(poy Wege Wood)

"I persuade myself that the ridiculing of the errors and extravagances of
mankind is not acting contrary to the general conduct of the saints, and that the
censures for so doing are no less directed against the great doctors of the Church
-as ST. JEROME, in his letters and writings against Jovinian and Vigilantius–
TERTULLIAN in his Apologetic against the follies of idolatry-St. AUGUSTINE against
the monks of Africa, whom he calls the Hairy-St. IRENÆUS against the Gnos-
tics—St. BERNARD and the other Fathers of the Church, who, having been the
imitators of the Apostles, ought to be imitated by Christians in all succeeding
ages; since, whatever may be said, they alone constitute the true models of the
present times."

PASCAL, Prov. Lett., XI.
