Sayings of the Desert Fathers - Judging
- A brother in Scetis committed a fault. A council was called to which Abba Moses was invited, but refused to go to it. Then the priest sent someone to him, saying, �Come for everyone is waiting for you.� So he got up and went. He took a leaking jug and filled it with water and carried it with him. The other came out to meet him, and said, �What is this father?� The old man said to them, �My sins run out behind me, and I do not see them, and today I am coming to judge another.� When they heard that, they said no more to the brother but forgave him.
