    AC's Saint of the Day/Week

    http://mjjhoskin.wordpress.com/2010/...homas-cranmer/

    Saint of the Week: Thomas Cranmer
    28 03 2010
    Cranmer was to be last week’s saint, since his memorial was on Wednesday, March 24. But I kept doing other things in the evening and reading systematic theology during my spare time at work.

    Thomas Cranmer was born July 2, 1489, and was burned at the stake on March 21, 1556.On March 21, Cranmer was escorted to St. Mary’s Church where his public recantation was to take place. And there, Thomas Cranmer, like Latimer and Ridley before him, played the man, declaring, “And as for the Pope, I refuse him as Christ’s enemy and anti-Christ, with all his false doctrine. And as for the sacrament–” Here Cranmer was interrupted and taken away to be burned.As Cranmer burned, he thrust his right hand into the flames, holding there and saying, “This hand hath offended,” for that hand had signed his recantations. And so Thomas Cranmer, crafter of the Book of Common Prayer passed from this life to the next.

    just to knock prodo Wicca off front page - as good RCC

    The Constantinopolitan Creed of AD 381

    http://mjjhoskin.wordpress.com/class...eed-of-ad-381/


    My translation from the Greek of RPC Hanson, The Search for the Christian Doctrine of God, p. 877:

    We believe in one God, the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all that is, seen and unseen;

    and in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of god, begotten of the Father before all ages, light from light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, of one substance with the Father, through whom all things came to be;

    ......................
    and in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the life-giver, who proceeds from the Father, who with the Father and the Son is worshipped and glorified, who spoke through the prophets;
    ................Amen.

    -----------------------------------------------

    Now RW's comment comes to mind, except for Unitarians, if God laughed it is equilivant of three people laughing, as the above tale seems to say that there is 3 gods yet claiming only one god. Maybe God is laughing at us for taking such rubbish seriously.

    St. John the Apostle
    Feastday: December 27
    Patron of Asia Minor


    St. John, Apostle and Evangelist (Feast day - December 27th)

    St. John, the son of Zebedee, and the brother of St. James the Great, was called to be an Apostle by our Lord in the first year of His public ministry. He became the "beloved disciple" and the only one of the Twelve who did not forsake the Savior in the hour of His Passion. He stood faithfully at the cross when the Savior made him the guardian of His Mother. His later life was passed chiefly in Jerusalem and at Ephesus. He founded many churches in Asia Minor. He wrote the fourth Gospel, and three Epistles, and the Book of Revelation is also attributed to him. Brought to Rome, tradition relates that he was by order of Emperor Dometian cast into a cauldron of boiling oil but came forth unhurt and was banished to the island of Pathmos for a year.

    He lived to an extreme old age, surviving all his fellow apostles, and died at Ephesus about the year 100.


    St. John is called the Apostle of Charity, a virtue he had learned from his Divine Master, and which he constantly inculcated by word and example. The "beloved disciple" died at Ephesus, where a stately church was erected over his tomb. It was afterwards converted into a Mohammedan mosque.

    John is credited with the authorship of three epistles and one Gospel, although many scholars believe that the final editing of the Gospel was done by others shortly after his death. He is also supposed by many to be the author of the book of Revelation, also called the Apocalypse, although this identification is less certain.

    AC
    Now this is amazing, he was supposed cast into a cauldron of boiling oil and came out in one piece - he would be a good candidate for USA water-boarding etc to see if they could crack him. They could send him on special missions where tight lips are essential

    Now from Wiki: John the Apostle, (also known as the Apostle whom Jesus most loved or John the Beloved Disciple, (Ancient Greek: Ἰωάννης) (c. 6 - c. 100) - and from up above he lived to a extreme old age. When from wiki this was about 94 years old (less than my grandparents). Now this guy was a loyal saint yet he only lived to 94 YO, yet Noah was supposed to live to about 950 years old?
    why could not this guy live the Biblical 900 years? There is a hole in the bucket Dear Jono Dear Jono


    Now we also see that his church was converted into an Islamic mosque - how could Jesus let this happen to his only loyal saint? Not a very good look for Christianity I am agraid. Fancy those heretics getting the better of the One True Church!

    St. Raymond of Pennafort, Patron Saint of Canonists (Feast day - January 7) Born in Spain, St. Raymond was a relative of the King of Aragon................
    The brave religious of this Order devoted themselves to saving poor Christians captured by the Moors.

    Once he went with King James to the Island of Majorca to preach about Jesus. King James was a man of great qualities, but he let himself be ruled by passions. There on the Island, too, he was giving bad example. The Saint commanded him to send the woman away. The King said he would, but he did not keep his promise. So St. Raymond decided to leave the Island. The King declared he would punish any ship captain who brought the Saint back to Barcelona. Putting all his trust in God, Saint Raymond spread his cloak upon the water, tied up one corner of it to a stick for a sail, made the Sign of the Cross, stepped onto the cloak, and sailed along for six hours until he reached Barcelona. This miracle moved the King. He was sorry for what he had done, and he became a true follower of St. Raymond. St. Raymond was one hundred years old at the time of his death.

    The Catholic Church wishes to apologise due to their having allocated no saint for today, so any nominees are welcome

    I can't recall any non Catholics being made saints by the Church, maybe only Jesus, Mary and Joseph and the apostles except Peter, my namesake

    All the RCC's saints (incl in post 9) are being declared posthumously so be careful what you ask for.

    Who is St. Jude?
    St. Jude Thaddeus is the patron saint of hope.

    We turn to St. Jude in times of need and for serious or seemingly hopeless causes — including depression, grieving, unemployment, and illness — and ask for his divine intercession.

    In accordance with his surname, Thaddeus (which means generous, courageous, kind), Our Lord said, “He will show himself most willing to give help.”

    As difficult situations arise in your life you can always send your prayers and petitions to the altar of St. Jude at the National Shrine of St. Jude.

    St. Jude is traditionally depicted carrying the image of Jesus in his hand. This represents the imprint of the divine Countenance that was entrusted to him by Jesus. We are confident that our invocation of our most powerful patron, St. Jude, lifts our petitions to the God who always loves us.

    fascinating story

    Born at Lystra, Lycaenia, Timothy was the son of a Greek father and Eunice, a converted Jewess. He joined St. Paul when Paul preached at Lystra replacing Barnabas, and became Paul's close friend and confidant. Paul allowed him to be circumcised to placate the Jews, since he was the son of a Jewess, and he then accompanied Paul on his second missionary journey. When Paul was forced to flee Berea because of the enmity of the Jews there, Timothy remained, but after a time was sent to Thessalonica to report on the condition of the Christians there and to encourage them under persecution, a report that led to Paul's first letter to the Thessalonians when he joined Timothy at Corinth. Timothy and Erastus were sent to Macedonia in 58, went to Corinth to remind the Corinthians of Paul's teaching, and then accompanied Paul into Macedonia and Achaia. Timothy was probably with Paul when the Apostle was imprisoned at Caesarea and then Rome, and was himself imprisoned but then freed. According to tradition, he went to Ephesus, became its first bishop, and was stoned to death there when he opposed the pagan festival of Katagogian in honor of Diana. Paul wrote two letters to Timothy, one written about 65 from Macedonia and the second from Rome while he was in prison awaiting execution. His feast day is January 26.

    Thanks AC. Whether or not you are married - I saw the shoutbox late yesterday - I still did not know that Jan 26 was St Timothy day. I appreciate that increase of my knowledge. Good night / morning.
