Quote of the Day

“When early Christian bishops were made of gold, their crosses were made of wood. But bishops became like wood when their crosses appeared as gold.  The more that there was simplicity in the administration of the Word of God and the sacraments, the more that pastors were small and humble in the eyes of the world, and the church had fewer troubles. And who can dare to despise poverty in a faithful servant of God in the presence of the prophets, apostles, confessors and martyrs, and Jesus Christ himself—who were all poor?”  —Simon Goulart
