The Church Fathers Becoming More Important-Interview with director of the Augustinian Patristic Institute at Rome’s Pontifical Lateran University

This is quite an interesting interview at The Way of The Fathers. Go see Turn, Turn, Turn . I think this part is very true.
Q: If you had to persuade youth to study the Fathers, what argument would you use?Father Dodaro: I would speak about St. Augustine. But apart from that example, I would say: Take the 10 greatest and most difficult problems in today’s Church, choose whichever ones you want, and then try to compare them to those the Church Fathers develop. In the classic patristics, you will find the roots and responses to whatever controversy the Church must confront today. This is the importance of the Church Fathers
