Saint of the Day

King St. Oswald of Northumbria (605-642)
While exiled, Oswald converted. He reconquered his country from the Britons, erecting on the battlefield a wooden cross that proved to be miraculous. He built up a great kingdom, and with the aid of St. Aidan introduced Christianity, founding many churches and monasteries. He died in battle against a pagan king.

Reflections from the Saints

We should consider those moments spent before the Blessed Sacrament as the happiest of our lives.

Life in Christ: Catechism #2358

The number of men and women who have deep-seated homosexual tendencies is not negligible. This inclination, which is objectively disordered, constitutes for most of them a trial. They must be accepted with respect, compassion, and sensitivity. Every sign of unjust discrimination in their regard should be avoided. These persons are called to fulfill God's will in their lives and, if they are Christians, to unite to the sacrifice of the Lord's Cross the difficulties they may encounter from their condition.
