Daily Quote from the Early Church Fathers

“God sent the human race a physician, a savior, One Who healed without charging a fee. Christ also came to reward those who would be healed by Him. Christ heals the sick, and He makes a gift to those whom He heals. And the gift that He makes is Himself!” (Augustine of Hippo, 354-430 A.D., excerpt from Sermon 102,2)
