Patristic Quote for the Day

THY WILL BE DONE AS IN HEAVEN SO ON EARTH. The divine and blessed Angels do the will of God, as David in a Psalm has said, *Bless the Lord, ye His Angels, that excel in strength, that do His commandments.* So then, thou meanest by thy prayer, 'as Thy will is done by the Angels, so be it done also on earth by me, Lord.' - St. Cyril of Jerusalem, Mystagogical Catechesis V:14
