Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

[hijacked from Treasury of Daily Prayer for this day]

This Polycarp was a disciple and diligent hearer of John the apostle and evangelist, and he called the heretic Marcion, who met him once, a "child of the devil" without any fear. You see, no one should betray the truth with silence. -- Valerius Herberger (TDP, p. 1232)

Interesting. I'm currently translating Herberger's Magnalia Dei into English. Do you happen to see a citation for the source of this quote?

Yup, there is a full citation on page 1492 in your Treasury. One those hugely long German titles.
