Patristic Quote of the Day

Do you see Paul's wisdom, how after having exalted them, he ascribed the whole to God by calling the thing grace? For seeing he had spoken great things of them, in that he called them ministers and exalted them unto a great height, (since they offered service while he himself did but administer ,) and termed them 'proved ,' he shows that God was the Author of all these things. And he himself again, along with them, sends up thanksgiving, saying, "Thanks be to God for His unspeakable gift!" - St. John Chrysostom, Homily on 2 Corinthians 9
