Desert Fathers, Saint Quotes, The Great Fast -

Wisdom from a Desert Father

During the Great Fast, we'll feature quotes from the Desert Fathers, written in the book The Sayings of the Desert Fathers - The Alphabetical Collection, translated by Benedicta Ward, SLG. This week's quote features Abba Anthony.
“A brother said to Abba Anthony, ‘Pray for me.’ The old man said to him, ‘I will have no mercy upon you, nor will God have any, if you yourself do not make an effort and if you do not pray to God.’ ”

Programming note - our platform does not allow for direct response to comments. We do read them and are praying for our listeners. God bless!
