A long time ago, I stood in front of this statue of St. Cecilia, terribly moved by her grace in death.
Psalm 116 Douay-Rheims
116 O praise the Lord, all ye nations: praise him, all ye people.
2 For his mercy is confirmed upon us: and the truth of the Lord remaineth for ever.
2 Peter 1:10-11Douay-Rheims
10 Wherefore, brethren, labour the more, that by good works you may make sure your calling and election. For doing these things, you shall not sin at any time.
11 For so an entrance shall be ministered to you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
I was ready to give up speaking with people here and these words humbled and convicted me to go on. Our calling, our election leads to our sharing the real Gospel of Christ, found in and through the Catholic Church.
