Patristic Quote of the Day

The presbyter accordingly is the same as a bishop... Therefore as the presbyters know that they are subject to the one who has been placed over them by an ecclesiastical custom, so the bishops should know that they are greater than presbyters more through custom than through the verity of an ordinance of the Lord and that they all ought to rule the church in common.—St. Jerome, Commentary on Titus 1:5
