Wisdom from the Desert!

St_ Makarios the Great - St Maximos - St Domadios“The heart itself is only a small vessel,

yet dragons are there, and lions;

there are poisonous beasts

and all the treasures of evil;

there are rough and uneven roads;

there are precipices;

but there too, are God and His angels,

life is there too, and the Kingdom;

there, too, is light, and there the apostles,

and heavenly cities, and treasures of grace.

All things lie within that little space.”


St Makarios the Great
