The Life Ecstatic (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The Life Ecstatic It will have to be admitted, of course, that the ordinary Christian life does not call for any such adjective to describe it. That life, alas, is a very tame, cool, humdrum affair, scarcely to be dis tinguished from that which has no Christian label whatever, and sometimes even inferior to that which is the fruit of the highest moral. Philos ophy. We all know that the average Christian does not particularly honor his Lord, or exhibit with any sort of adequacy the glory of the great salvation; and that the Church will never con quer the world or impress itself as it should upon society until a very different state of things pre vails. We all know, also, or ought to know, that abundant provision has been made for an other order of affairs altogether, for continuous triumph instead of frequent defeat, strength in stead of weakness, success instead of failure, hap piness instead of humiliation and sorrow.
