Fr Jim Norris was one Priest that helped discern the way to greater love, and it's true meaning to me. There are different ways of course, free will is part of God's design for the human race and we often ask why. Fr Kelly, said "because God wants human beings not mules". You have to read that with an Irish accent.
The monastic life and my experiences is something I will have to write about. Stability is my pet subject at the moment.
Memorial of Saint Irenaeus, Bishop and Martyr Lectionary: 375St. Irenaeus was born in Asia Minor around the year 140. It is not known when he came to Gaul. He was a priest of the Church of Lyons during the persecution of 177 when St. Pothinus, first bishop of the city and the first martyr of Lyons, was put to death. Irenaeus succeeded him as bishop and twenty-five years later was martyred in his turn during a fresh persecution. At a time when Gnostic sects threatened to undermine Christianity by a perversion of Christian thought, St. Irenaeus vigorously denounced all heresies and safeguarded unity of belief by laying down the principles of the doctrinal tradition of the Church.
