Patristic Quote for the Day

(Continuing the Preface from St. Basil)

He (Christ) is the image of Thy goodness, the seal of Thy very likeness, showing forth in Himself Thee, O Father - the living Word, the true God, the eternal Wisdom, the Life, the Sanctification, the Power, the true Light, through whom the Holy Spirit was revealed - the Spirit of truth, the Gift of sonship, the Pledge of future inheritance, the First-fruits of eternal blessings, the life-creating Power, the Fountain of sanctification, through whom every creature of reason and understanding worships Thee and always sings to Thee a hymn of glory, for all things are Thy servants.
