Friday, September 16, 2022
    Feast of Cyprian, Bishop of Carthage, Martyr, 258
    Commemoration of Ninian, Bishop of Galloway, Apostle to the Picts, c. 430
    Commemoration of Edward Bouverie Pusey, Priest, tractarian, 1882
    So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.
    —Colossians 2:6 (NIV)
    We do not, of course, any of us, nearly thank God enough. I fear that what will surprise us most, when we see our Lord, will be the extent of our own ingratitude.
    ... Edward B. Pusey (1800-1882), Spiritual Letters of Edward Bouverie Pusey, London: Longmans, Green & Co., 1898, p. 299 (see the book)
    See also Col. 2:6-7; Matt. 14:19; 26:26-27; Rom. 14:6; Eph. 5:4; Col. 3:15; 4:2; 1 Thess. 5:18; 1 Tim. 2:1-2; Heb. 13:15
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, teach me thankfulness.
