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

Early Church Fathers  Index     

Letter CCLXXXIII. 3242

To a widow.

I hope to find a suitable day for the conference, after those which I intend to fix for the hill-country.  I see no opportunity for our meeting (unless the Lord so order it beyond my expectation), other than at a public conference.

You may imagine my position from your own experience.  If in the care of a single household you are beset with such a crowd of anxieties, how many distractions, think you, each day brings to me?

Your dream, I think, reveals more perfectly the necessity of making provision for spiritual contemplation, and cultivating that mental vision by which God is wont to be seen.  Enjoying as you do the consolation of the Holy Scriptures, you stand in need neither of my assistance nor of that of anybody else to help you to comprehend your duty.  You have the all-sufficient counsel and guidance of the Holy Spirit to lead you to what is right.
