Patristic Quote of the Day

Earth does not cover over the blood of our Redeemer, for every sinner, as he drinks the blood that is the price of his redemption, offers praise and thanksgiving, and to the best of his power makes that blood known to all around him. Earth has not hidden away his blood, for holy Church has preached in every corner of the world the mystery of its redemption. - St. Gregory the Great, *Moral Reflections on Job* (Christian Prayer, pp. 1976, 1977)
