St. Anselm (1033-1109)
Indifferent toward religion as a young man, Anselm became one of the
Church's greatest theologians and leaders. He received the title "Father of
Scholasticism" for his attempt to analyze and illumine the truths of faith
through the aid of reason. At 15, Anselm wanted to enter a monastery, but
was refused acceptance because of his father's opposition. Twelve years
later, after careless disinterest in religion and years of worldly living,
he finally fulfilled his desire to be a monk. He entered the monastery of
Bec in Normandy, three years later was elected prior and 15 years later was
unanimously chosen abbot.

Devout men buried Stephen and made a loud lament over him. Saul, meanwhile,
was trying to destroy the Church; entering house after house and dragging
out men and women, he handed them over for imprisonment. ~Acts 8:1b-8

Jesus said to the crowds, "I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me will
never hunger, and whoever believes in me will never thirst." ~John 6:35-40

Saul (who would become Paul) is on a rampage after the stoning of Stephen.
Although fear possessed many believers, they persisted in their belief. And
Jesus feeds them with His Body and Blood.  Faith grows, and people come to
understand that they have been saved, and that they're bound for a new and
better life with Christ.

I pray that I may not be fearful, but strong in my faith. I pray that I may
be strengthened by the Body and Blood of Christ that I may *become* the Body
of Christ to those around me.
