Patristic Quote of the Day

How pitiful I am; and how pitiful is my daily repentance, for it has no firm foundation.  Every day I lay a foundation for the building, and again with my own hands I demolish it.  My repentance has not even made a good beginning as yet; yet there is no end to my wicked negligence.  -- St. Ephraim the Syrian, *A Spiritual Psalter* #10
