Patristic Quote of the Day

That bodily breathing, proceeding from the body with the feeling of bodily touching, was not the substance of the Holy Spirit, but a declaration by a fitting sign, that the Holy Spirit proceeds not only from the Father, but also from the Son. -- St. Augustine, NPNF1 3:84, [cited in The Lutheran Study Bible, St. Augustine's comment upon John 20:22]

I think....that you are the first person to cite a patristics quote from The Lutheran Study Bible for a blog post, or...at least the first to cite it properly to Google Alerts was able to pick it up.
