Today’s Money Shot, 2/18/11

The soundest and safest Christian reflection consists in “what you have received, not what you have thought up; a matter not of ingenuity, but of doctrine; not of private acquisition, but of public Tradition; a matter brought to you, not put forth by you, in which you must not be the author but the guardian, not the founder but the sharer, not the leader, but the follower.”

— Vincent of Lerins, quoted in Christopher Hall,¬†Learning Theology with the Church Fathers
