Cyprian of Carthage
- Patience is a thing of God, and that whoever is gentle, and patient, and meek, is an imitator of God the Father.
Cyprian of Carthage, Treatises
- Our prayer is public and common; and when we pray, we pray not for one, but for the whole people, because we the whole people are one. The God of peace and the Teacher of concord, who taught unity, willed that one should thus pray for all, even as He Himself bore us all in one.
Cyprian of Carthage, On the Lord's
