Nicene and Ante-Nicene Fathers, Ser. II, Vol. XI:
The Works of John Cassian.: Chapter XXVIII. That the victory over covetousness can only be gained by stripping one's self bare of everything.

Early Church Fathers  Index     

Chapter XXVIII.

That the victory over covetousness can only be gained by stripping one’s self bare of everything.

This then is the perfect victory over covetousness: not to allow a gleam from the very smallest scrap of it to remain in our heart, as we know that we shall have no further power of quenching it, if we cherish even the tiniest bit of a spark of it in us.


Next: Chapter XXIX. How a monk can retain his poverty.
