St. Isaac the Syrian: Let them push you . . .

Icon of St. Isaac the Syrian“Let them push you, but do not push; Let them crucify you, but do not crucify. Let them insult, but do not insult. Let them slander, but do not slander. Be meek, and do not be zealous in evil.”

+ St. Isaac the Syrian, Homily, 89
