Patristic Quote of the Day

This we also do; when we see any one listening carelessly, and when with much entreaty we cannot persuade him to attend, it remains for us to be silent. For if we are still to go on, his carelessness is aggravated. But him that is striving to learn, we lead on, and pour in much. -- St. John Chrysostom, Homily 45 on St. Matthew
