LOVED THIS. Insightful and inspiring
article by Sr. Helena Burns.
Everyone is Called to Marriage —-No one is
called to be all alone.
We are called to be with God and
others according to our vocation… We’re
all heading to the wedding feast of heaven;
we’re all “engaged” to God.

St. GeorgeSt. George (d. 303 AD) was a soldier in the Roman army and one of the most venerated saints of antiquity. Many fantastical legends are ascribed to him, however, none are known to be true with any certainty. The strong historical cult surrounding him proves that he was a highly venerated saint, and many early churches were dedicated in his honor. The best known legend is St. George and the Dragon, where St. George, after making the sign of the cross, saved the king’s daughter from being killed by the town’s menacing dragon. Through his feat he converted many souls to God, by leading them to accept baptism, and by admonishing the king to support the cause of the Church. What is known with certainty is that St. George was martyred in Lydda in Palestine during the persecution of Diocletian. St. George is the patron of many causes and countries including soldiers, knights, chivalry, horsemen, farmers, Canada, England, and Germany, to name a few. His feast day is April 23.

The Church… intends to continue to raise her voice in defense of mankind, even when policies of States and the majority of public opinion moves in the opposite direction. Truth, indeed, draws strength from itself and not from the amount of consent it arouses.

Temptation to a certain sin, to any sin whatsoever, might last throughout our whole life, yet it can never make us displeasing to God’s Majesty provided we do not take pleasure in it and give consent to it. You must have great courage in the midst of temptation. Never think yourself overcome as long as they are displeasing to you, keeping clearly in mind the difference between feeling temptation and consenting to it
