Theodoret of Cyrus: the Faithful are the House of God

He called the faithful house of God. It was necessary for him to add in full assurance of faith: since everything is invisible - the innermost sanctuary of the tabernacle, the sacrifice, and the highpriest, they are discerned only through the eyes of faith.
