Wednesday, February 14, 2018
    Ash Wednesday
    Feast of Cyril & Methodius, Missionaries to the Slavs, 869 & 885
    Commemoration of Valentine, Martyr at Rome, c.269
    Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the LORD rises upon you. See, darkness covers the earth and thick darkness is over the peoples, but the LORD rises upon you and his glory appears over you. Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your dawn.
    —Isaiah 60:1-3 (NIV)
    The Christian must be consumed with the infinite beauty of holiness and the infinite damnability of sin.
    ... Thomas Carlyle (1795-1881)
    See also Isa. 60:1-3; Deut. 4:24; Isa. 6:3; Matt. 23:33; Heb. 12:29
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, take my sin away, that I may see Your holiness.
