Church Father Quote of the Day

O Cross, wonderful goodness of God; Cross, glory of the heavens; Cross, eternal salvation of man; Cross, terror of the wicked, strength of the just, light of the faithful. O Cross, which allowed God in flesh to become the salvation of the earth and man to reign over God in the heavens. The light of truth shined for you, and the cruel night fled.

Paulinus of Nola
Poem 19, 718-730
