Abba Isidore of Pelusia: Are You Doing Good by Your Silence?

Feast of St Proclus, Archbishop of Constantinople

Desert_Father_Square_5.jpegABBA ISIDORE of Pelusia said, “To live without speaking is better than to speak without living. For the former who lives rightly does good even by his silence but the latter does no good even when he speaks. When words and life correspond to one another they are together the whole of philosophy.”
