If he is not edified…

“When Abba Pambo was asked to say a few words to the very important Bishop of Alexandria, who was visiting some of the Desert Fathers, the elder replied: “If he is not edified by my silence, there is no hope that he will be edified by my words.”

 

“Cuando se le pidió a Abba Pambo que diga algunas palabras ante el Obispo de Alejandría, quien se encontraba visitando a algunos Padres del Desierto, el anciano respondió: “Si el no se instruye con mi silencio, no hay esperanzas de que sea instruído con mis palabras.”
