The Beloved Disciple

Today is the Feast of Saint John the Evangelist--the Beloved Disciple. Saint John actually gave himself that title; he called himself The Disciple whom Jesus loved.  Imagine having the level of faith that allows you to say that about yourself!

Can we say that we are the "disciple whom Jesus loved"--because, it's true.  We are.

Something to meditate on today.

Dymphna's favorite quotes

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
