More from the Desert Fathers

From The Desert Fathers:
Macarius the Great said, “If you are stirred to anger when you want to reprove someone, you are gratifying your own passions. Do not lose yourself in order to save another.”
Or, as a priest recently advised me: if you are having a hard time judging other people, try to focus on judging yourself instead. Funny how we are usually willing to give ourselves so much latitude.
