Patristic Quote of the Day

Just as two parents, Adam and Eve, produced us for death, so also two parents, Christ and the Church, produce us for life.  --St. Augustine, Sermon 109 [cited in Gerhard's On the Church, p. 27]

Awesome. Not only are the old Lutheran quotes from Gerhard, but the patristic ones, too!

Beautiful. I'll have to use it in a sermon one day.
