עמוד 65 - I say to thee that thou art Peter ; and upon this rock I will build my Church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. And I will give to thee the keys of the kingdom of Heaven. And whatsoever thou shalt bind upon earth, it shall be bound also in heaven...
עמוד 49 - O! the depths of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out!

But for as much as he saw many by reason of such learning to fall to dissolute and lewd life, he drew back his foot, which he had as it were now set forth into the world, lest, entering too far in acquaintance therewith, he likewise might have fallen into that dangerous and godless gulf.

עמוד 33 - Bennet,' and yet found that he gave him no answer, straightway he would turn his tune, and say : ' Cursed Bennet, and not blessed : what hast thou to do with me ? and why dost thou thus persecute me ?'

As he was travelling to this place, a certain monk, called Romanus, met him, and demanded whither he went ; and, understanding his purpose, he both kept it close, furthered him what he might, vested him with the habit of holy conversation, and, as he could, did minister and serve him. The man of God, Bennet, coming to this...
עמוד 11 - I understand of all this testimony alleged : but yet I beseech you to tell me the meaning thereof more fully. GREGORY. — It is plain, Peter, that in youth the temptation of the flesh is hot : but after fifty years the heat of the body waxeth cold, and the souls of faithful people become holy vessels. Wherefore necessary it is that God's elect servants...
עמוד 82 - For his sister called Scholastica, dedicated from her infancy to our Lord, used once a year to come and visit her brother. To whom the man of God went not far from the gate, to a place that did belong to the Abbey, there to give her entertainment. And she coming thither on a time according to her custom, her venerable brother with his monks went to meet her, where they spent the whole day in the praises of God and spiritual talk: and when it was almost night they supped together, and as they were...
