Thought for the Day – 7 November – The Memorial of St Willibrord (c 658 – 739) “Apostle to the Frisians”

The king demanded to know why he had violated their sacred places and insulted their god.   The herald of truth answered him with steady courage:

“O king, you do not adore God but the devil.   He has foully deluded you so that he can thrust your soul into everlasting fire.   For there is no God but one.   He created sky, earth, sea and everything that is in them.   Whoever worships Him with true faith will have life forever.   I urge you finally to renounce that foolish delusion of your ancestors, and to believe in the one Almighty God and Our Lord Jesus Christ.   I call on you to be baptised in the font of life and wash away all your sins.   Then with all wickedness and wrongdoing cast away from you, you may live as a new man in all reasonableness, righteousness and holiness.   If you do this you will win an eternal life of glory with God and His saints.   But if instead you reject the path of salvation, then be most assured that you will suffer eternal tortures and hellish flames along with the devil to whom you pay court.”
