Patristic Quote of the Day

I am unworthy to ask forgiveness for myself, O Lord, for many times have I promised to repent and proved myself a liar by not fulfilling my promise.  Thou hast picked me up many times already, but every time I freely chose to fall again. -- St. Ephraim the Syrian, A Spiritual Psalter, #120.
