"the moment of the fathers is the moment of the constitutive reception of biblical revelation, which the later Church only excogitates and applies."

     Aidan Nichols, The chalice of God:  a systematic theology in outline (Collegeville, MN:  Liturgical Press, 2012), 34, citing J. Ratzinger, "Importance of the Fathers for the structure of the faith," Principles of Catholic theology:  building stones for a fundamental theology (San Francisco:  Ignatius Press, 1987), 133-52.
