Three Requirements of God

“Abba Gregory said,

‘These three things God requires of all the baptized:

right faith in the heart,

truth on the tongue,

temperance in the body.

He also said, ‘The whole life of man is but one single day for those who are working hard with longing.’”

(St. Gregory the Theologian in The Sayings of the Desert Fathers, p 45)

      Sorry, but I don’t know. I saw that icon somewhere and photographed it because I liked it and thought it unique, but I didn’t record where I was when I took the picture, and no longer remember. I have no further information about it.
