On the first day of the week, when we were gathered together to break bread, Paul talked with them, intending to depart on the next day, and he prolonged his speech until midnight.  There were many lamps in the upper room where we were gathered.  And a young man named Eutychus, sitting at the window, sank into a deep sleep as Paul talked still longer. And being overcome by sleep, he fell down from the third story and was taken up dead.  But Paul went down and bent over him, and taking him in his arms, said, “Do not be alarmed, for his life is in him.”  And when Paul had gone up and had broken bread and eaten, he conversed with them a long while, until daybreak, and so departed.  And they took the youth away alive, and were not a little comforted.

Acts 20:7-12

SONY DSCFather,

give perfection to beginners,

understanding to the little ones,

and help to those

who are running their course.

Give sorrow to the negligent,

fervour to the lukewarm,

and a good consummation

to the perfect.

Irenaeus of Lyon, 2nd century
