How Anthony the Great porridge brothers fed

Brothers came to Anthony the Great, asking: "How are we going to be saved?"

 

Great Anthony: "Do this and that."

 

Answer: "We can not."

 

Reverend Anthony: "Do this, then."

 

Again the answer: "We can not."

 

For the third time the saint: "Well, then do this and that."

 

Answer: "And this can not."

 

Rev. Anthony to his novice: "Cook gruel for him and let go in peace."

 

And the Holy Scripture says that the prophets also give advice “after the heart” of the questioner.
