Title: By St. Augustine
Post by: Bailey2 on April 08, 2011, 08:45:05 AM
The turbulent have to be corrected, the faint-hearted cheered up, the weak supported; the Gospel's opponents need to be refuted, its insidious enemies guarded against; the unlearned need to be taught, the indolent stirred up, the argumentative checked; the proud must be put in their place, the desperate set on their feet, those engaged in quarrels reconciled; the needy have to be helped, the oppressed to be liberated, the good to be encouraged, the bad to be tolerated; all must be loved.  St. Augustine

Great question.  I was trying to return to the thread on whether evil is from God and stumbled into this one, but after at least a half hour on this one I can't find the source of the Dr of Grace designation, nor whether it applies just to St Augustine, or all four Great Latin Fathers/Doctors, or perhaps to the Four Greeks as well.  I suspect you know of Pope Boniface VIII's letter of 1298, and I'm tempted to presume it isn't what you're inquiring about.  I'm delighted to see discussion here and hope to return much more frequently.

It's good to hear from you eschator! :D

We've had some fine quotes to appreciate from St. Augustine lately.

Eschator, Thank you for the pleasant compliment! Do you like to learn about Popes from previous centuries?

Yes, I enjoy most history, especially the Church and its Popes.  I was very disappointed when Shin stopped posting about Pope Pius V, but felt his thread didn't encourage comments.

Eschator, In Catholic General Discussion I have begun two threads: Holy Roman Empire and Church Affairs.
