Patristic Quote of the Day

He is the mute lamb,
he is the slain lamb,
he is born of Mary, the fair ewe,
he is taken from the flock
and delivered over to immolation
and slain in the evening
and buried in the night;
who was broken on the wood,
was not corrupted in the earth,
he rose from the dead,
and raised man from the depths of the tomb.
- St. Melito of Sardis, Easter Homily

Rev. Weedon,

Thanks. I needed that. Very refreshing on this particular day. (Really it would be good on any day.)
