Voice of the Day: The Letter to Diognetus

By the Web Editors 07-29-2013
Christians live in their own countries, but only as guests and aliens. They take part in everything as citizens and endure everything as aliens. ... They are as poor as begars, and yet they make many rich. They lack everything, and yet they have everything in abundance. They are dishonored, and yet have their glory in this very dishonor. ... They are abused, yet they bless. ... In a word: what the soul is in the body, the Christians are in the world. - Letter to Diognetus + Sign up to receive our quote of the day via e-mail
