Nicene and Post-Nicene Fathers, Vol. III:
Moral Treatises of St. Augustin: Section 28

Early Church Fathers  Index     

28. Therefore let the rest of the faithful, who have lost virginity, follow the Lamb, not whithersoever He shall have gone, but so far as ever they shall have been able. But they are able every where, save when He walks in the grace of virginity. “Blessed are the poor in spirit;” 2081 imitate Him, Who, whereas “He was rich, was made poor for your sakes.” 2082 “Blessed are the meek;” imitate Him, Who said, “Learn of Me, for I am meek and lowly p. 427 of heart.” 2083 “Blessed are they that mourn;” imitate Him, Who “wept over” Jerusalem. 2084 “Blessed are they, who hunger and thirst after righteousness;” imitate Him, Who said, “My meat is to do the will of Him Who sent Me.” 2085 “Blessed are the merciful;” imitate Him, Who came to the help of him who was wounded by robbers, and who lay in the way half-dead and despaired of. 2086 “Blessed are the pure in heart;” imitate Him, “Who did no sin, neither was guile found in His mouth.” 2087 “Blessed are the peace-makers;” imitate Him, Who said on behalf of His persecutors, “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.” 2088 “Blessed are they, who suffer persecution for righteousness sake;” imitate Him, Who “suffered for you, leaving you an example, that ye follow His steps.” 2089 These things, whoso imitate, in these they follow the Lamb. But surely even married persons may go in those steps, although not setting their foot perfectly in the same print, 2090 yet walking in the same paths.
