[Note: What distinguishes this book from the likewise erudite works of Dr. Otto Bardenhewer and Dr. Joseph Tixeront is the fact that its historical overview of the Fathers is preceded by a general introduction to the field of patrology, as well as a detailed “Introductory and Propadeutical Part” discussing the methodology of patristics: the authority of the Fathers and the way their works are examined, used, and understood.]
“[The Gospel’s] saving truth and rules of conduct… are contained in the written books and in the unwritten traditions… received by the Apostles… dictated either orally by Christ or by the Holy Ghost, and preserved in the Catholic Church in unbroken succession… [N]o one… shall, in matters of faith and morals pertaining to the edification of Christian doctrine, distorting the Holy Scriptures in accordance with his own conceptions, presume to interpret them… contrary to the unanimous teaching of the Fathers.” (Council of Trent, Session IV)
“Christ the Lord in whom the full revelation of the supreme God is brought to completion (…), commissioned the Apostles to preach to all men… [T]he Apostles left bishops as their successors, “handing over” to them “the authority to teach in their own place.”… And so the apostolic preaching… expressed in a special way in the inspired books, was to be preserved by an unending succession of preachers until the end of time… The words of the holy fathers witness to the presence of this living tradition…” (Second Vatican Council, Constitution on Divine Revelation)
As far as we know, these addresses have no collective label provided by the Holy See, though Catechesis of the Popes provides the title “Origins of the Church”. The label “Communion with Christ through Apostolic Tradition and Succession” is our own.
“God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth: Whereunto he called you by our gospel, to the obtaining of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions which ye have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle.” (II Thessalonians ii, 13-15 KJV)
