On this day in 1517 Martin Luther nailed in the door of the Castle Church in Wittenberg his 95 theses. That symbolic act changed the church and the history of Western Europe forever. The OLSX have become the nails and the living arguments against an institutional church that has lost its credibility and moral compass. The church will not be the same again.

St. Teresa of Jesus (of Avila)
“The important thing is not to think much but to love much”.
“The soul's progress does not lie in thinking much but in loving much”.
“Let nothing trouble you, let nothing frighten you. All things are passing; God never changes”

We will remember her on the 15 October.

Francis of Assisi
Today we remember this wonderful man of God.

“Lord, make me an instrument of your peace,
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
where there is sadness, joy;

O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek
to be consoled as to console;
to be understood as to understand;
to be loved as to love.

For it is in giving that we receive;
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life”
