i have a story for those of you who ever worry that you obsess too much about something: some of you may be familiar with one st. jerome, famous for his translation of the bible into latin. in section 30 of his letter 22 to eustochium (in english here for those who desire it), jerome relates a little story to us about his obsession with famous classical literature. highlights of this story:

  • jerome took some time off from society to do some nice fasting and self-reflection about what a sinful, sinful man he had been
  • apparently, at the top of his list of sins in his eyes was his love of latin lit (cicero being a particular favorite)
  • jerome loved his latin so much that he would fast in order to repent for his self-indulgence
  • yes, jerome fasted so that he could read cicero, an activity that most latin students would compare to getting one’s teeth pulled
  • literally kept himself from eating because he couldn’t be away from his ol’ pal cheech for too long
  • started wasting away because he was fasting too much and could not bring himself back to the light of god, so much so that, in his words, “meantime preparations for my funeral went on”
  • all because he really wanted to read his cicero
  • one day he had a vision/probably blacked out from hunger, in which he was standing before god, and god asked him who he was, to which he responded that he was a christian
  • god looked this motherfucker in the eyes and told him ciceronianus es, non christianus- you’re a follower of cicero, not a follower of christ
  • after that jerome repented of his sinful ways and did not indulge himself in pagan delights

so next time you’re afraid that you’re too into something, just remember that st. jerome loved his cicero so much that god came to him in a vision and told him to take that shit down a notch
