Our Hero, Athanasius preaches on guarding the purity and beauty of our Faith!
this is yesterday's sermon. .....
more later [OK it's later!!] His Excellency states a number of points made in his book, Dominus Est. His emphasis is upon the example of St. Paul and who Paul thought protecting the purity of the Gospel message was so important that he called a curse upon anyone who took it upon themselves to tamper with it.
Bishop Schneider warned that people who want to preserve the Church's beauty and purity can expect a lot of trouble from the world, and they should not suprised when they are persecuted by those within the Church. He brings up the example of his own patron saint, Athanasius who fought with an overwhelming number of Arian priests and bishops who were within the Church.
The Bishop spends some time discussing the fallen Soviet Union and how it successfully blew up many church buildings but was never able to blow up the Church as it lived in the hearts of simple lay people.
