Patristic Quote of the Day

In expounding holy Scriptures, I am, so to speak, now breaking the bread for you. If you hunger to receive it, your heart will sing out with the fullness of praise. And if you are thus made rich in your banquet, why would you then be niggardly in good works and deeds of mercy? What I am distributing to you is not my own. What you feast upon, I also feast upon.—St. Augustine, Sermons on the NT 4.5.1
