THE SAINT OF THE DAY...AND FOR OUR DAY

A monk who stood up to other monks. A monk who obviously cared more about TRUTH over "peace."


For those in need of a little history, St. Peter Damian penned the infamous Book of Gomorrah a few years after Romuald's death:

In this, Petrus Damiani made an attack on homosexual practices, mutual masturbation, copulation between the thighs, anal copulation and solitary masturbation,[1] as subversive disruptions against the moral order occasioned by the madness associated with an excess of lust. He was especially indignant about priests having sexual relationships with adolescent boys. He singles out superiors who, due to excessive and misplaced piety, have been lax in their duty to uphold church discipline. He opposes the ordination of those who engage in homosexual sex and wants those already ordained dismissed from Holy Orders. Those who misuse the sacraments to defile boys are treated with particular contempt.
