Thanks as always for the discussion this morning. Saints, one an all! Here are some links to things referred to this week:
- Canonization – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canonization
- Criteria for sainthood in RC Church: http://www.dummies.com/how-to/content/what-are-the-requirements-for-sainthood.html
- Dietrich Bonhoeffer: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dietrich_Bonhoeffer
- The Cost of Discipleship (Bonhoeffer) Phil recommends: http://www.goodreads.com/author/show/29333.Dietrich_Bonhoeffer
- Dame Julian of Norwich ( pronounced NOR-itch): http://justus.anglican.org/resources/bio/154.html
- And here’s a quote attributed to St Teresa of Avila, who we read about today teaching her nuns to dance for joy,
“Christ has no body now, but yours.
No hands, no feet on earth, but yours.
Yours are the eyes through which
Christ looks compassion into the world.
Yours are the feet
with which Christ walks to do good.
Yours are the hands
with which Christ blesses the world.“
Are there things we can learn (or relearn) from the saints in books and the saints in our lives?
