Patristic Wisdom

Never separate yourself from the Church. For nothing is stronger than the Church. Your hope is in the Church alone; your salvtion is inside the Church only, your refuge is the Church. She is higher than the heavens, and wider than the whole earth. She never grows old, but is always full of vigor and vitality. Holy Scripture (which would not even exist were it not for the Church), when pointing to Her strength and stability caller her an unshakeable mountain.--St. John Chrysostom, On Eutoprios, Homily 2.6
