'Lex orandi, lex credendi' ; in other words, the way we pray is the way we believe... This line is from a post of Padraig's from almost four years ago. It highlights the fact that if one went to daily Mass for the three years of the liturgical cycle, then one would discover the truths of the Catholic Faith so as to convincingly respond to most of her critics. For instance, to those who claim we teach that salvation is by works, then listen to the Collect from this past Wednesday: O God, strength of those who hope in you, graciously hear our pleas, and, since without you human frailty can do nothing, grant us always the help of your grace, that in following your commands we may please you by our resolve and our deeds. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son... Redemption's goal was not just to save us, but to form us as God's obedient children! Thank you Lord God and Mother Church for the prayers of Holy Mass! Alleluia! Safe in the Barque of Peter!
