Wander not into the myths

    In his column today, Pat Ludwa informs us of the inaccuracies and misconceptions of "Sola Scriptura" for the Sacred Scriptures are not solely the means to salvation. He warns about "Bible Study" groups who endeavor to interpret the Word from their own limited knowledge. He points out how we must be on our guard not to interpret the Bible as we think but to depend on those qualified and approved Fathers and Doctors of the Church who, through the discernment of the Holy Spirit, have been able to convey to God's people the meaning intended in Sacred Scripture. He shows how anything can be twisted and turned to suit someone's agenda, rationalizing something that is not intended. This holds true for the Bible and if it were left to the individual to interpret we would have total anarchy and spiritual gridlock, especially in these times which Saint Timothy warns that "the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own likings, and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander into myths."

Biblical illiteracy

We control the weather within

      They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but the words of Bishop Fulton J. Sheen have been known to launch a thousand images in one's mind, one of the ways this late luminary did so much to evangelize the faith. Because of the urgency of the times and because few there are today who possess the wisdom, simplicity and insight than the late Archbishop who touched millions, we are bringing you daily gems from his writings. The good bishop makes it so simple that we have dubbed this daily series: "SIMPLY SHEEN".

"Each one of us makes his own weather, determines the color of the skies in the emotional universe which he inhabits. We can, by a creative effort, bring such sunlight to our souls that it makes radieant whatever events may come our way. We can, on the other hand, permit ourselves to slump into a state of inner depression so deep and filled with gloom that only the most intense outward stimulations of the senses are able to rouse us from our apathy."

"Then Jesus stopped and commanded that he should be brought to Him. And when he drew near He asked him, saying, 'What wouldst thou have Me do for thee?' And he said, 'Lord, that I may see.' And Jesus said to him, 'Receive thy sight, thy faith has saved thee.' And at once he received his sight, and followed Him, glorifying God. And all the people upon seeing it gave praise to God."

Luke 17: 1-4
