Something from Saint Clement, Bishop of Rome

In speaking of the Old Testament faithful: "They were all therefore greatly glorified, not for their own sake, nor for their own works, nor for the righteousness that they themselves wrought; but through His will. And we also, being called by the same will in Christ Jesus, are not justified by ourselves, neither by our own wisdom, or knowledge, or piety, or any works which we did in holiness of heart, but from that faith by which God Almighty has justified all men from the beginning: to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.
