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.’
