Hoosier Musings on the Road to Emmaus

My place in the patriarchy?

You’re Origen!

You do nothing by half-measures. If you’re going to read the Bible, you want to read it in the original languages. If you’re going to teach, you’re going to reach as many souls as possible, through a proliferation of lectures and books. If you’re a guy and you’re going to fight for purity … well, you’d better hide the kitchen shears.

Find out which Church Father you are at The Way of the Fathers!

My dad calls me "Father Daughter," but I don't think this is what he means.

(Props to the Crimson Rambler for this one)

Hey, I'm Origen too!

Good thing we're not in the same diocese, eh?

I'm St Melito of Sardis:

You have a great love of history and liturgy. You’re attached to the traditions of the ancients, yet you recognize that the old world — great as it was — is passing away. You are loyal to the customs of your family...


...though you do not hesitate to call family members to account for their sins.

Oh, dear.

I came out Tertullian...

You possess many gifts, but patience isn’t one of them. You’re tough on yourself — and on others. You’re independent, too, and you don’t like to be told what to do. You wish the Church would be a little tighter in discipline. As for the pagans, you’ve pretty much written them off. Sometimes you think the Church would be a better place if you were in charge.

Could this possibly be correct?!?

Hate to bring this up, but didn't Origen castrate himself?

Yes-- yes, he did.

However, even if I were equipped to follow said example, I'm not quite that... intense.
