St. Sabbas of Kalymnos: On what it means to be a monk

 A monk is one who suffers and weeps for his own sins and who pays no attention to the sins of others; who does not judge or get angry, but who endures patiently, with pleasure, every wrong and all contempt in order to achieve intimacy with God, the heavenly Judge and Father of all.
+St. Sabbas of Kalymnos, quoted in The Synaxarion, volume 4, his entry on April 7.
