Patristic Quote of the Day

Let us glorify and worship Jesus, the Word of God, Who, according to His love, came to save us by His cross and is coming again to resurrect Adam's children in the great day when His majesty shall shine forth.  Grieve not, ye mortals, over your corruption.  Christ the King shall shine forth from on high; He who is omnipotent shall beckon and thus raise the dead from their graves, and clothe them with glory in His kingdom. -- St. Ephraim the Syrian, A Spiritual Psalter, #149
