Patristic Quote for the Day

Effects comprise all created things in heaven and earth, while the causes that have brought them into being are the three Persons of the Holy Trinity. It is therefore clear that there can be no exact resemblance between the two. - St. Maximos the Confessor, Fifth Century on Various Texts, par. 67 (aka "farewell to analogia entis?")
