Nicene and Ante-Nicene Fathers, Ser. II, Vol. XI:
The Works of John Cassian.: Chapter XIII. Of the different ways in which all these faults assault us.

Early Church Fathers  Index     

Chapter XIII.

Of the different ways in which all these faults assault us.

Although then these eight faults trouble all sorts of men, yet they do not attack them all in the same way. For in one man the spirit of fornication holds the chief place: wrath rides rough shod over another: over another vainglory claims dominion: in an other pride holds the field: and though it is clear that we are all attacked by all of them, yet the difficulties come to each of us in very different ways and manners.


Next: Chapter XIV. Of the struggle into which we must enter against our faults, when they attack us.
