Nicene and Ante-Nicene Fathers, Ser. II, Vol. XI:
The Works of John Cassian.: Chapter XII. That no toil is worthy to be compared with the promised bliss.

Early Church Fathers  Index     

Chapter XII.

That no toil is worthy to be compared with the promised bliss.

For all the long years of this present life disappear when you have regard to the eternity of the future glory: and all our sorrows vanish away in the contemplation of that vast bliss, and like smoke melt away, and come to nothing, and like ashes are no more seen.


Next: Chapter XIII. The teaching of the elders on the method of acquiring purity.
