We Must Stoop beneath the Veil

St John Henry Newman (1801-1890)

“St Andrew was the first convert among the Apostle;  he was especially in our Lord’s confidence;  thrice is he described as introducing others to Him;  [but] he is little known in history;  while the place of dignity and the name of highest renown, have been allotted to his brother Simon, whom he was the means of bringing to the knowledge of his Saviour ….

These men, are not necessarily, the most useful men in their generation, not the most favoured by God, who made the most noise in the world and who seem to be principals in the great changes and events recorded in history ….

His marvellous Providence works beneath a veil, which speaks but an untrue language. And, to see Him who is the Truth and the Life, we must stoop underneath it and so, in our turn, hide ourselves from the world.”
