A brother asked one of the fathers, saying, 'Tell me a word whereby I may live '; and the old man answered and said, 'We must be careful to work a little, and we must be neither negligent nor contemptuous, and then we may be able to live.'' And an old man told him the following story, saying, There was a certain prosperous husbandman who was exceedingly rich, and wishing to teach his sons husbandry he said to them, 'My sons, behold, see how I have become rich, and if you will be persuaded by me, [and will do as I have done], you will become rich also.' Then they said to him, 'Father, we will be persuaded [by you], tell us how [to become rich].' Now although the husbandman knew well that he who labours always becomes rich, yet because he thought that they might be negligent, and despise [work], he made use of cunning in his words, and said to them: There is one day in the year whereon if a man works he will become rich, but because of my exceedingly great old age I have forgotten which it is; therefore, you must work continually, and you must not be idle even one day, and you must by every possible means in your power go forwards. But if you are neglectful and disinclined to work, even for one day, take good heed to yourselves lest the day whereon you do not work be that very day, and that lucky day pass you by, and your labour for all the rest of the year be in vain. ' ' Thus also, O my brothers, if we labour and work each day, and we do not make use of sloth and negligence and contempt we will find the way of life.

  • 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.
