Saying of the Day

One day blessed Theophilus the archbishop came to the mountain of Nitria and the abba of the mountain came to meet him. The archbishop said to him, "Father, in this way of life which you follow, what do you find to be best?" The old man said to him, "The act of accusing myself, and of constantly reproaching myself to myself." Abba Theophilus said to him, "There is no other way but this."

Sayings. Theophilus the Archbishop. 1
