Patristic Quote for the Day

Great indeed is the Baptism which is offered you. It is ransom to captives; the remission of offences; the death of sin; the regeneration of the soul; the garment of light; the holy seal indissoluble; the chariot to heaven; the luxury of paradise; a procuring of the kingdom; the gift of adoption. - St. Cyril of Jerusalem, *The Protocatechesis* par. 16
