Once upon a time, the story goes, Abba Lot went to see Abba Joseph.
He said, “Abba, as much as I am able, I practice a small rule, all the little fasts, some prayer and meditation, and remain quiet. What else should I do? "
To which the old monastic stood up and
stretched his hands toward heaven, and his fingers became like ten torches of flame. And
“Why not be completely turned into fire?”
