Apocryphote of the Day: May Day 2008

The Father is sweet. Goodness is in his will. He knows what is yours, in which you will find rest. For by the fruit one knows what is yours. The children of the Father are his fragrance, for they are from the beauty of his face. So the Father loves his fragrance and manifests it everywhere.

Gospel of Truth 33.34-34.5 (early second century Valentinian sermon probably written by Valentinus)

Comment: Some sweet fragrance for May Day!
