Abba Anthony said, 'I saw the snares that the enemy spreads out over the world and I said groaning, "What can get through from such snares?" Then I heard a voice saying to me, "Humility."'
He also said, 'Some have afflicted their bodies by asceticism, but they lack discernment, and so they are far from God.'
He also said, 'Our life and our death is with our neighbor. If we gain our brother, we have gained God, but if we scandalise our brother, we have sinned against Christ.'
St. Anthony the Great
