On one occasion when Abba John and the brothers who were with him were going up from Scete, he who was guiding them lost the way, and the brothers said to Abba John, What will we do, father? For this brother has lost the way, and peradventure we will die in wandering about.' Abba John said to them, 'If you tell him he will be grieved and feel ashamed. But behold I will feign to be sick, and will say that I am not able to go on any further'; and the brothers said, 'Father, you have well said.' And they acted thus, and decided that they would stay where they were until the morning, rather than rebuke the brother who was guiding them.

  • The Quies SBPCLC 5 steps commitment to the 11 guidelines is founded in sanctifying grace, which is the Life in us of the Most Holy Trinity
  • Quies is the fruit of being continually in the Presence, Love and  Will of God, living with and in the personal intimate friendship with the person of the Lord Jesus-Christ, a grace we personally and collectively aspire and feel called to fulfill as lay faithful, essentially guided by Saint Bruno's desert fathers spirituality: being with Christ.

Q: "What does one learn in the desert?"
Father Mina: "To have an authentic sincere Love towards Christ"
Q: "What experience of God do we make here?"
Father Mina: "We make the experience of the personal intimate friendship with the person of the Lord Jesus-Christ... The interior real lived sentiment of the intimacy with the Lord: I Am with you."
Q: "Thank you"
Father Mina was the first companion of Father Matta El-Maskine, one of the first 7 hermits of the Saint Macarius Monastery. He lives here in the manner of the first monks of the desert.
