Patristic Quote of the Day

There have been in the whole duration of the world two conspicuous changes of people's lives, which are also called two testaments, on account of the wider fame of the matter; two earthquakes, the one from idols to the Law, and the other from the Law to the Gospel.  And we are taught in the Gospel of a third earthquake, namely, from this earth to that which cannot be shaken or moved.  -- St. Gregory Nazianzus, Theological Orations 32.25
