On Ascetical Life

St Isaac of Nineveh
translated by Mary Hansbury

Number 11 of Popular Patristics Series

“The beginning of virtue is the fear of God [which], is said [to be] the offspring of faith. Indeed it is sown in the heart when a man allows his mind to contain its roving impulses from the distractions of the world within the inner illuminations which arise from reflection on the order of the things to come. In laying the foundation of virtue, the first of its peculiar elements is when we withdraw ourselves in flight from things toward the luminous word of the straight and holy paths, that word which was called an enlightener by the Psalmist inspired by the Holy Spirit.”
