St. Justin Martyr

Yesterday was the feast of St. Justin Martyr.  A famous quote to re-ponder:

We have been taught that Christ is the firsborn of God, and we have proclaimed that he is the Logos, in whom every race of people have shared.  And those who love according to the Logos are Christians, even though they may have been counted as atheists – such as Socrates and Heraclitus, and others like them, among the Greeks…Whatever either lawyers or philosophers have said well, was articulated by finding and reflecting upon some aspect of the Logos…. Whatever all people have said well belongs to us Christians…. For all writers were able to see the truth darkly, on account of the implanted seed of the Logos which was grafted into them.
