Ammonas, the disciple of St. Antony the Great
- For Moses, having received the Spirit, prayed for the people, saying to God, �If you wipe them out, then wipe me out of your Book of Life (Ex. 32:31). You see that his care was to pray for others, having attained to such a measure. But only few among many have attained to this measure as to pray for their neighbors.
