Quote of the Day (St. Anselm, on the ‘Reason for the Hope That Is In Us’)

“Almighty God, who raised up Your servant Anselm to teach the Church of his day to understand its faith in Your eternal Being, perfect justice, and saving mercy, provide Your Church in every age with devout and learned scholars and teachers, that we may be able to give a reason for the hope that is in us; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever.”—Prayer of St. Anselm of Canterbury (1033-1109), Benedictine monk and founder of medieval Scholasticism
