Answer to "Who Said it?"

St. Maximos the Confessor.

(From Two Hundred Texts on Theology and the Incarnate Dispensation of the Son of God Written for Thalassios; Philokalia, v.2, II Century, 90)

Obviously St. Maximos, while sounding like Walther, was defining terms differently, speaking in an allegorical fashion, as the context suggests.

Thanks to everyone who guessed!

    Or maybe you are planning on trying to suggest that Walther is the reincarnation of Maximus - and I will have to hunt you down and give you the brotherly beat down.

    I hope not - that would make for a lousy vacation for you.
