ST. BEDE

Saint Bede the Venerable

Bede the Venerable lived his life in the darkest of times and was indeed a light shining in that darkness. Bede loved the Lord Jesus and devoted his life to the study and translation of Scripture. He himself commented on over twenty-five Books of Scripture. As the barbarians in Rome were burning books, Bede was recoding them.

In Bede's commentary on Revelation, he praised Jesus as "The Morning Star." These words form the focus for the center of our Altar Cross. It is our conviction that the words of St. Bede incorporated into this sculpture are exhibited in only two places in the world: over the tomb of the Saint in Durham, England, and in our nave over the altar where we meet our Lord.

"Christ is the Morning Star who when the night of this world is past brings to his saints the promise of the light of life and opens everlasting day."

Bede: Revelation 2:28
