A brother asked Ammon, "Speak a word to me." He said to him, "Go and meditate like the criminals in prison. They keep asking, where is the judge? When will he come? And because they are waiting for him they dread their punishment. The monk should always be waiting for his trial, chiding his soul, saying: 'Alas, how shall I stand before the judgment seat of Christ? How shall I give an account of my actions?' If you always meditate like this, you will be saved."
