OCTOBER 11 – BLESSED ELIAS DEL SOCCORO, O.S.A.
“What a great thing charity is! The soul of the scriptures, the force of prophecy, the saving power of the sacraments, the fruit of faith, the wealth of the poor, the life of the dying. What could be more magnanimous than to die for the godless, what more kindly than to love one’s enemies?”
Sermon 350, 2-3
