Patristic Quote for the Day

From the Scriptures you will learn also of His second manifestation to us, glorious and divine indeed, when He shall come not in lowliness but in His proper glory, no longer in humiliation but in majesty, no longer to suffer but to bestow on us the fruit of His cross - the resurrection and incorruptibility. No longer will He then be judged, but rather will Himself be Judge, judging each and all according to their deeds done in the body, whether good or ill. Then for the good is laid up the heavenly Kingdom, but for those that practice evil outer darkness and eternal fire. - St. Athanasius, *On the Incarnation of the Word of God* par. 56
