...rmon from IghlIght'>Pope IghlIght'>Leo I. ThIs may seem totally out of place durIng Lent and you may be wonderIng why thIs was Included, but there Is some sense and logIc goIng on here!

He was one of the most sIgnIfIcant and Important men In ChrIstIan antIquIty, as he trIed to combat the heresIes whIch serIously threatened church unIty In the West, such as PelagIanIsm. ThIs sermon of hIs about the IncarnatIon of ChrIst and what It means for us has always stuck wIth me sInce I fIrst read It last AprIl when wrItIng my own book on the Early Church Fathers. It's not that long, so take the tIme to read It through and let the words sInk In as we prepare for ChrIstmas to remember and celebrate the bIrth...
