Calvin on Individual Oversight of the Flock

“The office of a true and faithful minister is not only publicly to teach the people over whom he is ordained to pastor, but, so far as may be, to admonish, exhort, rebuke, and console each one in particular.”
– From “Visitation of the Sick”, contained in John Calvin: Tracts and Letters, vol. 2, ed. by Henry Beveridge.
