Artist: Peter Paul Rubens – c. 1625

This artwork depicts seven saints who worked to safeguard and promote the Eucharist. On the left are Saint Ambrose, Saint Augustine and Saint Gregory the Great. In the center is Saint Clare of Assisi, who is given the features of the Infanta Isabel Clara Eugenia, Rubens’s patron who commissioned this series. The bareheaded Dominican Saint Thomas Aquinas asserts the doctrine of the Eucharist and its inspiration in the Holy Spirit above. Next to him are Saint Norbert and Saint Jerome, who reads his Vulgate translation of the Bible.

Around 1622-25, Peter Paul Rubens was commissioned by the Infanta Isabel Clara Eugenia, Governor of the Southern Netherlands, to design twenty tapestries which would exalt the mystery of the Eucharist for the convent of the Descalzas Reales in Madrid. In the preparation of his designs Rubens painted a number of small oil sketches and also more carefully executed, larger models. Six of these belong to the Museo del Prado. The combination of classical and Christian iconography and the contrast between Good and Evil are central to Rubens’s idiom in these works.

“To have a raven’s knowledge” is an Irish proverb meaning to have a seer’s supernatural powers. The raven is considered to be one of the oldest and wisest of all animals.

Ravens were the favorite bird of the god Lludd, the Celtic god of artists and artisans. He was said to have two ravens to attend to all of his needs (similar to Odin and his ravens).

According to the ancient tradition of the East, Mary Magdalene was a wealthy woman from whom Christ expelled seven "demons." During the three years of Jesus’ ministry, she helped support Him and His other disciples with her money. When almost everyone else fled, she stayed with Him at the cross. On Easter morning she was the first to bear witness to His resurrection. She is called "Equal to the Apostles."

After the Ascension, she journeyed to Rome where she was admitted to Tiberias Caesar's court because of her high social standing. After describing how poorly Pilate had administered justice at Jesus’ trial, she told Caesar that Jesus had risen from the dead. To help explain the resurrection, she picked up an egg from the dinner table. Caesar responded that a human being could no more rise from the dead than the egg in her hand turn red. The egg turned red immediately, which is why red eggs have been exchanged at Easter for centuries in the Byzantine East.

The inscription at the bottom of the icon reads: "Saint Mary Magdalene" in Syriac, a dialect of the language spoken by Jesus. The Gospel comes to us, not from Rome or Greece, but from the deserts of the Middle East. We owe our faith to Semetic Christians like Mary Magdalene. With this debt in mind, we should hear her voice in Palestinian cries for justice in our day.

Her feast day is July 22.

On the feast of the Holy Cross in 1224, Christ appeared to St. Francis while he prayed on a Tuscan mountain named La Verna. In this appearance, Christ had the fiery wings of a seraph. He left the wounds of his crucifixion on St. Francis’ body. This icon celebrates the seraphic Christ.

In the right corner of the icon is the falcon that woke St. Francis for prayer each night on La Verna. Just as the falcon wounds its prey, so does Christ wound St. Francis. The life of Christ enfolds the mystery of death. That mystery marked the life of St. Francis, first in his heart and soul, and then on his body. It signs each person who encounters Christ in prayer. If we die with Christ, so will we rise with him. The wounding is our healing and the death is our life.

Artist: Benedetto Luti – c. 1715 – 1720

The picture shows Christ in conversation with a Samaritan woman (John 4:1–28), signifying the universal message of Jesus’s ministry. Its subject relates to that of a larger canvas listed in an inventory taken after the artist’s death. However, the high level of finish and surface detail as well as the use of an expensive copper support make it unlikely that the artist made this merely as a preparatory study.

Luti enjoyed an outstanding reputation in Rome and this painting may have belonged to Cardinal Pietro Ottoboni (1667–1740), one of the most important patrons and collectors of the day.

Lord, Our God,
You alone are Holy,
and nobody is good without Your help.
Grant that, at the intercession
of Blessed Emma,
we may model our life according
to Your will and attain
that level of holiness
which You intend for us.
We ask this through Christ, our Lord.
Amen.

The specific lesson of Extreme Humility is the humility we seek cannot be found by any effort of our own but can only be achieved by allowing the humility of Christ to take up residence in our hearts. Our attempts at conquering pride are poor, pathetic things, doomed to failure at the outset, an instance of that “vanity of vanities” spoken of by Ecclesiastes. The only certain road to humility lies along the path of the cross and tomb of Christ Himself.

Mary, most pure Virgin and Mother of God, I remind thee of the blessed moment when thou didst see for the first time thy newly born Child and folded Him in thy arms.

Through this joy of thy maternal heart, obtain for me the grace that I and my child may be protected from all danger.

Born in the tiny Spanish village of Azana, Mother Juana fled her family and their wish to marry her at age 15. She traveled disguised as a boy, finding refuge in a Franciscan convent. In 1509, she was made abbess and had a growing reputation as a visionaryprophetess. As a woman, she was well respected by such notable males as Emperor Charles V and the cardinal and Inquisitor General Francisco Jimenez de Cisneros. She was given unheard of power in exercise of spiritual jurisdiction for a woman religious and often preached. In 1631, her holiness was so revered that the process for her beatification was begun but never finalized.

Mother Juana believed in a God in whom nothing was impossible. She insisted that she was conceived a male, yet God transformed her, en eutero, into a female. She saw her prominent Adam’s Apple as a witness of this miracle. Perhaps this belief gave her power to exercise authority usually presumed only by men of her day.

In a series of visions, she felt the anguish of all souls suffering in Purgatory. She asked, and was granted, the power to carry the pain of these souls herself so that they might rest. As her suffering became too terrible, she was directed to put stones next to her in bed, and into these the suffering was dispersed. St. Francis (who in visions she saw as a hen, as she did Christ {Matthew 23:37}), came to her in thankfulness, kissing her head and the suffering Christ within her. Francis saw in her acts the aid of beloved souls Francis could no longer help, as he was within heaven. Francis, like a hen with too many eggs to care for, was blessed with Mother Juana’s nesting of these additional souls.

Juana Inés de la Cruz's intelligence and scholarship became known throughout the country during her teen years. She began her life as a nun in 1667 so that she could study at will. After taking her vows, Sor Juana read tirelessly and wrote plays and poetry, often challenging societal values and becoming an early proponent of women's rights. Sor Juana is heralded for her Respuesta a Sor Filotea, which defends women's rights to educational access, and is credited as the first published feminist of the New World. She died in Mexico in 1695.

“I don't study to know more, but to ignore less.”
–Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz

Her feast day is April 17.
