Patristic Quote of the Day

Praise be to the Lord God Who does not desire the death of a sinner!
Praise be to Thee, Who hast mercy on sinners!
Praise be to Thee Who receivest the penitent!
Praise be to Thee, O Jesus, who openest Thy door to all who knock at it and beg the forgiveness of their sins!
Praise be to Thee, O Lord, and may Thy compassion be upon us!
Be merciful to us, O Jesus, our Lord.
--St. Ephraim the Syrian, A Spiritual Psalter #65
