Saint Quote of the Day 7/1/13

Monday, July 01, 2013

I am exhorting the brethren to constancy and not to abandon their flocks, but to imitate the pastors of the first three centuries and withdraw to some corner of their districts until the storm passes. I shall retire to a hut in some wood or mountain in my diocese with some candles and books…We shall not abandon our flocks unless compelled to do so, we shall first try out the prisons and other torments, already we have suffered so much on the mountains, in huts and in caves, and have acquired the habit of suffering to the extent that it will be less inconvenient in the future…For if the captains fly, it is in vain to exhort the single soldiers to stand in battle.


-- Saint Oliver Plunkett

    Sounds like living through a martyrdom.

    What faith this Saint has and what he must have endured in his days.
