Excerpt from The Devine Story: A Short Life of Our Blessed Lord Written Specially for Young People
Wherever one goes nowadays, - whether through the streets of his own city, or into the cities round about, or to far-off, unknown places, - he is almost certain to see some church-spire, rising gracefully above sur rounding buildings, and lifting a gilded cross to heaven; for everywhere, at the present time, the people know and serve God, in spirit and in truth.
But it was not always so. There was a time, far back in the ages Of the past, when no one knew or served the One, True God; but when, in every city, town, and village, the people adored images of wood and brass and stone, and served them, without shame, in wickedness and Sin.
