The Quote of the Week...
Over the past little bit I have be trying to think of something that I could contribute on a regular basis to this blog and I have always enjoyed reading and collecting good quotes. So I thought I would start a new segment called "Quote of the Week" (What an incredibly original name, eh). Anyway, since this is the first installment I thought it would only make sense to quote the patristic blog-leader himself:
"Let us, therefore, forsake the vanity of the crowd and their false teachings and turn back to the word delivered to us from the beginning, "watching unto prayer" and continuing steadfast in fasting, beseeching fervently the all-seeing God "to lead us not into temptation," even as the Lord said, "The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak." ~ Polycarp (69-156)
