CQOD: 01/31/07 -- Kilmer: Why do the nations rage?

Christian Quotation of the Day

January 31, 2007
Commemoration of John Bosco, Priest, Founder of the Salesian Teaching Order, 1888
    I will tell of the decree: The LORD said to me, "You are my Son; today I have begotten you. Ask of me, and I will make the nations your heritage, and the ends of the earth your possession. You shall break them with a rod of iron and dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel."
    -- Psalm 2:7-9 (ESV)

    Vain is the chiming of forgotten bells That the wind sways above a ruined shrine. Vainer his voice in whom no longer dwells Hunger that craves immortal Bread and Wine. Light songs we breathe, that perish with our breath, Out of our lips that have not kissed the rod. They shall not live who have not tasted death. They only sing who are struck dumb by God.
    ... Joyce Kilmer (1886-1918)

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, let Your reign begin in me.
