THE BISHOP OF ROME

What separates him from the other bishops


Events that happened this day in Church History

   On this date 1560 years ago in 439, Saint Isaac the Great passed on to his Heavenly reward. The holy monk Isaac was a bishop who founded the Armenian Church which returned to union with Rome through the efforts of Pope John Paul II and the late Patriarch Catholicos Karekin I in March this year. The Holy Father had wanted to visit Armenia this past summer but his health and the health of Karekin, who died in late June.

Historical Events in Church Annals for September 9:


SIMPLY SHEEN:
Rebellion in remorse

    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".

"When an egotist begins to see that he is to blame for his condition, there is apt to be a moment which exasperates him into open rebellion; at this stage, the egotist is not immoral in action; he is anti-moral and anti-religious in his attitudes, words and thoughts."
