Ante-Nicene Fathers, Vol I:
CLEMENT OF ROME: Chapter LIV.—He who is full of love...

Early Church Fathers  Index     

Chapter LIV.—He who is full of love will incur every loss, that peace may be restored to the Church.

Who then among you is noble-minded? who compassionate? who full of love? Let him declare, “If on my account sedition and disagreement and schisms have arisen, I will depart, I will go away whithersoever ye desire, and I will do whatever the majority 241 commands; only let the flock of Christ live on terms of peace with the presbyters set over it.” He that acts thus shall procure to himself great glory in the Lord; and every place will welcome 242 him. For “the earth is the Lord’s, and the fulness thereof.” 243 These things they who live a godly life, that is never to be repented of, both have done and always will do.



Literally, “the multitude.” [Clement here puts words into the mouth of the Corinthian presbyters. It has been strangely quoted to strengthen a conjecture that he had humbly preferred Linus and Cletus when first called to preside.]


Or, “receive.”


Ps. xxiv. 1; 1 Cor. 10:26, 28.

Next: Chapter LV.—Examples of such love.
