Daily Contemplation

He is stoned, yet not hit (Jn 11:35);
He prays, yet He hears prayer (Mt 8:13);
He weeps, yet He puts an end to weeping (Lk 8:52).
He asks where Lazarus is laid – He was man;
yet He raises Lazarus – He was God.
He is sold, and cheap was the price – thirty pieces of silver;
yet He buys back the world at the mighty cost of His own blood.
St. Gregory of Nazianzus

But there are some who trouble you and want to pervert the gospel of Christ.
But even if we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be accursed.
As we have said before, so now I say again, if anyone preaches any other gospel to you than what you have received, let him be accursed.
For do I now persuade men, or God? Or do I seek to please men? For if I still pleased men, I would not be a bondservant of Christ.

(Gal 1:7-10)
