A saying from a Desert Father

Abba Lot went to see Abba Joseph and said to him, ‘Abba, as far as I can I say my little office, I fast a little, I pray and meditate, I live in peace and as far as I can, I purify my thoughts. What else can I do?’

Then the old man stood up and stretched his hands towards heaven. His fingers became like ten lamps of fire and he said to him, ‘If you will, you can become all flame.’

In the chapel, I looked at the order of service from the gospel service and read this:

"The Jesus in me loves the Jesus in you. The Jesus in you loves the Jesus in me. So easy, so easy, so easy to love!"

Humans always managed to fail spectacularly, but I was pleased to read this; someone in the chapel community is starting to "get it".
