Patristic Quote of the Day

Forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. Matthew 6:12 Whosoever shall deny that this prayer is in this life necessary for every righteous man who knows and does the will of God, except the one Saint of saints, greatly errs, and is utterly incapable of pleasing Him whom he praises.—St. Augustine, On Merit and the Forgiveness of Sins, and the Baptism of Infants Book III:Chapter 23.
