Saint of the Day Quote: Saint Wilfrid

“But as for you and your companions, you certainly sin, if, having heard the decrees of the Apostolic see, nay, of the universal Church, confirmed,
as they are, by Holy Scripture, you scorn to follow them; for, though your fathers were holy, do you think that those few men, in a corner of the
remotest island, are to be preferred before the universal Church of Christ throughout the world? And if that Columba of yours, (and, I may say, ours
also, if he was Christ’s servant,) was a holy man and powerful in miracles, yet could he be preferred before the most blessed chief of the
Apostles, to whom our Lord said, ‘Thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my Church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it,
and I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of Heaven?’ ”

Saint of the Day Quote: Saint Francis of Assisi

Beginning of a new series.

 

O how glorious and holy and great to have a Father in heaven! O how holy, fair, and lovable to have a spouse in heaven!

O how holy and how beloved, well pleasing and humble, peaceful and sweet and desirable above all to have such a brother who has laid down His life for His sheep, and

Who has prayed for us to the Father,

Saint Francis of Assisi, Letter to All the Faithful (1215)
