CQOD: 06/22/07 -- Pascal: not peace but deliverance

Christian Quotation of the Day

June 22, 2007
Feast of Alban, first Martyr of Britain, c.209
    Strengthen the feeble hands, steady the knees that give way; say to those with fearful hearts, "Be strong, do not fear; your God will come, he will come with vengeance; with divine retribution he will come to save you."
    -- Isaiah 35:3,4 (NIV)

    We implore the mercy of God, not that He may leave us at peace in our vices, but that He may deliver us from them.
    ... Blaise Pascal (1623-1662), Pensées [1660]

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, I call upon Your name for salvation.
