THE GOSPELS, WHICH CONTAIN THE MEMORIALS OF THE WONDERFUL GRACE, ARE OUR PRINCIPAL TREASURES

12 Jul

Our Lord and Saviour

“To know Christ is to discern the Father of all, as manifested through his only-begotten Son incarnate… And thus the Gospels, which contain the memorials of this wonderful grace, are our principal treasures. They may be called the text of the Revelation; and the Epistles, especially St Paul’s, are as comments upon it, unfolding and illustrating it in its various parts, raising history into doctrine, ordinances into sacraments, detached words or actions into principles, and thus everywhere dutifully preaching his person, work and will.”

– Bl. John Henry Newman; The very life of personal religion lies in a knowledge of the Gospels, P.S. II, 154-155
