Spiritual Quote of the Day (John Donne, on the Psalms as ‘The Manna of the Church’)

“The Psalms are the manna of the church. As manna tasted to every man like that he liked best, so do the Psalms minister instruction, and satisfaction, to every man, in every emergency and occasion.”—English poet and Church of England cleric John Donne (1572-1631), Sermon 66 (Preached at St. Paul’s, Jan. 29, 1625), in The Works of John Donne, Volume 3

The image accompanying this post of John Donne was created by English portrait miniature painter Isaac Oliver 9ca. 1565-1617).
