Patristic Quote of the Day

He raises up from the depths of sin those who have fallen from resurrection.  He accomplishes all things by His powerful touch.  He shepherds, He enlightens, He nourishes, He leads, He heals, He raises up.  He calls all things from non-existence into being; once things are created, He keeps them in existence.  Thus God's blessings reach us through the Son. -- St. Basil the Great, *On the Holy Spirit* par. 19.
