Communio

…bearing with one another in love, making every effort to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.

St Thomas Becket

St Thomas Becket

“A martyrdom is never the design of man; for the true martyr is he who has become the instrument of God, who has lost his will in the will of God, not lost it but found it, for he has found freedom in submission to God. The martyr no longer desires anything for himself, not even the glory of martyrdom. So thus as on earth the Church mourns and rejoices at once, in a fashion that the world cannot understand; so in Heaven the Saints are most high, having made themselves most low, seeing themselves not as we see them, but in the light of the Godhead from which they draw their being.” (Archbishop’s Sermon, “Murder in the Cathedral” by T.S. Eliot)
