Fathers of the Church
Letter CVI. to Abraham the Oeconomus
by Theodoret in c. 449 | translated by Blomfield Jackson
By the godly bishops I salute you. I beseech you to give heed to the churches' calm, and to disperse the waves of calumny. "Whatsoever a man soweth that shall he also reap," as says the divine Apostle. Without doubt then he who fights for the apostolic doctrines shall reap the fruit of the apostolic blessing and enjoy the Apostles' devotion.
