Patristic Quote for the Day

I have nothing. If anything is found in my possession, it is because Thou hast taken pity on me and given it to me. I am exceedingly poor; if I am to become rich it will all be a gift from Thee. It will all be Thine, just as it was Thine before. I beg only for grace - I confess that if I am to be saved, I shall be saved through Thee. - St. Ephrem, *A Spiritual Psalter* #128
