Patristic Quote of the Day

Very persuasively Paul spoke, engendering awe. What he says is this: "That which is in the cup is that which flowed from Christ's side, and that of which we partake." But he called it a cup of blessing because holding it in our hands we so exalt Him in our hymn, wondering, astonished at His unspeakable gift, and blessing Him.—St. John Chrysostom, Homilies on 1 Corinthians, 24.3
