Quote of the Day (St. Boniface, on the Church as a ‘Great Ship’)

“In her voyage across the ocean of this world, the church is like a great ship being pounded by the waves of life's different stresses. Our duty is not to abandon ship but to keep her on her course.” —St. Boniface (673-754), Letter 78: MGH, Epistolae 3, 352.354, quoted in Fr. Devin Roza, Fulfilled in Christ: The Sacraments. A Guide to Symbols and Types in the Bible and Tradition (2015)
