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:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liber_Gomorrhianus
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.

  2. Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of the faithful, (who have become weary and complacent) place in them the FIRE of Your Love, that they may be created (rise from their slumber) and renew the face of the earth.

  3. In around 1017 it was the monks with depraved habits, in 2017 it is the NCW with their lies and deceptions.

    St. Romuald pray for us.....

    1. As much as I'd like to blame them, if we did, we'd be lying and deceiving ourselves. The NCW was just a fungus that grew on an already diseased body. And if we are not honest with ourselves about the source of the disease, all of this will be for NOTHING.

  4. its true the NCW is best symbolized as a fungus that only spread because the body,the Archdiocese of Agana,was a sick instituation. I knew that. Guam was fertile ground for them to take over. Even now just look at the local clergy not united competing with each other. Neo as much as we dislike them are united in numbers with a vision. That makes them stronger to continue spreading their vile fungus throughout Guam.
