Cup of Poison

The brothers surrounded John the Short when he was sitting in front of the church, and each of them asked him about their thoughts. When he saw this, another hermit was jealous, and said, "John, your cup is full of poison."

John answered, "Yes, abba it is. But you said that when you could only see the outside; I wonder what you would say if you saw the inside."

~~St. John the Evangelist with the Poisoned Cup by Alonso Cano
