Patristic Quote of the Day

[from the Treasury reading appointed for Annunciation] Come, then, you, too, dearly beloved and let us chant the melody that has been taught us by the inspired harp of David and say, "Arise, O Lord, into Your rest, You and the ark of Your sanctuary." For the holy Virgin is truly an ark, made with gold both within and without, who has received the whole treasury of the Holy of Holies. - Gregory Thaumaturgus, Treasury, p. 1287
