By it we share in his resurrection. Through it we are reborn by the Holy Spirit.

We think having faith means being convinced God exists in the same way we are convinced a chair exists.

We think very little of time present; we anticipate the future, as being too slow, and with a view to hasten it onward, we recall the past to stay it as too swiftly gone.

– From Petronii Arbitri Satyricon AD 66 (Attributed to Gaius Petronus, a Roman General who later committed suicide)
