Whoever, 53 1, 23 | goodness of God through our instrumentality, such as 54 1, 26 | command to love God and our neighbour includes a command 55 1, 26 | regard to God above us, and our neighbour beside us. "Thou 56 1, 26 | love of God and the love of our neighbour. Now, if you take 57 1, 26 | first, and the measure of our love for Him is prescribed 58 1, 26 | nothing seems to be said about our love for ourselves; yet 59 1, 26 | once becomes evident that our love for ourselves has not 60 1, 27 | another man better than our own body, because all things 61 1, 27 | enjoyment of God, whereas our body cannot; for the body 62 1, 29 | those who both help us in our need and in turn are helped 63 1, 29 | in Him, and who desires our love, not for any gain to 64 1, 29 | it is that we love even our enemies. For we do not fear 65 1, 30 | angels are to be reckoned our neighbours~ 66 1, 30 | easy do we find it to bear our pilgrimage, and the more 67 1, 30 | who commanded us to love our neighbour made no exception, 68 1, 30 | concerned, is shown both by our Lord Himself in the Gospel, 69 1, 30 | For when the man to whom our Lord delivered those two 70 1, 30 | interrogated in turn. To whom our Lord says, "Go and do thou 71 1, 30 | teaching us that he is our neighbour whom it is our 72 1, 30 | our neighbour whom it is our duty to help in his need, 73 1, 30 | need, or whom it would be our duty to help if he were 74 1, 30 | be in turn to help us is our neighbour. For the name " 75 1, 30 | mercy may be denied when our Lord extends the rule even 76 1, 30 | extends the rule even to our enemies? "Love your enemies, 77 1, 30 | man is to be considered our neighbour, because we are 78 1, 30 | that the command to love our neighbour embraces the holy 79 1, 30 | been performed by them on our behalf, as may easily be 80 1, 30 | ground even God Himself, our Lord, desired to be called 81 1, 30 | Lord, desired to be called our neighbour. For our Lord 82 1, 30 | called our neighbour. For our Lord Jesus Christ points 83 1, 30 | and far removed above, our nature, the command to love 84 1, 30 | distinct from that to love our neighbour. For He shows 85 1, 32 | neither does He use after our fashion of using. For when 86 1, 32 | as we are evil, so far is our existence less complete. 87 1, 32 | so; but somehow or other our own advantage follows by 88 1, 32 | without reward. Now this is our highest reward, that we 89 1, 33 | For if we find our happiness complete in one 90 1, 33 | upon the road, and place our hope of happiness in man 91 1, 33 | set themselves to recruit our energies with the provision 92 1, 33 | thus refreshed to go on our way towards Him, in the 93 1, 33 | enjoyment of whom we find our common happiness. For even 94 1, 34 | on the way, when not even our Lord Himself, so far as 95 1, 34 | He has condescended to be our way, is willing to detain 96 1, 34 | put on and worn by Him for our salvation, to pass over 97 1, 34 | unto Himself, who has freed our nature from the bondage 98 1, 35 | Scripture is the love of God and our neighbour~ 99 1, 35 | temporal dispensation for our salvation, therefore, was 100 1, 36 | twofold love of God and our neighbour, does not yet 101 1, 40 | faith unfeigned." For if our faith is free from all hypocrisy, 102 1, 40 | loving what is unworthy of our love, and by living uprightly 103 1, 40 | to indulge the hope that our hope shall not be in vain. 104 2, arg | turned to account in removing our ignorance of signs, whether 105 2, 3 | wish by this sign to impart our desire. And some convey 106 2, 3 | the thoughts of the mind. Our Lord, it is true, gave a 107 2, 6 | admirable wisdom and care for our welfare, so arranged the 108 2, 6 | plainer passages to satisfy our hunger, and by the more 109 2, 6 | more obscure to stimulate our appetite. For almost nothing 110 2, 7 | excite in us the thought of our mortality and of the death 111 2, 7 | the motions of pride as if our flesh were nailed to the 112 2, 7 | it is necessary to have our hearts subdued by piety, 113 2, 7 | understood it strikes at some of our sins, or, when not understood, 114 2, 7 | anything we could devise by our own wisdom. ~ 115 2, 7 | loved for His own sake, and our neighbour for God's sake; 116 2, 7 | in such a way that all our love for our neighbour, 117 2, 7 | way that all our love for our neighbour, like all our 118 2, 7 | our neighbour, like all our love for ourselves, should 119 2, 7 | this world, even though our conversation be in heaven. 120 2, 7 | we reach wisdom itself, our way is by the steps now 121 2, 11 | of a thought we have in our mind. And the two given 122 2, 12 | command is not to despise our kinsmen, because when one 123 2, 12 | not pass away, but abides, our understanding being purified 124 2, 13 | from that which those of our predecessors who spoke with 125 2, 13 | even would often set up our neck, if it were not held 126 2, 13 | held down by the yoke of our Master. For how does it 127 2, 13 | For how does it prevent our understanding it to have 128 2, 14 | there are words or idioms in our own tongue that we are unacquainted 129 2, 14 | can easily by the help of our memory turn our attention 130 2, 14 | help of our memory turn our attention to the matter 131 2, 16 | where the man whose eyes our Lord had anointed with clay 132 2, 16 | throws upon the meaning of our Lord's command, that we 133 2, 16 | say, that for the sake of our head, which is Christ, we 134 2, 16 | we should willingly offer our body to the persecutors, 135 2, 16 | to save the body we deny our God! Or again, the statement 136 2, 16 | according to the saying of our Lord, "Enter ye in at the 137 2, 16 | that Moses and Elijah, and our Lord Himself, all fasted 138 2, 16 | personified in Elijah, and by our Lord Himself, who, as if 139 2, 16 | the number fifty, which in our religion has no ordinary 140 2, 16 | after the resurrection of our Lord, when the nets were 141 2, 16 | referred to the structure of our Lord's body, in relation 142 2, 16 | heretics to confess that our Lord put on, not a false, 143 2, 21 | the stars at the time of our birth, and may sometimes 144 2, 21 | attempt thence to predict our actions, or the consequences 145 2, 21 | or the consequences of our actions, grievously err, 146 2, 21 | times more recent and nearer our own, the Romans made an 147 2, 23 | pernicious error. And to our advantage, the Word of God 148 2, 23 | promoting love towards God and our neighbour, but they waste 149 2, 23 | and bar the door against our return. As, then, from the 150 2, 26 | luxury, if they only occupy our minds so far as not to stand 151 2, 28 | the consulship in which our Lord was born, and that 152 2, 28 | this cannot be referred to our Lord's age, it may be referred 153 2, 28 | formation of the body which, for our sakes, the only begotten 154 2, 28 | Greeks, what a great question our own Ambrose has set at rest! 155 2, 28 | calumniously to assert that our Lord Jesus Christ learnt 156 2, 28 | long before the coming of our Lord! did not the illustrious 157 2, 28 | Jeremiah's means initiated into our literature, so as to be 158 2, 28 | as concerning the flesh our Lord came. And thus, when 159 2, 28 | that was good and true from our literature, than that the 160 2, 29 | celebrating the anniversary of our Lord's passion, is known 161 2, 29 | information from them as to our own acts and fates, in the 162 2, 31 | risen," and again, "Then is our preaching vain, and your 163 2, 40 | we must appropriate to our uses~ 164 2, 40 | true and in harmony with our faith, we are not only not 165 2, 40 | it, but to claim it for our own use from those who have 166 2, 40 | good and faithful men among our brethren done? Do we not 167 2, 41 | cannot be safe. Now Christ is our Passover sacrificed for 168 2, 41 | comprehend the cross of our Lord, the breadth of which 169 3, 2 | there is nothing wrong in our punctuation or pronunciation. 170 3, 3 | pronounce them. For example, if our faith that God will not 171 3, 4 | which I have in Christ Jesus our Lord, I die daily." For 172 3, 6 | such signs could not endure our Lord's neglect of them when 173 3, 9 | after that the proof of our liberty has shone forth 174 3, 9 | clearly in the resurrection of our Lord, we are not oppressed 175 3, 9 | which we now understand, but our Lord Himself, and apostolic 176 3, 12 | for example, that when our Lord's feet were anointed 177 3, 12 | fish after the manner of our Lord, to eating lentils 178 3, 12 | of the things we use, but our reason for using them, and 179 3, 12 | reason for using them, and our manner of seeking them, 180 3, 12 | end of love towards God or our neighbour, or both. For 181 3, 12 | that lust do not mix with our use of them; for lust not 182 3, 13 | either directly, as is our duty, or figuratively, as 183 3, 15 | to carefully turn over in our minds and meditate upon 184 3, 16 | share in the sufferings of our Lord, and that we should 185 3, 16 | distress. In the same way, when our Lord says, "He who loveth 186 3, 17 | Accordingly, another of our rules for understanding 187 3, 18 | We must also be on our guard against supposing 188 3, 18 | still alive at the advent of our Lord, when the time not 189 3, 18 | Blessed art Thou, O God of our fathers, and blessed is 190 3, 20 | contrary, that the apostles of our faith were neither puffed 191 3, 22 | of the good men who since our Lord's advent are the custodians 192 3, 24 | especially when we bring to our aid experience strengthened 193 3, 25 | in all other places. For our Lord used leaven both in 194 3, 29 | know that the authors of our Scriptures use all those 195 3, 33 | faith itself was so far our own that it did not come 196 3, 33 | heresy, which has arisen in our time, and has given us much 197 3, 33 | of God which is through our Lord Jesus Christ and which ( 198 3, 34 | which this is a part; or, as our author terms it, to the 199 3, 34 | promised to their fathers and our fathers; and that there 200 3, 34 | comparison with the Old, "Ye are our epistle ... written not 201 3, 34 | a wholesome exercise for our spirit. And therefore we 202 3, 34 | saints: "Not according to our works, but according to 203 3, 34 | manifest by the appearing of our Saviour." He speaks of the 204 3, 35 | three of His disciples, our Lord was transfigured on 205 3, 35 | In the next place, our author calls those numbers 206 3, 36 | obscure form; as, for example, our Lord says in the gospel: " 207 3, 36 | Lot's wife." Is it when our Lord shall have been revealed 208 3, 37 | the means of communicating our thoughts to others. ~ 209 4, 3 | outside the canon, which to our great advantage is fixed 210 4, 6 | that was designed to profit our understandings, not only 211 4, 6 | language as superior to that of our authors (not because of 212 4, 6 | goodness has provided to mould our characters, and to guide 213 4, 7 | of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost 214 4, 7 | of God is shed abroad in our hearts;" the third, "by 215 4, 7 | The God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which 216 4, 7 | ill-taught men who think our authors contemptible; not 217 4, 7 | Apostle Paul because he is our great orator. For when he 218 4, 7 | learned and eloquent, despise our prophets as untaught and 219 4, 8 | means to suppose that it is our duty to imitate them in 220 4, 9 | to be insisted upon, that our hearer or companion should 221 4, 10 | unlearned employ it. For if our translators did not shrink 222 4, 10 | insisted on as necessary to our being understood, not only 223 4, 14 | that not only is it not our duty to do, but it is our 224 4, 14 | our duty to do, but it is our duty to shun and abhor, 225 4, 15 | And so our Christian orator, while 226 4, 15 | in whose hand both we and our speeches are? Accordingly, 227 4, 15 | reflect upon that saying of our Lord's, as better suited 228 4, 16 | we need not pray, since our Lord says, "Your Father 229 4, 16 | Wherefore though holy men be our helpers, or even holy angels 230 4, 18 | small affairs of money, as our Lord says: "He that is faithful 231 4, 18 | common thing, the saying of our Lord that he who gives a 232 4, 19 | And yet, while our teacher ought to speak of 233 4, 20 | ministry, let us wait on our ministering; or he that 234 4, 20 | more harmonious ending; but our translator, with more strictness, 235 4, 20 | indeed, I must confess that our authors are very defective 236 4, 20 | beauty, beautiful even in our language, but especially 237 4, 20 | authoritative utterances. Now our prophets were so far from 238 4, 20 | burning: "O ye Corinthians, our mouth is opened unto you, 239 4, 20 | mouth is opened unto you, our heart is enlarged," and 240 4, 20 | which is in Christ Jesus our Lord." ~ 241 4, 21 | and to do nothing that our Lord has not first done 242 4, 21 | sacrament is foreshadowed, and our Lord's sufferings typically 243 4, 21 | wine, and thus showed forth our Lord's passion. In the same 244 4, 21 | it, this was a sign that our Lord's flesh, filled with 245 4, 21 | virginity from Cyprian: "Now our discourse addresses itself 246 4, 21 | unleavened. For even Christ our Passover is sacrificed for 247 4, 22 | therefore we must be on our guard, lest, in striving 248 4, 27 | sound doctrine. Wherefore our Lord Himself, before saying 249 4, 30 | whose hand are both we and our words." ~
