Saint of the Day

St. Giles (8th century)
Born a noble, Giles used his wealth to help the poor. He became a hermit and lived in a cave. He was so admired that the French king built him a monastery for his followers, and Giles became its first abbott.

Reflections from the Saints

Not the goods of the world, but God. Not riches, but God. Not honors, but God. Not distinction, but God. Not dignities, but God. Not advancement, but God. God always and in everything.
– St. Vincent Pallotti

Life in Christ: Catechism #2388

Incest designates intimate relations between relatives or in-laws within a degree that prohibits marriage between them. St. Paul stigmatizes this especially grave offense: "It is actually reported that there is immorality among you... for a man is living with his father's wife...In the name of the Lord Jesus... you are to deliver this man to Satan for the destruction of the flesh..." Incest corrupts family relationships and marks a regression toward animality.
