Church Father Quote of the Day

Virtually everyone fears the death of the body, so few the death of the soul. Everyone worries about the death of the body, which must happen sooner or later, and does everything possible to avert it. … Yet all that one does to avoid death is in vain: at best one can only delay it, but never escape it.

St. Augustine
Tractates on the Gospel of St John, 49, 2
