St. Gregory Nazianzen, Oration 7.22: “O you sons of men... how long will you be hard-hearted and gross in mind? Why do ye love vanity... supposing life here to be a great thing and these few days many, and shrinking from this separation, welcome and pleasant as it is, as if it were really grievous and awful?”
Pope Leo XIII: “… no gift of God either to individuals or to nations is greater than to receive by His grace the Catholic faith, and having received it, to keep it with perseverance. This gift contains an abundance of other gifts…” (Quod Multum #2, Aug. 22, 1886)
