You know the (unreliable, fun) quizzes that tell you what superhero (animal, monster ...) you are? Here's one that gives you your identity as a church father: http://www.fathersofthechurch.com/quiz/

 

I'm Melito whom I enjoy reading. We just need to discover more manuscripts. And you?

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."

Shows potential, I guess, but there is room for growth.

And I also came up Melito...

PS - another oldie but decent quiz is Are you a heretic?

You’re St. Jerome!

You’re a passionate Christian, fiercely devoted to Jesus Christ and his Church. You are willing to labor long hours in the Lord’s vineyard, and you have little patience with those who are less willing or able to work as you do. Your passions often carry you into temptation zones of wrath, lust, and pride.

Melito for me, too. Maybe I should read something of his.

I'm Jerome as well. Kinda wished I would have been Athanasius. Maybe I'll go back and tweak it until I get the results I want.

I sense a trend. I am Jerome. (And in some ways that explains a lot.)

Hmm Sarcasm is my love language. Obviously I love you.
