Early Church Fathers  Index     

II.

On the Ordination of Presbyters and Deacons.

Ordinations of presbyters and Levites, moreover, solemnly perform on a suitable occasion, and in the presence of many witnesses; and to p. 612 this duty advance tried and learned men, that ye may be greatly gladdened by their fellowship and help.  Place the confidence of your hearts without ceasing on the goodness of God, and declare these and the other divine words to succeeding generations:  “For this is our God for ever and ever, and He will guide us to eternity.” 2721   Given on the 7th November, in the consulship of the most illustrious Saturninus and Gallicanus. 2722
