Chrysologus for Lent XXII

And if for a temporal cure the ill follow their doctors' orders by exercising a restraint that is difficult, why for eternal salvation should it be hard to obey Christ with moderate fasting, to exercise self-control over the body, to regulate the mind by restraint, and to make the intellect clear with sobriety?

Sermon 41, section 1.
