Patristic Quote of the Day

Let us think nothing our own, seeing even faith itself is not our own, but more God's (than ours). For by grace are you saved through faith; and this, says he, not of ourselves; it is the gift of God. Then let us not think great things of ourselves, nor be puffed up, being as we are, men, dust and ashes, smoke and shadow.—St. John Chrysostom, Homily 30 on Acts
