Nicene and Ante-Nicene Fathers, Ser. II, Vol. VIII:
The Letters.: To a soldier.

Early Church Fathers  Index     

Letter CVI. 2367

To a soldier.

I have many reasons for thanking God for mercies vouchsafed to me in my journey, but I count no blessing greater than the knowledge of your excellency, which has been permitted me by our good Lord’s mercy.  I have learnt to know one who proves that even in a soldier’s life it is possible to preserve the perfection of love to God, 2368 and that we must mark a Christian not by the style of his dress, but by the disposition of his soul.  It was a great delight to me to meet you; and now, whenever I remember you, I feel very glad.  Play the man; be strong; strive to nourish and multiply love to God, that there may be given you by Him yet greater boons of blessing.  I need no further proof that you remember me; I have evidence in what you have done.
