Patristic Quote of the Day

And in the reply, “I did not know that he was the high priest,” he spoke the truth to those who understand him. It is as though he were saying, “I have come to know another high priest, for whose name’s sake I am suffering these injuries—a high priest  whom it is not lawful to revile but whom you are reviling, because in me you hate nothing else than his name.”—St. Augustine, Sermon on the Mount 1.19.58
