Quote of the Week

"Do but fancy in your mind what a spirit of piety you would have in the best bishop in the world, how you would have him love God, how you would have him imitate the life of our Savior and his Apostles, how you would have him live above the world, shining in all the instances of a heavenly life, and then you have found out that spirit which you ought to make the spirit of your own life."

- William Law, 18th-century Anglican divine, from A Serious Call to a Devout and Holy Life

(Painting: "Head of a Bishop," by Gaetano Gandolfi, c.1770, oil on canvas)
