Year after year I read this article, written in 1949 by the late Vermont Royster and published in the Wall Street Journal. It never gets old and never fails to move me. It seems particularly relevant this year.
Fellow Christians, never forget, Christ is the light that can never be extinguished. He came into the world to free us from bondage. He is our King, our true Home, the Prince of Peace. Alleluia!
In Hoc Anno Domini
By Vermont Royster, 1949
When Saul of Tarsus set out on his journey to Damascus the whole of the known world lay in bondage. There was one state, and it was Rome. There was one master for it all, and he was Tiberius Caesar.
