The Preacher’s Rest

Words put in the mouth of Peter by the author of The Clementine Homilies:

“I wish you to know, that he who does anything with pleasure, finds rest in the very toils themselves; but he who does not do what he wishes, is rendered exceedingly weary by the very rest he takes.  Wherefore you confer on me a great rest when you make me discourse on topics which please me.”

ANF 8, The Clementina, Homily XIX.xxv, pg. 338-339.
