Patristic Quote of the Day

For he knows that all Scripture is one perfect and harmonized instrument of God, which from different sounds gives forth one saving voice to those willing to learn.  It stops and restrains every working of an evil spirit, just as the music of David laid to rest the evil spirit in Saul, which was also choking him. —Origen, From the Second Book of the Commentary on Matthew, 2.
