7.1.2 Source

From the Wisdom of the Fathers

Abbas Mose: ”When someone carries their own sin, they do not look at others.” (510)

Abbas Ammonas: the Bishop who sat on the barrel (122)

Abbas Poimen: “If a person sins and lies about it, saying “I did not sin” do not judge them. Otherwise you will take their courage. If you say “Don’t be without courage, my brother, and be careful in future” then you will awaken repentance in their soul!” (597)

Abbas Poimen: To admonish your neighbor is the same as accusing him (731)

A final piece of wisdom from the Fathers – “Advice can be equivalent to a beating.”
