Apostolic Quotations

A policy is a temporary creed liable to be changed, but while it holds good it has got to be pursued with apostolic zeal.
Mahatma Gandhi

A church without women would be like the apostolic college without Mary. The Madonna is more important than the apostles, and the church herself is feminine, the spouse of Christ and a mother.
Pope Francis

The apostolic writings are of three kinds: historical, didactic, and prophetic.
Philip Schaff

Whoever removes the Cross and its interpretation by the New Testament from the center, in order to replace it, for example, with the social commitment of Jesus to the oppressed as a new center, no longer stands in continuity with the apostolic faith.
Hans Urs von Balthasar

The Church, during the apostolic age, did not consist of isolated, independent congregations, but was one body, of which the separate churches were constituent members, each subject to all the rest, or to an authority which extended over all.
Charles Hodge
