What's My Eschatology?

| | Comments (1)

I found this quiz over at Keel The Pot.
I've moved the results to the extended entry, because otherwise it messes up my template.
It was an interesting quiz, given that the specific Catholic views were not really presented as options. For example, read the Catechism of the Catholic Church # 1038 to 1060
1060 At the end of time, the Kingdom of God will come in its fullness. Then the just will reign with Christ for ever, glorified in body and soul, and the material universe itself will be transformed. God will then be "all in all" (1 Cor 15:28), in eternal life.

From Summa Minutiae


3 more saints for the year. From his random saint's generator
St. Athanasius - January 31
Bishop caught in the Saracen invasion of Sicily. Athanasius was born in Catania, Sicily, and had to flee to Patras in Greece when the Saracens invaded his lands. He became a Basilian monk and was named the bishop of Modon.
St. Leonianus - November 6
Hermit confessor. Originally from Pannonia, he was captured by raiders and taken to France. Regaining his freedom, Leonianus became a hermit near Autun. He embraced the monastic life in his later years.
St. Begga - December 17
Begga was the daughter of Pepin of Landen, mayor of the palace, and St. Itta. She married Ansegilius, son of St. Arnulf of Metz, and their son was Pepin of Herstal, founder of the Carolingian dynasty of rulers in France. On the death of her husband in the year 691, she built a church and convent at Andenne on the Meuse River and died there. Her feast day is December 17th.

Prayer to Continue to Fight for God
Lord, if your people still have need of my services, I will not avoid the toil. Your will be done. I have fought the good fight long enough. Yet if you bid me continue to hold the battle line in defense of your camp, I will never beg to be excused from failing strength. I will do the work you entrust to me. While you command, I will fight beneath your banner.

St Martin of Tours, Italian Soldier, Hermit, Bishop
Connections - not nearly as many as some others have found with their saint. However, I do work with the poor, and I have lived in France. I will endeavor to imitate St. Martin's selfless generosity and his humility.
