There was a certain monk who lost himself in the desert, and he said to himself, 'I have kept myself rightly, and I possess all the virtues,' and he prayed to God and said, 'If I be lacking in anything, show you me how I may perform it.' And God, wishing to humble his mind, said to him, Go to such and such a head of a monastery , and whatsoever he tells you to do that do.' And God sent a revelation to the head of the monastery, and said to him, 'Behold, such and such a monk will come to you, and say you to him, Take a whip in your hands, and go forth and pasture swine.' ' And the monk went forth immediately, even as the head of the monastery told him, and pastured swine, and when those who had known him formerly, and those who had heard about him, saw him pasturing swine, they said, ' you see the great monk about whom we have heard, behold, his heart has gone mad, and a devil has seized him, and he is [now] pasturing swine.' Then God, when He saw his humility, and that he was hearing and bearing the reproach of men, set him free so that he might go back where he had been formerly.
