The true weal and safety of the soul


"If we must needs pass in review the erring thoughts and words of men, let us be sure that our final object is not a criticism of error but the clearer apprehension and possession of truth. They who believe may, by reason of the very loyalty and fervor of their devotion, so anxiously and eagerly watch the fleeting, earth-born mists which for a moment have threatened to veil the face of the Sun of Righteousness as to forget that the true weal [well-being] and safety of the soul is only assured while her eye is persistently fixed on His imperishable glory."

H. P. Liddon, The Divinity of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, pages 43-44.
