“An old man said: ‘One man is thought to be silent, and yet his heart judges and condemns others, and the one who acts thus speaks continually. Another man speaks from morning till evening and yet keeps silence, that is to say, he speaks nothing which is not helpful.'”
A saying from the desert fathers and mothers
“It is often in times of great trial that the Lord presents us with the greatest opportunity for holiness. The question for each of us, then, is whether we will recognize the Lord as he ‘closely passes us by’ and respond, by his grace, with simple acts of faith, hope and charity.”
