Patristic Quote of the Day

Don't you know how good our Master is?  The tax collector went up full of ten thousand wickednesses, said only, "Be merciful to me," and went down justified.... What is there to equal this loving-kindness?  To the sorrowful so God speaks:  "I forgive him his sins."  -- St. John Chrysostom, Homilies on 1 Cor, 8:8.
