Patristic Quote of the Day

Do not say, 'I cannot bear to come near those who hate me,' but say, 'I cannot bear to despise those who despise me.'  This is the language of Christ's disciple, as much as the other is the devil's.  This makes men honorable and glorious. -- St. John Chrysostom, Homilies on Romans, 27.
