To: Mrs. Don-o; GonzoII

Just two stories from my past:

(1) Many years ago, Fr. F. Laisnay of the SSPX (spelling deliberately wrong here) told me that the Bible had to be interpreted though the FOTC (Fathers of the Church).

(2) Just a few years ago, a Lutheran friend wanted to feel OK about infant baptism for his children. He didn’t find examples in the Bible, so he felt much better about it after he read examples in the FOTC.

Anyway, I liked both of your answers.

Thanks.

P.S. Trivia: I’ve heard that the Bible could be completely rewritten from quotes in the FOTC if all the Bible manuscripts were ever to be lost. (Not that that is probable.)
