|St. Thomas Becket|
"Remember then how our Fathers worked out their salvation; remember the sufferings through which the Church has grown, and the storms the ship of Peter has weathered because it has Christ on board. Remember how the crown was attained by those whose sufferings gave new radiance to their faith. The whole company of saints bears witness to the unfailing truth that without real effort no one wins the crown."
(From the Office of Readings, December 29th, a letter by St.Thomas Becket, bishop)
Words of Faith for those in anticipation, and words of Faith for the new year, the new dawn, and the new day of ecclesial communion for the Church in the United States.
As we pray, watch and wait, more to come!
Venite, Adoremus Dominum!
