The First Council of Constantinople
We continue with the General or Ecumenical Councils of the Church with the second in this issue. Fifty-six years after Nicaea, the Roman Emperor of the East Theodosius I convened the second General Council. Because of friction between the emperor, who was headquartered in Constantinople and Pope Saint Damasus I, located in Rome, neither the Holy Father or his papal legates attended. Already the split between East and West was manifesting itself. 186 bishops did attend. Most notable were Saint Gregory Nazianzen and Saint Cyril of Jerusalem, two noted Doctors of the Church who, with the Council Fathers, reaffirmed the First Council of Nicaea, affirmed the divinity of the Third Person of the Trinity by defining the Consubstantiality of the Holy Spirit with the Father and the Son, thereby condeming the heresy of Macedonius.

Editor Michael Cain answers those who think The DAILY CATHOLIC's fidelity has waned by asking who really is faithful to Catholic teaching as decreed through 20 Ecumenical Councils and handed down in the great Deposit of Faith.

Therein you'll have your answer as to who is truly faithful to Holy Mother Church, the Primacy of Peter and the perennial Magisterium as we point out in If you serve mammon, you are not serving God!
