True Austerity

Benjamin, who was a priest in Cellia, said that some brothers went to a hermit in Scetis and wanted to give him some oil. But the hermit said, "Look, there is a little jar of oil which you brought me three years ago. It is still where you put it."

Benjamin said, "When we heard that, we were amazed by the hermit's austerity."
