Post-Resurrection Quote

“The philosophers of Greece and Rome doted on beautiful ideals. The Apostles were enthused with love for the living Christ, the tangible Image of the living God. The secret of their power lay in this personal attachment of faith to the living Christ in very person. It was a heart-to-heart love that conquered the world in that early age … When St. Thomas puts his hand on the wound-print in Jesus’ side, sinks to his knees and exclaims: ‘My Lord and my God,’ all the power of personal worship of God in Christ reveals itself. And by this alone the church of Christ has become what it is.”
