Quote/s of the Day – 15 November – Readings: Wisdom 7: 22b – 8: 1; Psalm 119: 89-91, 130, 135, 175; Luke 17: 20-25
“For behold, the kingdom of God
is among you.”
“…[The Kingdom of God] … is within you.
That is, it depends on your own wills
and is in your own power,
whether or not you receive it.
Everyone, that has attained
to justification, by means of faith in Christ
and decorated by every virtue,
is counted worthy,
of the kingdom of heaven.”
St Cyril of Alexandria (376-444)
Father and Doctor of the Church
“The kingdom of heaven
is like a treasure buried in a field,
which a person finds and hides again
and out of joy, goes and sells all that he has
and buys that field.”
“This is the work of God,
that you believe in him
whom he hath sent.”
“I want to advise you and remind you,
what His will is.
Do not fear that it means He will give you riches,
or delights, or honours, or all these earthly things.
His love for you is not that small!
and He esteems highly what you give Him.
He wants to repay you well,
for He gives you His kingdom
while you are still on earth …
See … what He gave to the One He loved most.
By that we understand what His will is.
For these are His gifts in this world.”
