Silence

Silence

Abba Macarius said, 'When Mass is ended in the Church, flee my brothers' and one answered, 'In this solitude, where to can we further flee?' Abba Macarius laid his FINGER ON HIS MOUTH, saying, 'THIS is what you should flee from, and go into your cell, shut the door and sit there alone.'
