Can We Hear the Prophets?

NY state has decided that what the Scriptures call an abomination is now to be classified as that which is holy – the sacrament of marriage. Isaiah warned of times when good is called evil, and evil is called good. The dire warnings of the prophets are on the horizon, creation groans and those who hunger for holiness can feel the birth pains.

Being Christian

Ancient wisdom from St Gregory of Nyssa (in today's Office of Readings):

If we are not to lie when we call ourselves "Christians," we must bear witness to it by our way of living.

God our Father

Pertinent thoughts from St Cyprian in today's Office of Readings:

We should bear in mind and realize that when we call God our Father we ought also to act like sons. If we are pleased to call him Father, let him in turn be pleased to call us sons. We should live like the temples of God we are, so that it can be seen that God lives in us. No act of ours should be unworthy of the Spirit....

Wisdom from St Anthony

Today is the memorial of St Anthony of Padua, a Franciscan and great preacher. Think about his words:

For if we want to have our own way always, aren't we really seeking our reward here below in the things of this life? Let us couple patience and long-suffering in the spirit of meekness and faith (and so bring forth fruit in patience)!

St Anthony, Ora Pro Nobis
