Patristic Quote of the Day

Thy blows are filled with love. Thy punishments burn with compassion. In accordance with Thy love, even when Thou punishest Thou strivest only for good. -- St. Ephraim the Syrian, *A Spiritual Psalter* #124

Hi, Mike. A blessed Nativity to you. I have *A Spiritual Psalter* and keep it handy at my desk. I like to read a bit from it each day.
