THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK

THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK

It is in the order of divine Providence that we put our trust; and in those indestructible seeds that the gospel has sown in humanity, seeds which in every age bring forth new fruits from an old stock, and flowers of a beauty unknown before, and which must be recognized as sprung from the word of Christ, cultivated with Christian love; but alas for us if, because the fruit and flower are new, we fail to see that they really derive from the ancient and all-powerful plant! That would be to do dishonour to the divine root itself, and treat shamefully that treasure from which the householder brings forth things new and old.

Antonio Rosimini
