Since faith is one, it must be professed in all its purity and integrity". Pope Francis/Pope Benedict

Happy Feast Day of St. Irenaeus: a lover of truth and doctrine!

Today is the feast day of the great early Church father, St. Irenaeus of Lyon. Our saint heard the Faith being taught by St. Polycarp, who, in turn was a disciple of St. John the Apostle. Irenaeus was a lover of doctrine and truth. Let us always cling to this! God is Love, yes. But God is also Truth. There can be no true love, without knowing God, His truth and Jesus Christ. 

"Christ, who was called the Son of God before the ages, was manifested in the fullness of time, in order that He might cleanse us through His blood, who were under the power of sin, presenting us as pure sons to His Father, if we yield ourselves obediently to the chastisement of the Spirit. And in the end of time He shall come to do away with all evil, and to reconcile all things, in order that there may be an end of all impurities".
