Hi all,

Is there an etext site with the sayings of the Desert Fathers?

Much appreciated!   Grin

God bless.

This would be so cool.  Has anyone heard of anything like this?  Who could we bug about doing this if it is not already done?

Not that I am aware of. There are some sites that offer a collection of some sayings, but nothing comprehensive. I ended up having to go the my diocesan library to borrow the book by Benedicta Ward.

Through the intercession of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, may Jesus Christ bless you abundantly.

I wanted so much to share this with you since finding this site (which means today Cheesy).

That's nice. Thank you.

(I'm not sure whether this is legal in countries like the US, though)

On a related note, here's one of the Philokalia: http://www.orthodoxchristianity.net/forum/index.php/topic,46111.0.html

I'll bet I look like a goof.
