Getting to know the Fathers

Outside of the New Testament, there may be no Christian writings that put us more in touch with the faith than the Fathers of the Church. Some of the earlier Fathers actually knew the Apostles. Christians seeking to grow in their faith would do well to “tolle, lege” — take up and read — the Fathers of the Church, to quote one of the better-known Church Fathers, St. Augustine of Hippo.
