Patristic quote of the day

In thee, O spotless Virgin, the laws of nature were suspended; for thy virginity was preserved in thy childbearing, and Life is joined with death. Thou, O Theotokos, didst remain a virgin after child-birth, and after death art still alive and dost ever deliver thy heritage.--St. Cozma the Anchorite, 9th ode of the Canon for Dormition.
