Thought for the Day – 19 December
In a very short pontificate – just around 4 years – St Pope Anastasius I faced two big problems. The first was Origen and the second the Donatists. He dealt with them both effectively by conference with his brother Bishops, to confirm his own understanding.
It is not unlike the situations we ourselves face on a daily basis, living as we do in a secular society. And how do we resolve such issues – we are not all theologians/apologists or debaters?
We have everything we need in the Catechism of the Catholic Church – every single answer is there! Do you own a copy? It should be by now rather well-worn!
St Pope Anastasius I Pray for us!
