Sayings of the Desert Fathers


ثلاثة أشياء يستنير بها العقل: الإحسان إلى مَن أســـاء
إليك، والصبر على ما ينالك مِن أعدائك، وترك
النظـــــــرأو الحسد لمَن يتقدمك في الدنيا. القوى القديس الأنبا موسي

Three things enlighten the mind: doing good to those who trespass against you, patiently enduring the hardships of the enemy, and abstaining from judgment and envy towards those preceding you in life.

-St. Moses the Strong
