I could not find Migne listed in his bibliography, to decipher the "P. L."
"P.L." stands for Patrologia Latina, the overall name of the series (the other big one is Patrologia Graeca)
All of the volumes are online, usually in multiple copies. Here are some links to all of the PL volumes -

Here is a list for PG (the main value (for me) of Migne's Greek editions is that they are accompanied by Latin translations in parallel columns, making references easy to find):

Nice text reference, btw. It's a good gloss on the card: Temperance "puts out the fire of lustful pleasure" ("libidinosse" should be "libidinosae").
