I'm using a plan that has me reading through 10 of the Church Fathers during Lent this year. Today was St. Ignatius of Antioch: Letter to the Philadelphians.

After yesterday's reading concentrating so much on St. Ignatius' preparations for martyrdom, today's readings that focused on unity within the church were welcome. I like how he continues to harp on the need for unity, and for clearly defined organization and governance.

I so enjoyed reading the teachings from the early Church so much, when one realizes how the Truth is unchanging.

Speaking of which, have you read any of Augustine?

Yeah, I'm really enjoying reading this. I've ready a (very) little Augustine in the past, but not enough to remember much.

Indeed. The content of these epistles is nearly identical to that of the New Testament Epistles.
