Early Church Fathers  Index

The Pastor

Book Third.—Similitudes.


Similitude First. As in This World We Have No Abiding City, We Ought to Seek One to Come.
Similitude Second. As the Vine is Supported by the Elm, So is the Rich Man Helped by the Prayer of the Poor.
Similitude Third. As in Winter Green Trees Cannot Be Distinguished from Withered, So in This World Neither Can the Just from the Unjust.
Similitude Fourth. As in Summer Living Trees are Distinguished from Withered by Fruit and Living Leaves, So in the World to Come the Just Differ from the Unjust in Happiness.
Similitude Fifth. Of True Fasting and Its Reward: Also of Purity of Body.
Similitude Sixth. Of the Two Classes of Voluptuous Men, and of Their Death, Falling Away, and the Duration of Their Punishment.
Similitude Seventh. They Who Repent Must Bring Forth Fruits Worthy of Repentance.
Similitude Eighth. The Sins of the Elect and of the Penitent are of Many Kinds, But All Will Be Rewarded According to the Measure of Their Repentance and Good Works.
Similitude Ninth. The Great Mysteries in the Building of the Militant and Triumphant Church.
Similitude Tenth. Concerning Repentance and Alms-Giving.

Next: Similitude First. As in This World We Have No Abiding City, We Ought to Seek One to Come.
