Theodoret of Cyrus: Who are Saints

Greet every saint in Christ Jesus (v.21): not everyone calling themselves a saint is saintly - only the one believing in Christ Jesus and living a life in keeping with his laws.

- Theodoret of Cyrus (around A.D. 393 to around A.D. 457), Commentary on the Letter to the Philippians, Chapter 4, in Theodoret of Cyrus, Commentary on the Letters of St. Paul, Volume 2, p. 80 (2001), Robert C. Hill translator.
