Saint Anthony the Great on the Importance of One’s Neighbour

St. Anthony the Great

Our life and our death is with our neighbour. If we gain our brother, we have gained God, but if we scandalise our brother, we have sinned against Christ.

* This excerpt is from “The Sayings of the Desert Fathers” translated by Benedicta Ward
