A Word from the Fathers & Mothers
“Every virtue that is acquired without much effort is not strong and is easily shaken by the wind.” Abba Isaac to Ammah Theodora, from the Matericon
“How can we save our souls, good sister, when the door of the tongue is open? Unless we force our souls to stillness, prayer, and silence, we cannot be saved.
Ammah Syncletica, from the Matericon
