Patristic Quote of the Day

To Thee, O Victor pierced by nails on the cross Who calleth out to sinners, saying:  come, receive forgiveness freely! - to Thee I unrelentingly pray, O my Savior:  turn Thine eyes away from my lawlessness, and by Thy sufferings heal my sores that I may glorify Thy kindness. -- St. Ephraim the Syrian, *A Spiritual Psalter* #8
