The Desert Fathers, Sunday, March 27, 2011

Antony said, ‘Fish die if they stay on dry land, and in the same way monks who stay outside their cell or remain with secular people fall away from their vow of quiet. As a fish must return to the sea, so must we to our cell, in case by staying outside, we forget to watch inside.
Sayings of the Desert Fathers, Benedicta Ward
