Thought for the Day – 2 May – Wednesday of the Fifth Week of Easter and the Memorial of St Athanasius (c295-373) – Father and Doctor of the Church “The Father of Orthodoxy”
Athanasius suffered many trials while he was bishop of Alexandria. He was given the grace to remain strong against what probably seemed at times to be insurmountable opposition. Athanasius lived his office as bishop completely. He defended the true faith for his flock, regardless of the cost to himself. In today’s world we are experiencing this same call to remain true to our faith, no matter what.
St Athanasius, pray for us!
