Mysteries
 
  Mysteries held by us have no power, pomp, or wealth, but have been maintained by the universal body of true believers from the days of the apostles, and will be to the resurrection. Neither will the gates of hell prevail against them.
Jonathan Swift.

  I do not attempt explaining the mysteries of the Christian religion: since Providence intended there should be mysteries it cannot be agreeable to piety, orthodoxy, or good sense to go about it.
Jonathan Swift.

  If God should please to reveal unto us this great mystery of the Holy Trinity, or some other mysteries in our holy religion, we should not be able to understand them unless he would bestow on us some new faculties of the mind.
Jonathan Swift.
