Patristic Quote of the Day

This man then let us also emulate, and forsaking luxury and drunkenness, let us go over unto the life of restraint. For this surely is the time of confession both for the uninitiated and for the baptized; for the one, that upon their repentance they may partake of the sacred mysteries; for the others, that having washed away their stain after baptism, they may approach the table with a clean conscience.—St. John Chrysostom, Homily 10 on St. Matthew
