"I do not greatly wonder, in view of all this, that the very hairs of our heads are all numbered (Matt. x. 30); that our names are written in heaven (Luke x. 20); that we are graven upon the Lord’s hands (Is. xlix. 16); that we are carried in His bosom (Is. xlvi. 3), since we are fed with Christ’s precious body and blood. Inexpressibly great must be the value of our souls, since they are fed with the precious ransom of their redemption. Great indeed is the honor put upon our bodies, inasmuch as they are the dwelling-places of our souls redeemed and fed by the body of Christ, and are the temples of the Holy Ghost and the abodes of the adorable Trinity."
