Patristic Quote of the Day

But you have reversed the order, of yourself requiring no account of offenses great or small, but being strict and curious about the offenses of others.  Let us no more do this, but leaving off this disorderly way, let us set up a tribunal in ourselves for the sins committed by ourselves, becoming ourselves accusers, and judges, and executioners for our offenses.-- St. John Chrysostom, Homily 64 on St. Matthew
