The LORD is my light and my salvation;

whom should I fear?

The LORD is my life’s refuge;

of whom should I be afraid?

“Baptism is for the captives the ransom price, the remission of debts, the death of sin, the regeneration of the soul, a shining garment, an unbreakable seal, the vehicle to heaven, the public agent of the Kindgdom, the gift of adoption.”

-St. Basil (330-379) Homiliae, 13, 5
