Patristic Quote of the Day

Therefore, Grace causes that sin reign not over you. Do not, therefore, have confidence of yourself, lest it thence reign much more over you. And, when we hear it said, If by the Spirit you shall mortify the deeds of the flesh, you shall live, let us not lay this so great good unto our own spirit, as though of itself it can do this. -- St. Augustine, *On Continence* par. 13
