Patristic Quote of the Day

A marvelous thing! We are evil. yet we have a good Father. What could be clearer? We have heard our proper name: 'You then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children.' See what kind of Father our Lord shows them, whom He called evil. 'How much more will your Father?' Father of whom? Undoubtedly of those who are evil. And what kind of Father? 'No one is good except God alone.'—St. Augustine, Sermons on Selected Lessons of the New Testament, 11.2
