Patristic Quote for the Day

O the miracle, O the blessings of God, who with the Father sits above and in that very point of time is handled by the hands of all and gives Himself to those who wish to receive and embrace Him! And this does not take place by any sleight of hand but before the very eyes of those who are standing there and looking around, namely, along with those earthly things which are visible there is at the same time believed to be present the very body and blood of Christ. - St. John Chrysostom, MPG 48, 642.
