Example text

For so long as affection of soul remains completely occupied with these things, it seems certain that the ones so occupied are involved in a hog wallow of sins. Thus, they do injury to God and to the whole Church: to God indeed because they ought (according to the law of Christ) to carry out what they fail to do for him; and to the remaining part of the Church, according to the example of Christ's poverty and the law which he himself gave. For this reason, while all their merit depends upon the gratitude or grace of the Saviour, it seems true that such clerks are stubbornly ungrateful toward Christ, very much indisposed toward being deserving of him and of the people.

Where, then, is there a more straitened condition of miserable poverty? The Luciferine sign of pride is that the prelate is proud of the fatness of his benefice, which nevertheless he is able to spend each year. . To repress this pride one should recognize carefully that God expressly grants to each his part. Since the prelate is the bailiff of such a great Lord, he ought more especially to ponder that it behooves him to give a faithful account of the part due to God, how he has faithfully managed that part.

Indeed, [judging] from what commonly happens, they ought to flee from him as unworthy. . A certain devoted people, mindful of the salvation of the soul, choose a skilled and suitable priest, who will not be burdensome to them on account of baseless novelties. 79 10 We need now to scrutinize the means by which the one elected to such a prelacy ought to stand within the limits of reason.
