Patristic Quote of the Day

Jesus rises from the waters; the world rises with him. The heavens like Paradise with its flaming sword, closed by Adam for himself and his descendants, are rent open. The Spirit comes to him as an equal, bearing witness to His Godhead. A Voice bears witness to Him from heaven, His place of origin. -- St. Gregory Nazianzus, *Sermon on Theophany* (*Christian Prayer* p. 1967)

Nice. The world rises with him.

As much as one reads the fathers there is always more. The church has deep foundations does she not?
