Human life is but of brief duration

“Human life is but of brief duration. ‘All flesh is grass, and all the goodliness thereof is as the flower of the field. The grass withers, the flower fades; but the word of our God shall stand forever’ (Isa. 40:6). Let us hold fast to the commandment that abides, and despise the unreality that passes away.”

St. Basil the Great

Have a blessed New Year 2017 filled with the grace, love and peace of God in your hearts!
