"He died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for Him who died for them and was raised again."
- 2 Corinthians 5:14-21

"THE MEANING OF HISTORY.
 
All great events of history have been misunderstood. The Cross is no exception. Why has this pouring of the world's sorrows on one Head held so many people these many years? Is it because suffering is a language that all can understand or Is it the terrible fascination of the triumph of evil, Is it a momentary glimpse into the hidden heroism of the soul of man which, embodied in its best and fairest, can reach heights of unselfishness unconquered by those whose only destiny is the dust?

Ever leads through death alone.
