Daily Quote from the Early Church Fathers

“As Christians, our task is to make daily progress toward God. Our pilgrimage on earth is a school in which God is the only teacher, and it demands good students, not ones who play truant. In this school we learn something every day. We learn something from commandments, something from examples, and something from sacraments. These things are remedies for our wounds and materials for study.” (Augustine of Hippo, 354-430 A.D., excerpt from Sermon 218c,1)
