So many people, especially educated ones and even more especially educated converts, jump into the Fathers with both feet.

That is true. A lot of people also jump into medieval mystics in that same way and come up with some very peculiar ideas! (Remember the old joke that "mysticism" begins in mist and ends in schism?) So it's very important to cling to orthodoxy and have a guide in these matters.

From your lips to God’s ears! Let’s pray that God sends good spiritual fathers to all Christians.
