The Armor of Love

From a Sermon by St. Fulgentius of Ruspe:

And so the love that brought Christ from heaven to earth raised Stephen from earth to heaven; shown first in the king, it later shone forth in his soldier. Love was Stephen’s weapon by which he gained every battle, and so won the crown signified by his name. His love of God kept him from yielding to the ferocious mob; his love for his neighbour made him pray for those who were stoning him. Love inspired him to reprove those who erred, to make them amend; love led him to pray for those who stoned him, to save them from punishment. Strengthened by the power of his love, he overcame the raging cruelty of Saul and won his persecutor on earth as his companion in heaven. In his holy and tireless love he longed to gain by prayer those whom he could not convert by admonition.

Armor up.

Merry Christmas, everyone.  Just coming up for air.  Christmas bustle and all.

    Thank you Father Angelo & all the friars and sisters! “Mary” Christmas to all of you! :) I am so grateful for your website, airmaria.com. I just love it. It is my “home” on the web in a special way. It is a clean & sober Catholic website I can count on each time I bring it up on my computer – always true and always edifying. Nothing wierd or flaky or outside the teachings of the Church. I don’t mess with other websites, except a few others that are good and solid Catholic. Thanks be to God for airmaria.com. Ave Maria!
