Patristic Quote of the Day

But mark thou, I pray you, how when the apostles had failed, and had not succeeded, this woman [the Canaanite woman] had success. So great a thing is assiduity in prayer. Yea, He had even rather be solicited by us, guilty as we are, for those who belong to us, than by others in our behalf. -- St. John Chrysostom, Homily 52 on St. Matthew.
