Today in the reading from the Book of Ecclesiastes we are all reminded of the shortness of our lives, the temporary nature of our earthly existence, and how we are reminded not to lose ourselves in the pursuit of worldly matters and pleasures. Throughout history, we have seen how greed and attachment to desire have led to conflicts that rage in wars and conquests, in the exploitation of the weak, the vulnerable, and those who are poor and sick.
Today we celebrate the feast of St. Cosmas and St. Damian, renowned saints, who were physicians by trade and according to some traditions, were twin brothers . These two saints are named in the extended text of Eucharistic Prayer 1 in the Mass.
Let us look upon the examples of these our holy predecessors to help guide us in what we should do in order to be faithful to God. They lived through the difficult years for the Christian faith, as the Roman Empire and its administration persecuted all Christians, trying to force them to abandon their faith on the pain of death. Cosmas and Damien were renowned for their services as physicians, caring for the needs of the sick and afflicted. Most notably, they refused to accept any payment or returns for their services, which they offered voluntarily with much love and great care for those whom they treated.
It was told that miracles even happened as there were those who were miraculously healed by their intercession.
In spite of being persecuted and tortured St. Cosmas and St. Damian remained faithful and chose to suffer, dying martyrs' deaths.
Let us all look upon the exemplary faith of these two saints who were so generous in love and compassion, putting God and their fellow brothers and sisters above their own needs and desires.
"Teach me to serve you as you deserve; to give and not to count the cost; to fight and not to heed the wounds; to toil and not to seek for rest; to labour and ask not for reward, save that of knowing that I do your most holy will.” St Ignatius of Loyola
