The way in which Christianity looks at things is so very different from the estimate of the world. And so our Lord, by a comparison, makes it clear to his disciples that power, even spiritual power like that which they found themselves to have over the devil, is a small thing compared with the profound issues of our destiny, the more potent things of our faith. What is the thing that matters beyond all else, the thing that should give us utmost joy? It is this: that our names are written in heaven; that we belong to heaven, that we are the children of the Father who is in heaven.
– Father Anscar Vonier, O.S.B.
