Patristic Quote of the Day

For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believes. Romans 10:4 But The End He is called, not because He consumes, but because He perfects. For ended call we the food which is eaten, and ended the coat which is woven, the former to consumption, the latter to perfection. Because then we have not where to go farther when we have come to Christ, Himself is called the end of our course. -- St. Augustine on Psalm 46.

I've also read "Christ is the GOAL of the law". What do you think of this translation?
