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

Norbertines Feast Day!

Today, June 6th, is the feast day of St. Norbert, and day of rejoicing for the Premonstratensian order (commonly called the Norbertines).

I got to know a few of the Norbertines from St. Michael's Abbey while studying at the Angelicum in Rome last year, and was greatly impressed at their spiritual maturity and fidelity to the Church - and by their beautiful singing charism! I joined them in the singing of the Angelus daily at school, and am happy to report that I continue to sing it in the same way daily now that I am home, always mindful when I do of where I learned it from. (Hear a sampling of their music online!)
