Spiritual Quote of the Day (St. John XXIII, on Jesus As ‘An Example and a Rule of Life’)

“This is the greatest dignity and obligation ever laid on man, and particularly on every Christian: the obligation to do honour to the Son of God, the ‘Word made flesh,’ who gives life to all mankind and all human society. Jesus left us the example of his thirty years of silence, so that we might learn to see the truth in him, and his three years of unwearied and persuasive ministry, so that we might find in him an example and a rule of life.”— St. John XXIII (1881-1963), Days of Devotion: Daily Meditations From the Good Shepherd, translated by Dorothy White and edited by John Patrick Donnelly (1967)
