Quote of the day: 23 January

I am glad to point this exemplary figure out to the whole Church particularly because [Saint Nuno de Santa Maria] exercised his life of faith and prayer in contexts apparently unfavorable to it, as proof that in any situation, even military or in wartime, it is possible to act and to put into practice the values and principles of Christian life, especially if they are placed at the service of the common good and the glory of God.

Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI
Canonization Homily, Saint Nuno De Santa Maria Álvares Pereira (1360-1431)
