Fr. Glenn's Sermon for Trinity XX

Excerpt: How are God’s people supposed to live? First, by inference, we know that God’s people are to live with humility and generosity. Those who enter the Kingdom are humble and God is generous. Humility and generosity are marks of discipleship that imitate the Master. Not only will the disciple of Jesus live with true humility, but he will give everything, the whole wide universe, to the humble, the humiliated, those who have nothing to offer back.

Saints Bio: St. Fridewside

St. Frideswide, Virgin, patroness of Oxford, lived from about 650 to 735. According to the earliest accounts, she was the child of King Didan and Safrida, and was brought up to holiness by Algiva. She refused the proffered hand of King Algar, a Mercian, and fled from him to Oxford. It was in vain that he pursued her; a mysterious blindness fell on him, and he left her in her cell. From this eventually developed the monastery in which she died in 19 October (her principal feast), and was buried. The earliest written life now extant was not composed until four hundred years after her death, but it is generally admitted that the substance of the tradition has every appearance of verisimilitude. From the time of her translation in 1180 from her original tomb to the great shrine of her church, her fame spread far and wide; for the university was now visited by students from all parts, who went twice a year in solemn procession to her shrine and kept her feasts with great solemnity. Cardinal Wolsey transformed her monastery into Christ Church College, King Henry made her church into Oxford cathedral, but her shrine was dismantled, and her relics, which seem to have been preserved, were relegated to some out-of-the-way corner of the parish church.

And they continued stedfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers. Acts 2:42
