C.S. Lewis quote-of-the-week

On the “new men” (alluding to the transformation that God intends for His children), “They begin where most of us leave off…They will not be very like the idea of ‘religious people’…They do not draw attention to themselves. You tend to think that you are being kind to them when they are really being kind to you. They love you more than other men do, but they need you less…They usually seem to have a lot of time: you will wonder where it comes from. When you have recognized one of them, you will recognize the next one much more easily…In that way, to become holy is rather like joining a secret society. To put it at the very lowest, it must be great fun.”

--Mere Christianity, book 4, ch. 11
