Divine Office | The Cross of Christ is the source of all blessings, the cause of all graces

In today's Office of Readings we encounter a reading from a sermon by St. Leo the Great. Saint Leo the Great (-461 A.D.) was born in Etruria and became Pope in 440. He was a true shepherd and father of souls. He constantly strove to keep the faith whole and strenuously defended the unity of the Church. Leo left many doctrinal and spiritual writings behind and a number of them are included in the Office of Readings to this day. Credit: from Universalis; https://www.universalis.com.
