Nicene and Ante-Nicene Fathers, Ser. II, Vol. XI:
The Works of John Cassian.: Chapter VI. How difficult the evil of covetousness is to drive away when once it has been admitted.

Early Church Fathers  Index     

Chapter VI.

How difficult the evil of covetousness is to drive away when once it has been admitted.

Wherefore let not this evil seem of no account or unimportant to anybody: for as it can easily be avoided, so if it has once got hold of any one, it scarcely suffers him to get at the remedies for curing it. For it is a p. 250 regular nest of sins, and a “root of all kinds of evil,” and becomes a hopeless incitement to wickedness, as the Apostle says, “Covetousness,” i.e. the love of money, “is a root of all kinds of evil.” 879



1 Tim. vi. 10.

Next: Chapter VII. Of the source from which covetousness springs, and of the evils of which it is itself the mother.
