The Devil's Wiles

Macarius wanted to encourage the brothers so he said, "A little while ago a mother came here with her son who was vexed by a devil, and he said to his mother, 'Get up, let us go away from here.' But she said, 'My feet are so bad that I can't walk away.' So her son said to her, 'I will carry you.' I am amazed at the cleverness of the devil, how much he wanted them to flee from this place."
