St. Leo II — Pope and Confessor July 3

St. Leo was a great musician. When he became Pope he devoted his musical talent to perfecting the melodies of the Psalms and Hymns of the Church. By his example and his preaching he led others to the practice of virtue.

I will clothe her priests with salvation: and her saints shall rejoice with exceeding great joy. There will I bring forth a horn to David: I have prepared a lamp for my anointed. — Gradual

The Imitation of Christ
See how far yet thou art from true charity and humility; which knoweth not how to feel anger or indignation against anyone but oneself.
Ideal
Amid all the cares and business of the Papacy this saint found time to help the needy and the poor. Those in distress found in him a father and a friend.
Today
To read about virtue is one thing, actually to practice virtue is quite another thing. Can you remain sweet tempered and considerate if others bother you when you are very, very busy? Try it.
Slogan
Blessed are the meek.
