Daily Catholic Quote from Pope Benedict XVI

Daily Catholic Quote from Venerable Fulton J. Sheen

“The big cities are sometimes thought to contain all the wisdom, while the little towns are looked upon as backward and unprogressive. Christ chose the insignificant Bethlehem for the glory of his birth; the ridiculed Nazareth for his youth; but the glorious, cosmopolitan Jerusalem for the ignominy of his death. ‘Can anything good come out of Nazareth?’ is but the [...]
