Patristic Quote for the Day

Make certain, therefore, that you all observe one common Eucharist; for there is but one Body of our Lord Jesus and also but one cup of union with His Blood, and one single altar of sacrifice - even as there also there is but one bishop, with his clergy and all my fellow-servitors the deacons. This will ensure that all your doings are in full accord with the will of God. - St. Ignatius of Antioch, Philadelphians 4.
