Patristic Quote of the Day

Yet, why is it strange if He has made men devoted sons of God, since He gave Himself and made Himself into the Son of Man? At that time He raised the nature of flesh into one divine, when He brought His divinity down to human nature. At that time He made man co-heir with Himself among the dwellers of heaven, when He made Himself the sharer of the things of earth. He took upon Himself everything characteristic of man, even sin and death; then what love, what gift, could He refuse man? -- St. Peter Chrysologus, To the Catechumens on the Lord's Prayer
