But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not look at his appearance or at the height of his stature, because I have rejected him; for God sees not as man sees, for man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.”

I cannot sufficiently be astonished that such is the insanity of some men,
 such the impiety of their blinded understanding,
such, finally, their lust after error,
that they will not be content with the rule of faith delivered once and for all from antiquity,
 but must daily seek after something new,
and even newer still,
and are always longing to add something to religion,
or to change it, or to subtract from it!

"For One in such a lofty position to stoop so low is a marvel that is staggering.
 What sublime humility and humble sublimeness, that the Lord of the Universe,
the Divine Son of God, should stoop as to hide Himself
under the appearance of bread for our salvation!
Behold the humble way of God, my brothers.
Therefore, do not hold yourselves to be anything of yourselves,
 so that you may be entirely acceptable to One Who gives Himself entirely to you."

St. Basil the Great

Sounds like there was an antipope involved.

The Arian heresy among Bishops is what we have involved here, if I have my facts straight.

"You may dazzle the mind with a thousand brilliant discoveries of natural science; you may open new worlds of knowledge which were never dreamed of before; yet, if you have not developed in the soul of the pupil strong habits of virtue which will sustain her in the struggle of life, you have not educated her, but only put in her hand a powerful instrument of self-destruction."

"From Syria to Rome I must do battle with beasts on land and sea. For day and night I am chained to ten leopards, that is, the soldiers who guard me and grow more ferocious the better they are treated. Their mistreatment is good instruction for me, yet am I still far from justified. Oh, that I may meet the wild beasts now kept in readiness for me. I shall implore them to give me death promptly and to hasten my departure. I shall invite them to devour me so that they will not leave my body unharmed as already has happened to other witnesses. If they refuse to pounce upon me, I shall impel them to eat me. My little children, forgive me these words. Surely I know what is good for me. From things visible I no longer desire anything; I want to find Jesus. Fire and cross, wild beasts, broken bones, lacerated members, a body wholly crushed, and Satan's every torment, let them all overwhelm me, if only I reach Christ."
