Patriotic Quote of the Day

Let no one, then, on this subject be either deceived or a deceiver. The manifest sense of Holy Scripture, which we have considered, removes all obscurities. Even as death is in this our mortal body derived from the beginning, so from the beginning has sin been drawn into this sinful flesh of ours, for the cure of which, both as it is derived by propagation and augmented by wilful transgression, as well as for the quickening of our flesh itself, our Physician came in the likeness of sinful flesh, who is not needed by the sound, but only by the sick—and who came not to call the righteous, but sinners.—St. Augustine, On Merit and the Remission of Sins and the Baptism of Infants, Book III:21
