Patristic Quote for the Day

Altogether vain are they who deny the salvation of the flesh and despise its regeneration, saying that it is not capable of incorruption. But if it will not be saved, in truth, the Lord has not redeemed us by His blood, nor is the cup of the Eucharist the communication of His Blood, nor the bread which we break the communication of His body; for blood is not save of veins and flesh, and of the rest of human substance, in which the Word of God was truly made. -- St. Irenaues, Against Heresies, Book 4, Chapter 18
