Patristic Quote for the Day

To Thee, O Victor pierced by nails on the cross Who calleth out ot sinners saying: come, receive forgiveness freely - to Thee I unrelentingly pray, O my Savior: turn Thine eyes away from my lawlessness, and by Thy sufferings heal my sores that i may glorify Thy kindness. - St. Ephrem the Syrian, *A Spiritual Psalter* #8

I always look forward to your Patristic quote of the day! A real treat. Where can one purchase a copy of *A Spiritual Psalter*?

Thanks, Jim. You can order a copy from Photini. She's got a few sitting on the shelves.

You can also order it online through the publisher: St. John of Kronstandt Press. That's where I got mine. They also have a number of other interesting books. The webpage is: www.sjkp.org.

Thank you both for the info. This kind of historic and patristic devotional aid far surpasses any of the contemporary sources in both beauty and doctrinal correctness. Too bad churches don't do "40 Days with the Fathers" or "Their Best Life Then"!

LOL. Pretty funny. I found this gem too late for this year's Lent:

I'll save it for next year.
