. He was the servant of a fellow Christian serving in the Roman imperial household. He was entrusted with the task of managing his master's wealth, which he used to operate a bank into which many Christians invested their money. When the bank failed due to unpaid loans, Callistus fled the city in fear of retribution. He was soon caught, and in punishment was sentenced to hard slave labor in the Sardinian mines. He eventually obtained his freedom when he and the other Christian slaves working in the mines were released, or perhaps ransomed, with special pardon from the Emperor. Callistus was later recalled to Rome by Pope Zephyrinus to serve as his deacon, top adviser, and the caretaker of the important Christian cemetery along the Appian Way. This cemetery, which now bears Callistus' name, contains the relics of many martyrs. As the Holy Father's adviser, St. Callistus drew the ire of Tertullian and St. Hippolytus of Rome who were his constant theological opponents. When Pope Zephyrinus died, Callistus was elected to the Chair of St. Peter in 217 A.D. As pope, St. Callistus was known for his leniency and forgiveness. He upheld the teaching of the Church that grave sins could be forgiven with true contrition and due penance, which was controversial at the time. He reigned for five years and died a martyr; one account holds that he was killed by an anti-Christian mob, being thrown from his house and stoned to death. His feast day is October 14th.

GOSPEL OCTOBER 15, 2017

Jesus

Jesus again in reply spoke to the chief
priests and elders of the people
in parables, saying,
"The kingdom of heaven
may be likened to a king
who gave a wedding feast for his son.
He dispatched his servants
to summon the invited
guests to the feast,
but they refused to come.
A second time he sent
other servants, saying,
'Tell those invited:
"Behold, I have prepared my banquet,
my calves and fattened cattle are killed,
and everything is ready;
come to the feast."'
Some ignored the
invitation and went away,
one to his farm,
another to his business.
The rest laid hold of his servants,
mistreated them, and killed them.
The king was enraged
and sent his troops,
destroyed those murderers,
and burned their city.
Then he said to his servants,
'The feast is ready,
but those who were invited
were not worthy to come.
Go out, therefore,
into the main roads
and invite to the feast
whomever you find.'
The servants went out into the streets
and gathered all they found,
bad and good alike,
and the hall was filled with guests.
But when the king came
in to meet the guests,
he saw a man there not dressed
in a wedding garment.
The king said to him,
'My friend, how is it
that you came in here
without a wedding garment?'
But he was reduced to silence.
Then the king said to his attendants,
'Bind his hands and feet,
and cast him into the darkness outside,
where there will be wailing
and grinding of teeth.'
Many are invited,
but few are chosen."
