CQOD: 05/26/07 -- Tertullian: the church

Christian Quotation of the Day

May 26, 2007
Feast of Augustine, first Archbishop of Canterbury, 605
    [Jesus:] "Again, I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything you ask for, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven. For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them."
    -- Matthew 18:19,20 (NIV)

    Wherever there are three persons, even though they are laymen, there is the church. Every man lives by his own faith, and God does not distinguish between classes. Since, in cases of necessity, you have the right to act as a priest, then you must also accept priestly discipline. It is God’s will that all of us should be in the right spiritual state, at any time or place, to administer His sacraments.
    ... Tertullian (160?-230?)

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, open my eyes to the existence of Your church wherever two or three are gathered.
