Christian Quotation of the Day

April 23, 2007
Feast of George, Martyr, Patron of England, c.304
Commemoration of Michael Ramsey, Archbishop of Canterbury, Teacher, 1988
    Jesus said to her, "Do not cling to me, for I have not yet ascended to the Father; but go to my brothers and say to them, I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God."
    -- John 20:17 (ESV)

    I greet Thy sepulcher, salute Thy grave,
    That blest enclosure, where the angels gave
    The first glad tidings of Thy early light,
    And resurrection from the earth and night.
    I see that morning in Thy convert’s tears,
    Fresh as the dew, which but this downing wears.
    I smell her spices; and her ointment yields
    As rich a scent as the now primrosed fields:
    The Day-star smiles, and light, with Thee deceased,
    Now shines in all the chambers of the East.
        ... Henry Vaughan (1622-1695)

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You are the Light of the world.
