You are mad; you are not like us!

Writing around the fourth century one of the great dessert fathers of the church wrote:

“A time is coming when men will go mad, and when they see someone who is not mad, they will attack him, saying, ‘You are mad; you are not like us.’”

— St. Anthony the Great

How true this rings today!
