Patristic Quote of the Day

Through the Man Christ you go to the God Christ. -- St. Augustine, Homily 261

Now that's truly an interesting quote. Could be understood correctly. But, truth be told, could also be exploited incorrectly. Care to elaborate?

I'd invite you to read St. Augustine's elaboration in his homily on the Ascension. Good stuff!

P.S. It reminds me too of Nagel's question to us in Systems II:

"When you begin with Christ, do you begin with God or with man? Why?"
