Patristic Quote for the Day

Therefore, since the sin of our first parent had doomed us by giving death the right to hold us under its sway, Christ, our heavenly and true Parent, by having removed our condemnation to death by means of his own death, justifies us by his Resurrection, so that it would not be the guilty, but their guilt, that would perish; and so that the punishment itself, that is, death, which had been ordered to strike down the guilty, would rightly fail and lose the power that was its trademark. (St. Peter Chrysologus, Sermon 110:4)

Where are you getting these excellent quotes of St. Peter Chrysologus from?

I tried calling last night, but Lauren said something about you and Cin having loads of fun at some banquet ;)
