Daily Lectio Divina: Father John the Dwarf

Daily Lectio Divina: Father John the Dwarf

Episode 549

In this episode of the guided lectio divina podcast, we’re continuing our Father’s Day series on Monastic Parental Wisdom using selections from The Wisdom of the Desert Fathers and Mothers translated by Henry L. Carrigan, Jr. with a saying of John the Dwarf.

Father John said, “…Use great patience in the love of God, with all the fervor of your soul and body. Exercise great humility; bear with interior distress; be watchful and pray often with reverence, with purity of speech and control of your eyes….Do your work in peace.”
