Patristic Quote of the Day

What makes us Christians?  "Our faith," everyone would answer.  How are we saved?  Obviously through the regenerating grace of baptism.  How else could we be?  We are confirmed in our understanding that salvation comes through Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.  Shall we cast away the standard of teaching we have received?  This would surely be grounds for the greatest sorrow.  -- St. Basil the Great, On the Holy Spirit, par. 25.
