CHRISTIAN LIFE




 

A HOLY LIFE

The beginning of all evil is the love of money. Know that you brought nothing into the world and cannot take anything out of it either.  So put on the armour of a holy life and your rule of life must be the commandments of the Lord.

Next, instruct your wives in the faith delivered to them, as well as in love and chastity. They must cling to their husbands with perfect fidelity. 

Love your neighbor with perfect self-control.

Impart to your children an education based on the fear of God.

You, widows, must be discreet in keeping the faith plighted to the Lord.  You must pray unceasingly for the community and refrain absolutely from calumny, gossip, false testimony and love of money.

Be united in the truth. When able to do a work of charity, do not put it off, for this almsgiving is pleasing to the Lord.
