Christian Quotation of the Day

Commemoration of Brigid, Abbess of Kildare, c.525

There is a cowardice in this age which is not Christian. We shrink from the consequences of truth. We look round and cling dependently. We ask what men will think; what others will say; whether they will not stare in astonishment. Perhaps they will; but he who is calculating that, will accomplish nothing in this
life. The Father — the Father which is with us and in us — what does He think? God’s work cannot be done without a spirit of independence. A man has got some way in the Christian life when he has learned to say, humbly yet majestically, “I dare to be alone.”
