Patristic Quote of the Day

But he [Judas] profited nothing. Yet not for that did the Lord cease to do His part.  Knowing this, then, let us also not intermit to do all things unto them that sin and are remiss, warning, teaching, exhorting, admonishing, advising, though we profit nothing. For Christ indeed foreknew that the traitor was incorrigible, yet nevertheless He ceased not to supply what could be done by Himself, as well admonishing as threatening and bewailing over him, and nowhere plainly, nor openly, but in a concealed way. -- St. John Chrysostom, Homily 80 on St. Matthew
