Abba Isaac, the priest of the Cells, used to say: When I was a young man I used to dwell with Abba Chronius, and he never at any time told me to do any work; now he was an old man and he trembled, but he would stand up and give water with his hands to me, and to all of us alike. And with Abba Theodore of Parme it was the same, for he never told me to do any work whatsoever, but he would make ready the table with his own hands, and would say, Brother, come [and] eat.' And I said to him, ' Father, I came that I might assist you, and how is that you do not M tell me to do something?' But the old man in all this held his peace. And I went up and informed the old men, and they came to him, and said to him, ' Father, this brother came unto your holiness that he might be assisted [by you], and why do you not tell him to do something?'' Then the old man said to them, ' Am I the head of a monastery that I should give him a command? I will say to him nothing except that [I] wish him to do that which he sees me do.' And from that time I was always before him in doing that which the old man was going to do; now whatsoever he did, he did in silence, and in this manner he made me to know and taught me to work in silence also.

Novena to Our Lady of Fatima

Most Holy Virgin, who has deigned to come to Fatima to reveal to the three little shepherds the treasures of graces hidden in the recitation of the Rosary, inspire our hearts with a sincere love of this devotion, so that by meditating on the mysteries of our redemption that are recalled in it, we may gather the fruits and obtain the conversion of sinners, the conversion of Russia, and this favor that I so earnestly seek, request which I ask of you in this novena, for the greater glory of God, for your own honor, and for the good of all people. Amen.   Pray 3 sets of: 1 Our Father, 1 Hail Mary, and 1 Glory Be
