Erasmus' Heart is Ours as Well

"Make Christ the only goal of your life. Dedicate to Him all your enthusiasm, all your effort, your leisure as well as your business. And don't look upon Christ as a mere word, as an empty expression, but rather as charity, simplicity, patience and purity--in short, in terms of everything he has taught us." For Jesus was "the sole archetype of godliness." Quoted in Jaroslav Pelikan, Jesus Through the Centuries: His Place in the History of Culture, Yale University Press, 1985, p. 155.
