Lent Quotes: Christ understands the weakness of men

I found the following quote in the Feb. 29th entry at Anglican Mainstream’s daily Lent Devotional.  May it encourage others as it has me.  I’m glad Christ knows my weakness and is easily found when I humble my heart to seek Him!  Oh that I weren’t so stubborn in often refusing His help and His grace!


“Christ, like a skillful physician, understands the weakness of men. He loves to teach the ignorant and the erring he turns again to his own true way. He is easily found by those who live by faith and to those of pure eye and holy heart, who desire to knock at the door, he opens immediately.”

– St. Hyppolytus (Treatise on Christ and Antichrist)
