secrated nowhere but in the Church ; Saint Paul says, ' Despise ye the Church of God ? Have ye not houses to eat in ?'2 3 So also Saint Paul says to Titus,54 ' That thou mayst know how thou oughtest to behave thyself in the house of God, which is the Church of the riving God, the pillar and ground of the truth.' And it is the duty of all the faithful to receive their instruction in the Church. "Wherefore it is that Saint Paul says, ' Let your women keep silence in the churches, for it is not permitted unto them to speak.'" For this, which man eats, is the bread of angels, which has descended from heaven ; and as the manna which had been rained from heaven, and the rod of Aaron which had blossomed, were kept in the ark, as also the tables which had been written by the finger of God, so is the body of our Lord not consecrated, or kept except in the Church, as being the most pleasing sanctuary of the Lord. And in the same manner as the ark was carried on their shoulders by the Lévites only, and was under their care, and as the Lévites only ministered in the tabernacle of the Lord, BO, to the priests alone, and to their servants, has been delivered and entrusted the care of the Church. Of this ark the Lord speaks in the Revelation ; ' the heaven was opened, and there was seen in His temple the ark of His testament.'26 Moreover, to the priests alone has been given the power of binding and loosing; wherefore the Lord says unto Peter, '"Whatever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven ; and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth, shall be loosed in heaven.'27 Saint Paul says also to Timothy,28 'For this cause left I thee in Crete, that thou shouldst set in order the things that are wanting, and ordain elders in every city.' Also, with regard to orders, the Apostle says, ' Let the elders that rule well be accounted worthy of double honor.'29 Likewise : ' Against an elder receive not an accusation, but before two or three witnesses.' 3 0 Again : ' Deacons must be grave ;' 3 1 and, ' To all at Philippi, with the bishops and deacons, grace be unto you, and peace.'3 5 Behold then to whom it is that the Lord commits the words of warning and of correction ! Also, Saint Paul says, ' Beprove, rebuke, exhort with all long-suffering 23 24 1 Cor. xi. 22. He commits an error : it is from 1 Timothv, iii. 15. » ICor. xiv. 34, 35. 5 6 Rev. xi. 19. w St. Matt. xvi. 19. -» This is an error: the words (with a slight variation) are in Titus i 5. 2S 30 1 Tim. v. 17. 1 Tim. v. 19. si χ xi, ju. 32 p^n j j. m
