Historical Thought of the Day

In inaugurating this new blog, I have been contemplating some daily or weekly tidbits I can through in from time to time. This is sort of a Thought of the Day kind of thing, if you will. (I am also planning a Classic Heresy of the Week teaching blurb, but that will be for another day).

"Christians who are content with faith, and do not use reason to build upon it, are again a child who is forever content on milk alone..."
-Clement of Alexandria, 2nd Century CE

Today's thought comes from Clement of Alexandria, who was a highly educated pagan convert who died in AD 216. He is the patron saint of teachers. His Feast Day is December 7th.
