desert fathers

Abba Lot went to see Abba Joseph and he said to him, “Abba, as far as I can, I say my little office, I fast a little, I pray and meditate, I live in peace as far as I can purify my thoughts. What else can I do?”

Then the old man stood up and stretched his hands towards heaven; his fingers became like ten lamps of fire and he said to him, “If you like, you can become all flame.”
