Patristic Quote for the Day

Rather, since it is through death that God arranged to give us the Kingdom of the Resurrection, and incorruptibility and all of life everlasting, yet we already, without a doubt, become in soul partakers and communicants here below of the future good things, and as it were incorruptible and immortal and sons of God and sons of light and of the day, heirs of the Kingdom of heaven. -- St. Symeon the New Theologian, *On the Mystical Life* p. 164
