Headword: Μωρία διὰ Χριστόν
Adler number: mu,1339
Translated headword: foolishness through Christ
Vetting Status: high
"[What is foolishness according to[1] Christ?] When we restrain our own thoughts, out of mad desire ahead of time; when we make our intellect void and empty of external education—so that, when it must accept the things of Christ, we hand it over at leisure and swept clean, to accept the divine words."
Greek Original:
Μωρία διὰ Χριστόν: ὅταν τοὺς οἰκείους λογισμοὺς λυττῶντας ἀκαίρως καταστέλλωμεν, ὅταν ἔρημον καὶ κενὴν τὴν ἡμετέραν διάνοιαν τῆς ἔξωθεν ποιῶμεν παιδεύσεως, ἵν' ὅταν δέῃ τὰ τοῦ Χριστοῦ δέχεσθαι, σχολάζουσαν καὶ σεσαρωμένην αὐτὴν πρὸς ὑποδοχὴν τῶν θείων λόγων παρέχωμεν.
John Chrysostom, On the Incomprehensible Nature of God 2 line 71 Malingrey (= PG 48, 710bc).
[1] The preposition is κατά here, διά (as in the present lemma) a little earlier.
