Words to Live by – from Catholic Tradition


Let us be fearless in defending the truth!  Here is how St. Thomas Aquinas, greatest Doctor of the Catholic Church, explains this zeal we should have, quoting Alcuin, Father of the Church:


Zeal, in the good sense of the word, is a certain fervor of soul, by which we set aside all human fear, for the sake of defending the Truth.


Catena Aurea on St. John’s Gospel, St. Thomas Aquinas, quoting Alcuin, ch.2, §4.

Catholic Candle note: To assist parents in homeschooling, we call your attention to a new Traditional Catholic homeschool which is now accessible worldwide.  Here is some information about this homeschool:

Angelic Doctor Academy

We would like to introduce Angelic Doctor Academy, a Traditional Catholic homeschool for grades 9 – 12 (lower grades coming soon).  We think Traditional Catholics will appreciate our unique and militantly Traditional Catholic curriculum.  We have written many new textbooks because we saw the problems in many books commonly used, whether they were history, science, or in other disciplines.  We think Catholic parents – especially busy mothers – will appreciate our unique grading system in which we correct everything, including handwritten essays.  This allows the parents to concentrate on teaching, explaining, and keeping order.   Please visit to learn more.   Mention that you are a Catholic Candle subscriber for a 10% discount on materials.  Thank you!
