Fathers of the Church
Letter LV. Festal
by Theodoret in Unknown | translated by Blomfield Jackson
We are much distressed, for we are gifted with the nature not of rocks but of men, but the recollection of the Lord's Epiphany has been to me a very potent medicine; so at once I write, according to the custom of the feast, and salute your magnificence with a prayer that you may live in prosperity and repute.
