Nov 10: St Leo the Great, Pope & Doctor of the Church

“Although the universal Church of God is constituted of distinct orders of members, still, in spite of the many parts of its holy body, the Church subsists as an integral whole, just as the Apostle says: We are all one in Christ. No difference in office is so great that anyone can be separated, through lowliness, from the head. In the unity of faith and baptism, therefore, our community is undivided. There is a common dignity, as the apostle Peter says in these words: ‘And you are built up as living stones into spiritual houses, a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices which are acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.’ And again: ‘But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people set apart.'” ~St. Leo the Great

St. Leo, pray for us.
