vidēbam enim plēnam ecclēsiam, et alius sīc ībat, alius autem sīc, mihi autem displicēbat quod agēbam in saeculō et onerī mihi erat valdē, nōn iam īnflammantibus cupiditātibus, ut solēbant, spē honōris et pecūniae ad tolerandam illam servitūtem tam gravem.
Indeed I was seeing the full Church, and the one was going thus, but the other in another way, but it was displeasing to me what I was doing in the world and it was for me very much a burden, no longer burning with desires, that they had become accustomed, with the hope of honor and money for having endured that so grave a servitude.
iam enim mē illa nōn dēlectābant prae dulcēdine tuā et decōrē domūs tuae, quam dīlēxī, sed adhūc tenāciter conligābar ex fēminā, nec mē prohibēbat apostolus coniugārī, quamvīs exhortārētur ad melius, maximē volēns omnēs hominēs sīc esse ut
For these things were not delighting me, for in front of your sweetness and the beauty of your house, which I loved, but still now I was tenaciously bounded up by a woman, nor was the apostle restraining me to be joined in marriage although he was encouraging me to be better, especially wishing that all men were thus the same as he.
sed ego īnfirmior ēligēbam molliōrem locum et propter hōc ūnum volvēbar, in cēterīs languidus et tābēscēns cūrīs marcidīs, quod et in aliīs rēbus quās nōlēbam patī congruere cōgēbar vītae coniugālī, cui dēditus obstringēbar.
But weaker, I was choosing the softer place and because of this I was considering alone, in remaining faint and melting away to feeble caves, namely that and in any other things I was refusing to suffer to agree, I was being forced to a life of marriage, surrendered to which I was bound fast.
audīeram ex ōre vēritātis esse spadōnēs quī sē ipsōs abscīdērunt propter rēgnum caelōrum, sed 'quī potest,' inquit, 'capere, capiat.'
I heard from the mouth of truth that there are eunuchs, who had castrated themselves for the sake of the kingdom of the heavens, but it is said 'who is able to take, may take it.'
vānī sunt certē omnēs hominēs quibus nōn inest deī scientia, nec dē hīs quae videntur bona potuērunt invenīre eum quī est.
Surely, empty are all men for who not be in the knowledge of God, nor had been able from these things which seem good to come upon who he is.
at ego iam nōn eram in illā vānitāte.
But how I was not in that emptiness.
trānscenderam eam et contestante ūniversā creātūrā invēneram tē creātōrem nostrum et verbum tuum apud tē deum tēcumque ūnum deum, per quod creāstī omnia.
I had climbed over that and with witnessing by creation all together I had discovered you, the creator of us and your word among you God and with you one God, by which you had created all.
et est aliud genus impiōrum, quī cognōscentēs deum nōn sīcut deum glōrificāvērunt aut grātiās ēgerunt.
And it is the other birth of the unholy, who are learning God, have not glorified God or have gave thanks.
in hōc quoque incideram, et dextera tua suscēpit mē et inde ablātum posuistī ubi convalēscerem, quia dīxistī hominī, 'ecce pietās est sapientia,' et, 'nōlī velle vidērī sapiēns, quoniam dīcentēs sē esse sapientēs stultī factī sunt.'
I too had fallen into this, and had accepted your hand by me and removed from that place you had laid me where I might grow strong, because you had said to men, "Behold wisdom is piety," and "do not wish to seem wise, because calling them to be a wise man is having been made foolish."
et invēneram iam bonam margarītam, et vendītīs omnibus quae habērem ēmenda erat, et dubitābam.
And I had come upon now a good pearl, and once all things had been sold which I possessed, it ought to have been bought and I was doubting.
