A Word from the Fathers & Mothers

Honor God in dee, praise Him in word, and unceasingly remember Him in the heart.  Teache the virtues by word, but preach about them by deed.  Abba Isaiah to Amma Theodora, from the Matericon

Let yourself be despised, cast your own will behind your back, and you will be free from care and at peace.  Abba Sisoes, from the Sayings of the Desert Fathers
