100 – Saint John, last of the Apostles, mouri
107 – Saint Ignatius, Bishop of Antioch and disciple of the Apostles Peter and John, writes letters to various Christian communities
He writes of Christ’s divinity, the Real Presence of Christ in the Eucharist, the virginity of Mary, the three-tiered hierarchy of bishops, presbyters, and deacons, and the primacy of the Church of Rome. We also find the first recorded use of the title “Catholic Church”:
Lèt nan Efèz yo (virginity of Mary):
19:1 "Tifi a nan Mari, nesans bay li, epi tou li lanmò nan Seyè a, te kache pou chèf k'ap dominen lemonn sa a:mistè -three byen fò pwoklame, but wrought in the silence of God.”
Lèt nan Smyrnaeans yo (Real Presence of Christ in the Eucharist; hierarchy; first use of title “Catholic Church”):
7:1 “Take note of those [dir, the Docetists/Gnostics] who hold heterodox opinions on the grace of Jesus Christ which has come to us, ak wè kòman kontrè opinyon yo yo se nan lespri Bondye a. … They abstain from the Eucharist and from prayer, paske yo pa vle rekonèt ekaristik la se kò a nan Jezi Kris la Sovè nou an, Kò ki soufri pou peche nou yo epi ki Papa a, nan bonte li, leve soti vivan ankò. They who deny the gift of God are perishing in their disputes. It would be better for them to have love, so that they might rise again. …
8:1-2 “Flee from schism as the source of mischief. You should all follow the bishop as Jesus Christ did the Father. swiv, twò, reskonsab la menm jan ou ta apòt yo; epi respekte dyak yo menm jan ou ta lalwa Bondye a. Okenn moun pa dwe fè nenpòt ki bagay ki te fè ak Legliz la san apwobasyon evèk la nan. Ou ta dwe konsidere ki ekaristik kòm valid ki se selebre swa pa evèk la oswa pa yon moun li otorize [dir, yon prètr]. Ki kote evèk la se prezan, gen kite kongregasyon an ranmase, menm jan kote Jezikri se, gen Legliz Katolik la. "
Lèt nan Ròm yo (divinity of Christ; primacy of Church of Rome):
Adrès: “Ignatius, yo te rele tou Theophorus, nan legliz la ki te jwenn pitye pyebwa byen wo Papa a ki anwo nan syèl ak nan Jezikri, Sèlman Pitit li; nan legliz la renmen anpil ak fòs ankò apre renmen an nan Jezi Kris la, Bondye nou an, pa pral nan li ki te antete tout bagay ki se; to the Church also which holds the presidency, nan kote a nan peyi a nan Women yo, merite pou yo Bondye, merite pou yo onè, merite benediksyon nan, merite pou yo fè lwanj, merite pou yo siksè, merite pou yo viv apa, ak, paske ou kenbe prezidans la nan renmen, named after Christ and named after the Father. ...
3:1 "Ou te t'ap sèvi pa gen yon sèl, men lòt moun ou te anseye. I desire only that what you have enjoined in your instructions may remain in force.”
144 – Pope Saint Pius I condemns the teachings of Marcion
150 – Fresco in the Catacomb of Saint Priscilla in Rome depicts the Virgin Mary and the Christ Child with a figure believed to be the prophet Isaiah
150 – Hermas, brother of Pope Pius, writes of baptismal rebirth, Maryaj, and Penance (The Shepherd)
150 – Saint Justin the Martyr writes of the Holy Trinity, baptismal rebirth, the Eucharistic Sacrifice, and Mary as the New Eve.
Premye èkskuz (Holy Trinity; baptismal rebirth):
13 “We will prove that we worship Him reasonably; for we have learned that He is the Son of the true God Himself, that He holds a second place, and the Spirit of prophecy a third. For this they accuse us of madness, saying that we attribute to a crucified man a place second to the unchangeable and eternal God, the Creator of all things: but they are ignorant of the mystery which lies therein. …
61 “As many as are persuaded and believe that what we teach and say is true, and undertake to be able to live accordingly, are instructed to pray and to entreat God with fasting, for the remission of their sins that are past, we praying and fasting with them. Then they are brought by us where there is water, and are regenerated in the same manner in which we were ourselves regenerated. Pou, in the name of God, the Father and Lord of the universe, and of our Savior Jesus Christ, and of the Holy Spirit (CF. Matt. 28:19), they then receive the washing with water. Paske, Kris la te di tou ke, Nou si w ap fèt ankò, you cannot enter into the kingdom of heaven’ (Jan 3:3)."
Dialogue with Trypho the Jew (Eucharistic Sacrifice; Mari kòm New Èv la):
41 [Justin:] “‘Also, sirs,’ I said, ‘the offering of fine wheat flour which was prescribed to be offered on behalf of those cleansed of leprosy was a type of the Bread of the Eucharist, the celebration of which our Lord Jesus Christ prescribed in memory of the passion He suffered on behalf of those men who are cleansed in their souls of every evil. … Moreover, as I said before, concerning the sacrifices which you at that time offered, God speaks through Malachias, yonn nan douz disip la [lesser prophets], as follows: “I have no pleasure in you, di Seyè a; and I will not accept your sacrifices from your hands; for from the rising of the sun until its setting, my name has been glorified among the gentiles; and in every place incense is offered in my name, and a clean offering: for great is my name among the gentiles, di Seyè a; but you profane it” (Mal. 1:10-12). It is of the sacrifices offered to Him in every place by us, the gentiles, ki se, of the Bread of the Eucharist and likewise of the cup of the Eucharist, that He speaks at that time; and He says that we glorify His name, while you profane it. …
100 [Justin:] “‘[Jezi] became Man by the Virgin so that the course which was taken by disobedience in the beginning through the agency of the serpent, might be also the very course by which it would be put down. For Eve, a virgin and undefiled, conceived the word of the serpent, and bore disobedience and death. But the Virgin Mary received faith and joy when the angel Gabriel announced to her the glad tidings that the Spirit of the Lord would come upon her and the power of the Most High would overshadow her, for which reason the Holy One being born of her is the Son of God. And she replied: “Be it done unto me according to thy word” (Lik 1:38).’”
