“This Lord, our God, the Word of God, the Word made flesh, the Son of the Father, the Son of God, the Son of man, exalted that He might create us, humbled that He might recreate us, walking among men, suffering what is human, concealing what is divine. Let every sigh be a panting after Christ, let that most beautiful One, who loved even the ugly that He might make them beautiful, let Him be longed for. Hurry to Him alone, sigh for Him.”

-Saint Augustine

“Thanks be to Thee, my Lord Jesus Christ For all the benefits Thou hast given me,
For all the pains and insults Thou hast borne for me.  O most merciful Redeemer, friend and brother,

Love Thee more dearly,
Follow Thee more nearly,

Day by day.”

Bishop of Chichester (1197 – 1253), which he prayed,

“Those that are once really converted will not return to their former course of life, though ever so much tempted by the frowns or flatteries of others to do so. Neither persuasion nor reproach will prevail with them to be or to do as they were wont to do. The temper and behaviour of true Christians seem very strange to ungodly men. That they should despise that which every one else is fond of, that they should believe many things which to others seem incredible, that they should delight in what is irksome and tedious, be zealous where they have no visible interest to serve, and depend so much upon hope is what the ungodly cannot comprehend. ”

– Matthew Henry
