Pili Piñero
May 26th: Memorial of Saint Philip Neri, Priest
Gospel text
Jn 17,20-26
Jesus said, «I pray not only for these but also for those who through their word will believe in me. May they all be one».
Gospel's Commentary
Today, leafing through the biography of St Philip, in fact, one is surprised and fascinated by the cheerful and relaxed method he used to educate, supporting each person with fraternal generosity and patience. As is well known, the saint used to put his teaching into short and wise maxims: «Be good, if you can»; «Be simple and humble»; «He who does not pray is a speechless animal»… —St Philip appears as the “prophet of joy”, who had decided to follow Jesus, even while being actively involved in the culture of his time.
