“He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.”
“Any theology that is indifferent to the theme of liberation is not Christian Theology.”
“Father, I stretch my hands to Thee, no other help I know; If thou withdraw thyself from me, Ah! Whither shall I go? What did Thine only Son endure, before I drew my breath? What pain, what labor, to secure my soul from endless death!”
