John Chrysostom on the Ground of Our Salvation

Even if we have thousands of acts of great virtue to our credit, our confidence in being heard must be based on God's mercy and His love for men. Even if we stand at the very summit of virtue, it is by mercy that we shall be saved.

John Chrysostom
(I've noted this down without the source; I'm sure it comes from Chrysostom's sermons. Perhaps someone can help with a reference?)
