Saint of the Day

St. Lucy (283-304)
Lucy was born to a noble Greek family, brought up as a Christian by her mother, Eutychia. After her mother's miraculous cure at a shrine, Lucy made a vow of virginity and gave her riches to the poor. Angered by this, the man to whom she had been unwillingly betrothed denounced her to the Governor of Sicily. Condemned to a sentence of forced prostitution, she stood immovable and could not be dragged away, even by a team of oxen. Instead, the Governor had her tortured and killed.

Life in Christ: Catechism #2526

So called moral permissiveness rests on an erroneous conception of human freedom; the necessary precondition for the development of true freedom is to let oneself be educated in the moral law. Those in charge of education can reasonably be expected to give young people instruction respectful of the truth, the qualities of the heart, and the moral and spiritual dignity of man.
