Salaam and Greetings of Peace:
“A brother in Scetis committed a fault. A council was called to which Abba Moses was invited, but he 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 others came out to meet him and said, ‘What is this, father?’ The old man said to them, ‘My sins run out from behind me, and I do not see them, and today I am coming to judge the errors of another.’ When they heard that, they were ashamed and said no more to the brother but forgave him.”
Note: Abba Moses was one of the early Christian Desert Fathers, monks who lived a monastic and ascetic life before the coming of Islam. Scetis is west of the Nile in Egypt. From the book, The Sayings of the Desert Fathers.
