Jerome’s Disdain for Christian Athletes

Our fine, erect, muscular athletes … hardly make a shadow of a footmark in their swift passage, whose words are in their fists and their reasoning in their heels, who either know nothing of apostolic poverty and the hardness of the cross or despise it [should at least learn about discipleship from Gentile philosophers] — St Jerome

Yeah, pretty much.
