"Let us now devote our attention to the Apostolic Fathers; that is, to the first and second generations in the Church subsequent to the Apostles. And thus, we can see where the Church's journey begins in history." -- Pope Benedict XVI

The Fathers of the Church exhorted believers in the face of persecution while fighting heresies and misunderstandings. They were theologians and philosophers, orators and pastors, leaders and problem solvers, martyrs and heroes.

In Volume II of this popular series of papal talks on the Fathers of the Church, Pope Benedict focuses on St. Leo the Great through St. Bernard. He carefully explains their rich history and the vital role each one played not only in preserving the Church at the time, but also in anchoring the Church of today as well as the future.
