Nicene and Ante-Nicene Fathers, Ser. II, Vol. XI:
The Works of John Cassian.: Chapter XXIX. An objection, asking why those who are tormented by unclean spirits are separated from the Lord's communion.

Early Church Fathers  Index     

Chapter XXIX.

An objection, asking why those who are tormented by unclean spirits are separated from the Lord’s communion.

Germanus:  And how is it that we see them not only scorned and shunned by everybody, but actually always kept away from the Lord’s communion in our provinces, in accordance with these words of the gospel: “Give not that which is holy to the dogs, neither cast your pearls before swine;” 1498 while you tell us that somehow we ought to hold that the humiliation of this temptation is brought upon them with a view to their purification and profit?
