Patristic Quote of the Day

Death has become like a tyrant who has been completely conquered by the legitimate monarch; bound hand and foot as he now is, the passers-by jeer at him, hitting him and abusing him, no longer afraid of his cruelty and rage, because of the King who has conquered him. -- St. Athanasius, *On the Incarnation* par. 27
