On this date, March 18, 386, Cyril, bishop of Jerusalem died.

During seminary, I read several quotes from him and this one has stuck with me.

“Keep careful watch, to ensure that the enemy does not make off with any who are off guard or remiss; and that no heretic may pervert part of what you have been given. Accepting the faith is like putting into the bank the money we have given you; God will ask you for an account of this deposit.”

Keep careful watch
