The Way of The Saints
Posted by Supertradmum
We live in times some of us did not expect to witness. Some of us did.
Those of us who read the works of great minds of the past knew that these times would come upon us.
My mother lived through WWII and my dad fought in that war. They experienced much hardship and suffering which most people my age did not have to endure.
Three generations have passed since then and most of those in the Boomers, Gen X and Millennials did not have to suffer the great violence we are now witnessing in the world.
The Millennials will have to learn how to suffer and endure. The only way to do this is to become more than just "right with God", one has to become holy.
This blog has been dedicated to help all of us become holy.
This blog has used the best minds and souls in the Church to point the way to holiness.
What we have witnessed in France will not be isolated. Those who want to destroy what was once Christendom, the West, hate civilization and all it represents-liberal arts, fine arts. music, gracefulness, beauty.
When we create beauty, we are acting as we should as being created in the image and likeness of God.
God is Beauty, Truth, Peace, Glory and all of those creations which reflect His Being have been passed down in the West.
Western education began because of the great heritage of the Greeks, the Romans and the Catholics, who invented grammar schools, the Trivium and Quadrivium.
The Church encouraged painting, sculpture, music, architecture and drama. The great cathedrals and work of art in the West reflect the patronage of the Church.
Those who hate Christ and His Church hate beauty as they hate life.
Pray for yourselves and your closest ones to not only endure but overcome ugliness, violence, hatred.
Such is the way of the saints.
