Divine Child Jesus, I love You with my whole heart

Diogenes and the three sesterces.

The Greek philosopher Diogenes set up a tent in the market place of Athens, where he put up the following sign: “Wisdom is sold here.” An aristocrat who was passing by and who had been laughed at by this poster, called one of his slaves, gave him three sesterces (about 60 cents), and said to him: “Go to this boaster, and ask him how much wisdom he sells for three sesterces.” The slave carried out his master’s order and Diogenes, pocketing the three coins, said to him, “Go back to your master and bring him this maxim: In all things, think of the end.” This maxim pleased the master so well that he had it engraved above his door, to remind all who entered his house.

No one has reminded men of their last end more often or more insistently than Jesus Christ. Let every one of His disciples, therefore, think of it continually.
