With the sermon builder suite you get all the resources with quotes and illustrations. How do you search those? When I am looking for any quotes by early church fathers on a subject or passage, I can't figure how to add that into my research.

I suspect that the Illustrations section of the sermon guided is the intended answer. However, I use the guide sections Ancient Literature and Catholic Topical Index for this. There are also resources such as Bercot, David W., ed. A Dictionary of Early Christian Beliefs: A Reference Guide to More than 700 Topics Discussed by the Early Church Fathers. Peabody, MA: Hendrickson Publishers, 1998. and Jurgens, W. A., trans. The Faith of the Early Fathers. Vol. 1–3. Collegeville, MN: The Liturgical Press, 1970–1979. that index the materials.

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