Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

In the fullness of time, You sent this Savior to us. Through Him, You recall us from death to life, from sin to righteousness, from hell to heavenly glory. O Lover of all humanity, whose delight is in the children of men, who can offer worthy praise for this philanthropy? Moreover, who can conceive of it? These are the incomprehensible riches of Your goodness. -- Blessed Johann Gerhard, *Meditations on Divine Mercy* p. 63 (trans. by Pastor Matthew Harrison)
