St. Basil, Letter 257, 4th century: “Remember that it is not the multitude who are being saved, but the elect of God. Be not then affrighted at the great multitude of the people who are carried here and there by winds like the waters of the sea.”
Pope Eugene IV: “The Holy Roman Church, founded by the voice of our Lord and Savior, firmly believes, professes, and preaches one true God, omnipotent, unchangeable, and eternal, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost… These three persons are one God, and not three gods, because of the three there is one substance, one essence, one nature, one divinity, one immensity, one eternity… It [the Holy Roman Church] condemns, rejects and anathematizes all who think opposed and contrary things, and declares them to be aliens from the Body of Christ, which is the Church.” (Council of Florence, “Cantate Domino,” 1441, ex cathedra)
