We who take access to words for granted should pause to be grateful
to those who preserved the Gospel words so carefully and spread them
to the utmost bounds of the world without benefit of the printing press
or instantaneous media.
I found these words in the daily readings of the book "Magnificat". Please
read it again and imagine how they did that! In the secular world we
rarely go any amount of time before checking our electronics for some
reason. How these stories, parables and words from our Lord have
continued for thousands of years is truly a Gift from God.
