Happy Monday Saints! To start our week off right, our Campus Minister, Father James Dalton, will share a story of a Saint, along with a reflection to help us consider how we can learn from their examples. ⠀ ⠀ We place our spotlight today on Saint Leo the Great (400 to 461 AD). Pope Benedict XVI said that Leo’s papacy was “undoubtedly one of the most important in the Church’s history.” Let us look at the facts behind Pope Benedict XVI’s words… ⠀ ⠀ Some believe the term “Great” was earned when Pope Leo stopped the forces under Attila the Hun from sacking the city of Rome in 452. The High Renaissance artist Raphael painted the fresco of Pope Leo and Attila the Hun for the Vatican in the sixteenth century. Look at the details in the painting found in the image below. Find the two Cardinals. Notice Pope Leo on a white horse and Attila the Hun on a dark horse with his arms holding the barbarian forces back. Yet, this was not Pope Leo’s only achievement. ⠀ Pope Leo has been declared a “Doctor of the Church,” due in part to the Tome of Leo, a document which was a major foundation to the debates of the Ecumenical Council of Chalcedon (451 AD), which dealt primarily with the orthodox definition of Christ’s being as the hypostatic union of two natures, divine and human, united in one person “with neither confusion nor division.” The two Councils, First Nicaea (325 AD) and Chalcedon provide the fundamental Christian teaching on the Trinity. ⠀ ⠀ There is more – Pope Leo asserted the universal jurisdiction of the Pope as the Bishop of Rome. Based on scripture, the Church is built upon Peter, the first Bishop of Rome. Every bishop is charged with the care of his particular flock, the Roman pontiff is charge with the care of the whole Church. ⠀ ⠀ You can learn more about Saint Leo the Great here: https://loom.ly/2oEmEkk ⠀ ⠀ Saint Leo the Great, pray for us.

Happy Monday Saints! To start our week off right, our Campus Minister, Father James Dalton, will share a story of a Saint, along with a reflection to help us consider how we can learn from their examples. ⠀ ⠀ Our school bears the name of a young Italian virgin-martyr, St. Maria Goretti. St. Maria Goretti was born to a farming family. When her father died when she was nine, Maria took over household duties (cooking, sewing, cleaning) while her mother, brothers, and sister worked in the fields. ⠀ ⠀ The family had to share a house with another family, the Serenellis. One afternoon when St. Maria was twelve, Alessandro, the Serenellis’ twenty-year-old son, made sexual advances to her. When she refused to submit to him, Alessandro stabbed her fourteen times. Maria was taken to the hospital, where she died forgiving him. He was arrested, convicted, and jailed. During imprisonment, he repented. Maria was beatified in 1947, and canonized in 1950. ⠀ ⠀ You can learn more about Saint Maria Goretti Here: https://loom.ly/T1T18pM ⠀ ⠀ Saint Maria Goretti, pray for us.
