Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

The Epistles and Gospels selected for the Pentecost cycle of Sundays have love as their general theme.  They deal not only with the love we owe to Christ and God, which, is only to be thankful for the unspeakable blessing of forgiveness of sins and salvation through Christ's blood and death, but also of the love we owe our neighbor; not a love in return for favors, but one that unceasingly gives, forgives and works all good even when unrequited. -- Blessed Martin Luther, Church Postil VIII:41.
