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

Abbey of Saint-Joseph de Clairval in Flavigny

Here's something for everyone - the Abbey of Saint-Joseph de Clairval in Flavigny (France) mails out a wonderful "spiritual letter" each month, to anyone anywhere in the world, for FREE. I've been getting it for a few years now, thanks to a tip from a good priest friend of mine, and have meant to mention it on the blog for awhile... I just got this month's in the mail today, and since I opened my mail while I was sitting at my computer desk, here I am blogging about it at last.

Each monthly mailing uses the life story of a saint or devout Catholic to begin a spiritual letter that speaks to all of us on the issues of our time and daily life. It is well written (they must have a very good English translator in the Abbey!) You can read a sample of what they send out each month here (from Christmas 2005).

Check it out, and put your name on the list today to get yours each month! (They don't advertise or do anything with the addresses on their list, other than send the monthly mailing - no worries, I've never gotten any additional mail, religious or otherwise, from being on their list.)
