Patristic Quote for the Day

He granted to mortals a double purification, that of the Spirit, ever-flowing, who has cleansed my former evil born with the flesh and that of our blood. For this, too, is mine, this blood which Christ my God poured out in restitution for ancient longings, and as a ransom for the world. - St. Gregory of Nazianzus (On God and Man, p. 74)
