Science of the Saints, 19-VII-2018, St Sisoes the Great

“A brother asked Abba Sisoes, ‘What shall I do, Abba, for I have fallen?’ The old man said to him, ‘Get up again.’ The brother said, ‘I have got up again, but I have fallen again.’ The old man said, ‘Get up again and again.’ So then the brother said, ‘How many times?’ The old man said, ‘Until you are taken up either in virtue or in sin. For a man presents himself to judgment in the state in which he is found.'”
