On one occasion a certain brother came to Mount Sinai to visit Abba Sylvanus, and he saw the brothers working with their hands to supply their wants, and he said to Abba Sylvanus, with boasting, 'You toil for the food which perisheth; Mary chose a good portion for herself.' Then Abba Sylvanus said to Zechariah, his disciple, 'Give him a hook and take him to a cell wherein there is nothing.' And when the time of the ninth hour had come, the brother looked this way and that way to see if they were going to send for him to come and eat, but no man came to seek him. Then he rose up and came to the old man and said to him, ' Father, have not the brothers eaten today?' and he said to him, 'Yea.' And the brother said to him, 'Why have you not called me?' The old man said to him, 'You are a spiritual man and have no need of the meat which is for the body, but we are corporeal beings, and we require to eat, and it is for this reason that we work. you have chosen the [good] part; read all day, and do not seek after the food of the body.' Now when that brother heard [this] he expressed his contrition, and said, 'Father, forgive me'; and the old man said, 'Even Mary bad need of Martha, for through the labour of Martha Mary triumphed.'

Novena to Our Lady of Fatima

Amen.   Pray 3 sets of: 1 Our Father, 1 Hail Mary, and 1 Glory Be
