Quote: William Porcher DuBose

Today in Lesser Feasts and Fasts we remember William Porcher DuBose, a priest.  He wrote this passage shortly before his death in 1918: 

"God has placed forever before our eyes, not the image but the Very Person of the Spiritual Man.  We have not to ascend into Heaven to bring Him down, nor to descend into the abyss to bring Him up, for He is with us, and near us, and in us.  We have only to confess with our mouths that He is Lord, and believe in our hearts that God has raised Him from the dead - and raised us in Him - and we shall live."

Simply said.  Complete in its statement.  Our only response need be Thank you, God.  Thank you.
