Church Father Quote of the Day

The present time of weeping, symbolized by the forty days of Lent, is the time in which we live and which we symbolize in ourselves; the time of joy, peace, and reigning, symbolized by the days of the Pentecost, is expressed by our alleluia, though we do not yet truly possess these praises. But for now, we pine for the alleluia.
