Patristic Quote of the Day

They should have learned from the first cleansing (cf. Jn 2) to honor His Father and His own power. They could see His works agreeing with His words, and they could behold His miracles. They could hear the prophet pointing to Him. They could see the children attesting Him in a manner beyond their age. But this did not persuade them. Instead, “they were indignant.” So He brings in Isaiah as their accuser.—St. John Chrysostom, Homily 67 on St. Matthew
