As part of my one hour spent with the Lord in Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, I have begun reading The Imitation of Christ by Thomas à Kempis once again. Every week, I post an entry from his rich work for edification and reflection….
Imitation of Christ (1.3.4)
On the day of judgement, we will not be asked what we have read, but what we have done; neither will we be asked how well we have spoken, but how devoutly we have lived. Where are all the Doctors and learned people who were famous in their day? They are now supplanted by others. In their lifetime they enjoyed fame, but now they are scarcely remembered.
