EMBLEMA XXII.

Luna velut toto collustrans lumine terras,
Frustra allatrantes despicit alta canes:
Sic quisquis Christum allatrat Christive ministros,
Index stultitiae spernitor [=spernitur] usque suae.

As the moon shining down on the earth with all its light, high in the sky, despises dogs who bark at it in vain, so anyone who - a sign of his stupidity - rails at Christ and the ministers of Christ is continually spurned.
