Patristic Quote for the Day

If you have hurt a person by abusing him, or by cursing or grossly accusing him, be careful to make amends for the harm you have done, as quickly as possible, by apologizing to him. And the one who has been hurt should be ready in his turn to forgive you without wrangling. Brothers who have insulted eachh other should "forgive each other's trespasses"; if you fail to do this, your praying the Our Father become a lie. Indeed, the more you pray, the more honest your prayer ought to become. -- St. Augustine *The Rule* 6:2
