A Word from the Holy Fathers

“In the midst of clash of mutually destructive errors, the church stands revealed not only by her own teaching but by that of her rivals.  The church ordained by the Lord and established by His apostles, is One for all but the frantic falling of discordant sects has severed from her; and it is obvious that these dissentions concerning the faith resulted from a distorted mind, which twists the words of Scripture into conformity with its opinion, instead of adjusting that opinion to the words of the Holy Scripture”.  (St. Hilary of Poitiers)

Focusing on this text by St. Hilary of Poitiers, Fr. Irenei explores the Saint’s conviction that the multitude of heresies and errors surrounding us in the world are not to be feared or to become a cause for despair, for through their very error the Truth of Christ is revealed all the more in the Church.
