Patristic Quote of the Day

What then is the solution of these things? Or what fair account of them can we give? That Christ was not the cause of their slaughter, but the king's cruelty; as indeed neither was Peter to those others, but the madness of Herod.—St. John Chrysostom, Homily 9 on Matthew (Slaughter of the Holy Innocents)
