Take A Lesson From The Fathers

"They [the Fathers of the Church] wrote so richly of the spiritual life because they first lived what they studied and pondered. They wrote of what they knew, not merely what they concluded. Exegesis is, therefore, to happen within ecclesial life, for the New Testament itself emerged wholly from the womb of the first-century Church and was judged from the outset as expressing authentically her mind and spirit and worship."

-Thomas Dubay in Faith and Certitude
