From my morning reading--Cyril of Jerusalem, quoted in John Laurence's The Sacrament of the Eucharist.
"Perhaps you did not know whither you were coming or in what kind of net you are taken. You have come within the nets of the church. Be taken alive and flee not. For Jesus is angling for you, not in order to kill, but by killing to make you alive. For you must die and rise again." (20).
