Nicene and Ante-Nicene Fathers, Ser. II, Vol. VII:
Select Letters of Saint Gregory Nazianzen.: Letter XCI

Early Church Fathers  Index     

Ep. XCI.

(A letter of no great importance, except as shewing the friendly feelings which Gregory continued to maintain towards his successor.)

Affairs with us go on as usual:  we are quiet without strifes and disputes, valuing as we do the reward (which has no risk attaching to it) of silence, beyond everything.  And we have derived some profit from this rest, having by God’s mercy fairly recovered from our illness.  Do p. 470 you ride on and reign, as holy David says, 4750 and may God, Who has honoured you with Priesthood, accompany you throughout, and set it for you above all slander.  And that we may give each other a proof of our courage, and may not suffer any human calamity as we stand before God, I send this message to you, and do you promptly assent to it.  There are many reasons which make me very anxious about our very dear Pancratius.  Be good enough to receive him kindly, and to commend him to the best of your friends, that he may attain his object.  His object is through some kind of military service to obtain relief from public office, though there is no single kind of life that is unexposed to the slanders of worthless men, as you very well know.



Ps. xlv. 4.
