April 8 - Saint Dionysius of Corinth


St. Dionysius of Corinth is not a well known saint, but this Greek bishop wrote many letters to the faithful where his understanding, compassion for the weakness of people, and his desire to bring all to the truth, but with humbleness, excelled. Quoting St. Augustine, St. Dionysius said, “Defend the truth without arrogance; without harshness, and fight for the truth.”

Do you defend the truth without being aggressive and with simplicity, or do you sometimes enclose yourself in your own convictions and judge harshly those who do not believe as you do?
