Quotes of the Early Fathers and Christians of the Church:

"Let it be your first care not to deceive yourself."

--St. Melito of Sardis (165-180AD) on the Search

Mini-Bio: Asian; Bishop, prominent ecclesiastical writer

"Do not wish to be anything but what you are, And try to be that perfectly."
--Saint Francis de Sales (1567-1622), French Roman Catholic preacher, Doctor of the Church.

"You cannot visit the child without visiting the mother; you cannot in common life approach a child except through the mother. If we are to think of Christ in this aspect at all, the other idea follows as it is followed in history. We must either leave Christ out of Christmas, or Christmas out of Christ, or we must admit, if only as we admit it in an old picture, that those holy heads are too near together for the haloes not to mingle and cross."
--G.K. Chesterton, The Everlasting Man
(I just like Chesterton !)
