Daily Reflection for October 23, 2018

Amma Sarah also said, “I put out my foot to ascend the ladder, and I place death before my eyes before going up it.”

A monk is always to “keep death before ones eyes (RB Chapter 4.)” Rather than being morbid, this is a way to be in touch with the true significance of our actions. We hold our intentions before God in anticipation of his judgment.
