Apocryphote of the Day: 5-5-08

Woe to you who hope in the flesh and in the prison that will perish!
How long will you be oblivious?
How long will you suppose that the imperishable will perish too?

Thomas the Contender 143.10-14 (encratic text from Syria, late second century)

Thanks for this quote, April. It resonates with me, reminding me of numerous Biblical passages that speak of the "vanity of vanities" (Eccl. 1:2) of life here on Earth, below Heaven.
