From the Sayings of the Desert Fathers
- The devil appeared to a monk, disguised as an angel of light, and said to him, ‘I am the angel Gabriel and I have been sent to you.’ But the monk said, ‘see if you have not been sent to someone else; I am not worthy to have an angel sent to me.’ At once the devil vanished.
Daily Reflections with the Desert Fathers
