question for the day

By Diogenes (articles ) | Apr 11, 2008

As we celebrate the feast of St. Stanislaus, patron of Poland, I can't help wondering whether he was comfortable when he rebuked King Boleslaw.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    Wonder if these were comfortable: St. Martin, martyred when he censured imperial documents which professed a heterodox teaching? (Apr 13) OR, Eustace, martyred for refusing to eat meat on a day of abstinence (Apr 14). OR, Ruadhan who cursed a King for violating the sanctuary of his monastery? (Apri 15). OR, Bernadette (Apr 16) who said: "The more I am crucified, the more I rejoice." OR, Mappalicus (Apr 17) martyred for refusing to sacrifice to the pagan gods. [Bet they're comfortable now!!!]

    Is the furnishing of episcopal comfort a corporal or spiritual work of mercy?
