A Legacy for Perfection

Cassian told this story about John, who was the father of a community because he was great in his way of life. When he was dying, he was cheerful, and his mind was set upon the Lord; his brothers stood around him and asked for a sentence that would sum up the way to salvation, which he could give them as a legacy by which they might rise to the perfection that is in Christ.

With a sigh, he said, "I have never obeyed my own will, and I never taught anyone to do anything which I did not do myself first."
