From the text (p. 284):

‘It is told in the life of St. Gregory Thaumaturgus that when he was about to die, he enquired of those about him how many unbelievers there were in the city. The reply came quickly: “Seventeen only.” The dying bishop meditated awhile on the figure stated, and then remarked: “Exactly the number of believers whom I found when I became bishop here.” Starting with only seventeen believers his labours had brought faith to all but seventeen! Wonderful! Yet the grace of God has not been exhausted by the passage of the centuries. Faith and courage could draw on it as freely to do the same to-day.’

Notice: Inactive eBook Links & Sources

Sic transit aetherloci mundi, sed verbum semper subsistit.

Please be informed that the following webpages / websites that formerly hosted Catholic Christian ebooks and texts are currently defunct, and that, therefore, all links to ebooks and texts in those sites are now inactive pr dead links:

In addition, the following websites / webpages hosting Catholic Christian texts and ebooks have been extensively reconstructed, and therefore, all links to their ebooks and texts are now inactive and require updating:

Kindly visit our newly updated page Sources of Catholic eBooks & Texts for the current list of websites / webpages where free and online and worth-it texts and ebooks are legally available.

We are (very slowly) updating the affected links, either by finding replacement links to legally free copies of the texts, or by posting links to worth-it (for purchase) copies. This is an ever incomplete task, however, due to link rot. Therefore, if you encounter a dead link, kindly (a) comment and inform us; (b) suggest a suitable and lawful replacement, if you know of one; and (c) where the website subsists, as in the case of the EWTN Library and Catholic Truth Society Pamphlets, please proceed to that website directly.

In any case, for other texts and ebooks, you may access the List of Free eBooks (Arranged by Title), the List of Free eBooks (Grouped by Subject), the List of Worth-It Catholic Books & eBooks, and the frequently updated blog/updates page of the Project.

Then the King will say to those who are on his right hand, Come, you that have received a blessing from my Father, take possession of the kingdom which has been prepared for you since the foundation of the world. For I was hungry, and you gave me food, thirsty, and you gave me drink; I was a stranger, and you brought me home, naked, and you clothed me, sick, and you cared for me, a prisoner, and you came to me… Believe me, when you did it to one of the least of my brethren here, you did it to me.

Then he will say to those who are on his left hand, in their turn, Go far from me, you that are accursed, into that eternal fire which has been prepared for the devil and his angels. For I was hungry, and you never gave me food, I was thirsty, and you never gave me drink; I was a stranger, and you did not bring me home, I was naked, and you did not clothe me, I was sick and in prison, and you did not care for me… Believe me, when you refused it to one of the least of my brethren here, you refused it to me.

“And these shall pass on to eternal punishment, and the just to eternal life.” (St. Matthew xxv, 34-36, 40-43, 45-46)

“Religion, pure and immaculate with God and the Father, is this: To visit the fatherless and widows in their tribulation, and to keep one’s self immaculate from this world.” (St. James i, 27)
