They were ascetics, yet so human, so immensely compassionate not only to the needs of men but also to their frailty and their sins; men and women wrapped in a depth of inner silence of which we have no idea and who taught by 'Being', ruthless to themselves, not by speech: 'If a man cannot understand my silence, he will never understand my words.

If we wish to understand the sayings of the fathers, let us approach them with veneration, their ruthless determination, silencing our judgments and our own thoughts in order to meet them on their own ground and perhaps to partake ultimately - if we prove able to emulate their earnestness in the search, their infinite compassion—in their own silent communion with God.

We have a great deal to learn from their integrity and their unrelenting courage, from their vision of God - so Holy, possessed of such a love, so great, that nothing less than one's whole being could respond to it. These were men and women who had reached a humility of which we have no idea, but in the vision of God, because it is not rooted in an hypocritical or contrived depreciation of self, and a humbling experience of being so loved.
