All this He endured in working our salvation. For since those who were enslaved to sin were liable to the penalties of sin, he himself, exempt from sin though he was and walking the path of perfect righteousness, underwent the punishment of sinners. By his cross he blotted out the decree of the ancient curse. . . From a Treatise on the Incarnation of the Lord--Theodoret of Cyr

Today is the Feast of St. Teresa Benedicta OCD.


Thank you.

Two points:

(1) I'm terrible at remembering all these things, even those within the order; however, even barring that--

(2) this entry was composed during a bout of externally produced insomnia, so even had I realized the date, I'm uncertain that the clarity would have dawned.

By this morning, I did realize it, but didn't change the header, so thank you much for the head's up.
