“The healthy do not need a physician. But that nature, which was weighed down by many diseases, obtained such a great physician that, once healed of its disease, it recovered a state of health even better than when it had been well before.
But where now is that hostile and bewildered dragon? Where is that cursed and execrable dragon, who had claimed that his throne would be raised to the heights of heaven?”
Amphilochius of Iconium, On Christmas 4; PG 39, 40 D-41 B
