ON MENTORSHIP

The mentor who recedes to a mentee that speaks back at him improperly, he allows his mentee to wonder on this topic and prepares him to violate whatever rules of mentorship were set in the beginning of this relationship.

Abbas Mark the Egyptian

 

 

ADVICE ON COUNCELING A SINNER

If someone falls in sin but he says “I haven’t sin” do not try to reason and argue with him. It is better if you say “My brother do not lose your strength, but try to be careful for now on.” In this way you turn his soul towards repentance.

Venerable Pimen the Great
