Patristic Quote of the Day

Now, notice here that my words are exact: the seed of a man, mortal and corruptible, begets and gives birth through a woman to sons who are mortal and corruptible; the immortal and incorruptible Word of the immortal and incorruptible God, however, begets and gives birth to immortal and incorruptible children, after having been born of the virgin by the Holy Spirit. - St. Symeon the New Theologian, *On the Mystical Life* pp. 59-60
