Thought for the Day – 4 December
John defended the Church’s understanding of the veneration of images and explained the faith of the Church in several other controversies.
For over 30 years, he combined a life of prayer with these defenses and his other writings.
His holiness expressed itself in putting his literary and preaching talents at the service of the Lord.
And so too, we have been graced with talents – many and varied – for what purpose BUT to use them at the service of the Lord!
St John Damascene Pray for us!
