Patristic Quote of the Day

He was preeminent over those things that are under the earth, He Himself being 'the firstborn from the dead,' so that all things might behold their King and so that the Father's light might meet with and rest upon the flesh of our Lord, and come to us from His resplendent flesh, and that thus man might attain to immortality, having been invested with the Father's light.—Irenaeus, Against Heresies, 4.20.2
