Patristic Quote of the Day

And we therefore, if we should taste as we ought of spiritual fruits, shall thenceforth not even account the things present to be anything, being seized by the desire of the things to come as with some most noble intoxication.  Let us taste of them, therefore, that we may both be delivered from the turmoil of the things present, and may attain the good things to come. -- St. John Chrysostom, Homily 74 on St. Matthew
