Daily Quote from the Early Church Fathers

“God the Father said: ‘I sent you One who would seek you out, walk with you, and forgive you. So he had feet to walk with and hands to forgive with. Thus, when he ascended after his resurrection, he showed hands, side, and feet: hands with which he gave pardon to sinners; and side from which flowed the ransom of the redeemed.'” (Augustine of Hippo, 354-430 A.D., excerpt from Sermon 16A,10)
