No, although it sounds a lot more dignified to call it accidie rather than sloth or something like that.  Tongue

No, I found myself groaning after reading inane post after inane post today.  And then I thought about the green poison control stickers I used to get in grade school to put on all the aerosol cans so that I could remind myself not to consume the contents.  The guy on the sticker is named Mr Yuk.  I felt like him today.  That's all.

Oh, OK.  I thought Mr. Yuk was supposed to exemplify something from St. Evagrius' Praktikos.

Bummer.

One wonders what St. Evagrius, or any of the Desert Fathers, would have said about religious discussion forums.

St. Ephraim the Syrian said:
O Lord and Master of my life, give me not the spirit of sloth, meddling, lust for power and idle talk.
But grant unto me, Thy servant, a spirit of chastity, humility, patience and love.
Yea, O Lord and King, grant me to see mine own faults and not to judge my brother. For blessed art Thou unto the ages of ages. Amen.

I remember that stuff. They must have done a good job drilling it into my head as a kid.

Mr. Yuk says no! Keep away! Do not touch!

Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.
