in our wanderings a guide,
in our blindness someone to show us the light,
in our thirst the fountain of living water
that quenches forever the thirst of those who drink from it.
We dead people need life,
we sheep need a shepherd,
we children need a teacher,
the whole world needs Jesus!
- Clement of Alexandria, 150-215 A.D., Christ the Educator 1.9.83.
