Thursday 9/17/2020 MEMORIAL OF ROBERT BELLARMINE, BISHOP, DOCTOR OF THE CHURCH

Live in peace to rest in peace

Today is the Memorial of Saint Robert Bellarmine, a Jesuit theologian and doctor of the church. His scholarly work inserted him into a number of the controversies of his day (late 1500s to early 1600s). One of his many works still in publication is The Art of Dying Well, whose advice starts with the concept that dying well (in peace, connected to God) depends on living well. Take a cue from this brilliant saint and contemplate whether you need to make changes to be living well by Christian standards. It’s never too late to get right with God.

Today’s readings: 1 Corinthians 15:1-11; Luke 7:36-50 (446).

But he said to the woman, ‘Your faith has saved you; go in peace.’”
