Pascal: the reason of everything

Tuesday, December 27, 2016
    Feast of John, Apostle & Evangelist
    For by [the Son] all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by him and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together.
    —Colossians 1:16-17 (NIV)
    Jesus Christ is the end of all, and the centre to which all tends. Whoever knows Him knows the reason of everything.
    ... Blaise Pascal (1623-1662), Pensées (Thoughts) [1660], P.F. Collier & Son, 1910, #556, p. 185 (see the book)
    See also Col. 1:16-17; John 1:3; 1 Cor. 8:6
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, all praise be to You!
