Homilies on the Epistle of the Apostle Paul to Titus: Saint John Chrysostom
The next morning, the blessed patriarch John Chrysostom himself remembered the man and asked Proclus, Did the man whom I asked you to admit to my room come here?
Yes Father, Proclus replied. He came here three nights in succession, but you were conversing in private with another man. Therefore I did not dare to announce him.
With whom was I conversing? asked John. No one was with me these past few nights.
Proclus then described the appearance of the man whom he had seen and told Saint John how the visitor bent over and spoke in his ear. Then Proclus happened to glance at the icon of the Holy Apostle Paul on the wall of Saint John's cell and cried, Behold, this is the man I saw speaking with you! It was the saint depicted on this icon!
Both John and Proclus gave thanks to God, the one because the learning that the Apostle mystically inspired him as he wrote, and the other because he had been deemed worthy to behold one of the inhabitants of heaven. -- Backcover
