Patristic Quote of the Day

Just as the devil poured out his venom of sin on the tree of knowledge and corrupted human nature once it had tasted it, so when he wished to devour the flesh of the Master he was himself destroyed by the power of the Divinity within it. -- St. Maximos the Confessor, First Century on Various Texts, #11
