Patristic Quote of the Day

Even so did Christ act: He represses first of all the source of the evil. For the source and root and mother of all evil is the nature of sin. This it is which enervates our bodies: this it is which brings on disease: therefore also on this occasion He said, "Son! Be of good cheer, your sins are forgiven you."—St. John Chrysostom, Sermon on the Paralytic, paragraph 5.
