Patristic Quote of the Day

For just as we ourselves desire to draw a veil over our sins even so does God much more than we: on this account He wrought the cure in the presence of all, but He gives the exhortation or the advice privately. For He never makes a public display of our sins, except at any time He sees men insensible to them.—St. John Chrysostom, Homily on the Paralytic, par. 3.
