Patristic Quote of the Day

What He commands is not difficult, since He helps to effect what He commands… Just as we are lost through loving ourselves, so we are found by denying ourselves. Love of self was the ruin of the first man. If he had not loved himself in the wrong order, he would have been willing to be subject to God, preferring God to self.—Caesarius of Arles, Sermon 159.
