O Lord, you have told us
   that you will ask much of those to whom much is given;
   may we, who enjoy so rich an inheritance of faith,
   work together the more faithfully,
   by our prayers and labors,
   to share with those who do not know you
   the gifts we so plentifully enjoy;
   so may others enter into ours,
   through Christ our Lord

Author unknown, fifth century

Dear friends, although I was very eager to write to you about the salvation we share, I felt compelled to write and urge you to contend for the faith that was once for all entrusted to God’s holy people.
