St. Alphonsus: “My brother, in this picture of death behold yourself, and what you will one day become: ‘Remember that thou art dust, and to dust thou shalt return.’ Consider that in a few years, perhaps months or days, thou wilt become rottenness and worms. This thought made Job a saint: ‘I have said to rottenness, Thou art my father; to worms, My mother and my sister’ (Job. 17:14).”
Second Council of Constantinople, Canon 1, 553: “If anyone does not confess one nature or essence of Father and Son and Holy Spirit, and one power and authority, a consubstantial Trinity to be worshipped as one Godhead in three hypostases or persons, let such a one be anathema.”
