Athanasius of Alexandria (295 – 373), also called Athanasius the Great, was the 20th bishop of Alexandria. He was a Christian theologian, a Christian Church Father, and a noted Egyptian leader of the fourth century. Athanasius is the first person to identify the same 27 books of the New Testament that are in use today, and he is venerated as a Christian saint.
Quotes by Athanasius of Alexandria…
Let none of us entertain the desire for possessions, for what gain is it to acquire those things which we cannot take with us? Why not rather acquire those that we can take: prudence, justice, temperance, fortitude, understanding, charity, love of the poor, faith in Christ, goodness, hospitality? If we obtain these, we shall find them there before us preparing a welcome for us in the land of the meek.
If the world goes against truth, then Athanasius goes against the world.
