Patristic Quote of the Day

For indeed, baptism is both a burial and a resurrection. ‘For the old man is buried in sin, and the new one, being renewed in the image of the Creator, rises up.’ We put off and we put on. We put off the old garment, tattered by the multitude of sins, and we put on the new one, free from every stain. But what am I saying? We put on Christ Himself: ‘For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ.’—St John Chrysostom, On the Newly Illumined
