On This Side of the Sea ~ Samhthann

"If God could be found on this side of the sea we would indeed journey across. Since, however, God is near to all who call upon him, we are under no obligation to cross the sea. The kingdom of heaven can be reached from every land."


Samhthann (c.6AD.)

Earth is the Footstool of my Feet ~ Columbanus

"Yet of his being who shall be able to speak? Of how he is everywhere present and invisible, or of how he fills heaven and earth and every creature, according to that saying, Do I not fill heaven and earth? Saith the Lord, and elsewhere, The Spirit of God, according to the prophet, has filled the round earth, and again heaven is my throne, but earth is the footstool of my feet?"


Columbanus (540-615)
