Teachings of Church Fathers

The Church Fathers

“We are ready to die rather than to transgress the laws of God,
received from our fathers.”
(2 Machabees 7:2)

“They were persevering in the doctrine of the apostles.
And [St. Paul] went through Syria and Cilicia,
confirming the churches, commanding them to keep
the precepts of the apostles and the ancients.”
(Acts 2:42, 15:41)

“This is the faith of the Fathers, this is the faith of the Apostles.
So we all believe, thus the orthodox believe.
Anathema to him who does not thus believe.”
(Pope St. Leo the Great, Council of Chalcedon, Session 2, 451)
