Patristic Quote of the Day

The demon of acedia suggests to you ideas of leaving, the need to change your place and your way of life. He depicts this other life as your salvation and persuades you that if you do not leave, you are lost.—Evagrius of Pontus, Deocto vitiosis cogitationibus 12, [Cited from the marvelous work: The Noonday Devil. Great Lenten reading!]
