Patristic Quote of the Day

The law did not gather the Church together, but the faith of Christ. For the law is not by faith, but the just man lives by faith. Galatians 3:11 Therefore, faith, not the law, makes a man just, for justice is not through the law, but through the faith of Christ. But he who casts aside his faith and pleads for that the claims of the law, bears witness that he is himself unjust; for the just man lives by faith.—St. Ambrose, On the Giving Up of the Basilicas, par. 24
