Words to Live by – from Catholic Tradition
Here is how St. Thomas Aquinas, greatest Doctor of the Catholic Church, depicts the fight between good and evil at the end of the world, quoting the Father of the Church, Theophylactus:
In the persecution by the Anti-Christ, let no one seek to protect his own life, for he will lose it. But he who exposes himself to danger and death will save his soul, never submitting himself to the tyrant, out of love for his life.
Catena Aurea on St. Luke’s Gospel, Ch.17, §9.
Let us face the tyranny of our times with this same firm resolution!
