Priest On Titanic Gives His Life To Hear Confessions

mystagogy:

I just read the incredibly moving story of  Father Thomas Byles, a priest on the Titanic. He had at least two offers to get on a lifeboat and turned them both down, saying “his duty was to stay on the ship while one soul wanted his ministrations.”

What a holy man, a man to emulate. If I ever hear his cause for canonization has been opened, I will be among those praying for it.

It is easy to love those who live far away. It is not always easy to love those who live right next to us. It is easier to offer a dish of rice to meet the hunger of a needy person than to comfort the loneliness and the anguish of someone in our own home who does not feel loved. Mother Teresa (via hislivingpoetry)

No. I am a Klingon warrior and a Starfleet officer. I have piloted starships through Dominion minefields. I have stood in battle against Kelvans twice my size. I courted and won the heart of the magnificent Jadzia Dax. If I can do these things, I can make this child go to sleep. — Worf. (via catbuttcat)
