Church Fathers - Quotes from 18 Men of God

CF John Chrysostom

The Church Fathers were influential theologians, bishops and scholars whose writings explained key Christian doctrines in the early Church.

The Church Fathers were afforded personal holiness, doctrinal orthodoxy, and religious titles for their proximity to the Apostles. There explanations were sought on how to understand and apply the Christian Scripture, and their ability to teach the Catholic faith.

They are generally divided into four categories based on when or where they lived: the Apostolic Fathers, the Greek (Eastern) Fathers, the Latin (Western) Fathers, and others such as the Desert Fathers.

According to tradition, the Apostolic Fathers were empowered by the Holy Spirit and who personally handed on the oral teachings of Jesus Christ, before the New Testament canon was collected in the late 4th century and then translated into Latin by Jerome, a later Church Father.

If any one says there is one God, and also confesses Christ Jesus, but thinks the Lord to be a mere man, and not the only-begotten God, and Wisdom, and the Word of God, and deems Him to consist merely of a soul and body, such an one is a serpent, that preaches deceit and error for the destruction of men. And such a man is poor in understanding, even as by name he is an Ebionite The Epistle of Ignatius to the Philadelphians Chapter VI - Do not accept Judaism
Wherever the bishop appears, let the congregation be there also. Just as, wherever Jesus Christ is, there is the Catholic Church. It is manifest, therefore, that we should look upon the bishop even as we would look upon the Lord Himself, standing, as he does, before the Lord Epistle to the Smyrnaeans, 105 A.D
Since, also, there is but one unbegotten Being, God, even the Father; and one only-begotten Son, God, the Word and man; and one Comforter, the Spirit of truth; and also one preaching, and one faith, and one baptism; and one Church which the holy apostles established from one end of the earth to the other by the blood of Christ, and by their own sweat and toil The Epistle of Ignatius to the Philadelphians Chapter IV

The day of the preparation, then, comprises the passion; the Sabbath embraces the burial; the Lord's Day [Sunday] contains the resurrection The Epistle of Ignatius to the Trallians Longer Versions. Chapter IX
I have no taste for corruptible food nor for the pleasures of this life. I desire the bread of God, which is the flesh of Jesus Christ, who was of the seed of David; and for drink I desire His blood, which is love incorruptible Epistle to the Romans, 105 A.D
Make certain, therefore, that you all observe one common Eucharist; for there is but one Body of our Lord Jesus Christ, and but one cup of union with his Blood, and one single altar of sacrifice - even as there is also but one bishop, with his clergy and my own fellow servitors, the deacons Letter to the Philadelphians 4 [A.D. 110]

For they who affirm that the Son is the Father, are proved neither to have become acquainted with the Father, nor to know that the Father of the universe has a Son; who also, being the first-begotten Word of God, is even God.

And of old He appeared in the shape of fire and in the likeness of an angel to Moses and to the other prophets; but now in the times of your reign, having, as we before said, become Man by a virgin, according to the counsel of the Father, for the salvation of those who believe on Him, He endured both to be set at nought and to suffer, that by dying and rising again He might conquer death.

And that which was said out of the bush to Moses, "I am that I am, the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, and the God of your fathers", this signified that they, even though dead, are yet in existence, and are men belonging to Christ Himself The First Apology Chapter LXIII - How God appeared to Moses
For next to God, we worship and love the Word who is from the unbegotten and ineffable God, since also He became man for our sakes, that becoming a partaker of our sufferings, He might also bring us healing Second Apology Chapter XIII - How the Word has been in all men
For the prophetical gifts remain with us [Christians], even to the present time. And hence you [Jews] ought to understand that [the gifts] formerly among your [Jewish] nation have been transferred to us Dialogue with Trypho the Jew 82 [A.D. 155]
But Sunday is the day on which we all hold our common assembly, because it is the first day on which God, having wrought a change in the darkness and matter, made the world; and Jesus Christ our Saviour on the same day rose from the dead.

For He was crucified on the day before that of Saturn (Saturday); and on the day after that of Saturn, which is the day of the Sun, having appeared to His apostles and disciples, He taught them these things, which we have submitted to you also for your consideration First Apology Chapter LXVII - Weekly worship of the Christians. [A.D. 155]
As, then, circumcision began with Abraham, and the Sabbath and sacrifices and offerings and feasts with Moses, and it has been proved they were enjoined on account of the hardness of your people's heart, so it was necessary, in accordance with the Father's will, that they should have an end in Him who was born of a virgin, of the family of Abraham and tribe of Judah, and of David; in Christ the Son of God, who was proclaimed as about to come to all the world, to be the everlasting law and the everlasting covenant, even as the forementioned prophecies show The Second Apology of Justin for the Christians Addressed to the Roman Senate. Chapter XLIII
Not as common bread nor common drink do we receive these; but as we have been taught, the food which has been made into the Eucharist by the Eucharistic prayer set down by Him, and by the change of which our blood and flesh is nourished, is both the Flesh and Blood of that incarnated Jesus First Apology, 150 A.D

We shall turn to that great, ancient and universally known church founded and organized at Rome by the two most glorious apostles Peter and Paul, and we shall show that the tradition it has received of the apostles and the faith that it preaches to men has come down to our time through the regular succession of its bishops Against Heresies 3:3:3 [A.D. 189]
When, therefore, the mixed cup (wine and water) and the baked bread receives the Word of God and becomes the Eucharist, the Body of Christ, and from these the substance of our flesh is increased and supported, how can they say that the flesh is not capable of receiving the gift of God, which is nourished by the Body and Blood of the Lord, and is in fact a member of Him?

Book I Chapter I. The Office of the Instructor Chapter II - Our Instructor's Treatment of Our Sins
To this child additional testimony is borne by John, "the greatest prophet among those born of women:" Behold the Lamb of God!" For since Scripture calls the infant children lambs, it has also called Him - God the Word who became man for our sakes, and who wished in all points to be made like to us "the Lamb of God" The Instructor. Book I Chapter V - All Who Walk According to Truth are Children of God
'Eat my flesh,' [Jesus] says, 'and drink my blood.' The Lord supplies us with these intimate nutrients, he delivers over his flesh and pours out his blood, and nothing is lacking for the growth of his children The Instructor of Children 1:6:43:3 [A.D. 191]

This Man we know to have been made out of the compound of our humanity. For if He were not of the same nature with ourselves, in vain does He ordain that we should imitate the Teacher.

For if that Man happened to be of a different substance from us, why does He lay injunctions similar to those He has received on myself, who am born weak; and how is this the act of one that is good and just? The Refutation of All Heresies. The 10th book of the Refutation of all Heresies

Now, if any one were to say that, through those who are partakers of the "Word" of God, or of His "Wisdom," or His "Truth," or His "Life," the Word and Wisdom itself appeared to be contained in a place, we should have to say to him in answer, that there is no doubt that Christ, in respect of being the "Word" or "Wisdom," or all other things, was in Paul, and that he therefore said, "Do you seek a proof of Christ speaking in me?" and again, "I live, yet not I, but Christ liveth in me [Paul] Origen De Principiis. Book IV Chapter I.29 - On the Inspiration of Holy Scripture
Having, then, briefly restated these points regarding the nature of the Trinity, it follows that we notice shortly this statement also, that "by the Son" are said to be created "all things that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by Him [Jesus], and for Him; and He [Jesus] is before all, and all things consist by Him, who is the Head Origen De Principiis.

Book I Chapter III
Formerly there was baptism in an obscure way ... now, however, in full view, there is regeneration in water and in the Holy Spirit. Formerly, in an obscure way, there was manna for food; now, however, in full view, there is the true food, the flesh of the Word of God, as he himself says: 'My flesh is true food, and my blood is true drink' [John 6:55] Homilies on Numbers 7:2 [A.D. 248]

But it was not the custom of the churches in the rest of the world ... as they observed the practice which, from apostolic tradition, has prevailed to the present time, of terminating the fast [of Lent] on no other day than on that of the resurrection of the Savior [Sunday] Church History 5:23:1–24:11
They [the early saints of the Old Testament] did not care about circumcision of the body, neither do we [Christians]. They did not care about observing Sabbaths, nor do we. They did not avoid certain kinds of food, neither did they regard the other distinctions which Moses first delivered to their posterity to be observed as symbols; nor do Christians of the present day do such things Church History 1:4:8 [A.D. 312]

As we said above, so now we repeat, that the divine generation must not be compared to the nature of men, nor the Son considered to be part of God, nor the generation to imply any passion whatever; God is not as man; for men beget passibly, having a transitive nature, which waits for periods by reason of its weakness.

But with God this cannot be; for He is not composed of parts, but being impassible and simple, He is impassibly and indivisibly Father of the Son Four discourses against the Arians Discourse I.28
Therefore the Image of the unalterable God must be unchangeable; for 'Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, to-day, and for ever .'

They shall perish, but Thou remainest; and they all shall wax old as doth a garment Four discourses against the Arians Discourse I.36
Let us note that the very tradition, teaching, and faith of the Catholic Church from the beginning, which the Lord gave, was preached by the Apostles, and was preserved by the Fathers. On this was the Church founded; and if anyone departs from this, he neither is nor any longer ought to be called a Christian Four Letters to Serapion of Thmuisc, 360 A.D

When you see the Lord immolated and lying upon the altar, and the priest bent over that sacrifice praying, and all the people empurpled by that precious blood, can you think that you are still among men and on earth? Or are you not lifted up to heaven? The Priesthood 3:4:177 [A.D. 387]
For though few are now circumcised, yet, by fasting and observing the sabbath with the Jews, they equally exclude themselves from grace. If Christ avails not to those who are only circumcised, much more is peril to be feared where fasting and sabbatizing are observed, and thus two commandments of the Law are kept in the place of one Homilies on Galatians 2:17 [A.D. 395]
Behold on Christmas a new and wondrous reality. The angels sing and the archangels blend their voices in harmony ... All join to praise this holy feast, beholding the Godhead here on earth and man in heaven.

He is God become man, yet not departing from His Godhead John Chrysostom
God maintained the order of each sex by dividing the business of life into two parts, and assigned the more necessary and beneficial aspects to the man and the less important, inferior matter to the woman The Kind of Women who ought to be taken as Wives

Now, from this one passage (Psalm 110:1, Hebrews 1:13) of the epistle of the inspired apostle, we have been already able to show that the Father and the Son are two separate Persons, not only by the mention of their separate names as Father and the Son, but also by the fact that He who delivered up the kingdom, and He to whom it is delivered up Against Praxeas Chapter IV - The Unity of the Godhead and the Supremacy and Sole Government of the Divine Being
That there are, however, two Gods or two Lords, is a statement which at no time proceeds out of our mouth: not as if it were untrue that the Father is God, and the Son is God, and the Holy Ghost is God, and each is God; but because in earlier times Two were actually spoken of as God, and two as Lord, that when Christ should come He might be both acknowledged as God and designated as Lord, being the Son of Him who is both God and Lord Against Praxeas Chapter XIII
The numerical order and distribution of the Trinity they assume to be a division of the Unity; whereas the Unity which derives the Trinity out of its own self is so far from being destroyed, that it is actually supported by it.

They are constantly throwing out against us that we are preachers of two gods and three gods, while they take to themselves pre-eminently the credit of being worshippers of the One God Against Praxeas Chapter III
For if circumcision purges a man, since God made Adam uncircumcised, why did he not circumcise him, even after his sinning, if circumcision purges? ... Therefore, since God originated Adam uncircumcised and unobservant of the Sabbath, consequently his offspring also, Abel, offering him sacrifices, uncircumcised and unobservant of the Sabbath, was by him [God] commended ... Noah also, uncircumcised—yes, and unobservant of the Sabbath—God freed from the deluge An Answer to the Jews Chapter II - The Law Anterior to Moses. [A.D. 203]
But you, many of you, also under pretence sometimes of worshipping the heavenly bodies, move your lips in the direction of the sunrise. In the same way, if we devote Sun-day to rejoicing, from a far different reason than Sun-worship, we have some resemblance to those of you who devote the day of Saturn to ease and luxury, though they too go far away from Jewish ways, of which indeed they are ignorant Apology Chapter XVI
For though you think that heaven is still shut up, remember that the Lord left the keys of it to Peter here, and through him to the Church, which keys everyone will carry with him if he has been questioned and made a confession [of faith] Antidote Against the Scorpion 10 [A.D. 211]

It is not possible to set up another altar or for there to be another priesthood besides that one altar and that one priesthood. Whoever has gathered elsewhere is scattering Letters 43[40]:5 [A.D. 253]
When we say, 'Do you believe in eternal life and the remission of sins through the holy Church?' we mean that remission of sins is not granted except in the Church Letters 69[70]:2 [A.D. 253]
Finally, when, after the resurrection, the apostles are sent by the Lord to the heathens, they are bidden to baptize the Gentiles "in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost."

How, then, do some say, that a Gentile baptized without, outside the Church, yea, and in opposition to the Church, so that it be only in the name of Jesus Christ, everywhere, and in whatever manner, can obtain remission of sin, when Christ Himself commands the heathen to be baptized in the full and united Trinity? Epistle LXXII.5.18
A wife must not depart from her husband. Or, if she should depart, she must remain unmarried Testimonies, 250 A.D

Jerome | 342-420 AD LATIN
Jerome is a reputable Christian apologist and a source of many historical facts concerning Christian history
  • Jerome is best known as the translator of the Bible from Greek and Hebrew into Latin
  • Jerome and Origen, only two Church Fathers conversant in Greek and Hebrew language
  • Jerome was a scholar with a reputation for being offensive to his fellow scholars
  • His edition of the Bible, the Vulgate, is still an important text of the Roman Catholic Church
  • Jerome surrounded himself by wealthy women in Rome and was involved in a series of scandals. He left Rome in disgrace, after one of his female acolytes died from the severity of her bodily mortification
  • Jerome settled in Bethlehem, along with selected women followers
We believe that God was born of a virgin, because we read it. We do not believe that Mary was married after she brought forth her Son, because we do not read it.

You [Helvidius] say that Mary did not remain a virgin. As for myself, I claim that Joseph himself was a virgin, through Mary, so that a virgin Son might be born of a virginal wedlock Against Helvidius: The Perpetual Virginity of Mary 21 [A.D. 383]
But I wonder why he (the heretic Jovianianus) set Judah and Tamar before us for an example, unless perchance even harlots give him pleasure; or Onan, who was slain because he grudged his brother seed. Does he imagine that we approve of any sexual intercourse except for the procreation of children? Against Jovinian 393 A.D
You may see a number of women who are widows before they are wives. Other, indeed, will drink sterility and murder a man not yet born [in abortion] Letter 22, 396 A.D
15 of 18
Augustine | 354-430 AD LATIN
Augustine, the bishop of Hippo, was a philosopher, theologian, a Latin Father and influential church leader in North Africa
  • Augustine's works remain among the most influential in Western Christian history
  • Augustine framed the concept of Original Sin and related teachings on Divine Grace, Free Will and Predestination, as well as the theory of just War
  • In his early life, Augustine read widely in Greco-Roman rhetoric and philosophy, including the works of Platonists such as Plotinus.
  • Augustine was born in present-day Algeria to a Christian mother, Monica of Hippo. He was educated in North Africa and resisted his mother's pleas to become Christian
  • In 374 AD, he took a mistress and became a Manichean, a rival religion founded by Iranian prophet Mani
  • He later converted to Christianity, and became a bishop
  • Augustine introduced new doctrines into the Christian Church, influenced by his Manichean phase
  • Augustines views about the evils of sex seem to be due to his lingering guilt about his mistresses; he had unorthodox views on contraception; he was predestinarian (believing people are powerless to change their destiny); he held unorthodox views on the death of Virgin Mary, contrary to Roman dogma
  • Augustine is known as the Father of the Inquisition, and his writings were used to justify a range of Christian teachings including the treatment of heretics and acceptability of Christian slavery
In being born of a Virgin who chose to remain a Virgin even before she knew who was to be born of her, Christ wanted to approve virginity rather than to impose it. And he wanted virginity to be of free choice even in that woman in whom he took upon himself the form of a slave Holy Virginity, 401 A.D
It was not the visible sun, but its invisible Creator who consecrated this day for us, when the Virgin Mother, fertile of womb and integral in her virginity, brought him forth, made visible for us, by whom, when he was invisible, she too was created. A Virgin conceiving, a Virgin bearing, a Virgin pregnant, a Virgin bringing forth, a Virgin perpetual. Why do you wonder at this, O man? Sermon 186, 411 A.D
Wake up, O human being! For it was for you that God was made man. Rise up and realize it was all for you. Eternal death would have awaited you had He not been born in time. Never would you be freed from your sinful flesh had He not taken to Himself the likeness of sinful flesh. Everlasting would be your misery had He not performed this act of mercy Augustine
Similar evidence has been collected also concerning the Holy Spirit, of which those who have discussed the subject before ourselves have most fully availed themselves, that He too is God, and not a creature. But if not a creature, then not only God (for men likewise are called gods), but also very God; and therefore absolutely equal with the Father and the Son, and in the unity of the Trinity consubstantial and co-eternal On the Trinity Book I. Chapter 6.13
Those holy angels come to the knowledge of God not by audible words, but by the presence to their souls of immutable truth, i.e., of the only-begotten Word of God; and they know this Word Himself, and the Father, and their Holy Spirit, and that this Trinity is indivisible, and that the three persons of it are one substance, and that there are not three Gods but one God Augustine The City of God Book 11 Chapter 29
So, when you ask why a Christian does not keep the Sabbath, if Christ came not to destroy the law, but to fulfill it, my reply is, that a Christian does not keep the Sabbath precisely because what was prefigured in the Sabbath is fulfilled in Christ. For we have our Sabbath in Him Reply to Faustus the Manichæan. Book XIX-9
What you see is the bread and the chalice; that is what your own eyes report to you. But what your faith obliges you to accept is that the bread is the body of Christ and the chalice is the blood of Christ Sermons 272 [A.D. 411]
Who is ignorant that the first of the apostles is the most blessed Peter? Commentary on John 56:1 [A.D. 416]
Whoever is separated from this Catholic Church, by this single sin of being separated from the unity of Christ, no matter how estimable a life he may imagine he is living, shall not have life, but the wrath of God rests upon him Letters 141:5 [A.D. 412]
For necessary sexual intercourse for begetting (children) is alone worthy of marriage. But that which goes beyond this necessity no longer follows reason but lust The Good of Marriage, 401 A.D
If a man leaves his wife and she marries another, she commits adultery On the Good of Marriage 401 A.D

Gregory | 540-604 AD LATIN
Pope Gregory I reigned as bishop of Rome
  • Gregory was the first of the popes from a monastic background
  • Gregory did much to solidify the leadership of the Roman church
17 of 18
Ambrose | 338-397 AD LATIN
Ambrose was the bishop of Milan who became one of the most influential ecclesiastical figures of the 4th century
  • Ambrose promoted the rights of the church in relation to the imperial state
  • Ambrose is counted as one of the four original Doctors of the Church
  • He was also the teacher of Augustine
The Church was redeemed at the price of Christ's blood. Jew or Greek, it makes no difference; but if he has believed, he must circumcise himself from his sins [in baptism (Col. 2:11-12)] so that he can be saved.

For no one ascends into the kingdom of heaven except through the sacrament of baptism. Unless a man be born again of water and the Holy Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God On Abraham 2:11:79-84
Lift me up not from Sara but from Mary, a virgin not only undefiled but a virgin whom grace had made inviolate, free of every stain of sin Commentary on Psalm 118, 387 A.D
