Church Father Quote of the Day

Just as a flame baking clay transforms into a hard and durable body, so does the fire of the Holy Spirit work; indeed, when it descends upon a good soul, that soul becomes more solid than iron even if it appeared softer than unbaked clay up until that moment, and it makes a soul that was covered in filth of sins a moment earlier more radiant than the sun.

John Chrysostom
Homily on Holy Pentecost, 1
