Who will be able to build up human souls like him? Who from now on will add to the churches the people that they lack? Who will adorn the holy gates like him? Who is as able as he? Who will be able to make his rounds night and day, when he would walk on foot, ablaze in his zeal, and speedily come to help all people in their need? We will not find another one like this upon the earth: one who would cast aside possessions like him, willingly choose poverty for himself, love God, and trample upon the glory of this life. Who could produce for himself freedom like this, that he could fight in behalf of righteousness, go to meet with the authorities, and speak boldly in the face of the vain assaults of the rulers? He used to persuade them with his words; he would shame them by his manner, make them be silent by his lifestyle, cause them to marvel at his boldness, and restrain them by his holiness. Whom have the people loved more?
