St. Dorotheus of Gaza—On Self-Accusation
This is a listener-supported podcast! Thanks for your help!
“The man who thinks that he is quiet and peaceful has within him a passion that he does not see.”
St. Dorotheus was a 6th century Palestinian abbot who founded a monastery near Gaza. Excerpts of his instruction on self-accusation are found in the Office of Readings, and are particularly relevant in the wake of the violence and tension set off by the death of George Floyd.
Excerpts from Doct. 13, De accusatione sui ipsius, 1-3: PG 88, 1699
