Become All Flame

29 October 2013 | A Word From the Desert

Abba Joseph came to Abba Lot and said to him:  ‘Father, according to my strength I keep a moderate rue of prayer and fasting, quiet and meditation, and as far as I can I control my imagination;  what more must I do?’

All flame

And the old man rose and held his hands towards the sky so that his fingers became like flames of fire and he said: ‘If you will, you shall become all flame.’
