Patristic Quote of the Day

Meet their animosity with mildness; their high words with humility, and their abuse with prayers. But stand firm against their errors, and if they grow violent, be gentle instead of wanting to pay them back in their own coin.—St. Ignatius of Antioch, To the Ephesians, par. 10
