                                            Una Voce Enfield
                           Traditional Latin Mass every Sunday 12:00 Noon
                                  St. Martha Catholic Church Enfield Ct

                                                   St Athanasius 
                                      Bishop and Doctor of the Church
                        From the liturgical year vol. 8 May 2nd Abbot Gueranger
The court of our divine King, during this grandest of seasons, is brilliant beyond measure; and to-day, it is gladdened by the arrival of one of the most glorious champions that ever fought for His holy cause. Among the guardians of the Word of truth, confided by Jesus to the earth, is there one more faithful than Athanasius? Does not his very name remind us of dauntless courage in the defense of the sacred deposit, of heroic firmness and patience in suffering, of learning, of talent, of eloquence--in a word, of everything that goes to form a Saint, a Bishop, and a Doctor of the Church? Athanasius lived for the Son of God; the cause of the Son of God was that of Athanasius; he who blessed Athanasius blessed the eternal Word; and he who insulted Athanasius insulted the eternal Word.
                         The Month of May is upon us.
Oh Holy Mary ever Virgin and conceived without sin; pray for us that have recourse to thee.
