Seek no farther

Francis is referring to my quote of John Chrysostom, in his homily on 2 Thessalonians, specifically 2:15, which I reproduce here:

“So then, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions which ye were taught, whether by word, or by Epistle of ours.

Hence it is manifest, that they did not deliver all things by Epistle, but many things also unwritten, and in like manner both the one and the other are worthy of credit. Therefore let us think the tradition of the Church also worthy of credit. It is a tradition, seek no farther. Here he shows that there were many who were shaken."
