I’m just working through Chrysostom on Hebrews, and gleaning all sorts of gems, as usual. But along the way, this great truism:
For the human race is hard to persuade, and needs much attention, even more than plants. (Homily 12 on Hebrews; 4)
Umm… I mean I know the guy went a bit funny due to his severe asceticism, but I’m curious: did he ever manage to actually convince any plants??
