Ante-Nicene Fathers, Vol VIII:
Pseudo-Clementine Literature.: Chapter XXIII

Early Church Fathers  Index     

Chapter XXIII.—A Miracle.

But he said:  “Cease:  what mean you, O Clement, my son?  Do not push away your mother.”  But I, as soon as I heard these words, immediately bathed in tears, fell upon my mother, who had fallen down, and began to kiss her.  For as soon as I heard, by degrees I recalled her countenance to my memory; and the longer I gazed, the more familiar it grew to me.  Mean time a great multitude assembled, hearing that the woman who used to sit and beg was recognised by her son, who was a good man. 794   And when we wished to sail hastily away from the island, my mother said to me:  “My darling son, it is right that I should bid farewell to the woman who took me in; for she is poor, and paralytic, and bedridden.”  When Peter and all who were present heard this, they admired the goodness and prudence of the woman; and immediately Peter ordered some to go and to bring the woman in her bed as she lay.  And when she had been brought, and placed in the midst of the crowd, Peter said, in the presence of all:  “If I am a preacher of truth, for confirming the faith of all those who stand by, that they may know and believe that there is one God, who made heaven and earth, in the name of Jesus Christ, His Son, let this woman rise.”  And as soon as he had said this, she arose whole, and fell down at Peter’s feet; and greeting her friend and acquaintance with kisses asked of her was the meaning of it all.  But she shortly related to her the whole proceeding of the Recognition795 so that the crowds standing around wondered.
