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.”
