No Other Foundation
'Jesus, our Savior, true God and true Man, must be the ultimate end of all our devotions.
Otherwise they would be false and misleading.
He is the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End of everything...
He is the only Teacher from whom we must learn,
the only Lord on whom we should depend,
the only Head to whom we should be united,
and the only Model we should imitate.
He's the only Physician who can heal us;
the only Shepherd who can feed us;
the only Way that can lead us;
the only Truth we can believe;
the only Life that can animate us.
He alone is everything to us, and He alone can satisfy all our desires.
We are given no other name under heaven by which we can be saved.
God has laid no other foundation than Jesus for our salvation, perfection and glory.
Every edifice that is not built on that firm Rock
is built upon shifting sands and will certainly fall.'
St. Louis de Montfort
