“Amma Theodora said that a teacher ought to be a stranger to the

Desire for domination, vainglory and pride. One should not be able to fool that person by flattery, nor blind that person by gifts…Rather, the teacher should be patient, gentle and humble as far as possible; the teacher must also be tested and be without favoritism, full of concern for others, and a lover of souls.”

-Theodora 5

“One day, Abba Poemen went with Abba Anoub to the district of

Dioclos. Arriving at the cemetery, they saw a woman in great sorrow, weeping bitterly. Standing there, they watched her. Going a little further, they met someone and Abba Poemen asked him: ‘Why is this woman weeping so bitterly?’ He replied: ‘Because her husband is dead, as well as her son and her brother.’ Abba Poemen told the brother: I tell you, if a person does not mortify all one’s carnal desires and acquire compunction like this, then that person cannot become a monk. Truly, the whole of this woman’s life and soul are turned to compunction.”

-Poemen 72
