Happy All Saints Day

This morning I spent a little time digging through saints' lives, looking for a couple that you might not already know.  I'm going to post their stories throughout the day.

St. Genevieve 


The most remarkable thing about St. Genevieve, a 5th century Parisian who became a nun at age 15, is the ways in which she stood up to defend and help the people of Paris in difficult times. When Childeric, King of the Franks, besieged Paris in 464, Genevieve traveled by boat to Troyens to get grain for the Parisians. (It's for that reason she's often depicted holding a loaf of bread, as above.)

Later when Childeric's son Clovis I was king, at Genevieve's urging Clovis agreed to liberate may captives and treated lawbreakers more justly. (Clovis's wife would eventually convince him to convert to Catholicism; they were buried in the Abbey of St. Genevieve.)

The story also goes, when Attila the Hun's forces were headed towards Paris she called on Parisians to join her in prayer rather than flee. Not what we might call the most practical of choices. And yet, in the end the Hun turned to Orleans instead.

Today Genevieve is the patron saint of Paris and disasters. (And definitely not Orleans.)

A gift for you....truth.

Our heavenly Father will NOT put any child of his into a hell fire no matter what their sins, whether they repent or not. Sin doesn't scare God! He created it Isa 45:7 to teach us ALL the knowledge of good and evil Gen 3:22 for our eternal placement in his coming world Rev 21. Throwing any child of his into a hell fire has never entered his heart or mind to ever do such a thing Jer 7:31, Jer 19:5. Anyone teaching a hell fire or second death for any child of God has been deceived by the devil Rev 12:9. That belief has you believing in the god of hate murder and revenge. The true word of God John 1:1 is now delivered Rev 12:5 and proven on this blog diary http://thegoodtale.blogspot.com A righteous judge HEARS ALL THE EVIDENCE BEFORE making a judgment 1 Cor 6:2, 1 Thes 5:21, Pro 18:13, Acts 3:23 .
