Patristic Quote of the Day

For the grace of God through Jesus Christ our Lord must be apprehended,— as that by which alone men are delivered from evil, and without which they do absolutely no good thing, whether in thought, or will and affection, or in action; not only in order that they may know, by the manifestation of that grace, what should be done, but moreover in order that, by its enabling, they may do with love what they know. -- St. Augustine, On Rebuke and Grace, II.3
