from an apostolic father…

“How blessed and marvelous are the gifts of God, dear friends! Life in immortality, splendor in righteousness, truth with boldness, faith with confidence, self-control with holiness! And all these things fall within our comprehension. What, then, are the things being prepared for those who patiently wait for him? The Creator and Father of the ages, the all-holy one himself, knows their number and their beauty. Let us therefore make every effort to be found in the number of those who patiently wait for him, so that we may share in his promised gifts.” — 1 Clement 35:1-4
