A wee bit of Chesterton for Ascension Day


Le Jeudi de l'Ascension • Les Très Riches Heures de Duc de Barry

G.K. Chesterton writes:

WHAT is the difference between Christ and Satan?

It is quite simple. Christ descended into hell; Satan fell into it.

One of them wanted to go up and went down;
the other wanted to go down and went up.

G.K. Chesterton
The Ball and the Cross
