Divine Child Jesus, I love You with my whole heart

A sparrow in an illuminated banquet hall.

The bishop St. Paulin had come to the court of Edwin, the pagan king of Northumberland, who asked him if Christianity gave the solution to the problem of the origin and destiny of man. “One of my courtiers,” he added, “claims that man is like a sparrow who from the thick darkness of night enters a brightly lit room, spends a few moments there, and leaves through an opposite window without anyone knowing where he came from or where he is going.” St. Paulin replied that Christianity gave precisely the exact solutions to these problems, and he began to explain the Apostles’ symbol. He showed how the first article teaches that man is a creature of God, and the last, that man will rise again at the end of the world to live forever. These explanations pleased his listeners and many of them asked for baptism.

It must be repeated again and again that religion is a divine light for our intelligence which enlightens it on the most important questions of life.
