Patristic Quote of the Day

Our soul, my brothers, is unlovely because of our iniquity. By loving God it becomes lovely. What a love that must be that makes the lover beautiful! But God is always lovely, never unlovely, and never changeable.... He loves us not to leave us foul; no, but to change us, and from unlovely He makes us lovely.—St. Augustine, Homilies on 1 John
