Voice of the Day: Cyril on Baptism

By Administrator 03-29-2007

Great indeed is the baptism which is offered you. It is a ransom to captives; the remission of offences; the death of sin; the regeneration of the soul; the garment of light; the holy seal indissoluble; the chariot to heaven; the luxury of paradise; a procuring of the kingdom; the gift of adoption.

- Cyril, Bishop of Jerusalem (c. 315-386) from "Catechetical Lectures of S. Cyril"
