Stained glass Anchor

"With this hope [in the resurrection] therefore let our souls be bound unto Him that is

faithful in His promises and that is righteous in His judgments.

He that commanded not to lie, much more shall He Himself not lie:

for nothing is impossible with God save to lie.

Therefore let our faith in Him be kindled within us, and let us

understand that all things are nigh unto Him"

 

- from the First Epistle of Pope St Clement.
