Patristic Quote of the Day

This faith which is given by the Spirit as a grace is not just doctrinal faith but a faith which empowers activities surpassing human nature, a faith which can move mountains…For such a one places the thought of God before his mind and as enlightenment of faith permits it, beholds God. His mind also ranges through the world from end to end, and with the end of this age not yet come, beholds the judgment already, and the bestowal of promised rewards.—St. Cyril of Jerusalem, Catechetical Lecture on Faith 5.11
