Saint of the Day

St. Paul the Apostle (1st century)
Saul was a Jew who hated and persecuted the first Christians. Once, while travelling, he was thrown from his horse, blinded by a light, and given a message from Christ Himself. Profoundly affected by the experience, he converted to Christianity. He was baptized, changed his name to Paul, and began travelling and preaching. He wrote several letters now found in Sacred Scripture. After being imprisoned several times, he was beheaded in Rome.

Reflections from the Saints

God did not give us a spirit of cowardice but rather of power and love and self-control. So do not be ashamed of your testimony to our Lord.
– St. Paul the Apostle

Life in Christ: Catechism #2108

The right to religious liberty is neither a moral license to adhere to error, nor a supposed right to error, but rather a natural right of the human person to civil liberty, i.e., immunity, within just limits, from external constraint in religious matters by political authorities. This natural right ought to be acknowledged in the juridical order of society in such a way that it constitutes a civil right.
