Saying of the Day

A brother said to Abba Serapion, "Give me a word." The old man said to him, "What shall I say to you? You have taken the living of the widows and orphans and put it on your shelves." For he saw them full of books.

Sayings. Serapion. 2

    I am going to feel guilty every time I buy books for class now.

    Three things: 1. Books were much more expensive then; 2. You need some books for Sem; 3. If you feel condemned, just take a look at my study sometime.
