CQOD: 02/14/07 -- Osler: God right in front of us

Christian Quotation of the Day

February 14, 2007
Feast of Cyril & Methodius, Missionaries to the Slavs, 869 & 885
Commemoration of Valentine, Martyr at Rome, c.269
    Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience.
    -- Ephesians 5:6 (ESV)

    Look heavenward, if you wish, but never to the horizon; that way danger lies. Truth is not there, happiness is not there, certainty is not there, but the falsehoods, the frauds, the quackeries, the ignes fatui (false beacons) which have deceived each generation all beckon from the horizon and lure the men not content to look for the truth and happiness that tumble out at their feet.
    ... William Osler (1849-1919), A Way of Life [1937]

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, I reach out and You are there.
