From Saint and Thought For Every Day
by Blessed James Alberione
Pope and Martyr
St. Clement was the third successor to St. Peter. He is the author of a precious letter written to the Corinthians. Clement was martyred during the reign of Trajan, around the year 100. It is believed that the ancient basilica of St. Clement in Rome is built on the site of Clement's home.
Let us learn from St. Clement to bear witness to the Faith we believe by the way we live.
What Strikes Me Most Today
It's the art again today. Imagine actually seeing the Blessed Trinity! What a great detail Tiepolo adds by having Pope St. Clement, in all his humility, remove the symbols of his earthly power. If Pope St. Clement can be that humble, how much more humble should I be (especially when we are truly before God in the Blessed Sacrament!)
