A brother in a monastery was falsely accused of fornication and he arose and went to Abba Anthony. The brethren also came from the monastery to correct him and bring him back. They set about proving that he had done this thing, but he defended himself and denied that he had done anything of the kind.

Now Abba Paphnutius, who is called Cephalus, happened to be there, and he told them this parable: 'I have seen a man on the bank of the river buried up to his knees in mud and some men came to give him a hand to help him out, but they pushed him further in up to his neck.

So, admonished by the Fathers, they took the brother back to the monastery. Some say of Saint Anthony that he was 'Spirit-borne', that is, carried along by the Holy Spirit, but he would never speak of this to men. Such men see what is happening in the world, as well as knowing what is going to happen. One day Abba Anthony received a letter from the Emperor Constantius, asking him to come to Constantinople and he wondered whether he ought to go.

So he said to Abba Paul, his disciple, 'Ought I to go? For love casts out fear. He also said, Always have the fear of God before your eyes. Remember him who gives death and life. Hate the world and all that is in it. Hate all peace that comes from the flesh. Renounce this life, so that you may be alive to God.

Remember what you have promised God, for it will be required of you on the day of judgement. Suffer hunger, thirst, nakedness, be watchful and sorrowful; weep, and groan in your heart; test yourselves, to see if you are worthy of God; despise the flesh, so that you may preserve your souls. Abba Anthony once went to visit Abba Amoun in Mount Nitria and when they met, Abba Amoun said, 'By your prayers, the number of the brethren increases, and some of them want to build more cells where they may live in peace.

How far away from here do you think we should build the cells? Then when those who remain there want to visit those who have come here, they can take a little food at the ninth hour and then come.

If they do this, they will be able to keep in touch with each other without distraction of mind. Abba Anthony said, 'Whoever hammers a lump of iron, first decides what he is going to make of it, a scythe, a sword, or an axe. Even so we ought to make up our minds what kind of virtue we want to forge or we labour in vain. He also said, 'Obedience with abstinence gives men power over wild beasts. He also said, 'Nine monks fell away after many labours and were obsessed with spiritual pride, for they put their trust in their Arsenius own works and being deceived they did not give due heed to the commandment that says, "Ask your father and he will tell you.

And he said this, 'If he is able to, a monk ought to tell his elders confidently how many steps he takes and how many drops of water he drinks in his cell, in case he is in error about it. A well-educated man, of senatorial rank, be was appointed by the Emperor Tbeodosius I as tutor to the princes Arcadius and Honorius. He left the palace in and sailed secretly to Alexandria. From there he went to Seeds and placed himself under the guidance of Abba John the Dwarf.

He became an anchorite near Petra in Seeds. He seems to have had only three disciples, Alexander, Zoilus and Daniel. He was renowned for his austerity and silence and this combined with his learning made him seem somewhat forbidding to the Coptic monks. After the second devastation of Seeds in he went to the mountain ofTroe where he died in While still living in the palace, Abba Arsenius prayed to God in these words, 'Lord, lead me in the way of salvation.

Having withdrawn to the solitary life he made the same prayer again and he heard a voice saying to him, Arsenius, flee, be silent, pray always, for these are the source of sinlessness.

It happened that when Abba Arsenius was sitting in his cell that he was harassed by demons.

His servants, on their return, stood outside his cell and heard him praying to God in these words, 'O God, do not leave me. I have done nothing good in your sight, but according to your goodness, let me now make a beginning of good. It was said of him that, just as none in the palace had worn more splendid garments than he when he lived there, so no-one in the Church wore such poor clothing. Someone said to blessed Arsenius, 'How is it that we, with all our education and our wide knowledge get no-where, while these Egyptian peasants acquire so many virtues?

One day Abba Arsenius consulted an old Egyptian monk about his own thoughts. Someone noticed this and said to him, Abba Arsenius, how is it that you with such a good Latin and Greek education, ask this peasant about your thoughts? Blessed Archbishop Theophilus, accompanied by a magistrate, came one day to find Abba Arsenius.

He questioned the old man, to hear a word from him. After a short silence the old man answered him, 'Will you put into practice what I say to you?

Another time the archbishop, intending to come to see him, sent someone to see if the old man would receive him. Arsenius told him, 'If you come, I shall receive you; but if I receive you, I receive everyone and therefore I shall no longer live here. A brother questioned Abba Arsenius to hear a word of him and the old man said to him, 'Strive with all your might to bring your interior activity into accord with God, and you will overcome exterior passions. He also said, 'If we seek God, he will shew himself to us, and if we keep him, he will remain close to us.

Someone said to Abba Arsenius, 'My thoughts trouble me, saying, "You can neither fast nor work; at least go and visit the sick, for that is also charity. Abba Arsenius used to say that a monk travelling abroad should not get involved in anything; thus he will remain in peace.

Arsenius Abba Mark said to Abba Arsenius, 'Why do you avoid us? The thousands and ten thousands of the heavenly hosts have but one will, while men have many. So I cannot leave God to be with men. Abba Daniel said of Abba Arsenius that he used to pass the whole night without sleeping, and in the early morning when nature compelled him to go to sleep, he would say to sleep, 'Come here, wicked servant.

Abba Arsenius used to say that one hour's sleep is enough for a monk if he is a good fighter. The old man used to tell how one day someone handed round a few dried figs in Scetis.

Because they were not worth anything, no-one took any to Abba Arsenius in order not to offend him. Learning of it, the old man did not come to the synaxis saying, 'You have cast me out by not giving me a share of the blessing which God had given the brethren and which I was not worthy to receive. Then the priest went to take him the small dried figs and brought him to the synaxis with joy.

Abba Daniel used to say, 'He lived with us many a long year and every year we used to take him only one basket of bread and when we went to find him the next year we would eat some of that bread.

It was said of the same Abba Arsenius that he only changed the water for his palm-leaves once a year; the rest of the time he simply added to it. One old man implored him in these words, 'Why do you not change the water for these palm-leaves when it smells bad?

Abba Daniel used to tell how when Abba Arsenius learned that all the varieties of fruit were ripe he would say, 'Bring me some. The Sayings of the Desert Fathers Once at Scetis Abba Arsenius was ill and he was without even a scrap of linen. As he had nothing with which to download any, he received some through another's charity and he said, 'I give you thanks, Lord, for having considered me worthy to receive this charity in your name.

It was said of him that his cell was thirty -two miles away and that he did not readily leave it: that in fact others did his errands.

When Scetis was destroyed he left weeping and said, 'The world has lost Rome and the monks have lost Scetis. Abba Mark asked Abba Arsenius, 'Is it good to have nothing extra in the cell? I know a brother who had some vegetables and he has pulled them up. For if he does not have the strength for such a practice he will soon plant others. He lay down and stared up into the air because of his sorrow. Now it happened that the blessed Arsenius came to speak with him and saw him lying down.

During their conversation he said to him, And who was the layman whom I saw here? Good; I thought it was a layman and that was why I asked you.

Another time Abba Arsenius said to Abba Alexander, 'When you have cut your palm-leaves, come and eat with me, but if visitors come, eat with them. When the time came, he had not finished the palm leaves and wishing to follow the old man's instructions, he waited until he had finished them. When Abba Arsenius saw that he was late, he ate, thinking that he had had guests. But Abba Alexander, when at last he had finished, came away. And the old man said to him, 'Have you had visitors? One day Abba Arsenius came to a place where there were reeds blowing in the wind.

The old man said to the brothers, 'What is this movement? How much worse it is when you hear the movement of those reeds. Abba Daniel said that some brothers proposing to go to the Thebaid to find some flax said, 'Let us also take the opportunity to see Abba Arsenius.

Make them rest and send them away in peace and tell them the old man cannot receive them. A brother came to the cell of Abba Arsenius at Scetis. Waiting outside the door he saw the old man entirely like a flame.

THE ALPHABETICAL COLLECTION Translated, with a foreword by

The brother was worthy of this sight. When he knocked, the old man came out and saw the brother marvelling. He said to him, 'Have you been knocking long? Did you see anything here? When Abba Arsenius was living at Canopus, a very rich and God-fearing virgin of senatorial rank came from Rome to see him.

When the Archbishop Theophilus met her, she asked him to persuade the old man to receive her. So he went to ask him to do so in these words, A certain person of senatorial rank has come from Rome and wishes to see you. But when the archbishop told the young girl this, she ordered the beast of burden to be saddled saying, 'I trust in God that I shall see him, for it is not a man whom I have come to see there are plenty of those in our town , but a prophet.

Seeing him, she threw herself at his feet.

Outraged, he lifted her up again, and said, looking steadily at her, 'If you must see my face, here it is, look. Then the old man said to her, 'Have you not heard tell of my way of life? It ought to be respected.

How dare you make such a journey? Do you not realise you are a woman and cannot go just anywhere? Or is it so that on returning to Rome you can say to other women: I have seen Arsenius? Then they will turn the sea into a thoroughfare with women coming to see me.

When she had returned to the town, in her grief she fell ill with a fever, and blessed Archbishop Theophilus was informed that she was ill. He came to see her and asked her to tell him what was the matter.

She said to him, 'If only I had not gone there! For I asked the old man to remember me, he said to me, "I pray God to take the remembrance of you from my heart.

That is the explanation of the old man's words; but as for your soul, he will pray for it continually. Abba David related this about Abba Arsenius. One day a magistrate came, bringing him the will of a senator, a member of his family who had left him a very large inheritance.


Arsenius took it and was about to destroy it. But the magistrate threw himself at his feet saying, 'I beg you, do not destroy it or they will cut off my head. It was also said of him that on Saturday evenings, preparing for the glory of Sunday, he would turn his back on the sun and stretch out his hands in prayer towards the heavens, till once again the sun shone on his face. Then he would sit down.

It was said of Abba Arsenius and Abba Theodore of Pherme that, more than any of the others, they hated the esteem of other Arsenius men. Abba Arsenius would not readily meet people, while Abba Theodore was like steel when he met anyone.

In the days when Abba Arsenius was living in Lower Egypt he was continually interrupted there and so he judged it right to leave his cell. Without taking anything away with him, he went to his disciples at Pharan, Alexander and Zoilus. He said to Alexander, 'Get up, and get into the boat,' which he did. And he said to Zoilus, 'Come with me as far as the river and find me a boat which will take me to Alexandria; then embark, so as to rejoin your brother.

So they parted company. The old man went down to the regions of Alexandria where he fell seriously ill. His disciples said to each other, 'Perhaps one of us has annoyed the old man, and that is the reason why he has gone away from us?

Once he was better, the old man said, 'I will return to my Fathers. While he was close to the river, a little Ethiopian slave-girl came and touched his sheepskin. The old man rebuked her and she replied, 'If you are a monk, go to the mountain.


Then, when they threw themselves at his feet, the old man fell down with them also and they wept together. The old man said to them, 'Did you not hear that I was ill? Iar batranul n-a primit sa se intalneasca cu dansa. Deci, dupa ce i s-a vestit ei de acestea, a poruncit sa i se gateasca dobitoacele, zicand : cred lui Dumnezeu, ca-l voi vedea pe el, caci nu om am venit sa vad, caci sunt si in cetatea noastra multi oameni; ci prooroc am venit sa vad.

Si dupa ce a ajuns la chilia batranului, din iconomia lui Dumnezeu, a gasit pe batran afara din chilie, zabovindu-se cu oarecare lucrare. Si vazandu-l a cazut la picioarele lui. Iar el a ridicat-o cu manie si a luat seama la dansa zicand : daca fata mea vrei s-o vezi, iat-o, vezi-o!

Iar ea de rusine n-a cautat la fata lui. Si i-a zis batranul : n-ai auzit de lucrurile mele? Acestea sunt de nevoie sa le vezi. Cum ai indraznit sa faci atata cale pe mare?

Nu stii ca esti femeie si nu ti se cade sa iesi niciodata nicaieri? Sau ca sa mergi la Roma si sa zici catre celelalte femei ca ai vazut pe Arsenie si sa se faca marea drum de femei, care sa vina la mine? Iar ea a zis : de va voi Domnul, nu voi lasa pe niciuna sa vina aici. Ci roaga-te pentru mine si ma pomeneste totdeauna! Iar el raspunzand a zis : ma rog lui Dumnezeu, ca sa se stearga pomenirea ta din inima mea.

Si acestea auzind, a iesit tulburata. Si daca a venit in cetate, de mahnire a cazut in friguri si s-a vestit fericitului Teofil arhiepiscopul pentru dansa ca este bolnava. Si venind la dansa, o ruga sa-i spuna ce are. Iar ea a zis catre dansul : o, da n-as mai fi venit aici! Si el a zis : ma rog lui Dumnezeu, ca sa se stearga pomenirea ta din inima mea.

Si iata, eu mor de mahnire! Si i-a zis ei arhiepiscopul : au nu stii ca esti femeie si prin femei vrajmasul aduce in lupta pe sfinti? Pentru aceasta a zis batranul asa. Ca pentru sufletul tau se roaga totdeauna. Si asa s-a mangaiat sufletul ei si s-a dus cu bucurie la ale sale. Povestit-a avva Daniil pentru avva Arsenie, ca a venit odata un magistru invatator de legi , aducandu-i o diata testament a unui boier, rudenie a lui, care ii lasa foarte multa mostemire. Si luand-o pe ea, vroia sa o rupa si a cazut magistrul la picioarele lui, zicand : rogu-te, nu o rupe, ca mi se ia capul.

Si i-a zis avva Arsenie lui : eu mai inainte de acela am murit, iar el acum a murit. Si a trimis-o inapoi, nimic primind. Se spunea iarasi pentru el,ca in seara sambetelor, pe cand se lumina spre duminica, lasa soarele inapoia lui si intindea mainile la cer, rugandu-se, pana iarasi stralucea soarele in fata lui si asa sedea.

Se zicea pentru avva Arsenie si pentru avva Teodor al Fermei, ca mai mult decat toate, urau slava oamenilor. Pentru aceasta Arsenie nu intampina lesne pe cineva, iar avva Teodor intampina cu adevarat, dar ca o sabie ii era. Sezand odata avva Arsenie in partile cele de jos si suparandu-se acolo, a socotit sa lase chilia, si neluand nimic dintr-ansa, asa s-a dus catre ucenicii sai faraniti Alexandru si Zoil.

Si a facut asa. Si lui Zoil i-a zis : vino cu mine pana la rau si imi cauta o corabie care sa mearga la Alexandria si asa intorcandu-te si tu, plutind cu corabia la fratele tau! Iar Zoil tulburandu-se pentru cuvantul acesta, a tacut. Si asa s-au despartit unii de altii. Deci s-a pogorat batranul spre partile Alexandriei si s-a bolnavit de boala mare. Iar insotitorii lui au zis intre dansii : nu cumva vreunul din noi a scarbit pe batranul si pentru aceasta s-a despartit de noi?

Si n-au aflat intre dansii nimic, nici ca nu l-au ascultat pe dansul candva. Iar dupa ce s-a insanatosit batranul a zis : sa ma duc la parintii mei. Si asa venind cu corabia inapoi, a mers la piatra unde erau slujitorii lui. Si fiind el aproape de rau, venind o copila etiopiana, s-a atins de cojocul lui. Iar batranul a certat-o pe ea. Dar copila i-a zis lui : de esti calugar, du-te la munte! Iar batranul umilindu-se de cuvantul acesta, zicea intru sine : Arsenie, de esti calugar, du-te la munte!

Si intre acestea au venit la dansul Alexandru si Zoil si cazand ei la picioarele lui, s-a aruncat si batranul jos si au plans catestrei.

Si a zis batranul : nu ati auzit ca m-am imbolnavit? Si i-au zis lui : am auzit.

Si zicea batranul : si pentru ce nu ati venit sa ma vedeti? Si i-a zis lui avva Alexandru : pentru ca despartirea ta de noi nu a fost placuta si multi nu s-au folosit, zicand ca de nu ar fi calcat cuvantul batranului nu s-ar fi despartit de dansii.

Zis-a batranul lor : iarasi dar vor zice oamenii ca nu a aflat porumbita odihna picioarelor sale si s-a intors la Noe in corabie 1. Si asa s-au mangaiat ei si a petrecut cu dansii pana la sfarsitul sau. Zis-a avva Daniil : ne-a povestit noua avva Arsenie ca pentru el, desi poate chiar el era.

Ca sezand un batran in chilia sa i-a venit un glas zicand : vino si iti voi arata lucrurile oamenilor. Si sculandu-se, a iesit si l-a dus pe el intr-ul loc si i-a aratat un arap taind lemne si facand o sarcina mare si acela se ispitea sa o ridice, dar nu putea. Si in loc de a mai lua dintr-ansa, el mergand mai taia lemne si adaoga peste sarcina. Si aceasta o facea vreme indelungata si mergand putin mi inainte, iarasi i-au aratat lui un om stand langa un lac si scotand apa dintr-ansul si turnand-o intr-un jgheab gaurit, din care curgea iarasi in lac.

Si i-a zis lui iarasi : vino sa-ti arat alta : si a vazut o biserica si doi oameni calari pe cai tinand o prajina de-a curmezisul, unul impotriva altuia. Si voiau sa intre prin usa si nu puteau, pentru ca era prajina de-a curmezisul si nu s-a smerit nici unul pe sine inapoia celuilalt, ca sa intoarca prajina de-a dreptul si pentru aceasta au ramas afara de usa. Si batranul a zis : acestia sunt oamenii care poarta cu mandrie cumpana, ca si cum ar fi a dreptatii si nu s-au smerit ca sa se indrepteze pe sine si sa calatoreasca pe calea cea smerita a lui Hristos.

Pentru aceasta si raman afara de Imparatia lui Dumnezeu.

Iar cel ce taia lemne, este omul cel intru multe pacate, care in loc de a se pocai, adaoga alte faradelegi, intru pacatele sale. Si cel ce scotea apa, este omul cel care face lucruru bune, dar pentru ca are intru dansele amestecare rea, cu aceasta a prapadit si lucrurile cele bune ale sale.

Deci tot omul trebuie sa fie treaz la lucrurile sale, ca sa nu se osteneasca in desert. Tot acesta a povestit, ca odata au venit niste parinti de la Alexandria, ca sa vada pe avva Arsenie. Si unul dintre dansii era unchi al lui Timotei celui de demult, care a fost arhiepiscop al Alexandriei si se numea neagonisitor, adica sarac.

Si avea tovaras pe unul din copiii fratelui sau. Iar batranul se afla atunci bolnav si nu a voit sa-i intalneasca pe ei, ca sa nu mai vina si altii sa-l supere.

Si era atunci la piatra Troiei si ei s-au intors mahniti. Dupa aceea s-a intamplat de s-a facut navalire a barbarilor si venind el, a petrecut prin partile cele de jos. Si auzind aceia, iarasi au venit sa-l vada pe el si cu bucurie i-a primit pe dansii. Si i-a zis lui batranul : voi ati gustat paine si ati baut apa; iar eu, fiule, cu adevarat nici paine, nici apa n-am gustat, nici am sezut jos, chinuindu-ma pe mine pana cand m-am instiintat ca ati ajuns la locul vostru, caci pentru mine si voi v-ati suparat, dar iertati-ma, fratilor.

Si mangaindu-se ei, s-au dus. Acesta zicea, ca l-a chemat intr-o zi avva Arsenie si i-a zis : odihneste pe parintele tau, ca dupa ce va merge catre Domnul, sa se roage pentru tine si iti va fi tie bine. Se spunea pentru avva Arsenie, ca bolnavindu-se odata la schit, s-a dus preotul si l-a adus la biserica si l-a pus pe asternut cu o perna mica la capul lui.

Si iata un batran venind sa-l cerceteze pe el si vazandu-l pe asternut si perna sub capul lui s-a smintit zicand : acesta este avva Arsenie? Si pe acestea este culcat? Si luandu-l pe el preotul indeosebi, i-a zis lui : ce lucru ai avut la satul tau, iar el a zis : pastor am fost.

Cum dar - a zis el - petreceai viata ta? Iar el a zis : cu multa osteneala petreceam. Si i-a zis lui iarasi : dar acum cum petreci la chilie?

Iar el a zis : mai mult ma odihnesc. Si atunci i-a zis lui : vezi pe avva Arsenie acesta? Cand a fost in lume era tata al imparatilor si mii de slugi cu brauri de aur incinsi si toti cu bratari si cu haine de matase imbracati stateau inaintea lui si asternuturi scumpe erau sub dansul.

Iar tu, apstor fiind, nu ai avut in lume odihna pe care o ai acum si acesta n-are aici desfatarea pe care a avut-o in lume. Iata, dar, tu te odihnesti, iar acesta se trudeste. Iar el auzind acestea, s-a umilit si a pus metanie zicand : iarta-ma, avvo, ca am gresit caci intr-adevar, aceasta este calea cea adevarata, ca acesta a venit la smerenie, iar eu la odihna.

Si folosindu-se batranul, s-a dus. A venit un parinte catre avva Arsenie si batand in usa, i-a deschis batranul, socotind ca este slujitorul sau. Si dupa ce l-a vazut pe el ca este altul, a cazut cu fata in jos.

Iar acela i-a zis lui : scoala, avvo, ca sa ma inchin tie. Si i-a zis batranul lui : nu ma scol, de nu te vei duce. Si mult rugandu-se, nu s-a sculat pana ce s-a dus. Deci i-au zis lui: odihneste-te putintel, frate, si-l vei vedea. Iar el a zis: nu gust nimic de nu ma voi intalni cu el. Au trimis dar un frate ca sa-i duca, ca era departe chilia lui. Si batand in usa, au intrat amandoi si inchinandu-se batranului, au sezut tacand. Deci a zis fratele cel de la schit: eu ma duc, rugati-va pentru mine!

Iar fratele cel strain neafland indrazneala catre batranul, a zis fratelui: vin si eu cu tine. Si au iesit impreuna. L-a rugat insa fratele cel strain zicand: ia-ma si la avva Moise cel din talhari.

Si venind ei la acela, i-a primit cu bucurie si gazduindu-i, i-a slobozit.
