Let Him Rest

11 September 2013 | A Word From the Desert

Monk sleeping

Some monks said to Abba Poemen, “When we see brothers dozing during the services in church, should we rouse them so that they can be watchful?”

He said to them, “For my part, when I see a brother dozing, I put his head on my knees and let him rest.”
