Answers of the Great Masters of the Spiritual Life to the Questions of Their Disciples.


VISITOR:    Are you Agaton?  We have heard what a great fornicator you are.

MASTER:    That is quite correct, that's just what I am.

VISITOR:    Are you the Agaton who is such a slanderer and calumniator of men? 

MASTER:    Yes, that's who I am.  

VISITOR:    Are you not Agaton, the heretic?  

MASTER:    No, I am not!  A heretic I have never been.       

VISITOR:    Tell us why you willingly bore what we said at first, but our last remark you will not tolerate at all?  

MASTER:     I took what you said first, because it was good for me to do so; but were I to declare myself a heretic, I would be separating myself from the Lord.
