The light of the world


"Be of good comfort, Master Ridley, and play the man. For we shall this day light such a candle by God's grace in England, as I trust shall never be put out."

Hugh Latimer, to Nicholas Ridley, upon their martyrdom in Oxford, 1555.

They, and so many others like them, then and now -- the light of the world.
