Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

Although we indeed are prepared to prove each and every one of our articles of faith that is in controversy with the Papists with the clear and lucid testimonies of the ancient fathers, and our people have done this very often, we nevertheless cannot and should not acknowledge the writings of the fathers as the norm of doctrine in the church.  -- Blessed Johann Gerhard, On the Church, p. 409
