Sțckhardt on Septuagesima РMatthew 20:1-16

Tuesday, February 15th, 2011

The few who are saved owe their salvation alone to mercy, to the wonderful grace and omnipotence of God. Does God, who makes possible the salvation for the few, make salvation impossible for the many? Is it God, who out of pure pleasure opens up the kingdom of heaven for the few, then out of […]

It fills him with God’s peace. It sends the Holy Spirit […]
