Nicene and Ante-Nicene Fathers, Ser. II, Vol. XI:
The Works of John Cassian.: Chapter V. That disturbances are caused in us not by the faults of other people, but by our own.

Early Church Fathers  Index     

Chapter V.

That disturbances are caused in us not by the faults of other people, but by our own.

Whence it is clearly proved that the pains of disturbances are not always caused in us by other people’s faults, but rather by our own, as we have stored up in ourselves the causes of offence, and the seeds of faults, which, as soon as a shower of temptation waters our soul, at once burst forth into shoots and fruits.


Next: Chapter VI. That no one comes to grief by a sudden fall, but is destroyed by falling through a long course of carelessness.
