Patristic Quote for the Day

He was the Only-begotten of the Father and also the Only-begotten of Mary. And he who divides the hypostasis in Him will also be separated from His kingdom, and he who conjoins His natures will be deprived of the life that is of Him. He who denies that Mary gave birth to God will not see the glory of His divinity, and he who denies that He was clothed in sinless flesh will receive neither salvation nor the life which is granted through His body. His very deeds give witness and His divine strength teach the contemptuous that He is true God. And His sufferings give proof that He is true man. - St. Ephrem the Syrian *A Spiritual Psalter* #15
