Quote of the Week

"Thus receiving in a divine revelation the loveliest standard of truth [i.e., the Bible], let us preserve the treasures lying therein, adding nothing to it and in no way diminishing or distorting it. If we watch over the Scriptures we ourselves will be watched over by them, guarding them and being guarded."

- (Pseudo) Dionysius the Areopagite, a prominent writer and theologian from the period of the early church fathers

(Painting: "Dionysius the Areopagite Converting the Pagan Philosophers," by Antoine Caron, c.1570)
