Veritatis Splendor

"Keep your eyes fixed upon Jesus, who inspires and perfects our faith" --Hebrews 12:2

Pope Benedict XVI before our Lord

And only where God is seen does life truly begin. Only when we meet the living God in Christ do we know what life is. We are not some casual and meaningless product of evolution.
Each of us is the result of a thought of God.
Each of us is willed,
each of us is loved,
each of us is necessary.
There is nothing more beautiful than to be surprised by the Gospel, by the encounter with Christ. There is nothing more beautiful than to know Him and to speak to others of our friendship with Him.
~Pope Benedict XVI, Homily April 24th, 2005

God Love You!

Just got word about a great new online resource - the Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen Audio Library and Catholic Resources website!

Listen to hundreds of the good archbishop's lively and interesting talks about living faith in daily life - and as relevant now as it ever was when he first spoke them, half a century ago! I love listening to Archbishop Sheen, particularly as my nightime listening before going to bed.

And, word is, he's on his way to being a canonized saint! God-willing, I sure hope so...

There is no reason for the fallen to be discouraged. Hope is the message of Golgotha. Find a higher love than the flesh, a love pure, understanding, and redeeming, and the struggle will be easy. The higher love is on the Cross and beneath it.

We almost seem to forget that there is a Cross at all. He begins to look more like a red rose, and she begins to look like the stem. The stem reaches down from Calvary into all our wounded hearts of the earth, sucking up our prayers and petitions and conveying them to Him. That is why roses have thorns in this life - to keep away every disturbing influence that might destroy our union with Jesus and Mary.
~Ven. Fulton J. Sheen
