Patristic Quote of the Day

The life in Christ originates in this life and arises from it.  It is perfected, however, in the life to come, when we shall have reached that last day.  It cannot attain perfection in men's souls in this life, nor even in that which is to come without already having begun here.  -- St. Nicholas Cabasilas, *The Life in Christ* p. 43
