When Hesperus was making his confession
of sins, according to the sacred rite,
the careful priest explored his conscience, asking
questions on every kind of sin he might
have done”among them, had he, like the pagans,
ever believed in demons? He replied,
“What! Do I believe in demons, Father?
I barely believe in God, hard as I’ve tried.”
