The eternal youthfulness

"We have lost the eternal youthfulness of Christianity and have aged into calculating manhood. We seldom pray in earnest for the extraordinary, the limitless, the glorious. We seldom pray with real confidence for any good, to the realization of which we cannot imagine a way. And yet we suppose ourselves to believe him infinite Father."

Unidentified, Edinburgh, 1910
