It was said that a brother in Saint Anthonys monastery in Pispir was accused of a certain sin so he went to St. Anthony. After a while, some of the brothers followed to complain about him and started throwing charges against him; whereas, he was defending himself.

St. Pephnotius then interfered, Ive seen a man fall into the water and sink into the mud to his knees. Some people came to help and pick him up but they drown him to the neck instead.

When St. Anthony the great heard that, he said, referring to St. Pephnotius, Look at this man! He can really win souls and save them.

→ English translation of the story here at St-Takla.org: في وسط الوحل.

Teach me to be kind to the weak,

For I am also weak.

Grant me to cover my brothers sins,

So that You would cover me.

When shall I see the world enjoying the fellowship of Your glory?
