Quote/s of the Day – 27 March – Tuesday of Holy Week 2018
“Nobody can reign with Christ without having imitated His Passion. For things of great value can only be acquired at a great price.”
St John Chrysostom (347-407) Father & Doctor of the Church
“Great thing is the knowledge of the crucified Christ. How many things are enclosed inside this treasure! Christ crucified! Such is the hidden treasure of wisdom and science. Do not be deceived, then, under the pretext of wisdom. Gather before the covering and pray that it may be uncovered. Foolish philosopher of this world, what you are looking for is worthless… What is the advantage of being thirsty, if you despise the source? … And what is His precept but that we believe in Him and love each other? In whom? In Christ crucified. This is His commandment: that we believe in Christ crucified … But where humility is, there is also majesty, where weakness is, there shall one find power, where death is, there shall be life as well. If you wish to arrive at the second part, do not despise the first. “ (Sermon 160, 3-4).
