Patristic Quote of the Day

Truly He died for us, not that we might not die but that we might not die for ourselves. He was spat upon, beaten, and mutilated for us, so that we, who were worthy of all these things because of our sins, might not only suffer them but also, suffering them for the sake of justice, patiently and gracefully accept them. —Origen, Commentary on Matthew 11,3.
