Patristic Quote of the Day

Death, which had been ordered to seize the guilty, presumed to capture the Author of innocence Himself, so that just as the guilt of the human being resulted in death, so innocence would return to the human being. Consequently, having become a transgressor, death would be delivered over to Christ, death to which Adam previously had been delivered over as a result of his transgression. -- St. Peter Chrysologus, Sermon 72B par. 5
