St. Basil, Letter 156: “Indeed, when I look round, I seem to have no one on my side. I can but pray I may be found in the number of those seven thousand who have not bowed the knee to Baal. I know the present persecutors of us all seek my life; yet that shall not diminish ought of the zeal which I owe to the Churches of God.”
St. Robert Bellarmine, De Amissione Gratiae et Statu Peccati, Book 4, Chap. 11: “… although the image of God properly resides in the soul, nevertheless by reason of the soul the whole man is rightly said to be made to the image of God.”
