Christian Fellowship

John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

77 years ago: Faith the Church cat who survived the Blitz

Recommended Posts

"From the P.D.S.A. to Faith of St. Augustine's, Watling Street, E.C.

For steadfast courage in the Battle of London, September 9th, 1940."

 

Among all the horrors going on, I thought a brighter story might help. This year marks the anniversary of a small church cat's incredible survival. Faith, the church cat at St Augustine's and St Faith's Church in London, had been a stray adopted by the church who lay at the vicar's feet while he preached.

 

In September 1940 she survived three nights of fire-bombing which destroyed the church she lived in. Hidden in the cellar with her kitten, she was rescued from the still-burning building by the vicar shortly before it collapsed. She and her kitten were amazingly unharmed, and she returned to the church daily during the rebuilding which helped inspire the congregation to continue. She was presented with a silver Dickin Medal for Courage in 1945, at a ceremony attended by the Archbishop of Canterbury.
