Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

Now that the Messiah has presented Himself in this way, let us keep our eyes in our worship on this only-begotten Son of God and Son of Mary who "was crucified, dead, and buried, and rose again and sits at the right hand of the Father," who gathers together His church out of the whole human race and cares for it, protects and defends it, and will save and glorify it in the eternal life to come. -- Martin Chemnitz, *Loci Theologici*, Vol. 1, p. 55

Ah, what a wonderful icon of Christ the Pantocrator. I gazed upon it for an hour in July 1974 -- it's in the apse of Cefalu Cathedral on the northern shore of Sicily -- and have wanted to return ever since.

Dr. Tighe,

"Blessed are the eyes that see what you see"! Maybe some day I'll be able to see it for myself. Who knows?
