I Admire the Early Church

I admire the Early Church:

For what She believed, we have a tested belief;
Those who persist in it will harvest an eternal relief.
Each day, they are being transformed into Christís likeness.

For the tests She endured we have a testimony;
Those who have tasted it testify about a covenant of the divine matrimony.
This relationship restores wholeness.

I admire the early Church:

For the standards She set, we have the challenge;
Because She died, we live;
If She made any mistakes, it is the source of our warning;
And we owe the correction we have to Her errors.

For the questions She asked, we have the answers;
Because She succeeded, we are inspired;
If She suffered any defeat, it is the paradox of our victory;
And we owe the confidence we have to the test She underwent.

I admire the early Church:

Started, yet finished;
Cultured to picture the heavenly structure;
Complete yet still a lot to be accomplished.
The true picture of the divine gesture.

I love the early Church too, and I also love the modern Church, yet I am saddened by its luke-warmness.
