A Treasury of Medicines

by Scott D. Hendricks

Great is the profit of the divine Scriptures, and all-sufficient is the aid which comes from them. . . For the divine oracles are a treasury of all manner of medicines, so that whether it be needful to quench pride, to lull desire to sleep, to tread under foot the love of money, to despise pain, to inspire confidence, to gain patience — from them one may find abundant resource.

~ St. John Chrysostom
