A Blessed Great Lent to All

Once the Abbot of a monastery gave the order that the monks were to observe a fast for one week. However, it happened that during these days some monks from Egypt came to visit Abba Moses the Ethiopian. In order to feed them, the hospitable Abba prepared some lentils. Upon seeing smoke coming from his hut, several not so virtuous brothers reported to the Abbot: “Moses disobeyed your instructions and is preparing food.”

On Sunday, when the monks gathered in the church, the Abbot approached Abba Moses and loudly said, so as to be heard by all: “Well done, Abba Moses, for you did not heed the command of man, but rather the commandment of God, that of love of others.” – Saying of the Desert Fathers & Mothers
