Church Father Quote of the Day

Everything that affects us is carried out and fulfilled through it. When we ned to be renewed by Baptism, the Cross is present; when we nourish ourselves on that mystical food which is the Body of Christ, when hands are laid upon us in consecration to the ministry of the Lord, or when we do anything else, this symbol of victory is always and everywhere alongside us, sustaining us.

John Chrysostom
Homilies on the Gospel of Matthew, 54, 4-5

Lent and Easter with the Early Church Fathers
Marco Pappalardo
