These Two were One

June 29

June 29

 Feast of Sts. Peter and Paul, Apostles

Both apostles share the same feast day, for these two were one; and even though they suffered on different days, they were as one. Peter went first, and Paul followed. And so we celebrate this day made holy for us by the apostle’s blood.

The Mother of God

June 27

June 27

Feast of St. Cyril of Alexandria , Bishop (D. 444)

That anyone could doubt the right of the holy Virgin to be called the Mother of God fills me with astonishment. Surely she must be the Mother of God if our Lord Jesus Christ is God, and she gave birth to him! Our Lord’s disciples may not have used those exact words, but they delivered to us the belief those words enshrine, and this has also been taught us by the holy fathers.

                                                                        -St. Cyril of Alexandria

Grace

June 26

How often have I thought that I may owe all the graces I’ve received to the prayers of a person who begged them from God for me, and whom I shall know only in heaven.

What is my "Hammer"?

June 21

June 23

Feast of St. Aloysius Gonzaga

I am but a crooked piece of iron and have come into religion to be made straight by the hammer of mortification and penance.
